Nurturing our true selves, acknowledging when our ego is in control, and accepting God’s love enables us to be lovingly caring of others. This is a challenge for adults to master in a material world—but even harder for children. In My Loving Self and Me, author C. Beth Hoffman offers a collection of stories and poems that helps children understand this concept, and it gives them a jump start on their own spiritual path. The stories feature a brother and sister, Ike and Gabby, and their cousins as they encounter a variety of life experiences, such as dealing with hurt feelings, bullying, and fear. They better understand the ideas of gratitude, integrity, respect for nature, and more by finding answers through their loving connection with God. The stories presented in My Loving Self and Me demonstrate through Ike and Gabby’s open conversations with their parents, grandparents and each other, how important communication is. Reading this book with your children, listening to what they have to say, and discussing these and other topics that may arise, provides a forum for the open communication that is so valuable between parent and child.

Positive Psychology Across the Life Span provides an insight into how we are affected by the different stages of adult development and gives us the opportunity to change through choice rather than leaving change to chance. The science of positive psychology offers a wealth of research and evidence-based interventions and shares insights into which habits and behaviours contribute to how to live a flourishing life. This book aims to extend that knowledge by introducing and incorporating key aspects of existential and humanistic psychology and explores positive psychology with a lifespan perspective. It goes beyond theory to look at practical application, with insightful reflective questions. Whilst acknowledging the differences and disagreements between some of the key figures in the subject areas of the book, it seeks to highlight the areas where there is agreement and congruence which have been previously overlooked or ignored. The book will be essential reading for students and practitioners of positive psychology as well as other mental health professionals.

Forgiveness and Other Acts of Love: Finding True Value in Your Life (Large Print 16pt)

Author: Stephanie Dowrick

In this groundbreaking book Stephanie Dowrick reconsiders the six great humane virtues that can literally transform the way we see ourselves and others; the way we meet and move through difficulties or grief; the way that we can newly appreciate and treasure our own and others' gift of life. Starting with the essential quality of courage, Stephanie Dowrick also unpicks and makes newly relevant the timeless qualities of fidelity, restraint, generosity, tolerance and - finally - forgiveness. None of these transformative qualities, as she shows, are learned in the abstract. Until they are brought to life through daily existence they remain nothing but high ideals. But when lived, and especially when lived in the grit of difficult or challenging moments, they are profoundly life giving and supportive. Using a range of stories including her own, together with a rare breadth of psychological and spiritual experience and insight, Stephanie Dowrick offers a book that can illuminate some of life's toughest questions and restore your faith in what really matters.

Sit, Walk, Don't Talk

How I Survived a Silent Meditation Retreat

Jennifer Howd had been building a mindfulness practice for a few years before taking on the challenge of her first nine-day silent meditation retreat. In this debut memoir, she chronicles the humorous--and often harrowing--adventures of the dueling inner voices that emerge in the silence: one intent on focusing on the seemingly negative aspects of her experiences, and the other on helping her see the positivity that can come from them. Illuminating for those who are new to mindfulness and resonant for those with established practices, Sit, Walk, Don’t Talk: How I Survived a Silent Meditation Retreat also includes a helpful appendix listing tips for preparing for a silent meditation retreat, including a section for undertaking a retreat on your own. Sit, Walk, Don't Talk is written from a secular perspective and will appeal to folks who've never attended a residential retreat but are curious about the experience and want to get a taste of what to expect before possibly taking the plunge. Practitioners who dream of going on retreat but cannot make the time will also get a lot out of Howd's story, as well as folks who've been on many retreats and want to recapture the feeling without leaving home.
