THE THREE FACES OF MINDTHE THREE FACES OF MIND : Developing Your Mental, Emotional, And Behavioral Intelligences - Elaine de Beauport with Aura Sofia Diaz Foreword by Joseph Chilton Pearce. The question is not how smart you are, it's HOW you are smart! We all know that engineers can often "see" a bridge or building in their mind's eye before it is built and that great actors can communicate a complex mood or feeling with a simple gesture or facial expression. Yet despite the success of books like Daniel Goleman's Emotional Intelligence, many teachers and corporate personnel directors still assume that these skills are not part of intelligence and that how well we process facts and figures is the best measure of how smart we are. In this ground-breaking book, based on twenty-four years of teaching and research, Dr. Elaine de Beauport shows that our three-part brain has at least ten intelligence's, some mental, some emotional, and some behavioral. With stories and simple exercises, Dr. de Beauport teaches us to access and orchestrate all ten, discovering new skills in the process. Elaine de Beauport, Ed.D., is the founder of the Mead School for Human Development and the Self-Care Training Program, which she has taught to medical professionals and educators in both North and South America. Dr. de Beauport lectures and gives workshops widely and lives in Venezuela and New York City. ISBN 0835607488 (Theos Pub) hc

UNCONDITIONAL BLISSUNCONDITIONAL BLISS  - Finding Happiness in the Face of Hardship
An introduction to Living The Questions by Howard Raphael Cushnir - "Clear and practical, honest and wise. Howard Cushnir's questions can help us plumb life's mystery and joy."---
Lama Surya Das
, author of Awakening The Buddha Within.

We can be happy in spite of hardship, heartbreak, or a job we hate. Pie-in-the-sky? This down to earth guy shows us how. When personal tragedy struck, Howard Cushnir already knew the Zen practice of staying in the moment. But he wasn't prepared for the gift of grace he received. One day, all but lost, he was suddenly suffused with a complete sense of well-being---not a passing experience, but one available from then on. Paying close attention to the changes in his own inner states, Howard soon realized that feeling blissful is a choice we can always make, regardless of our circumstances. His message is profound, but his method couldn't be more practical. All we do is ask ourselves two simple questions..............

Howard Raphael Cushnir is a screenwriter whose film Sexual Healing won Grand Prize at the Houston Film Festival. A former journalist and elementary school teacher, he wrote for publications such as Mother Jones and authoried a children's book, The Secret Spinner. He lives in Mill Valley, California.

Visual JournalingVISUAL JOURNALING, Going Deeper Than Words - Barbara Ganim and Susan Fox

Most people who journal use words. But words come from the left brain, which interprets experiences through our learned beliefs and expectations. As this breakthrough book demonstrates, there is a more effective way to journal - using images. Simple drawings, crayon art, even doodles and stick figures can help anyone - even those who believe they "can't draw" - move beyond thought into deep reaches of feeling and intuitive knowing.

Barbara Ganim and Susan Fox have developed their Visual Journaling technique into an acclaimed workshop. This book, beautifully illustrated with black and white and color drawings from the journal of students in their workshops, makes this enjoyable tool for personal exploration accessible to everyone. A six-week plan of exercises and interpretive activities teaches readers a lifelong practice that can reduce stress, anger, fear, and other negative emotional states, explore conflicts, and overcome obstacles. Its simple techniques can help everyone gain access to "soul-based" inner wisdom.

Author: Barbara Ganim, M.A.E., teaches expressive art therapy at Salve Regina University in Rhode Island. Her first book was Art and Healing: Using Expressive Art to Heal Your Body, Mind, and Spirit. Susan Fox, M.A.E., is a certified holistic counselor and expressive art therapist.

Your Soul At WorkYOUR SOUL AT WORK : Nicholas W Wieler and Stephen C Schoonover, M.D. 

Loss of morale, burnout and attrition, especially among professional and managerial employees, have become issues of serious and increasing concern for both individuals and their companies and organizations. Many in the workforce are experiencing a nagging, difficult-to-pinpoint frustration-a growing sense of being too driven, with little or no time for family, important relationships or other personal values. They long for a greater sense of fulfillment and spiritual growth in what they are doing. They look for community and meaning in their jobs.

Your Soul at Work addresses these concerns in two ways: It uses universally agreed concepts of spirituality as a framework and places the process of career planning into this larger viewpoint. It goes on to present a number of very practical, workshop-proven tools and techniques, including a detailed Career and Life Workbook.
Nicholas Weiler and Stephen Schoonover, two seasoned career experts, present a strategy that has been fine-tuned and used very successfully for many years in a broad spectrum of career specialties across the world, including such Fortune 500 companies as IBM, AT&T, Hewlett-Packard, Lockheed Martin, General Electric, Citibank, Xerox, Sun Microsystems, Sprint, Eastman Kodak, Apple and Pfizer.

Your Soul at Work differs from the many spiritually oriented "self-help" books and the business-oriented "how-to" career development books by bridging the gap between straight spiritual and straight business writing. It will enable readers to integrate their career endeavors with their more personal and spiritual needs and to ultimately find vocations and lives with real meaning.

Author: Nicholas Weiler, after a long human resources career with General Electric, is now an independent consultant. In the 1990s he designed a new worldwide Leadership Development Program that GE has introduced in the United States, Europe, Asia, Mexico and South America. He is the author of the Macmillan Executive Book-of-the-Month selection Reality and Career Planning. He holds a B.A. from Fordham University and an M.A. in psychology from Washington University. He resides with his family in Fairfield County, Connecticut. ISBN 1587680068

THE ZEN OF LISTENINGTHE ZEN OF LISTENING, Mindful Communication in the Age of Distraction - Rebecca Z. Shafir, M.A. CCC - In this age of distraction, barriers to listening are everywhere: poor attention spans, multitasking, obsession with time/speed, self-consciousness, and the constant noise - radio, phone, TV, traffic - all of which interferes with our ability to get "the whole message." Rebecca Shafir assures us we can make powerful connections and transform our lives simply by remembering how to listen. Her book is based on the Zen concept of mindfulness, which teaches how to filter out distractions and be totally in the present. In business, for instance, mindful listening helps us create allies instead of target sales, achieving a win/win outcome.

This fun, practical guide is full of simple strategies we can use immediately to enjoy our personal and professional lives, including how to: *Enhance relationships *Intensify concentration *Strenghten negotiating skills *Stay focused under stress *Reduce memory loss *Use time more efficiently *Increase attention span *Create loyal customers *Get the message others miss and get them to hear YOU! Step-by-step exercises teach new behavior and encourage us to try it out in the world!

Rebecca Shafir is chief of speech pathology at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Massachusetts. A twenty-year student of Zen, she leads listening workshops in New England and has coached media personalities and political candidates since 1980.
