RAVENNA - Living in Balance: A Mindful Guide for Thriving in a Complex World by Joel and Michelle Levey

Oct 25 2014 7:00 pm

 

 

As our world grows increasingly more complex and stressful, developing
our capacity for dynamic balance in our lives, work, and relationships
becomes more and more vital. Based on the ancient wisdom traditions and
the insights of indigenous cultures throughout our world, Living in
Balance shows that, in each moment, we have the capacity to be mindful
of whether our thoughts and actions are moving toward harmony and
balance or away from it. Through this awareness we can make a conscious
choice to continue on the path we are on or to change our attitude and
direction. Living in Balance offers a rare synthesis of ancient wisdom
traditions with cutting-edge research on peak human performance that
points toward mindfulness as being truly the key to living in balance.

Joel & Michelle Levey are internationally recognized speakers, authors, educators, and consultants. Founders of WisdomAtWork.com, the enduring benefits of their pioneering work in mind fitness, change
resilience, collective intelligence and innovation have inspired leaders
in hundreds of organizations around the globe including: Google, NASA,
Intel, Hewlett Packard, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Microsoft, World
Bank, Washington Athletic Club, NOAA, MIT, SportsMind, SRI
International, Forest Ethics, EarthSave, U.S. Surgeon General’s Office,
U.S. Special Forces, The Art Monastery Project, and The Clinton Global
Initiative.

"You [Joel and Michelle Levey]
are presently engaged in work that has great prospects for bringing the
inner sciences of human development and transformation to a very wide
section of people who may not under ordinary circumstances come into
contact with these teachings."
- The Dalai Lama

“This
book, like its luminous authors, brings refreshment to mind and heart.
It invites us to open to our own inner wisdom, and brings us tools,
visions, and whispered counsel that restore the blessed balance we each
deserve.”
— Joanna Macy

“Rarely do we
find a book that satisfies both practical and inspirational needs
— Living in Balance does! This is a compelling and excellent resource
for restoring balance within one’s nature and life.”
— Roshi Joan Halifax

John Marzluff - Welcome to Subirdia: Sharing Our Neighborhoods with Wrens, Robins, Woodpeckers, and Other Wildlife

Oct 29 2014 7:00 pm
Oct 29 2014 8:00 pm

Welcome to Subirdia presents a surprising discovery: the suburbs of
many large cities support incredible biological diversity. Populations
and communities of a great variety of birds, as well as other creatures,
are adapting to the conditions of our increasingly developed world. In
this fascinating and optimistic book, John Marzluff reveals how our own
actions affect the birds and animals that live in our cities and towns,
and he provides ten specific strategies everyone can use to make human
environments friendlier for our natural neighbors.

Over many years
of research and fieldwork, Marzluff and student assistants have closely
followed the lives of thousands of tagged birds seeking food, mates, and
shelter in cities and surrounding areas. From tiny Pacific wrens to
grand pileated woodpeckers, diverse species now compatibly share human
surroundings. By practicing careful stewardship with the biological
riches in our cities and towns, Marzluff explains, we can foster a new
relationship between humans and other living creatures--one that honors
and enhances our mutual destiny.
