Deepak Chopra has discovered the delights, and frustrations, of golf, and he is passionate about the game. Confronted by the wild ups and downs of his own play, he consulted with golf professionals and developed a new approach to the game that any golfer, from the novice to the expert, can follow. The results can be measured not only in increased enjoyment and skill, but also in greater wisdom about life beyond the 18th hole. Chopra's own game has improved dramatically since incorporating the elements of his program. Instead of focusing on the mechanics of a "perfect" swing, Chopra reveals how golf can be mastered through mindfulness, a form of awareness that combines sharp focus and relaxation at the same time. Expanded awareness, he tells us, can accomplish much more than external mechanics to improve one's game. But Golf for Enlightenment is also an engrossing story about Adam, an Everyman who is playing a terrible round of golf when he meets a mysterious young teaching pro named Leela. In seven short but profound lessons detailing spiritual strategies, she teaches Adam the essence of a game that has much to explain about life itself. Chopra has taken the unique message in Golf for Enlightenment nationwide, teaching the essential tenets of his program at lectures and seminars to golfers everywhere. His message continues to help players turn an obsession into a positive life path. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Deepak Chopra, MD.

I would like to tell you a little about my story and see if you can relate. At 37 years old I can look back now and say that my battle with generalized and social anxiety probably started around 10 years old. Pretty young right?I would panic for weeks before having to speak in front of the class, I would sit at the back of the class and would dread group assignments where I would have to interact with people and even family gatherings would get me nervous.I carried this into my teens and adult life where I would not go for jobs due to the fear of what the boss or future work friends would think of me. I would panic for weeks prior to a work social event or party with friends and would get sweaty and stressed on the way there.Who wants to spend the rest of their life like this? like you I wanted to have the confidence to meet new people, go for new and better jobs and spend time with friends and family and feel totally relaxed while doing it.I researched and spoke to professionals and began to put a plan in place to beat my mental illness for good after many failed attempts. Slowly, I got on top of it and although its something I have to be aware of moving forward I can say my life has improved out of sight.I'm going to hit you with some stats now, did you know that in the US alone 40 million adults aged 18 and above suffer from an anxiety disorder? Did you also know that only 36 percent of those people actually get help? And that is just the United States, that's crazy right? Once I read that I knew I wanted to help make a difference and that's the reason I wrote his book with the exercises that helped me.In this book you will discover:One key 5 minute exercise that you can use daily to automatically put you in a positive frame of mind, its impossible not tooThe underlying issue you are really suffering from and believe it or not, it's not anxietyA skill that you can pe 1.

The book is intended for everyone: young and old, fat and thin, sick and healthy, professionals, amateurs, ignorant, and doctors. Unfortunately, awareness of the importance of healthy food came to me only in adulthood, although, on the other hand, it is good that it came ... Healthy people are now in the trend. However, on the way to achieve good health has grown tall and strong wall of the common myths about what is good and what is bad. Society does not imagine how much idea of proper food is far from the reality, what a fantastic perspective regarding health is hidden. It turned out that the question of proper food is the most difficult of everything created by people - rocket, internet, nuclear energy - because still it is not resolved. Modern people, especially with access to Internet are unable to understand lots of information. For detailed analysis is required time, skill and experience. In addition, advertising and marketing lead us into the world of commerce, which almost is not related with health care. Many of us do not have any idea about healthy food. Principles of food are very simple, they were developed not by luminaries of science, by nature.
Using inductive qualitative research methods this work explores how young Vietnamese university graduates experience their work in the context of intercultural work environments characteristic of International Non-Government Organisations which have been established as a central aspect of globalisation in post DoiMoi Vietnam. The work engages with the literature on graduate attributes and extend the prevailing research agenda by drawing on theoretical perspectives on intercultural competent and agency as found in the work of scholars such as Bochner and Bourdieu. Data were obtained from indepth interviews, conducted in two phases, with 19 young graduates working in INGOs in Vietnam, 8 INGO senior managers and 8 University teachers. The analysis should help shed some light on how young graduates become strategic and intercultural competent in this new world of work, and should be especially useful to professionals in work skill fields, or anyone else who may be considering tuning university education to graduates' employability. This book, therefore, suggests that providing greater opportunity for students to participate in open, intercultural contexts of learning is essential.
This compact resource presents current data on health literacy as it affects child health outcomes, with a sharp focus on improving communication between healthcare providers and pediatric patients and their families.
