An exciting new, full-colour edition of Face Reading in Chinese Medicine featuring over 200 colour photographs and practical instructions on how to conduct a face reading! Face reading has been part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for many centuries, and Professor Lillian Bridges is a popular academic and international lecturer on the subject who gained her fascinating knowledge through her family line of Master Face Readers in China. Based on an understanding of the shapes, markings and features of a face, practitioners can learn about the health and life of a patient relating to the principles of Chinese medicine. In addition to understanding how the body's internal functions - physical, psychological and emotional - can be seen on a face, practitioners can also learn how to evaluate Shen to understand non-verbal expressions. Technical and detailed information is presented in an upbeat, insightful and highly readable manner. This was the first book to focus on the deeper aspects of face reading and diagnosis, this edition includes ancient Taoist knowledge regarding the Original Face and Facial Jing and Qi markers which have previously only been taught through the oral tradition. Clear discussions demonstrate how this technique can be used as a supplement to other diagnostic tools in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Engaging, insightful, highly readable text is written by a well-known and experienced lecturer in the field. Extensive illustrations give you a clear understanding of theories and techniques. A focus on the deeper aspects of face reading and diagnosis helps readers become more conscious of their actions, reactions, and the health consequences of behavior.

Stand and Face the Morning tells a robust, romantic story of the Musick and Lewis families of Colonial Virginia, who followed the migration down the Great Wagon Road into the backcountry of the Carolinas. The narrative follows them through the trials of hewing homesteads from the wilderness, wrestling with the choices of allegiance at the onset of the Revolutionary War, and struggling for survival as they are caught up in the bitter civil war which engulfs their homeland. The central figures are the patriarch Abram Musick and his wife Sarah, whose abiding love undergirds the family. Tormented eldest son Lewis carries within himself the wrongs and hurts he encounters. He joins brothers, cousins, and neighbors in the Patriot cause in his unholy quest for vengeance. Strong women characters walk beside their men and, through artistry and grace, produce families worthy of a new nation: Sarahs daughters Terrell and Sally, neighbor Saro Tweddy whose husband travels with Daniel Boone into Kentucky, and Annie McKinney whose eyes look ever toward the western lands. In the end, the families remain strong and loyal to one another. We are bound by ties of blood and by a love which will neer die. Together as family we shll face with hope whateer the morrow brings. Reviews Adventure and romance, joy and loss fill these pages as Owens lively story carries us along the rough trails of these wilderness roads. Sit and enjoy. - Jim Minick, author of Finding a Clear Path, Burning Heaven, and Her Secret Song. The American Revolution tears apart a frontier community in this gripping historical novel. When Abram and Sarah Musick lead their clanseven children with assorted servants, nephews and inlaws in towto White Oak Mountain on the western margins of North Carolina, they think theyve found paradise. In this region of virgin timber and rich bottomland, nature showers its bounty on them even when it almost kills them. (Well, I daresay the good thing is we shll have a haunch of bear with our huckleberry dumplings tomorrow. [sic]) Alas, the escalating quarrel between Britain and the colonies disrupts their bliss in their corner of the South, the revolution becomes a savage civil war pitting Patriots against Tories, Indians against whites, coastal planters and merchants against backwoods farmers and neighbor against neighbor. Abram wants to sit out the storm, but his sons, led by the brooding, impetuous Lewis, rally to the Patriot cause. Life doesnt stop just because theres a war onfarmers have to fit in stints of militia service around the cycle of planting and harvestingbut it grows increasingly desperate as Patriot settlers face raids by loyalist irregulars and their Cherokee allies. After his sweetheart is murdered by Tory marauders, Lewis leads his guerrilla band on a brutal campaign of vengeance as Sarah agonizes over the hardening of her sons heart. The authors limpid prose, steeped in the pious, musical language of the era, brings this absorbing narrative to life with well-observed period detail that encompasses everything from log-cabin building techniques to Sarahs herbal medicine. (Slippery-elm bark and fried onions, it seems, are great for gunshot wounds.) Owens brings readers the grit and trauma of the battlefield, but also the quieter rhythms of farming and trading, cooking and childcareand hoping anxiously for loved ones to return from peril. The result is an indelible portrait of a family struggling to hold together as the world turns upside down. A richly textured tale that registers epic events on the most intimate scale.

Shows that the key to effectively leading difficult meetings lies not in acquiring more tools and techniques but in your state of mind Offers dozens of stories, exercises and practices to help readers cultivate a grounded, compassionate, purposeful presence Draws on Dressler’s interviews with 35 distinguished experts in facilitation, negotiation, organizational development and leadership High heat meetings seem to be happening in more and more organizations these days. Situations where participants are polarized, angry, fearful, confused. If you facilitate meetings for a living, all your well-learned techniques won’t help you in volatile and unpredictable situations like this. If you lead meetings as simply one part of your job, you probably feel even less able to cope. The answer is not another technique—not something you do to people. Veteran facilitator Larry Dressler has learned the hard way that when stakes are high, outcomes uncertain, and emotions running wild what makes the crucial difference is the leader’s presence. To work with people in high-heat meetings you have to work on yourself. Standing in the Fire shares not just Dressler’s experiences but also the insights of 35 iconic facilitators, leaders, conveners, and change agents, all with an eye to helping you stay grounded and focused enough to make the kind of inventive, split-second decisions these pressure-cooker situations demand. He outlines the mindsets, the emotional and physical ways of being that will enable you to master yourself so you can remain firmly in service to the group, and offers dozens of practices for cultivating these capabilities before, during and after any meeting. In meetings as in the natural world fire can be creative rather than destructive—but only if handled skillfully. Standing in the Fire gives you everything you need to keep from being draw into the inferno yourself and instead become a masterful fire tender.
