Started reading and listening to The Diamond Cutter by by Geshe MichaelRoach and Lama Christie McNally. It’s based on a very old Buddhist text and I am enjoying it so much that I have also bought the audible version so I can listen while I’m driving.
Yesterday we had Gippsland’s first dyslexia conference at The VRI. It was a good turnout and Dystech are making a very useful tool for educators.
Today I went to the “Coal Hole” zine making session at ReActivate Hub. Here’s a photo of Pollyannar sharing with us the history of Zines.
‘The Breakup Survival Kit’ gives a well balanced action plan for girls who have split up, whatever the circumstances. It contains some good, common-sense advice for young women and lays a positive path for moving forward into a new future.
As with the other Girlosophy books by Anthea Paul, it has healthy suggestions and gentle messages about keeping your self-esteem in tact and building on it in a situation that can be demanding. It has beautiful images and although a smaller format than the other Girlosophy books remains true to the uplifting philosophy and beauty of the series.
I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it for both young women and men to help to gain perspective during one of those trying times in life. Breaking-up is a big life challenge and most people experience it at least once in their life, this little book contains many wisdom’s that can ease that passage.
I read “The Love Survival Kit” over 2 nights. It’s brilliant. It covers everything I would want to say to my daughter and know for myself. I wish I’d read it when I was 16. I had to learn many of the contents the hands on or rather hearts on way, complete with messy and painful learning experiences. Not that I think a book could have changed it all, yet I feel there are great signposts given in this book. It is reassuring as “The Soul Survival Kit”, it builds self esteem. Even for older girls like myself.
I have loaned this book to a few young women, who have totally raved about it. I am really impressed with Anthea Paul. My son said the other day when I was raving about her to his friends, “Move over Al Gore, mum’s got a new hero!”
I have a couple of her other books ordered, so I ‘ll be sharing more in the future.
