The Art of Dreaming

By

Jill Mellick is ushering in a new era of dreamwork with her revolutionary approach to dream analysis through artistic expression.

Dream books that guide readers to work with their dreams invariably ask those readers to write their dreams down, or perhaps record them. The Art of Dreaming stands apart from all other dream books in that it invites readers to work with their dreams in whatever medium is most natural and beneficial to them. For some readers that might in fact be writing or talking, but for others it might be drawing or painting or working in clay or dancing or dramatizing or recreating movement or maskmaking or working in multimedia or creating poetry. This book is a beautiful integration of dreaming and creativity, one that takes readers to a place where they can work with both the essential and deep messages from their dreams.

The beautifully designed book makes use of illustrative icons to clearly indicate to readers the art medium for each activity, whether writing, drawing, painting, maskmaking, etc., giving readers the ability to go directly to the type of activity that most appeals to them.

Getting Over Getting Mad

Learn to Control Your Anger and Improve Relationships

Is the stress of life getting you mad? It’s time for you to have difficult conversations with yourself and with those around you to overcome your anger.

Don't let anger run your life. We all have issues that weigh heavily in our lives. Living in constant conflict isn’t something that you were destined for. If anger is something that you’ve been having a hard time controlling, then this is the book for you. Judy Ford crafted this book to provide you with practical and reliable tips to help guide you on your journey from anger to peace.

Anger has its benefits. Throughout time anger has been something that people have wrestled with, and feelings of shame and guilt frequently tend to follow. But what if anger can be used to help you communicate better in your everyday relationships? Getting Over Getting Mad highlights all the places anger can occur—with self, with partners, with children and with work colleagues. Once you identify the anger you can use the tools in this book to help you talk through that anger.

Personal growth will come. When you’re feeling stressed or overwhelmed, holding onto and lashing out in anger doesn’t help those already difficult situations. Judy Ford teaches us that when we choose to recognize our anger and observe (not attack) our feelings, we can free ourselves from responding negatively. We can then improve our communication with those around us.

Getting Over Getting Mad can help you take steps toward:

  • Living outside of anger
  • Communicating effectively in the relationships that mean the most to you
  • Reducing your stress

If you enjoyed books like Mindfulness for Anger Management, The Cow in the Parking Lot, or Good and Angry, then you should read Getting Over Getting Mad.

Giving Heart

By

Gratitude and generosity go hand in handthe more we appreciate our lives, the more we want to give to others. In A Grateful Heart, M. J. Ryan provided tools for expressing thanks. In the bestselling Attitudes of Gratitude, she taught us the inner work of realizing the many blessings we take for granted. Now, in The Giving Heart, she presents her latest examination of the virtues we need to cultivate for the twentyfirst century and takes a look at generosity: what creates it, what blocks it, and what the practice of generosity can bring to our lives.

In a series of short, heartfelt essays, Ryan encourages us all to stop living from what she calls "the ledger sheet mentality" of obligatory gifting, and to begin giving from the overflow of a loving heart. She asks readers to consider where and how they are stingy as well as where they are meant to give, and to contemplate all the types of possible generosity, because the giving of time, energy, kind words, loving gestures, and forgiveness may ultimately matter more than any amount of money.

In her downtoearth, accessible style, Ryan takes us to the heart of what it means to truly give, and what that giving can do not only for the recipient, but for ourselves, as well.

As the current economic boom brings attention to altruism and "giving back" The Giving Heart shows us how to experience joy, peace, and fulfillment when we live from a place of generosity.
