Buy this one book and you will have all you need to guide you through an affordable year's worth of meaningful and memorable Book Club Gatherings. Available in hardcover with full color imagery, or in paperback with black and white interior, this book will be valuable not only to book club participants, but to therapists, coaches, teachers, youth leaders, couples and families. Award winning workshop designer, facilitator, coach and somatic psychotherapist, Ruthie Landis writes in collaboration with Mind, Body, Heart, the Enneagram, Nature, Intuition and the Creative Force and has woven her co-creators' innate wisdom into twelve guided journeys. In this book you will find catalyzing chapters that facilitate connected, reflective, and growth driven experiences, while at the same time helping you develop a deeper, kinder relationship with yourself. There are accessible, thoughtfully written explorations around human conditions from topics such as decision-making, loneliness, self-forgiveness, self-esteem, giving and receiving, and finally reclaiming personal wholeness in a challenging and critical world. More than just a story and workbook and journaling opportunity, through shared reading and creative learning activities participants will experience each other and themselves in a safe, nonjudgmental space, with the author's expert guidance. Many people these days crave face-to-face contact when screen-to-screen is the norm. And it is hard to know how to make that happen. Friends form book clubs in an effort to achieve this, but many don't even have the time to read the book. With Beyond the Bookclub: We Are The Books We Must Read, you don't need to read a new book every month, merely move on to the next chapter and learn how to read yourself, the most important book of all. We live in a society that is divisive and often cruel, cold, and asleep. So this is a call to action. The Universe is begging, no screaming, for us to do our inner work and stop avoiding our shadows and our shame. In these times, we need to expotentially grow more people who are awake, intentional, and emotionally and spiritually healthy. With the help of this book's short powerful stories and illuminating, playful and experiential scripts, you can gather your tribe, grow yourself, and build communities that know and live from compassion, awareness, love, and grace.

The first complete guide-for use by adults and children-to creating fun and educational book clubs for kids. As authors of The Book Club Cookbook, the classic guide to integrating great food and food-related discussion into book club gatherings, Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp hear a common refrain from parents, librarians, teachers, community leaders and kids themselves: "How about writing a book for kids' book clubs?" Indeed, in recent years youth organizations, parents, libraries, schools, and our local, state, and federal governments have launched thousands of book clubs for children as a way to counter falling literacy rates and foster a love of reading. Based on surveys representing five hundred youth book clubs across the country and interviews with parents, kids, educators, and librarians, The Kids' Book Club Book features: _- the top fifty favorite book club reads for children ages eight to eighteen; _- ideas and advice on forming great kids' book clubs-and tips for kids who want to start their own book clubs; _- recipes, activities, and insights from such bestselling children's book authors as Christopher Paolini, Lois Lowry, Jerry Spinelli, Nancy Farmer, Christopher Paul Curtis, Andrew Clements, Laurie Halse Anderson, Norton Juster, and many others. From recipes for the Dump Punch and egg salad sandwiches included in Kate DiCamillo's Because of Winn-Dixie to instructionson how to make soap carvings like the ones left in the knot-hole of a tree in Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, this book provides a bounty of ideas for making every kids' book club a success.

Do you dread going to work? Have you become so weary and depleted you can’t wait until the end of your shift? Have expanded regulations and limited resources dashed your dreams of caring for the people you serve? Have you lost the joy you once experienced in your job? If so, you are not alone. Burnout is an enormous problem for those in the helping professions. Author Dr. Alan Shelton knows the pain of burnout. He’s struggled through those dark feelings himself. As Clinical Director of the Puyallup Tribal Health Authority, Shelton now oversees a large ambulatory clinic which offers multiple services while seeing his own patients. Not long ago, however, burnout nearly sidelined him. Then a remarkable meeting with a Native Healer gave him surprising insight into his situation. Instead of resigning or changing professions, Shelton found a way to recover his passion for his work and use his new creative energy to address issues. Life Beyond Burnout traces Dr. Shelton’s journey from a depressed, hopeless, and encumbered physician to an energetic, creative, and enthusiastic caregiver. In this self-help book, Shelton shares the secrets he discovered while finding his way back. Whatever you do, if it involves helping people, you know how difficult it is to keep giving, day after day. But by rediscovering and growing your inner life, you can recover the joy and excitement you felt when you first began your career.

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER• OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB PICK • WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION • NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD WINNER• A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK • MORE THAN 1 MILLION COPIES SOLD “Quietly powerful [and] moving.” O, The Oprah Magazine (recommended reading) Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award, GILEAD is a hymn of praise and lamentation to the God-haunted existence that Reverend Ames loves passionately, and from which he will soon part. In 1956, toward the end of Reverend John Ames's life, he begins a letter to his young son, an account of himself and his forebears. Ames is the son of an Iowan preacher and the grandson of a minister who, as a young man in Maine, saw a vision of Christ bound in chains and came west to Kansas to fight for abolition: He "preached men into the Civil War," then, at age fifty, became a chaplain in the Union Army, losing his right eye in battle. Reverend Ames writes to his son about the tension between his father--an ardent pacifist--and his grandfather, whose pistol and bloody shirts, concealed in an army blanket, may be relics from the fight between the abolitionists and those settlers who wanted to vote Kansas into the union as a slave state. And he tells a story of the sacred bonds between fathers and sons, which are tested in his tender and strained relationship with his namesake, John Ames Boughton, his best friend's wayward son. This is also the tale of another remarkable vision--not a corporeal vision of God but the vision of life as a wondrously strange creation. It tells how wisdom was forged in Ames's soul during his solitary life, and how history lives through generations, pervasively present even when betrayed and forgotten.
