PARENTING JEWISH TEENS A Guide for the Perplexed Joanne Doades
Relationships with teenage children can be maddening and frustrating. They undergo the most peculiar transition from children you think you know into mysterious adolescent strangers you often wish you didn't.
Drawing upon the teachings, insights and wisdom that have sustained the Jewish people throughout the generations, this groundbreaking and invaluable guidebook will help you navigate the tumultuous journey of parenting a Jewish child into adulthood while asking - and answering - important questions, including: How is my Jewish teen's life different from my life when I was a teen? How do I cope with the pain of separation as my child enters the teenage years? What are the causes of the conflict between me and my teen and how can I help our family move through our most difficult moments? How must my own behaviour change as my teen grows older? Is it possible to live with differences in Jewish belief and observance within the same family during my child's teenage years? What are the unique challenges of parenting Jewish teens in special situations, such as an interfaith home; a special-needs teen; an adopted teen; or a teen who is engaged in risky or self-destructive behaviour?
PARENTING THE CHILDREN OF NOW Practicing Health, Spirit, and Awareness to Transcend Generations Meg Blackburn Losey
Parenting the Children of Now is the first book of its kind that addresses the needs of parents of Indigo and Crystal children. It teaches parents how to mine for their own truth, understand their purpose in life, stop sabotaging their own and their children's lives, discover their passion, and live their truth. Each chapter offers insightful ideas and strategies, and ends with exercises for parents to do for their own development and another set of exercises to do with their children.
Unless parents are comfortable with who they are, they can't help their children be who they are meant to be -- gifted beings with a message for humanity and the future of our world. This helpful book is one that parents will turn to again and again as they face struggles with their children, learn to live life to its fullest, and take pleasure in the life they are creating with their children with Dr. Meg's help.
Dr. Meg writes: We are faced with a generation of new children who are far more aware than children of previous generations. We need to get our acts together and get over our internal issues if we are to be the kind of parents and caregivers that the Children of Now need. Parenting the Children of Now addresses these issues with simple explanations and offers easy solutions.

THE PARENTS' GUIDE TO HIP DYSPLASIA is the only layperson's guide to one of the most common birth defects. Now instead of having to comb through medical texts or scour the internet for information, concerned parents of children with hip dysplasia can have all the information they need for treating their children at their fingertips.
Hip dysplasia affects 1 in 1,000 babies, either as developmental hip dysplasia (DDH) or congential hip dysplasia (CDH). With this condition, the child's hip joint structure does not fit together normally and the problem can grow worse as the child grows. If untreated, the condition can cause serious hip problems in adulthood.
Fortunately, this condition responds well to medical treatment and this book guides concerned parents through all of the options and obstacles of treating a child with hip dysplasia. The book covers hip anatomy, risk factors, how diagnosis is made, how to communicate with doctors about the condition and covers harnesses, braces, casts, surgery and potential complications for children ages 0-17. The book, also, addresses the special care needs of children with hip dysplasia and how to manage pain at home. It concludes with a list of resources.
Taken from Byron Katie's public events, parents and children use The Work to cut through the stressful thoughts that create family conflict. It's about how we project onto our parents and children, and teach each other to make war. It's about how our false beliefs keep us from knowing who we and our loved ones really are. By questioning our stressful beliefs and turning them around, we can see beyond our hurtful assumptions about the people we live with. We can reclaim our right to a loving family.

