They provide all the nuts and bolts for creating and managing successful book clubs, including: Dozens of "pitfalls and pathways" minilessons that address common roadblocks Tips for using technology to enhance book club work for deeper student engagement Suggested "book bins" for book club work, organized by grade level and genre.

A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook of Strength, Grace, and Healing
A Life Worth Breathing: A Yoga Master's Handbook
We can do more with this life. We all know it, we all wish for it, but just how to do it--that eludes us. In his new book, A Life Worth Breathing, internationally renowned spiritual philosopher and teacher Max Strom shows us the way. His groundbreaking book reaches past dogma in a language that is vital, inspired, and accessible. Strom leads us on a journey of self-discovery as we excavate our past in order to have a better understanding of our present. According to Max Strom, "We live in fear of terrorism but in actuality the most devastating terrorism comes from within us as we sabotage ourselves." With practical techniques, A Life Worth Breathing offers us a path to transformation with visionary insights on forgiveness, gratitude and self-empowerment. The teachings are rooted in Yoga, Sufism and Eastern philosophy, but make no mistake, this is not a yoga book of postures, it is a guidebook for living. A Life Worth Breathing teaches us that by healing our past emotional wounds, silencing the inner critic that cripples us, and cultivating a yoga and breathing practice, we can elevate ourselves from the mindset of a reactionary victim to an authentic life of meaning, health, and joy. A life worth living, a life worth breathing.

Life With Breath: Iq + Eq = New You
Life With Breath: Iq + Eq = New
Life With Breath is a journey in discovering the mind-body relationship that is linked through breath and how this serves as a basis for reducing stress, improving health and well-being, building resilience, improving performance AND transforming negative habitual patterns of behavior. Specifically, yoga breathing. Traditionally called, Pranayama. Breathing rates and patterns are influencing our biochemistry, biomechanics, physiology & psychology. In the yoga tradition, breath regulation (or pranayama) is the tool by which we “yoke” or unite the body with the mind. This unity between the body and mind create a state of coherence whereby thoughts and emotions are balanced. When in a coherent state, the body is in a place of homeostasis. With some basic knowledge of our body and mind’s hardware and software, we can begin to retain the body and mind back to its’ natural state. As Dr. Andrew Weil says, “Improper breathing is a common cause of ill health." Dysfunctional breathing patters and rates have become problematic for both child and adults and can be linked to many chronic illness and stress-related illnesses. A Life With Breath provides the reader with an explanation on why's and how's yoga breathing is so essential to our health and well-being. Armed with new sci...

I had to come to believe in a reality and dismiss all my illusions.

Zombie Church: Breathing Life Back into the Body of Christ
Zombie Church: Breathing Life Back into the Body
There is something missing in the church today. Stuck in a rut of routines and rituals, the church is caught up in doing what it is “supposed to do” but is lacking the true essence of what it is supposed to provide: life. Real faith--and a real relationship with Jesus--is not about playing by the rules, attending services, and praying before meals. Real faith is more than religion. Believing there is a way to breathe life back into the church, Tyler Edwards adopts a contemporary and entertaining metaphor--zombies--to highlight and challenge the problematic attitude of today’s believers.

Breathing Room: Open Your Heart by Decluttering Your
Cleaning out your cupboards isn’t just about a tidier kitchen. Find peace, repair your past, and live a more fulfilled life with this uplifting guide to the spiritual practice of decluttering.Bless your clutter. Yes, you heard right: Bless it. Bless everything in your life that is superfluous, broken, burdensome, and overwhelming—because it is all here to teach you an important lesson, perhaps the most important lesson there is: what really matters. Everyone’s lives could use some serious decluttering. But decluttering isn’t just about sorting junk into piles and tossing things in the trash. Decluttering can inform us of our burdens, help us to understand our attachments, and aid us in identifying what is truly valuable in our lives. Written by a medical doctor and a spiritual intuitive, with case studies of people just like you, Breathing Room takes you on an enlightening room-by-room tour where each room in your home corresponds to a “room” in your heart, and where decluttering will not just make space but improve the spirit. So, if it’s weighing you down, if it’s become an obstacle, if it’s making it near impossible for you to find the things you really love—it’s time for you to let it go and find a little breathing room.

