So much of children’s time is spent indoors, and they have little contact with nature. Author G. Bilodeau-Gramm seeks to change that. In Walking with Grandma, she inspires adults to get outside with their children and grandchildren to discover and explore. Through the eyes of Becca and her grandmother, this story shares a wide range of information and knowledge about the outdoors. It offers a look at the spiritual side of nature by promoting an understanding of the language of the heart. It discusses ancient teachings such as being thankful for the gifts nature provides, being aware of the messages from nature spirits, and recognizing the sacredness in all things. It includes wisdom from indigenous elders and even those in other realities. It encourages children to act with gratitude, respect, and compassion, and it demonstrates many ways to use the five senses to appreciate the world. With follow-up lessons and activities included, Walking with Grandma teaches children about life by using examples found in nature. It communicates the magic, wonder, and joy of the outdoors.

Foreword Reviews Book of the Year Finalist: Body, Mind & Spirit Nautilus Silver: Death & Dying/Grief and Loss IPPY Silver: New Age/Mind-Body-Spirit Change Maker is Rebecca Austill Clausen’s story of her discovery that she could communicate with her brother after he died. Following this realization, a world she never imagined opened up to her—even as she doubted her sanity and feared she would lose the respect of her colleagues, as well as the love and support of her family. Austill Clausen struggled with how her spiritual awakening and eventual spiritual transformation could mesh with the practical everyday world—the one where she had a rapidly growing rehabilitation business to run, and where she was known as a knowledgeable, science-based expert in the field of occupational therapy. Each chapter of Change Maker explores spiritual beliefs and understanding, includes an original black-and-white illustration by Micki McAllister, and ends with an “Illumination”—guidance, suggestions, encouragement, and inspiration for readers who wish to pursue their own spiritual journey. The end result is a book that blends the best of memoir, self-help, new-age philosophy, and inspiration.

Wie findet man das wahre Glück? Wie lässt sich Erfolg wirklich bemessen? Und wie geht man mit den Herausforderungen des Alltags wie Wut, Trauer und der Frage nach dem Sinn des Ganzen um? Was große Geister wie George Washington, Friedrich der Große, Weltklassesportler oder Top-Performer längst für sich entdeckt haben, liegt mit "Der tägliche Stoiker" erstmals gesammelt vor. New York Times-Bestsellerautor Ryan Holiday und Stephen Hanselman haben das Wissen der Stoiker in 366 zeitlose Lektionen verpackt und zeigen, dass die Philosophie des Stoizismus nicht nur zeitlos, sondern gerade für unsere hektische und unsichere Zeit ein Segen ist. Weisheit, Mut, Gerechtigkeitssinn und Selbstbeherrschung sowie Gelassenheit lassen sich erlernen und helfen uns, in der zunehmenden Komplexität unserer Welt zu bestehen. Die uralten Weisheiten der Stoiker, gesammelt und kommentiert, unterstützen bei diesen alltäglichen Herausforderungen.
