An essential resource for people who practice mindful living, or for anyone interested in liturgy, the newly revised Chanting from the Heart reflects Thich Nhat Hanh's contemporary emphasis on ecumenism. The book contains traditional and contemporary chants and recitations for daily spiritual practice; ceremonial texts for special occasions like weddings, remembering the deceased, and honoring Buddha’s birthday; and verses for day-to-day activities such as blessing a meal, sweeping, drinking tea, and washing the dishes. Also included are more than 20 discourses comprising some of Buddha’s most fundamental teachings, including the Heart Sutra, the Discourse on the Mindfulness of Breathing, the Discourse on Happiness, the Discourse on Taking Refuge in Oneself, and the Discourse on Love. This lovely book is a quintessential reference for Buddhist practitioners on any level of experience and for anyone who wants to celebrate life and the art of mindful living.

The three spunky ladies who so charmed readers in The Ladies of Convington Send Their Love and The Gardens of Covington welcome us back to the small Southern town of Covington, to their quaint white farmhouse with yellow shutters on Cove Road. Life lessons abound throughout From the Heart of Covington, as housemates Hannah, Grace, and Amelia continue to surround themselves with love and hope, meeting each new challenge with equanimity and heart and placing their trust in one another as their friendship strengthens and grows. In helping a dear friend and neighbor cope with illness, the ladies develop a deeper mutual compassion and a true appreciation for the softness of heart and toughness of spirit that join them as women. Amelia, feeling strong and adventurous, takes a momentous trip to New York City to further her burgeoning photography career. Grace, kindhearted as ever, becomes involved with a little girl at the local elementary school who may be having terrible problems at home. Meanwhile, Hannah's daughter, Laura, is involved in a tragic accident that has serious consequences for all concerned. With the same compassion and heart readers have already come to know and love, Joan Medlicott once again reveals how life's journeys and challenges only strengthen our loving commitments to family, friends, and loved ones. It's another inspiring message of courage, self-acceptance, and hope.

Marriage is God's idea. He has no bad ideas. He brought Eve to Adam, married them and they lived as husband and wife for over 900 years (Genesis 2:21-25 and 5:5). By this, we can conclude that divorce was not God's idea but Satan's idea, to destroy God's ideas, plans and purpose of marriage between a man and a woman. We seek to find the right person when the greater picture is to be the right person. Man sets the time for the wedding, but God sets the time for the marriage. There is a great difference between a wedding and a marriage. Many walk down the aisle to be wedded for all the wrong reasons. Saying "I do" and placing wedding rings upon fingers does not always mean they are married within their hearts. This book reveals that a man and a woman may marry, and yet not be a true husband and wife. It stresses the importance of friendship, courtship, engagement and being married from the heart. Introducing a revolutionary approach to the covenant of marriage, this book addresses commitment, romance, love, keeping a right heart, a sound mind and a pure relationship. Dr. Donald R. Downing is a heart physician and specialist from God to the body of Christ. He has written over 12 books, and considers Marriage from the Heart to be one of his most important writings. He believes the only way to defeat the high rate of divorce and separation is to restore romance to the relationship and to be truly married from the heart. FEATURING DRS. MELVIN AND ROBIN THORNHILL Melvin and Robin Thornhill are the founders and presidents of Destiny New Image Ministries. They have a combined 50 years of experience in family and marriage counseling.

Our common belief in business is that the heart has no place in workplace management. In fact, most of us were taught that the heart acts like Kryptonite in leadership: it inherently undermines a manager’s effectiveness – and lowers productivity and profitability. In this stunning and groundbreaking work, however, engagement expert, Mark C. Crowley, provides irrefutable proof that we were wrong. Crowley begins by showing us how traditional leadership practices are failing. Across the globe, employee engagement and job satisfaction scores have fallen to crisis levels. According to astonishing research from Gallup, 70% of the US workforce is now disengaged. It once was that a job and a paycheck kept workers satisfied and productive. Today, pay barely makes the list of what inspires people to put their hearts into their work and contribute to their highest capacity. Right before our eyes, human beings have evolved in what they need and want in exchange for work. 21st Century employees are seeking to find purpose, meaning and feelings of significance. What drives their engagement is feeling valued, respected, developed and cared for. Crowley’s profound insight draws upon recent medical science discoveries which prove it’s the heart, and not the mind, that drives human motivation and achievement. There’s nothing soft about Lead From The Heart. It represents the future of workplace management and a roadmap to driving uncommon engagement, productivity and profitability.

I see the clouds drifting into my blue skies. I keep saying to myself it is not going to rain. I felt a few raindrops in the past, it did not rain. Now the wind is getting stronger, I hear thunder. All of the sudden my blue skies turn grey from the dark clouds. I feel the effects of the rainstorms.

This book contains over twenty-eight different types of poetry, with explanations and examples of each type. Many of my poems are romantic, such as My Beloved, Ode to Melissa, To Love a Woman, My Hearts Desire, Love, and My Love. While others are inspirational, like Forgiveness, Hope, The Seven Virtues, Empathy, and Kindness. Still others are philosophical in nature, such as my poems Living, True Freedom, Who Knows What Tomorrow Brings, and The State of the Economy. My kyrielle poem Life could be said to be both inspirational and philosophical. Some of my poems are educational, like The Benefits of Reading, which extols the virtues of reading, and To Be Young Again, which talks about nutrition and exercise. Some are family-oriented poems, such as my poem Little Bit, which I wrote for my niece Kristin, or Camping with Younger Brother, which I wrote for my brother Craig, or Little Child, which I wrote for all the little ones in the world. Other poems are devoted to naturelike my Froggy, Turtle, Tornado, and Mother Nature poemsor to mankind in general, such as Earth on Which We Live and True Happiness. And others were written with some fun in mind, like the poem Nude I wrote in response to an online contest to rhyme the last word in each line with the word nude. (Birthday Lesson is another fun poem like this.) I also did a series of seven poems on each of the seven deadly sins, where I used archaic language to spoof each of these sins, which unfortunately often plague mankind. I truly hope you will enjoy reading the poems contained in this book.

It is with joy that I share the gift of spirit with you. The intention of this collection of thoughts, reflections, poems, and songs is to assist in awakening the heart and spirit of humanity, and to reconnect people with their innate wisdom. It is in living from the heart that we as a species, and the rest of creation, may heal. By reconnecting with our innate wisdom, we receive direction from the Creator, and can live our lives in truth, integrity, and unconditional love; our purpose and mission for our time here on Mother Earth becomes clear, and we can express ourselves to our fullest potential. In Love and Unity in the Mission of Global Healing, Louise Shingwauk Niibana Noodinan (Tall Pine, Many Winds)
