What if the suffering that we call depression contains experiences and lessons without which we cannot be fully alive?This is one of the many startling questions that Giving Up Without Giving Up invites us to ask ourselves. Depression seems to be a contemporary epidemic, a condition understandably feared and avoided by all. Yet this book explores the possibility that we have much to learn from the desert times in our lives, when it feels as though we are losing everything, most of all any sense of who we are. Drawing on his extensive experience of meditation within both the Buddhist and Christian contemplative traditions, as well as his own times of personal loss and bewilderment, Jim Green offers us a moving account of just how this wisdom practice can accompany each of us as we make ´´the gentle pilgrimage of recovery´´. He guides us through ´´the invention of depression´´ in the mid-20th century, questioning the increasing tendency to medicalize human suffering. Based on the insight that ´´Life is the Treatment´´, he offers a thorough and practical approach to our times of personal desolation, showing how we can learn to treat ourselves and each other with care and compassion. At the heart of this approach is the practice of meditation, learned from the Buddha, The Desert Fathers and Mothers, and Jesus himself. It´s a practice that, this heartfelt book insists, can help you ´´to be depressed - which might mean in mourning - for exactly as long as you need to be, no longer and no shorter. Then, changed, you are brought back to life, which is change itself.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom MacGairl. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/050674/bk_adbl_050674_sample.mp3.

For the first time, the remarkable couple depicted in the film The Blind Side tell their own deeply inspiring story. First came the best-selling book, then the Oscar-nominated movie—the story of Michael Oher and the family who adopted him has become one of the most talked-about true stories of our time. But until now, Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy have never told this astonishing tale in their own way and with their own words. For Leigh Anne and Sean, it all begins with family. Leigh Anne, the daughter of a tough-as-nails U.S. Marshal, decided early on that her mission was to raise children who would become ´´cheerful givers´´. Sean, who grew up poor, believed that one day he could provide a home that would be ´´a place of miracles´´. Together, they raised two remarkable children—Collins and Sean Jr.—who shared their deep Christian faith and their commitment to making a difference. And then one day, Leigh Anne met a homeless African-American boy named Michael and decided that her family could be his. She and her husband taught Michael what this book teaches all of us: Everyone has a blind side, but a loving heart always sees a path toward true charity. Michael Oher´s improbable transformation could never have happened if Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy had not opened their hearts to him. In this compelling, funny, and profoundly inspiring book, the Tuohys take us on an extraordinary journey of faith and love—and teach us unforgettable lessons about the power of giving. 1.

Gifts make slaves, like whips make dogs” is a saying from Greenland’s Inuit culture. How do you feel when someone gives you a gift? Grateful? Uncomfortable? Indebted? Our guests weigh in on how major philanthropy could change the world, and the donors themselves. And one woman´s effort to learn to refuse help when she doesn´t want it, and ask for it when she does. When Tracy Gary inherited a million dollars, she decided to give it all away. As a philanthropic advisory, she´s now helping others do the same. She spoke with Jim Fleming about transforming the culture of the so-called one percent´´, and the hidden gifts of giving. Then, Ralph Nader says he knows how to fix the United States. If he could just get a few super rich people to give him $15 billion, he´s got a plan for how to get it done. Next, there was an unexpected consensus among the people in Madison, Wisconsin, when we asked them whether it´s better to get or to give. And then, Marion Winik muses on macaroni and cheese, and the lessons it can teach parents - and kids - about giving. Following that, David Graeber takes us on a tour of gift giving, and gift economies. He also takes a swing at the question of whether it´s possible to give a truly selfless gift. Finally... It can be awkward to receive gifts. Especially if they’re gifts you don’t really want. The same goes for help. Haddayr Copley-Woods has been grappling with how to handle unwanted help since she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. [Broadcast Date: October 26, 2012] 1. Language: English.
