A Handful of Quiet presents one of the best known and most innovative meditation practices developed by Thich Nhat Hanh as part of the Plum Village community's practice with children. Pebble meditation is a playful and fun activity that parents and educators can do with their children to introduce them to meditation. It is designed to involve children in a hands-on and creative way that touches on their interconnection with nature. Practicing pebble meditation can help relieve stress, increase concentration, nourish gratitude, and can help children deal with difficult emotions. A Handful of Quiet is a concrete activity that parents and educators can introduce to children in school settings, in their local communities or at home, in a way that is meaningful and inviting. Any adult wishing to plant seeds of peace, relaxation, and awareness in children will find this unique meditation guide helpful. Children can also enjoy doing pebble meditation on their own. Beautiful color illustrations by Wietske Vriezen, illustrator of Planting Seeds (ISBN-13: 978-1-935209-80-5) and Mindful Movements (978-1-888375-79-4).

Meena Srinivasan began teaching in order to touch lives, but with the demands of covering her curriculum she all but forgot her aspiration. During a retreat with Thich Nhat Hanh, Meena learned for the first time about mindfulness. In Teach, Breathe, Learn, Srinivasan highlights how mindfulness can be an effective tool in the classroom. What makes this book truly unique is Srinivasan’s perspective as a classroom teacher, wrestling daily with the conditions about which she writes. Each chapter begins with a personal narrative concerning a challenge Srinivasan faced during the school day and how a specific mindfulness practice helped. Testimonials from students, colleagues, and parents appear in each chapter, along with a mindfulness practice. Part 1 helps teachers develop compassion and shift from “reacting” to “responding” to demands. Part 2 offers techniques for cultivating loving-kindness and seeing students, colleagues, and parents as oneself. The author shares what research says about the effects of mindfulness practice on academic, social, and emotional learning. The last section of the book introduces the complete curriculum teachers can use to incorporate mindfulness into their classroom, replete with lesson plans, PowerPoint diagrams, handouts, and homework assignments.

The Women's Health Body Clock Diet provides you with round-the-clock calorie control to finally eliminate the guesswork around dieting and the inadvertent cheating that so often sabotages good intentions. Researchers have identified four key times of the day after 11 a.m. when women's hormones cause significant fluctuations in energy and metabolism, revving it high or leaving it sluggish, triggering extreme hunger or allowing satisfaction on fewer calories. Large surveys show that women who understand their hunger cues and can tailor their eating and exercising routines to specific times of the day will lose twice as much weight as those who don't follow a weight-loss timing plan. The Women's Health Body Clock Diet offers you a 3-step plan to reprogram your metabolism for fast initial weight-loss and the tools to improve blood sugar stability for long-term body shape maintenance. The Women's Health Body Clock Diet also provides an hour-by-hour analysis of hormone-driven fluctuations in hunger and lays out a step-by-step food-based solution: an innovative mindful eating plan that helps you overcome the cravings that lead to high-calorie overeating. The 30-day meal plan offers recipes, shopping lists, and a daily exercise to-do list, virtually guaranteeing compliance and 10 or more pounds of weight-loss, mostly from the tummy and thighs.
