Good posture is about more than standing up straight: It can change your mood, alleviate pain, rid your body of stressful tension, and may be the difference between getting that raise you've wanted and attracting your ideal mate, or not. But in order to reap all those benefits, the body must be properly integrated. Celebrity movement coach and manual therapist Aaron Alexander offers a revolutionary approach to body alignment to build strength, reduce pain, and put you on a direct path to peak performance that is both fun and accessible. The Align Method centers on five daily optimizations that can be easily integrated into any workout, mindfulness practice, or daily life activity: Floor Sitting Hanging Hip-Hinging Walking Nose Breathing A truly aligned life isn't limited to sweating in a gym or stretching in a yoga studio, and Alexander provides the fundamental principles to optimize your physical and mental process in any situation. Blending Eastern philosophy with Western mechanics, The Align Method brilliantly outlines the necessary tools to leverage the power of your own senses and body language to feel more flexible and confident, and details exactly how to reshape your environment for enhanced creativity and longevity. This is the quintessential user's manual to feeling better than you ever thought possible, and looking great while you're at it!

Walking the Spirit explores a unique and compelling topic-the cultural and spiritual dimensions of walking. Drawing on a wide variety of historical, cultural, and religious perspectives, Dr. Rotholz probes the intriguing and deeply profound meaning to be found behind a universe in motion. Written in layman's terms from a first-person perspective, Walking the Spirit draws upon many of the author's experiences as an anthropologist, avid outdoorsman, and international Christian aid worker to countries in Africa, Asia, and Central America. Among the topics explored is the idea that the neighborhood walk represents an apt metaphor for our journey through life, an idea the author develops into a novel and far-reaching perspective on human society, the world of nature, and the biblical account from Genesis to Revelation. Whether on a casual stroll through suburbia, a distant pilgrimage to Mecca, or crossing the very threshold of death, Walking the Spirit allows the reader to positively identify and better understanding the one common denominator that makes each daily activity meaningful and coherent in the larger scope of things. spirituality, the world of nature, and the grand themes of human existence.

In this informative new book, Ravi Kalia continues his examination of the planning of Indian cities begun with his earlier study of Chandigarh. Here, Kalia makes systematic inquiries into the political circumstances that brought about modern Bhubaneswar, the capital of the state of Orissa, to reveal the historical and social circumstances that shaped the city. In this account, Kalia brilliantly shows the interplay of indigenous religious forces, regional loyalty, and Western secular ideas in the context of twentieth-century international architecture and planning movements. This book will prove invaluable to historians, architects, planners, sociologists, and scholars interested in India, as well as those interested in urban planning in developing countries.

Why Are We Facing Never Ending Terrorism? Political violence and terrorism have been, literally, bleeding humanity throughout the world. This book sheds light on terrorism, highlighting the causes of this evil, including religion, wealth disparity, poverty, dysfunctional government, and the crippling lending policies of international financial institutions. In particular, it highlights one major gray area not discussed by conventional writers - theColonial Legacy. This book highlights every aspect of political development from the birth of new nations to the race for supremacy. The impact of scarce mineral resources, the role of religions, the Shia-Sunni turmoil in the Middle East, and last but not least, the militarization processes are all discussed. Greed allows terrorism to take root and to be nurtured. It leads the religious to be abused and innocent people to be victimized by war's profiteers.

The more teachers understand about how children learn to talk, the more they can help children become avid, joyful readers and writers. Drawing on a large body of research and her own volunteer work at a family shelter, Lindfors concisely identifies several important commonalities across oral and written language. Taking the compelling perspective that it’s all language, she traces children’s emergent literacy from infancy through the early school years. The book incorporates abundant examples from a diverse range of children engaged in authentic literacy experiences. Lindfors describes a set of principles that teachers can build on as they help young students learn to read and write using the oral language processes they already know. “A valuable resource for teacher educators.” —Gail Perry, New Books Editor, Young Children “Children’s Language offers a return to sanity in children’s early literacy development—an appeal for ‘joy in a literate community’ with logic and evidence to support it.” —Peter Johnston, the University at Albany–SUNY “Once again, with her unique insights, Judith Lindfors describes and updates children’s oral and written language development to inform those of us who work with young children.” —Yetta M. Goodman, Regents Professor Emerita, University of Arizona, College of Education “Children’s Language gives us a front row seat at a spectacular show. This book should appeal to anyone who has ever been intrigued by young children’s language learning.” —Carole Edelsky, Arizona State University