Breathing Race into the Machine: The Surprising Career of the Spirometer from Plantation to Genetics
Breathing Race into the Machine: The Surprising Career
In the antebellum South, plantation physicians used a new medical device—the spirometer—to show that lung volume and therefore vital capacity were supposedly less in black slaves than in white citizens. At the end of the Civil War, a large study of racial difference employing the spirometer appeared to confirm the finding, which was then applied to argue that slaves were unfit for freedom. What is astonishing is that this example of racial thinking is anything but a historical relic.In Breathing Race into the Machine, science studies scholar Lundy Braun traces the little-known history of the spirometer to reveal the social and scientific processes by which medical instruments have worked to naturalize racial and ethnic differences, from Victorian Britain to today. Routinely a factor in clinical diagnoses, preemployment physicals, and disability estimates, spirometers are often “race corrected,” typically reducing normal values for African Americans by 15 percent.An unsettling account of the pernicious effects of racial thinking that divides people along genetic lines, Breathing Race into the Machine helps us understand how race enters into science and shapes medical research and practice.

O2: Breathing New Life into Faith (ConversantLife.com®)
O2: Breathing New Life into Faith
“I see more passion for trees in the Sierra Club than I do for Jesus in the church.” How can Christians revive and sustain their spiritual vitality? International Bible teacher Richard Dahlstrom offers an answer as practical and life–sustaining as oxygen. People can’t hold their breath forever or continually blow air out, yet many Christians focus either on the inner life or on external service. As a result, their faith eventually becomes lifeless and irrelevant. Dahlstrom invites readers to “inhale” life as they embrace fresh perspectives on prayer, the word, solitude, and the creation. “Exhaling” continues the cycle of breathing through hospitality, generosity, service, and obedience to Christ’s kingdom vision. This thoughtful and inspiring description of a healthy life of faith leads to a balanced and holistic spirituality that mirrors Jesus’ life and teaching.

Expand-A-Lung Breathing Fitness Exerciser
Expand-A-Lung Breathing Fitness
The flow of air in and out of the alveoli is called ventilation and has two stages: inspiration (or inhalation) and expiration (or exhalation). To accomplish this, the whole thorax moves and changes size, due to the action of two sets of muscles: the intercostal muscles and the diaphragm. These are the muscles that are strengthened by using the Expand-A-Lung Breathing Resistance Exerciser. In essence, you inhale more oxygen, and you exhale more carbon dioxide. The result is a substantial improvement in shortness of breath and endurance through better breathing. All is done naturally, with the help of the Expand-A-Lung Breathing Resistance Exerciser. 5 year unlimited warranty for parts and labor.

Vastu: Breathing Life into Space
Vastu: Breathing Life into
Robert Svoboda addresses V stu, the classical Indian art (or science) of architectural form, in a wholly unique way. Instead of presenting lists of rules and architectural injunctions to which builders and interior designers must scrupulously adhere at all times, he sensitizes the reader to the dynamics of space, alignment, and form in ever-expanding orbits of individual life. In the process of guiding the reader through a series of meditations on the dynamics of space and alignment, Dr. Svoboda enters the realms of classical Indian medicine ( yurveda) and astrology (Jyoti a), which, it turns out, are of the greatest importance to realizing V stu and its contours in one s life. Dr. Svoboda allows readers and home builders to understand the complex dynamics of individual, terrestrial, and celestial energetic systems. This leads to a greater awareness of the nature of space and its application to house construction, interior spaces, gardens, one s relationship with the land, and, consequently, one s relationship with oneself.

Blessed Is the Man: A Legacy of Faith and Family Values
Blessed Is the Man: A Legacy of Faith
In Blessed Is the Man: A Legacy of Faith and Family Values, Donald Darnell Harper shares the spiritual values passed on to him by his parents. Their example, to him and his twelve siblings, grounded him in his faith and propelled him to professional success as a vice president with a Fortune 100 company. Harper grew up in the segregated South on the cusp of the Civil Rights movement. In the midst of those often trying times, his parents’ simple formula for life — faith, humility, wisdom and love — taught Harper everything he needed to know about becoming a Christ-follower and a respecter of all men. “The lessons learned while living and working together on the farm have stayed with me and continue to impact the way I live my life,” he writes. Blessed Is the Man is more than just a collection of stories about an African-American family in rural Alabama, but also includes “testimonies to the goodness and provision of the Almighty God,” Harper writes. “The love and grace He showed us is the same that He shows all His children.”
