I Love Me: A Guide to being Your Own Best Friend, Bev Aisbett
2 I Love Me: A Guide to being Your Own Best Friend
Bev Aisbett Australia Harper Collins 2013 0732289017 / 9780732289010 Soft cover New Book 
From the bestselling author of LIVING WITH IT comes a breakthrough work that is the culmination of years of searching for the 'bottom line' of the malaise which affects not only those who suffer with anxiety and depression but also human beings in general in ever-increasing numbers. This feeling manifests as anything from dissatisfaction to rage, bullying to brutality, self pity to cynicism. It contaminates happiness, sabotages potential and saps joy. The malaise is not discriminating: it equally infects world leaders and ordinary citizens. What is this sickness? It is a lack of joy. It means existing instead of living, finding oneself empty and afraid, angry, blaming or bored senseless. It is marrying the wrong spouse, staying in the job you hate, eating the wrong foods, becoming addicted, being lonely, falling ill, feeling lost. But take heart, there is a cure, which is free, powerful and accessible to all - LOVE YOURSELF.

Blame Changer: Understanding Domestic Violence, Carmel O'Brien
4 Blame Changer: Understanding Domestic Violence
Carmel O'Brien Australia Threekookaburras 2016 0992539463 / 9780992539467 Soft cover New Book 22.9 x 15.2 x 1.0 cm 
Blame Changer by psychologist Carmel O'Brien, former head of Clinical Services at Victoria's Doncare, provides straight forward answers to common questions and aims to debunk pervasive myths around what Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull last year called "one of Australia's greatest shames" domestic violence. But Blame Changer is much more than the definitive rebuttal of some of society's most damaging, ill-informed and pervasive attitudes about domestic violence. It sounds a clarion call for a change in the way we talk - at the dinner table, on social media and in national conversation at the highest levels - about women and the violence they experience. What's more, it's also a practical guide that will help victims of abuse: Blame Changer also shows friends and family how to help a victim of abuse and challenges how the Family Court system responds to allegations of abuse. This is the definitive guide to domestic violence in Australia, by a woman who has worked with countless victims over many years. About the Author: Carmel O’Brien managed the counselling programs and led the development of domestic violence programs at Doncaster Community Care and Counselling Centre (Doncare) in Melbourne’s east from 2001-2015. She established the Dorothy Rose Fund, in memory of her mother, to provide services that meet the individual and practical needs of women and children in recovery from domestic violence. She also founded the SaSSing Choir for victims of DV and their supporters. She is a Fellow of the Australian Pyschological Society and the Cairnmillar Institute. Carmel has seven adult children, and lives in Rosebud, Victoria. This is her first book.

Rewire Your Anxious Brain: How to Use the Neuroscience of Fear to End Anxiety, Panic and Worry, Catherine M. Pittman and Elizabeth M. Karle
5 Rewire Your Anxious Brain: How to Use the Neuroscience of Fear to End Anxiety, Panic and Worry
Catherine M. Pittman and Elizabeth M. Karle USA New Harbinger 2015 1626251134 / 9781626251137 Soft cover New Book 22.8 x 15.4 x 1.3 cm 
Do you ever wonder what is happening inside your brain when you feel anxious, panicked, and worried? In Rewire Your Anxious Brain, psychologist Catherine Pittman and author Elizabeth Karle offer a unique, evidence-based solution to overcoming anxiety based in cutting-edge neuroscience and research.In the book, you will learn how the amygdala and cortex (both important parts of the brain) are essential players in the neuropsychology of anxiety. The amygdala acts as a primal response, and oftentimes, when this part of the brain processes fear, you may not even understand why you are afraid. By comparison, the cortex is the center of "worry."That is obsessing, ruminating, and dwelling on things that may or may not happen. In the book, Pittman and Karle make it simple by offering specific examples of how to manage fear by tapping into both of these pathways in the brain.As you read, you'll gain a greater understanding how anxiety is created in the brain, and as a result, you will feel empowered and motivated to overcome it. The brain is a powerful tool, and the more you work to change the way you respond to fear, the more resilient you will become. Using the practical self-assessments and proven-effective techniques in this book, you will learn to literally "rewire" the brain processes that lie at the root of your fears.

