A Practical, Soul-Centered Guide to Job Hunting and Career-Life Planning
Author: Haley Fox
Category: Business & Economics
Life is too short to be spent at a job that holds no personal value—or, in the worst-case scenario, a job that evokes apathy, misery, or contempt. And yet, many of us feel painfully insecure about our abilities to find meaning and satisfaction in work. Everyone deserves that joy and satisfaction, but many people behave as though they don’t deserve it. In Follow Your Bliss!, author Haley Fox shows that you deserve more than just a job. You deserve bliss, and you have the potential to achieve it. You have an obligation to use the gifts and talents that uniquely equip you for soul-nourishing work. This second edition, first published in 2000 under the author’s former name, Helen Nienhaus Barba, has been updated and expanded, offering more current information about the working world. This volume journeys through the entire job-seeking process, beginning with getting a lay of the land, then taking stock of who you are and what you have to offer, and finally acquiring the skills to master the nuts and bolts of job hunting. Topics include preparing a portfolio of application materials, goal-setting, and fine-tuning interview skills. Imaginative exercises offer practical guidance grounded in an awareness of bliss as a guiding force. Drawing upon years of experience as an artist and psychotherapist, Fox offers a unique, heart-based, antichecklist approach to career-life planning.

Dr. Donald Hodder has woven tales of joy and sorrow, humour and fulfillment into this compelling memoir. He practised family medicine for over forty-five years, all of it in his native Newfoundland. During his career, he kept many notebooks detailing his experiences. These became the foundation for this book. In studied prose and lilting verse, with integrity and compassion, he interlaces autobiographical material with social commentary on people and happenings in his life. He witnessed a broad spectrum of human conditions: the mundane, the miraculous, the physical, the psychological, and the social. He feels immensely honoured to have shared in the most intimate aspects of daily life with thousands of patients for so long. He is, at times, absolutely serious, skillfully witty, and hilariously funny. You are invited to sit at his table of memories and be entertained, enlightened, and enriched. Enjoy!
Dee has a wealth of experience to draw upon, and her latest book is truly a gem worth reading. It is an honor to be her friend and counselor, and to have witnessed her journey of growth and transformation. Jody Wood MSW

Author: Don Lattin
Renowned journalist Don Lattin, longtime reporter for the San Francisco Examiner and more recently the San Francisco Chronicle, interprets the American spiritual and religious landscape since the 60s with insight, wit, and telling reporting. What David Brooks did for the American social and commercial landscape in the bestselling Bobos In Paradise, he does for the spiritual landscape, showing how the 60s have had a profound transformative impact in every area of spirituality. This is the first comprehensive look at the spiritual legacy of the 60s and 70s, as seen through the lives of those raised amid some of the era’s wildest experimentation.
Change the way you move . . . and you can change the way you feel, the way you act, and the way you’re perceived. That’s the promise of EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE: Bodymind Exercises to Transform Your Life. We’ve long known that changing our mental or emotional focus can help change our physical state (think of stress management for patients at risk for heart attacks or visualizations to improve athletic performance). It’s themind-to-body connection, and it’s something that’s readily accepted in today’s world. Less well explored is the other side of the equation: the relationship between body and mind: Change your physical state and you can change your mental or emotional focus; change the way you move in deliberate, carefully prescribed ways—that is, repattern your body—and you can repattern your mind, emotions, and spirit in ways that let you live your life more fully, more authentically, and more joyously. Every Move You Make gives you practical tools in the form of ten basic movements that help stimulate and support changes you need to make your life work better. Also included are several partner exercises to improve the quality of your relationships. The movements are easy and relaxing to do, and are illustrated in photographs throughout the book. Chapters address different aspects of life: self-image, stress, career, creativity, relationships, sexuality, anxieties, and compulsions. You’ll identify with the case studies of real people that Nikki Winston has worked with—all of whom have successfully made the changes described.
"[You're Accepted] is wonderfully written, in a style that will appeal to everyone involved in the process--student, parent, guidance counselor." --Elizabeth Lesser, cofounder of the Omega Institute and New York Times bestselling author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow Students may worry about SATs and grades, but university admissions coach Katie Malachuk knows that it takes much more than numbers to chart the right path to college. To help applicants (and their families) make enlightened decisions, she transforms the application process into one of self-discovery, rather than self-delusion. Katie's approach strips away the destructive, competitive energy and replaces it with revelations about how to uncover your innate talents and true self. With great humor and insight, You're Accepted makes a convincing case that presenting the real, authentic you (not some smooth, packaged version) actually increases your chances of getting into college. The former admissions director shares insider tips on everything from writing essays to seeing things from the admissions committee's point of view. You're Accepted brings higher fulfillment to higher education by helping you get into the college that's right for you--the one that will help you become the person you're meant to be.
