Summary

Bestselling author Howard Fast’s straightforward introduction to Zen meditationHoward Fast began to formally practice Zen meditation after turning away from communism in 1956. The Art of Zen Meditation, originally published by the antiwar political collective Peace Press in 1977, is the fruit of Fast’s study: a brief and instructive history of Zen Buddhism and its tenets, written with a simplicity that is emblematic of the philosophy itself. Fast’s study of Zen also inspired his popular Masao Masuto mystery series about a Zen Buddhist detective in Beverly Hills, which he published under the pseudonym E. V. Cunningham. The Art of Zen Meditation is illustrated with twenty-three beautiful photographs. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.

    Where Angels Walked is the story of Jenny Goolsby, a beautiful baby girl born with hemangioma.  Through her parents faith, the support and prayers of a loving family, husband, and community, and the strength of her spirit, Jenny overcomes physical limitations to achieve personal and business successes.  Most importantly, she reaches out to everyone with love, even in the midst of her own strife.  Although despair could have been Jennys story, she chose to pen her life with faithfaith bright and beautiful.A unique challenge for its author, Where Angels Walked chronicles the extraordinary defeats and triumphs of Jennys life, offering assurance and courage to those who have suffered with and lost a loved one.  Jenny demonstrates with her life that it is through weakness that Gods strength can shine through.In riveting detail, Ms. Verble writes eloquently her memories of Jenny: girlhood pretending and playing; moments of utter despair and hopelessness; and Jennys persistence to live life fully time and time again. She describes how they helped each other in life; their marriages and the children they shared; the family dinners and gatherings; and the constant stream of the love that flowed between these special, angelic sisters.Tragically, Jennys life is shortened following a diagnosis of colon cancer.  Not only does the family lose their beloved sister; they lose Dewey, Jennys devoted and loving husband.  To add to this heartache, all of Jennys possessions are lost, never to be cherished by her family.The combination of losing Jenny and what she created and worked for brought much sadness and grief to Georgia.  The author began writing to explain her heartaches and her personal journey from taking full responsibility for her sisters death to final complete acceptance of it.  After 10 years of writing, Where Angels Walked has been published.This emotionally compelling personal story raises many spiritual questions about life, illness, death, and finding peace in the midst of personal nightmares.  The pages are filled with detailed memories and the story contains laughter and surprise, suspense and drama, sorrow and pain; but most significant, the assurance of Gods steadfastness to his beloved children.  Ms. Verble gives freely of her memories, ideas, and feelings.Follow Jenny and Georgias journey from despair to joy, back to despair, and finally to joyful acceptance of Gods plan.  Where Angels Walked is difficult to put down and impossible to forget.

This clear and engaging book introduces ways of thinking about the issues your child finds difficult, and includes 32 stories created by Dr Siobhan Timmins for her son during his early years, with helpful explanations of how she did it, and what the underlying thinking was behind each set of stories.
    
    She explains how the stories build upon each other to help the child to understand further, more complex topics, and how to see the connections so that you can best help your child. From basic skills such as learning to listen, wait and share, to common fears, this book takes the mystery out of creating effective Social Stories™ and amply demonstrates how to put together a cohesive set of stories which your child can understand and relate to.