Women Who Run With The Wolves: Contacting the Power of the Wild Woman, Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Clarissa Pinkola Estes UK Rider 2008 1846041090 / 9781846041099 Soft cover New Book B-format 
"Women Who Run With The Wolves isn't just another book. It is a gift of profound insight, wisdom and love. An oracle from one who knows.' Alice Walker In the classic Women Who Run With The Wolves, Clarissa Pinkola Estes tells us about the 'wild woman', the wise and ageless presence in the female psyche that gives women their creativity, energy and power. For centuries, the 'wild woman' has been repressed by a male-orientated value system which trivialises women's emotions. Using a combination of time-honoured stories and contemporary casework, Estes reveals that the 'wild woman' in us is innately healthy, passionate and wise. Thoughtfully written and compelling in its arguments, Women Who Run With The Wolves gives readers a new sense of direction, a self confidence and purpose in their lives." About the Author: "Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D., is an award-winning poet, senior Jungian psychoanalyst, and a cantadora (keeper of the old stories of the Latina tradition). She has been in private practice for twenty-eight years and is former executive director of the C.G. Jung Centre for Research and Education in the United States. Dr Estes founded and directs la Sociedad de Guadalupe, a human rights educational organisation that broadcasts, via audio, throughout the world."

Neuro Slimming @ NeuroSlimming: Let Your Brain Change Your Body, Helena Popovic
9 Neuro Slimming @ NeuroSlimming: Let Your Brain Change Your Body
Helena Popovic Australia Penguin 2017 0143783157 / 9780143783152 Soft cover New Book 22.9 x 15.4 x 4.1 cm 
"It's not what you eat, it's why and how you eat. The world is drowning in information on health, nutrition and exercise yet 95 percent of people who try to lose weight put it all back on, plus more, within 12 months of starting any sort of weight loss regime. Why? Because the key factor in successful weight management has been ignored- the brain. The brain is our control centre. Every part of the body follows the signals and instructions sent out by the brain. It doesn't matter if you have a slow metabolism, a frenetic lifestyle or a genetic predisposition to fat gain, because NeuroSlimming addresses the underlying source of the issue and gives you a Mind Plan, not a meal plan. NeuroSlimming brings the latest discoveries in brain science to the field of weight management. NeuroSlimming provides the missing piece in the weight loss puzzle. NeuroSlimming sets you free of dieting, struggling, worrying, wishing, craving and emotional eating. Free of guilt and anguish about what, when and how much to eat. Free to make peace with your body and live life to the full. Free to enjoy food because you'll learn how to feed your spirit, not starve your body. Dr Helena Popovic's deep understanding of what drives self-sabotaging behaviours will show you how to overcome them. She also explains why you could be doing 'everything right' yet still not achieving the results you want. NeuroSlimming opens avenues for change that were not previously known to exist. NeuroSlimming is revolutionary. It will take you beyond information to lifelong transformation. In 2016 NeuroSlimming won the Bronze Medal in the international Living Now awards. These awards celebrate the innovation and creativity of books that enhance the quality of our lives. The 2016 winners are recognised as the year's best books for better living. NeuroSlimming is honoured for its contribution to positive global change in the health and wellness category." About the Author: "Helena Popovic is a medical doctor and brain specialist with a passion for people and a great sense of humour. Throughout her years in medical practice she lectured students, nurses and fellow doctors. She now delivers keynotes, seminars and workshops to people in all professions and all walks of life.

