Here is a comprehensive and practical guide to using the Five Element model in your daily life in ways that can improve your physical health, foster mental ease and clarity, create more emotional balance, and bring you closer to spirit. Having introduced the philosophical and practical principles of the Five Elements, the author invites you to 'live the book', immersing yourself in the many aspects of each Element during its corresponding season. He offers a range of methods of doing this, including activities such as movement, cooking, gardening, journaling, visualisation, meditation, dialogue and self-acupressure. In working with each Element, he explores the three levels or expressions of human life - the physical (structures, organs, tissues and systems), the psycho-emotional (thoughts, beliefs, self-images, emotions and reactions), and the spirit. Detailed information is provided on each Element's specific attributes, associations, resonances and gifts, and anatomical illustrations are included for further guidance. An invaluable reference book for practitioners and students of Chinese Medicine who hope to become better practitioners to others, the book also provides the means to become a practitioner to yourself.

In the autumn, Molkho's wife dies. His years of loving care have ended and his newfound freedom proves unlike the one he had imagined. It is an uneasy freedom, filled with the erotic fantasies of a man who must fall in love, but whose longing for meaningful relationships is held hostage by the spirit of his wife. Five Seasons is a subtle and often comic novel about love and renewal, and the determination of a seasoned heart to love.

A chronicle of our national pastime’s most unforgettable era from the bestselling author of The Summer Game—“No one writes better about baseball” (The Boston Globe). Classic New Yorker sportswriter Roger Angell calls 1972 to 1976 “the most important half-decade in the history of the game.” The early to mid-1970s brought unprecedented changes to America’s ancient pastime: astounding performances by Nolan Ryan and Hank Aaron; the intensity of the “best-ever” 1975 World Series between the Cincinnati Reds and the Boston Red Sox; the changes growing from bitter and extended labor strikes and lockouts; and the vast new influence of network television on the game. Angell, always a fan as well as a writer, casts a knowing but noncynical eye on these events, offering a fresh perspective to baseball’s continuing appeal during this brilliant and transformative era.
What you'll notice throughout my book is that, often, the same objects get used in different rooms, and in different seasons. This repetition isn't staged; I really do live this way. I use my treasures, rather than treasuring them.

In many ways, he was more real. I also found it odd that, while it wasn't until several seasons into Buffy that a major “good” character was killed off, Angel started out with that very scenario. Was it an attempt to add more of an edge ...

He said, “Most men will treat you the way you let them, but I'm a man of God. I treat women the way I'm supposed to, which is with respect. I'm trying to give you what you need, instead of reacting to what your pain is projecting.

My early experiences of preserving memories and stories in jars were the inspiration for my career in food, leading me by way of several restaurant kitchens to the other side of the world and all the way back to jam.

In Facing the Fires, Bernard Horn introduces A. B. Yehoshua, Israel’s greatest living novelist, to an English-speaking audience. Yehoshua is also his country’s most audacious thinker about politics, culture, history, and Jewish identity. Yehoshua’s achievement has been recognized throughout the world, and he has been awarded literary prizes in both Israel and the United States. A lively, controversial, and prophetic voice in his homeland, Yehoshua rigorously tests his community’s deepest pieties: religion, Zionism, and the agony of the Holocaust. A Jew who does not believe in God, he is a committed Zionist and member of the “peace camp” in Israel that welcomed the Palestinian uprising of 1987. In the tradition of the Paris Review interviews, Horn’s conversations with Yehoshua reveal the intricate play of literary, psychological, mythological, and political motifs in the novelist’s work. Stimulated by a warm friendship between the two scholars, the intellectual energy of Facing the Fires offers readers a pleasure they might expect only from fiction.
No two books are so opposed to each other, by the characters, by the way they are structured. Five Seasons is a narrative, slow, present, ironic, without any of those dialogues, prologues, and epilogues, not historical, very limited in ...

In this book, Sephardism is defined not as an expression of Sephardic identity but as a politicized literary metaphor. Since the nineteenth century, this metaphor has occurred with extraordinary frequency in works by authors from a variety of ethnicities, religions, and nationalities in Europe, the Americas, North Africa, Israel, and even India. Sephardism asks why Gentile and Jewish writers and cultural figures have chosen to draw upon the medieval Sephardic experience to express their concerns about dissidents and minorities in modern nations? To what extent does their use of Sephardism overlap with other politicized discourses such as orientalism, hispanism, and medievalism, which also emerged from a clash between authoritarian, progressive, and romantic ideologies? This book brings a new approach to Sephardic Studies by situating it at a crossroads between Jewish Studies and Hispanic Studies in ways that enhance our appreciation of how historical fiction and political history have shaped, and were shaped by, historical attitudes toward Jews and their representation.
