Book Description :

Taking a major textile artwork, The Knitting Map, as a central case study, this book interrogates the social, philosophical and critical issues surrounding contemporary textile art today. It explores gestures of community and controversy manifest in contemporary textile art practices, as both process and object. Created by more than 2,000 knitters from 22 different countries, who were mostly working-class women, The Knitting Map became the subject of national controversy in Ireland. Exploring the creation of this multi-modal artwork as a key moment in Irish art history, Textiles, Community and Controversy locates the work within a context of feminist arts practice, including the work of Judy Chicago, Faith Ringold and the Guerilla Girls. Bringing together leading art critics and textile scholars, including Lucy Lippard, Jessica Hemmings and Joanne Turney, the collection explores key issues in textile practice from gender, class and nation to technology and performance.

Book Description :

Poems of migration, womanhood, trauma, and resilience from the celebrated collaborator on Beyoncé's Lemonade and Black Is King, award-winning Somali British poet Warsan Shire. Mama, I made it out of your home, alive, raised by the voices in my head. With her first full-length poetry collection, Warsan Shire introduces us to a young girl, who, in the absence of a nurturing guide, makes her own stumbling way towards womanhood. Drawing from her own life and the lives of loved ones, as well as pop culture and news headlines, Shire finds vivid, unique details in the experiences of refugees and immigrants, mothers and daughters, Black women, and teenage girls. In Shire's hands, lives spring into fullness. This is noisy life: full of music and weeping and surahs and sirens and birds. This is fragrant life: full of blood and perfume and shisha smoke and jasmine and incense. This is polychrome life: full of henna and moonlight and lipstick and turmeric and kohl. The long-awaited collection from one of our most exciting contemporary poets, this book is a blessing, an incantatory celebration of resilience and survival. Each reader will come away changed.

Book Description :

Gurdjieff was wrong but his teaching works...is the story of one man's remarkable journey of self-discovery which dispels the Gurdjieffian premise that man is not born with an immortal soul. With his own quest, Orest Stocco illustrates that we are all born with a spark of divine consciousness; but not until we take evolution into our own hands, which Gurdjieff's teaching helped him to do, will we realize our true self.

This Title Is A Vast Collection And Compiliation Of 97 Important Legends Relating To Nature And Character Of Women In Buddhist Canonical And Non-Canonical Literature Which Produced A Marvellous Impact On Ethical Values Of Women Of All Classes, Who Were Moved By The Attractive Spiritual Power Of The Buddha'S Dhamma And Renounced The World To Lead A Pious Life In The Expectation Of A Happy Rebirth Or In Order To Amiability Of Rebirth Altogether. There Were A Number Of Courtesans Who Led Saintly Lives After Listening To Buddha. Ladies Of The Sakya Family Were Naturally The Earliest Women To Come Under The Influence Of The New Creed. The Women Appear To Have Enjoyed A Greater Amount Of Independence And Free Thinking Among The Sakyas Than Among The Peoples Of The Plains Perhaps Owing To The Same Scarcity Of Women That Forced Them To Enact A Law Prohibiting Multiple Marriages. The Therigatha And Its Commentary Tell Us In What Light The Monastic Life Presented Itself To Women In The Days Of Gautama Buddha.

Book Description :

This book is a collection of stories that describes the relationships that can exist when we put Jesus Christ first in our lives; and how agape love as described in First Corinthians Chapter Thirteen can shape our values and guide us in making difficult decisions as we interact with others. For all of us, this is a growing process and we must ask God daily for the wisdom, strength and courage to press on for the abundant life that only He can give I truly believe that the teachings and commandments in the Holy Bible can transform our lives if we apply them in our daily living. After reviewing the first drafts of this book, I signed on wholeheartedly to be a part of this exciting adventure. To assist my brother as his editor has been a blessing and a labor of love. This book gives outstanding examples of how faith as the root can lead to love as the fruit. The story titled Alpha and Omega in Chapter Thirteen sums it up. Jesus Christ is indeed The Beginning and The End, The First and The Last in the lives of those who love Him.