Why do we keep getting the same jobs, taking on the same relationships, and finding ourselves in the same emotional traps? Dr. Joe Dispenza not only teaches why people tend to repeat the same negative behaviours, he shows how readers can release themselves from these patterns of disappointment. With the dynamic combination of science and accessible how?to, Dispenza teaches how to use the most important tool in ones body and life?the brain. Featured in the underground smash hit of 2004, "What the Bleep Do We Know!?," Dispenza touched upon the brain's ability to become addicted to negative emotions. Now, in his empowering book Evolve Your Brain he explains how new thinking and new beliefs can literally rewire one's brain to change behaviour, emotional reactions, and habit forming patterns. Most people are unaware of how addicted they are to their emotions, and how the brain perpetuates those addictions automatically. In short, we become slaves to our emotional addictions without even realising it. By observing our patterns of thought, and learning how to 're?wire the brain' with new thought patterns, we can break the cycles that keep us trapped and open ourselves to new possibilities for growth, happiness and emotional satisfaction. A radical approach to changing addictive patterns and bad habits. Based on more than twenty years of research. Bridges the gap between science, spirituality and self?help?a formula that has proven success. Easy to understand and written for the average reader.

Dr. Joe Dispenza has created two meditation CDs, featuring different music, to accompany his book You Are the Placebo. On this 56-minute disc, Dr. Joe walks you through Meditation 1: Changing Two Beliefs and Perceptions. After introducing the open-focus technique, he then moves you into the practice of finding the present moment. When you discover the sweet spot of the present moment and you forget about yourself as the personality you have always been, you have access to other possibilities that already exist in the quantum field. That's because you are no longer connected to the same body-mind, to the same identification with the environment, and to the same predictable timeline. In the present moment, the familiar past and the future literally no longer exist, and you become pure consciousness-a thought alone. That is the moment that you can change your body, change your environment, and even create a new timeline for your life! About the Author: Joe Dispenza, D.C., has a passion for teaching others how to use the latest discoveries from neuroscience and quantum physics to reprogram their brains, heal illness, and lead more fulfilled lives. One of the experts featured in the film What the BLEEP Do We Know!?, Dr. Joe teaches workshops and lectures all over the world. He's also designed a corporate program that brings his model of transformation to businesses. He runs an integrated health and chiropractic clinic near Olympia, Washington.

Wrapping Culture: Politeness, Presentation and Power in Japan and Other Societies [used book][hard to get], Joy Hendry
13 Wrapping Culture: Politeness, Presentation and Power in Japan and Other Societies [used book][hard to get]
Joy Hendry UK Oxford University Press 1995 0198280289 / 9780198280286 Soft cover Good Book 23.5 x 15.7 x 1.3 cm 
Wrapping Culture examines problems of intercultural communication and the possibilities for misinterpretation of the familiar in an unfamiliar context. Starting with an examination of Japanese gift-wrapping, Joy Hendry demonstrates how our expectations are often influenced by cultural factors which may blind us to an appreciation of underlying intent. She extends this approach to the study of polite language as the wrapping of thoughts and intentions, garments as body wrappings, constructions and gardens as wrapping of space. Hendry shows how this extends even to the ways in which people may be wrapped in seating arrangements, or meetings and drinking customs may be constrained by temporal versions of wrapping. Throughout the book, Hendry considers ways in which groups of people use such symbolic forms to impress and manipulate one another, and points out a Western tendency to underestimate such nonverbal communication, or reject it as mere decoration. She presents ideas that should be valid in any intercultural encounter and demonstrates that Japanese culture, so often thought of as a special case, can supply a model through which we can formulate general theories about human behavior.

Jesus, Moses, Mohammed, Gandhi, and the Buddha all had brains built essentially like anyone else's, yet they were able to harness their thoughts and shape their patterns of thinking in ways that changed history. With new breakthroughs in modern neuroscience and the wisdom of thousands of years of contemplative practice, it is possible for us to shape our own thoughts in a similar way for greater happiness, love, compassion, and wisdom. Buddha's Brain joins the forces of modern neuroscience with ancient contemplative teachings to show readers how they can work toward greater emotional well-being, healthier relationships, more effective actions, and deepened religious and spiritual understanding. This book will explain how the core elements of both psychological well-being and religious or spiritual life-virtue, mindfulness, and wisdom-are based in the core functions of the brain: regulating, learning, and valuing. Readers will also learn practical ways to apply this information, as the book offers many exercises they can do to tap the unused potential of the brain and rewire it over time for greater peace and well-being.
