In her most affirming and life-changing book yet, Dr. Harriet Lerner teaches us how to restore love and connection with the people who matter the most. In The Dance of Connection we learn what to say (and not say) when: We need an apology, and the person who has harmed us won´t apologize or be accountable We don´t know how to take a conversation to the next level when we feel desperate We feel worn down by the other person´s criticism, negativity, or irresponsible behavior We have been rejected or cut off, and the other person won´t show up for the conversation We are struggling with staying or leaving, and we don´t know our ´´bottom line´´ We are convinced that we´ve tried everything, and nothing changes Filled with compelling personal stories and case examples, Lerner outlines bold new ´´voice lessons´´ that show us how to speak with honor and personal integrity, even when the other person behaves badly. Whether we´re dealing with a partner, parent, sister, or best friend, The Dance of Connection teaches us how to navigate our most important relationships with clarity, courage, and joyous conviction. 1.

In a career that has spanned four decades, choreographer Twyla Tharp has collaborated with great musicians, designers, thousands of dancers, and almost a hundred companies. She´s experienced the thrill of shared achievement and has seen what happens when group efforts fizzle. Her professional life has been - and continues to be - one collaboration after another. In this practical sequel to her national best seller The Creative Habit, Tharp explains why collaboration is important to her - and can be for you. She shows how to recognize good candidates for partnership and how to build one successfully, and analyzes dysfunctional collaborations. And although this isn´t a book that promises to help you deepen your romantic life, she suggests that the lessons you learn by working together professionally can help you in your personal relationships. These lessons about planning, listening, organizing, troubleshooting, and using your talents and those of your coworkers to the fullest are not limited to the arts; they are the building blocks of working with others, like if you´re stuck in a 9-to-5 job and have an unhelpful boss. Tharp sees collaboration as a daily practice, and her book is rich in examples from her career. Starting as a 12-year-old teaching dance to her brothers in a small town in California and moving through her work as a fledgling choreographer in New York, she learns lessons that have enriched her collaborations with Billy Joel, Jerome Robbins, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, David Byrne, Richard Avedon, Milos Forman, Norma Kamali, and Frank Sinatra. Among the surprising and inspiring points Tharp makes in The Collaborative Habit: Nothing forces change more dramatically than a new partnership. In a good collaboration, differences between partners mean that one plus one will always equal more than two. A good collaborator is easier to find than a good frien... 1. Language: English.

From the celebrated author of The Dance of Anger comes an extraordinary book about mothering and how it transforms us - and all our relationships - inside and out. Written from her dual perspective as a psychologist and a mother, Lerner brings us deeply personal tales that run the gamut from the hilarious to the heart-wrenching. From birth or adoption to the empty nest, The Mother Dance teaches the basic lessons of motherhood: that we are not in control of what happens to our children, that most of what we worry about doesn´t happen, and that our children will love us with all our imperfections if we can do the same for them. Here is a gloriously witty and moving book about what it means to dance the mother dance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Suzanne Toren.

Can two left feet lead to one perfect romance? Grant Nichols is a genius in the kitchen and a klutz on the dance floor. But his friend´s wedding is shaping up to be a shindig the likes of which Kings Meadow has never seen - including dancing. Lots of dancing. Then he learns that a local dance teacher, Skye Foster, is offering dance lessons for the wedding party. The first lesson is free, so what does he have to lose? A former rodeo queen, Skye Foster teaches children ballet and tap during the day, but with the popularity of ballroom dancing and her own love of country swing, she´s been teaching adults in the evenings. Grant comes from a family of 10 siblings. He was the second oldest and believes he´s had his fill of little rug rats. He´s happy with his bachelor state despite the fact that he´s given up his ladies´ man lifestyle. Even he admits to his wilder nature and has been trying to clean up his act, with God´s help. Skye, on the other hand, loves being around kids. She would love to find the right guy and settle down to have half a dozen children of her own. Grant and Skye are no match on paper.