Book Description :

This book focuses on the rapidly changing sociology of music as manifested in Chinese society and Chinese education. It examines how social changes and cultural politics affect how music is currently being used in connection with the Chinese dream. While there is a growing trend toward incorporating the Chinese dream into school education and higher education, there has been no scholarly discussion to date. The combination of cultural politics, transformed authority relations, and officially approved songs can provide us with an understanding of the official content on the Chinese dream that is conveyed in today’s Chinese society, and how these factors have influenced the renewal of values-based education and practices in school music education in China.

Book Description :

Giving Birth to God tells of one woman's journey through yoga ashrams and Sufi training to finding a mystical Christian school with Master Teachers. After 12 years of transformational training, Mother Clare was ordained a Priest, and four years later a Master Teacher. Mother Clare was married, raised four children, and was a practicing midwife and psychotherapist while receiving her mystical and esoteric training. Without being celibate, without going to India and joining a foreign religion, Mother Clare received complete spiritual training, including initiations and ordinations, in the midst of leading the full life of an American woman. Wonderfully moving stories give an in-depth rendering of the Inner Christian Path. Some accounts will induce laughter and some tears, while the stories of women giving birth and the transformations the author experienced as a midwife and mother will move hearts and open minds to the great reality of the spiritual world.

A tent was set up and a triangular table was placed in the middle of the tent. There were one hen and one cock on the table with a big bowl of rice and the smell of burning incense. The bride and the groom in traditional wear stood opposite each other, but the table was placed between them. The usher of the ceremony told the bride to bow to the groom, and in return the groom had to bow in courtesy to the bride. The rite of bowing one after the other would be the peak of the ceremony, and then the reception would be held. Mother and Father became husband and wife right after the wedding ceremony. Then their future was up to them.

Book Description :

   To honor the 40th anniversary of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, journalist Perdita Huston travelled the world to gather this remarkable collection of oral histories of and about the often unknown leaders of a worldwide movement to bring women their reproductive rights. Drawing on personal interviews, Huston delineates the motivations, strategies, and heartaches of twelve pioneers-eight women, four men-both from the developing world, before and after colonial rule, and from industrialized countries, who braved scorn and abuse to raise the issues of family planning, contraception, and sex education, and to fight for improved healthcare for women. These moving testimonies reflect the personal leadership style of each pioneer from Dr. Evangelina Rodriquez, the first woman doctor in the Dominican Republic, who defied church policies and the corrupt dictator Trujillo to promote family planning and fight the spread of venereak disease; to Miyoski Ohba who contended with innumerable taboos in postwar Japan to introduce poor villagers to the use of condoms; to Elsie Ottsen-Jensen, born in 1886 to a poor Norwegian family of 17 children, who became acutely aware of the high rate of maternal mortality throughout turn-of-the-century Scandinavia and went on to found the Swedish Association of Sex Educators in 1933. Motherhood by Choice stands as a significant historical document tracing the development of public health services, sex education, and contraceptive services that will inspire and inform all who are concerned about women's health and reproductive rights.

“Brown offers a powerful look into the world of hearing loss... a notable and groundbreaking debut by an author to watch. An empowering and satisfying romance.” -- Kirkus Reviews Do you know what hearing loss sounds like? I do. All my life I’ve tried to be like you. I’ve failed. So I keep it hidden. But on the day my world crashed down around me, Reed was there. He showed me just how loud and vibrant silence can be, even when I struggled to understand. He’s unlike anyone I’ve ever known. His soulful eyes and strong hands pulled me in before I knew what was happening. And as I saw those hands sign, felt them sparking on me, I knew: imperfect could be perfect. Reed makes me feel things I’ve never felt. It’s exciting . . . and terrifying. Because he sees me like no one else has, and I’m afraid of what he’ll find if he looks too closely. The only thing that scares me more than being with him? Letting him go. An Avon Romance
