    This innovative book makes the benefits of Tai Chi directly available to Westerners by communicating its essence in poetic, evocative, and humorous images that apply not only to movement practices of all kinds but to daily life. The book does not assume any knowledge of Tai Chi forms.
    
    The images in this book - drawn from a wide variety of sources, both Chinese and Western, ancient and modern - are easy to understand, fun to work with, and embody the true inner spirit of Tai Chi's timeless tradition. The book contains hundreds of photos and line drawings illustrating the images, detailed explanations of the biomechanical realities that underlie the images, and a summary of the latest scientific research on the benefits of Tai Chi.

    He’s not who he says he is…but neither is she… 
    Wealthy, privileged, the product of too much money and too little responsibility, Ash Lancaster routinely pretends he’s someone else so he’ll be valued for more than his bank accounts. 
    Talented, beautiful, tormented by a past choice she deeply regrets, jewelry designer Arianna Sorensen guards her heart and her privacy from the outside world. 
    When Arianna and Ash meet, the passion is real, though the rest may not be. She thinks he’s a motorcycle-riding photojournalist with nothing but a camera and two saddlebags to his name. He thinks she’s a blue-blooded, orphaned sophisticate with a fat trust fund. 
    However, lies have a way of catching up and causing their own damage. Fate forces Ash to perform the first selfless act of his life to protect Arianna from being blackmailed about her past. The price? He must walk away and forget about her. Two years later, the threat is gone and Ash returns, determined to win back the woman he’s never forgotten and even more determined to get her to admit what she’s been hiding. He reveals his true identity and pledges a future built on trust and honesty. But Ash expects the truth from her, too. Can Arianna open up to him when the last thirteen years have been built on a lie? And if she doesn’t, will she risk losing him again—this time for good?

    This anxiety workbook is designed to help you to rid yourself of ongoing anxiety. Anxiety is a very real condition and some schools of thought define it as a "future oriented" condition in which a person is in a state of constant worry about some event which may or may not occur at some point in the future. Anxiety is thought to be the body's way of prompting the self to deal with stressful situations and when it is not chronic, is thought of as a normal state to be in to help the body to cope with stressful situations. The problem comes however, when one is in a constant state of anxiety. This workbook, through a series of highly effective exercises, helps you to get on top of anxiety related problems and get back to a normal life. Symptoms Anxiety can manifest itself in a number of very real and often frightening physical and emotional symptoms. Symptoms of anxiety can include any combination of the following: Palpitations Panic attacks Hyperventilation Tension and muscle weakness Headache Tiredness Fatigue Shortness of breath Chest pain Nausea Stomach ache Types Anxiety can manifest itself in several ways including social anxiety, phobia, obsessive compulsive behaviour/disorder and post traumatic stress disorder. The problem with living in a constant state of anxiety is that it can lead to even more serious physical problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease. This is because the state of anxiety means that the body is under the impression that there is a perceived threat. As a result, the body raises the blood pressure, increases the heart rate and increases the flow of blood to major muscle groups to help the body to deal with an impending situation which does not exist in reality. Social Anxiety Social anxiety can be thought of as a fear of being in social situations. To those who do not suffer from it, it is an irrational fear, but to those who experience it, it is very real and the implications can be devastating and disabling. Some people feel like they can not leave the house for fear of being scrutinised in social situations. If this is you, the shyness and social anxiety workbook can help you to get past it. Phobia Phobia occurs when you feel so anxious about an object or particular situation that you avoid coming into contact with it at all costs. Sometimes the fear can be so great that it can lead to intense feelings of fear, sweating, palpitations and hyperventilation. Some sufferers have been known to become so distressed that they faint. One can have phobias of anything from spiders to heights. If this sounds at all familiar, the phobia anxiety workbook can help you to get past your fears. Panic Attacks Panic attacks can be thought of as periods of very intense fear and anxiety which occur suddenly and often with no warning. They symptoms may include any combination of the following Palpitations Shortness of breath A feeling of suffocation Trembling Shaking Sweating Nausea Stomach pain Feeling light headed Feeling dizzy Shortness of breath Fear of impending death Hot flashes Chills feeling numb or tingling sensation Panic attacks can last for anything from 10 minutes to several hours and it is said that the experience can be the most frightening experience in a persons life. The first one can take a few days to recover from. If this sounds at all like you, the panic and anxiety workbook can help you to get past your panic attacks quickly and easily. Anxiety Workbook This "anxiety workbook" comes complete with 10 truly powerful steps to help you to cure your anxiety very quickly. If any of the symptoms described here appear at all familiar to you or a loved one, the anxiety workbook could help change your life.

    Bestselling author Larry Crabb cuts to the heart of the biblical view of marriage: the "one-flesh" relationship. He argues convincingly that the deepest needs of human personality—security and significance—ultimately cannot be satisfied by a marriage partner. We need to turn to the Lord, rather than our spouse, to satisfy our needs. This frees both partners for "soul oneness," a commitment to minister to our spouse's needs rather than manipulating them to meet our own needs. With "soul oneness" comes renewed "body oneness," where couples enjoy sexual pleasure as an expression and outgrowth of a personal relationship. The Marriage Builder also identifies three building blocks essential to constructing marriage: the grace of God, true marriage commitment, and acceptance of one's mate. Discussion questions are included to aid couples who want to dig into it and apply the principles to their own lives and marriages. The Marriage Builder is for anyone who longs to transform marriage from trial to triumph.