PASSIONATE BUDDHA Wisdom on Intimacy and Enduring Love Robert Sachs
Beginning his book with the ringing question 'what are you waiting for?' Robert Sachs goes on to interweave traditional Buddhist thought with the concerns of the modern couple. Using clear playful language Sachs describes the different aspects of healthy relationships within a Buddhist context. However rather than just setting an ideal he clarifies how Buddhist practices not only can be integrated into a modern lifestyle but also can be powerful tools for the many changes that occur in any loving relationship. Sachs also considers the role of each individual in a relationship showing that a couple may develop or possess qualities of being an indivisible unit but that where the real work lies is when two people are committed to grow and change with one another. He offers techniques for finding oneself both in and out of a relationship and ideas on how to deal with anger and other emotions that arise in the course of life - emotions that occur most intensely over the course of an intimate relationship. PASSIONATE BUDDHA acts as a guide for all those 'fumbling towards ecstasy' in today's confusing world of relationships. Interweaves Tantric Buddhist teachings with modern concerns such as monogamy and contraception. Gives a holistic view of a healthy relationship from physical pleasure to emotional connections and spiritual transformation. Discusses love in the broader Buddhist concepts of karma and reincarnation.
PAST LIFE DREAMWORK Healing the Soul through Understanding Karmic Patterns Sabine Lucas
In PAST LIFE DREAMWORK, Sabine Lucas examines “soul bloodlines” - character traits, talents and life issues that are the common elements and circumstances of successive past lives. Found threaded through our dreams, these bloodlines reveal the forces manifesting in this life and, taken together, they shape individuality as well as destiny within the reincarnation cycle. Though a wealth of past-life related material regularly surfaces in dreams, until now, dreamwork has been largely ignored as a therapy for successfully integrating past-life experiences.
Using the results of 27 years of personal and professional work, Lucas explains that past-life memories help us work out karma on the macro level and trauma on a micro level. She distinguishes three types of past-life dreams - classic, informatory and hybrid - and demonstrates how to distinguish these from other dreams. Her dramatic case studies illustrate the effectiveness of dream therapy in recognising and integrating the resonant and recurrent circumstances and ethical dilemmas that are played out in the subconscious mind. These psychologically revealing stories bear witness to how individuals are made whole through the integration of common strands of forgotten or repressed past lives. Lucas shows that the integration of past lives enriches the conscious self and, also, promotes universal tolerance through an understanding of the patterns of our psychic soul inheritance.
PAST LIFE HEALING CD Meditations To Release the Past & Enrich the Present 794504716528 Alana Fairchild
Your Soul has quite a story to tell. Sometimes the patterns in your life that won’t heal, despite your best efforts, are actually your Soul trying to get your attention. Once you go back and release the past, you become free in this lifetime to move on.
Past life healing is not about avoiding the present, but about enriching it, bringing more of our soul energy that spans many lifetimes into this lifetime, so that we can live in this life with more vitality, consciousness and ability.
The energy in this CD is unconditionally loving and will hold you safe as you travel back in time to unravel some of the mysteries in your own life, and bring more of your true Divine Self to your present life, where it can blossom and play.
A man's continuing and recurring dreams are so full of color and vivid details that he becomes convinced that they are not dreams, but memories. He realizes he is reliving scenes from a former life in the 1860's as a Confederate soldier. The dreams haunt him as he seeks validation of their reality. You will be amazed at the determination and dedication this man possessed to search out verification for every detail. It is the simplicity and honesty of his accounts that give them validity.
It was 1923, and a man named Arthur Lammers was receiving a psychic reading from Edgar Cayce when, for the first time in the readings, a person's past life was mentioned. From that point on, Edgar Cayce would give life readings (the second largest group of readings in the over 14,000 given by him), which often discussed how people's past lives were affecting them in their current life. Jaffin has pulled together invaluable insights on reincarnation and our purpose here on earth from the rich source of these Cayce readings to give us a deeper understanding of reincarnation in all its many aspects, physically, spiritually and mentally, while explaining how it supports us as we strive to fulfil the very purpose of our souls.
PAST LIVES AND PRESENT KARMA will give readers a deeper understanding of reincarnation and why it may be responsible for the people in your life today. Finally, Jaffin takes the reader beyond life on earth and into the role that planetary sojourns play as given by the psychic readings of Edgar Cayce.
PATCHWORK OF COMFORTS Small Pleasures for Peace of Mind Wiseman, Carol
Author Carol Wiseman asked people around the country to send her descriptions of their favorite comforts. The result is A Patchwork of Comforts, a collection of comforting and comfortable things to soothe body, mind, and spirit. Comforts are organized alphabetically--and Wiseman adds sidebars with bits of trivia, and even comforting recipes, such as a recipe for Zabaglione, a dessert sauce.
A-to-Z comforts include: * Alone Time: The only voice you hear is your own * Aromas: Trigger memories * Brainrest: A chance to recoup and regroup * Crosswords: The right word satisfies * Cuddling: Back to the womb * Daydreams: Going to the movies free * Dogs: Part of the family * Vacation: A break from responsibility * Water: Watch it, hear it, drink it, play in it * X-tra Time: Ditching the clock lets you finish...whatever * Young at Heart: Keeps you in the loop * ZZZ's: Renews and reactivates
There are plenty of comforting activities to take the sting out of even the worst days: sitting by a fire after a long walk in the cold; watching birds in the back yard; enjoying a big cup of homemade hot chocolate; bathing by candlelight; a weekend camping trip--with no electronic appliances.A Patchwork of Comforts is a homecoming in a book--welcoming, warm, and wise.
A book written especially for "one of those days," dipping into A Patchwork of Comforts is like a long soak in a hot tub.
PATH OF EMOTIONS Transform Emotions Into Energy to Achieve Your Greatest Potential Dr. Synthia Andrews
Do you feel there is more to reality than what your five senses reveal? Are emotions controlling the quality of your life? Do you avoid uncomfortable feelings or suppress past trauma?

On the contrary, emotions are the key to discerning energy reality. They are the language of subtle energy providing information, direction, motivation and vitality. Understanding and harnessing the power of emotions will help you make better decisions, heal your past and create the life of your dreams.
THE PATH OF EMOTIONS explains how emotions are the key to mind-body communication, translating information from subtle energy realms into useable guidance. Reading it will help you:
· Interpret your instincts and gut reactions · Expand your subtle energy awareness and increase your intuition · Identify and release emotions that are binding your energy, inhibiting your potential and causing physical pain and dysfunction · Free up and use the energy currently bound up in limiting emotional patterns · Use emotions to empower your intentions and manifest the life you desire

PATH OF MIRACLES The Seven Life-Changing Principles That Lead to Purpose and Fulfillment Samuel Rodriguez
Just as Christ's resurrection from his empty tomb happened not far from where he had been crucified, our victories usually happen close to the place of our most difficult circumstances. And just as Peter and John found folded linen placed intentionally where Christ's head and feet had lain, so can we find guideposts in our own lives' journeys. The goal: to recognize what God has placed throughout our journey in order to guide us toward fulfilment.
Taking the story of Jesus and the empty tomb as his basis and inspiration, Reverend Rodriguez explains how these life-changing principles can be learned to create a richer, transformed life.
