Nov 14: 1] Make Peace with Your Mind 2] Start Right Where You Are

We are our own worst critics due to that intruding inner voice that always makes us second-guess ourselves every step of the way… is it not good enough, or maybe too much… might as well give up, right? Now you can defeat that inner critic thanks to bestselling author and renowned meditation teacher Mark Coleman, who offers practical tools to shut that voice up for good in Make Peace with Your Mind: How Mindfulness and Compassion Can Free You from Your Inner Critic.

Nineteen years ago, Sam Bennett was couch-bound and depressed and not in the mood for the famous self-help book her friends gave her to cheer her up. But as she adapted its ideas to her own life over time, she became a believer and her subsequent success in creating her own company inspired her to write Start Right Where You Are: How Little Changes Can Make a Big Difference for Overwhelmed Procrastinators, Frustrated Overachievers, and Recovering Perfectionists.

At times the Inner Critic… that voice that makes us second-guess our every step by saying “not enough,” “not good enough,” or sometimes “too much,”… can be so strong that it feels invincible, but bestselling author and renowned meditation teacher Mark Coleman promises that it is not in Make Peace with Your Mind: How Mindfulness and Compassion Can Free You from Your Inner Critic. Mark is the founder of the Mindfulness Institute and has guided students on five continents as a corporate consultant, counselor, meditation teacher, and wilderness guide.

Author Sam Bennett uses 66 small, easily doable changes you can make to achieve their goals and dreams in Start Right Where You Are: How Little Changes Can Make a Big Difference for Overwhelmed Procrastinators, Frustrated Overachievers, and Recovering Perfectionists. Readers will learn to get over their fear of success, figure out how to pick a great project, and find or build their “tribe” … a community of like-minded people who will support them, celebrate them, and cherish their involvement in their lives. Sam created The Organized Artist Company to help creative people get unstuck and achieve their goals. She is a writer, actor, teacher, and creativity/productivity specialist who has counseled thousands of artists and entrepreneurs on their way to success.

Through millenia, humans have been predators, leaning toward conquests, materialism, exploitation, and self-centeredness. Our tendency is not to trust.

Once upon a time, you might have called it a consciousness-raising group. But the women who participate realize the problems of today’s working world are more subtle, less pronounced, harder to identify…and harder to prove… than those of their foremothers. These women weren’t just there to vent. They needed battle tactics. And so the Feminist Fight Club was born. Every month, the women would huddle in a friend’s apartment to share sexist job frustrations and trade tips for how best to tackle them. Author Jessica Bennett is an award-winning journalist and critic who writes on gender issues, sexuality and culture. She is a feature writer and columnist at the New York Times, and her work work has also appeared in Newsweek, where she began her career as a staff writer, Time, where she was a columnist, and Cosmopolitan, where she helps edit a quarterly section on women and work.

A horse trainer for over 20 years, Dr. Allan Hamilton found that since horses are prey animals, their partnerships are based on trust, while humans, predatory in nature, lack the natural instinct to trust others. In Lead with Your Heart: Lessons from a Life with Horses, he explores topics like mindfulness, stalking happiness, leading and following, and energy and emotion using the horse as teacher. Dr. Hamilton started his working life as a janitor. He would eventually go on to graduate from Harvard Medical School and complete his neurosurgical residency training at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He has authored more than twenty medical textbook chapters, fifty peer-review research articles, and has served on the editorial board of several medical journals.

Oct 10: 1] Take Control of Your Anxiety 2] Outsmarting Overeating

There’s nothing funny about anxiety, but licensed psychologists Dr. Chris Cortman and Dr. Harold Shinitzky use humor in their approach to helping others. In their new book is Take Control of Your Anxiety: A Drug-Free Approach to Living a Happy, Healthy Life, they combine brain science, case studies, exercises and a little levity to deliver an easy read for anyone suffering from anxiety.

Food is not the culprit leading to overeating according to psychotherapist and eating coach Karen R. Koenig. In Outsmarting Overeating, she illustrates how boosting essential life skills such as physical self-care, problem solving, and handling emotions can propel you toward beating overeating rather than relying on sheer willpower.
