Tears in My Gumbo: The Caregiver's Recipe for Resilience is a heartfelt manuscript that speaks personally and passionately to the 44 million caregivers caught up in the silver tsunami sweeping this country and for all of the people who care about the caregivers. The book inspires and supports caregivers as well as the family unit involved in the loved one's care. Through a series of caregiver stories, the book illustrates the ingredients needed for caregivers to maintain resilience and create a soul-nurturing gumbo of care. Artfully written by caregiver coach and consultant Nadine Roberts Cornish, CSA, the book shares her personal experience as a caregiver for her mother, which transformed her life; she became a care consultant, a care manager, and a caregiver coach. A native of New Orleans, Nadine shares her rich family heritage simmered in the traditions of gumbo preparation, steeped in love and community, seasoned with wisdom, humor, and healing, much like a heaping bowl of Louisiana seafood gumbo. Each story teaches a different lesson demonstrating varying degrees of knowhow and courage. This book is ultimately about healing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nadine Roberts Cornish.

Being Generous (eBook, ePUB)
7,87 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This extraordinary little book has the power to heal and foster relationships, console and empower individuals, create community and help save the world by providing a spiritual ecology for our daily lives. Think that's a bold claim? It is, but it's also true. We can all be generous with our money when an occasion like Christmas rolls around, or when disaster strikes as it did with the Boxing Day tsunami of 2004. But Lucinda Vardey and John Dalla Costa say that this kind of giving segregates generosity, and makes it a special activity only for special times. If we're truly going to help this troubled world, as individuals we must investigate other possibilities for being generous as well, by helping those we interact with every day: our children, colleagues, parents, friends and the homeless men and women we encounter when out and about in our cities. We learn that the four most generous words in the English language are "I'm sorry” and "Thank you.” We learn that if we ask, "What do you need?” we may be surprised how readily we can provide assistance, and how a single generous act may turn into something that circulates to include many. Lucinda and John are a married couple who have committed-they say "humbly and imperfectly”-to making generosity a central practice in their daily lives. What they refer to as their art of right living, within family, work and community, is both a mode of being and a value that infiltrates all others. Generosity inspires and guides them, and continually tests and teaches them. This book is filled with true stories they've collected about generosity in action. Being Generous is their gift to readers, written to enable and encourage us to follow the generous way. She was famous for her work with the poor in the streets of Calcutta. One day a beggar by the road ran up to her with a small coin-financially worthless to anyone but him. It was his day's take on a long, hot and humid day, and he wanted to give it to her. She pondered what to do. If she took the money then he would have nothing at all, but if she rejected him, it would not only hurt him but insult his generosity. She stretched out her hand-he, who never had the chance to give, could give to Mother Teresa. The joy on his face said everything to her. The Lesson: Saying no to another's offer denies them the joy of giving. Accepting what they wish to give-even if you don't need it-is what practising true generosity is about. —from Being Generous

A media guru shows us how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and, above all, mindfully.Like it or not, knowing how to make use of online tools without being overloaded with too much information is an essential ingredient to personal success in the twenty-first century. But how can we use digital media so that they make us empowered participants rather than passive receivers, grounded, well-rounded people rather than multitasking basket cases? In Net Smart, cyberculture expert Howard Rheingold shows us how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and, above all, mindfully.Mindful use of digital media means thinking about what we are doing, cultivating an ongoing inner inquiry into how we want to spend our time. Rheingold outlines five fundamental digital literacies, online skills that will help us do this: attention, participation, collaboration, critical consumption of information (or "crap detection"), and network smarts. He explains how attention works, and how we can use our attention to focus on the tiny relevant portion of the incoming tsunami of information. He describes the quality of participation that empowers the best of the bloggers, netizens, tweeters, and other online community participants, he examines how successful online collaborative enterprises contribute new knowledge to the world in new ways, and he teaches us a lesson on networks and network building.Rheingold points out that there is a bigger social issue at work in digital literacy, one that goes beyond personal empowerment. If we combine our individual efforts wisely, it could produce a more thoughtful society: countless small acts like publishing a Web page or sharing a link could add up to a public good that enriches everybody.

World's Oldest Boy Survives Earthquake, Tsunami, Death and More. On His Journey to Enlightenment! Now that I've got your attention, this is not going to be a 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' kind of book. Instead, it is a very real, down-and-dirty, lusty life chronicle that could very possibly change your life. I'd say this book is more like an 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Dharma' adventure. So, if this is more your style, keep reading. I'm sure some of this book may be too radical for some blissed-out soul seeker types, but I've got to be real because truth is all I've got. I'm what you would call 'The bad boy of enlightenment' as I'm not your typical saintly soul seeker am quite rough around the edges! I eat meat, I prefer a good party to a group meditation, and I suffer from an array of personal defects. You're probably thinking, 'Gandhi he ain't.' And I will tell you, 'You're right!' But in spite of all that, I have always had a passionate desire to find God and figure out what the hell this 'enlightenment' thing is everyone talks about. Famous people claim it's the best buzz in the universe. Me? I've always liked a good buzz, so I figured enlightenment was for me, too. I wish someone would have shared their truth with me before I started my adventure. I might have been saved a scar or two. Of course, considering the way that I am, it probably wouldn't have made any difference. I seem to learn only through direct and dramatic experiences. Heck, why miss out on the adventure? Let me share some truth with you right now. Believe it or not, each of us is a spiritual being on a wondrous journey back home to God. The challenges we have in our life are but steppingstones that toughen us up and help us to learn the most important lesson of all: to Love. Quite simply, we are each a divine spark of God and God is Love. But many of us forget that fact and put ourselves through all sorts of ordeals, heartache, and unpleasant things as we struggle to make it through life. I certainly did and have the scars and broken bones to prove it. As a matter of fact, you could consider my tales are more like war stories. These war stories may turn your tummy inside-out.for the enemy was that dreadful! Who was this hideous enemy you might ask? The war I waged was against my own self, which made this thorny foe almost invincible. I'm here to tell you that no matter what you've been through in life, no matter how many mistakes and dumb things you think you've done: if I can reach enlightenment after all I've been through, then so can you!
