5. Intentional Parenting (Large Print 16pt) - Yvonne Sum

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

A fresh approach to parenting that will get results for you and your kids. Everyone belongs to a tribe. It is not just the football club or the mothers' group, in a world powered by the instant accessibility of the internet there are many different tribes catering for every aspect of your life. Navigating those tribes is a tricky business. It takes leadership, and the first tribe we learn this from is our family. Parenting can be hard - especially if you may have been finding it challenging to 'read the book' that is your child. It takes intention, attention and action ... planning, persistence, and practice, practice, practice. So, what does it mean for YOU to be a parent? What is your intention as a parent? How will you fulfill this? What do you commit to do? What is your First step? Taking a good look at her own family Yvonne Sum identified seven foundation stones of successful parenting, the 7R's of parenting. Each one is fully explored and explained in Intentional Parenting, and together they are the basis of leading your family tribe. The 7R's are all lessons that are equally applicable in business. But, unlike a leader in a giant corporation, you cannot sack your family and, unlike many businesses today, you are highly invested in their future success. Together that is the carrot and the stick of investing time in developing your leadership role for the benefit of the family. Intentional parenting is a journey that begins with your conscious decision to become a leader and a PLAYPAL to your family. I simply love the perspectives learnt from my children and those I meet on my parenting journey, and what I pass on along the way. Dr. Yvonne Sum

11. Whispering Pines The Northern Roots of American Music from Hank Snow to the Band (Large Print 16pt) - Jason Schneider

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Whispering Pines is the first comprehensive history of Canada's immense songwriting legacy, from Gordon Lightfoot to Joni Mitchell. Canadian songwriters have always struggled to create work that reflects the environment in which they were raised, while simultaneously connecting with a mass audience. For most of the 20th century, that audience lay outside Canada, making the challenge that much greater. While nearly every songwriter who successfully crossed this divide did so by immersing themselves in the American and British forms of blues, folk, country, and their bastard offspring, rock and roll, traces of Canadian sensibilities were never far beneath the surface of the eventual end product. What were these sensibilities, and why did they transfer so well outside Canada? With each passing decade, a clear picture eventually emerged of what Canadian songwriters were contributing to popular music, and subsequently passing on to fellow artists, both within Canada and around the world. Just as Hank Snow became a giant in country music, Ian & Sylvia and Gordon Lightfoot became crucial components of the folk revival. In the folk - rock boom that followed in the late '60s, songs by The Band and Leonard Cohen were instant standards, while during the '70s singer/songwriter movement few artists were more revered than Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. This is the first thorough exploration of how these, along with other lesser - known but no less significant, artists came to establish a distinct Canadian musical identity from the 1930s to the end of the 1970s. Anecdotes explaining the personal and creative connections that many of the artists shared comprise a large aspect of the storytelling, along with first - person interviews and extensive research. The emphasis is on the essential music - how and where it originated, and what impact it eventually had on both the artists' subsequent work, and the wider musical world.

15. Writing-The Sacred Art Beyond the Page to Spiritual Practice (Large Print 16pt) - Rami Shapiro

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Push your writing through the trite and the boring to something fresh, something transformative.
''Writing as spiritual practice has nothing to do with readers per se. You aren't writing to be read; you are writing to be freed. Writing as spiritual practice is conspiratorial rather than inspirational. It conspires to strip away everything you use to maintain the illusion of certainty, security and self - identity. Where spiritual writing seeks to bind you all the more tightly to the self you imagine yourself to be, writing as spiritual practice intends to free you from it.''
- from Rami's Preface
This isn't about how to write spiritual books. It isn't about the romance of writing. It doesn't cover the ins and outs of publishing and building a brand. Instead, this fresh and unapologetic guide to writing as a spiritual practice approaches writing as a way to turn the spiral of body, heart, mind, soul and spirit that leads to spiritual awakening.
Lead by renowned spirituality teacher Rami Shapiro and award - winning writer and writing coach Aaron Shapiro - and featuring over fifty unique, practical exercises - it takes you beyond assigning inspirational words to the page. It shows you how to use your writing to unlock the joy of life and the infinite perspectives and possibilities that living provides.

20. More to Keep Us Warm (Large Print 16pt) - Jacob Scheier

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Both chronicle and confrontation, the poems of Jacob Scheier's debut work out and through notions of loss. As the death of a young man's mother instigates and informs these investigations, the realities of romantic failures become inextricably connected, and in the process More to Keep Us Warm maps the limitations, and breaking points, of the human heart. Questioning how and why we fall in and out of love becomes the collection's haunting refrain. At the same time, Scheier's poems mourn the absence of both religious and cultural identity. Facing the painful and confusing losses of his life, the support of the only ''tradition'' the writer knows - an atheist, socialist upbringing - proves unsatisfying. In response, More to Keep Us Warm explores the formation of a new, complex sense of self as inherited belief systems fail. With humour, sardonic wit, and conversational charm, this search engages and struggles with Judeo - Christian tradition to become an intimate meditation on the nature of God in a secular world.
