Artful Collaborative Inquiry comprises essays created collectively by a group of scholars and artists, the majority of whom have several decades of experience of working together. The book challenges commonly-held, individualistic beliefs about ownership, authorship and scholarly and artistic ethics and practices. The essays exemplify the entangled kinds of scholarly and artistic works that emerge in a post-human world, where humans, other species, environments, things and other matters, all matter and are of equal concern in the conduct of ethical artful scholarship. Situated at the (messy) crossroads where contemporary scholarship and artistic practice converge, the seamless mo(ve)ment and interplay between text and image make up the main body of the work in this book. The chapters combine the playful use and merging of time, space and place, researcher and researched, to give a unique exemplar of research and creativity in the rapidly emerging field of collaborative scholarship. It will be of particular interest to creative and qualitative scholars wishing to conduct more artful research, and artists engaging with scholarship.

This is a book of poems written for the readers to share life's experiences, fantasies, and thoughts. It is about growth: grasping the awe from every moment in life. Some poems were based on real life situations some pure imagination. They were written so that all can understand. Everyone has highs and lows in life. I hope my readers will be able to enjoy while also taking something away with them from my poetry.

In this distinctive guide to the craft of writing, author Laraine Herring shows us how to tune into our bodies and connect with our emotions so that our writing becomes an expression of our full beings, rather than just an intellectual exercise. With warmth and wisdom, Herring offers a path to discovering "deep writing"—prose that is unique, expressive, and profoundly authentic. Lessons and imaginative exercises show you how to: stay with your writing when your mind or body starts to pull you away; explore the five senses in your writing; and approach your writing without judgment. Writing Begins with the Breath will open up a whole world of creativity for people who may not have considered themselves writers before, while also providing keen insights into the craft for seasoned writers.

Not your typical book about gratitude. This book is for the cynic, the hopeless, the happy and the already grateful. Do you have an opinion, a belief in gratitude or a passionate knowing? Is it how you were taught, or was it a lesson you learned through experience. People fake many things in life and I found that some even fake gratitude. The message in this book invites you on a self discovery journey sometimes through other perspectives and opinions. Question its message as you question your current opinions and perceptions.

This book presents multiple cultural and contextual takes on working performances of academic/writer/thinker, both inside and outside the academy. With worldwide, seismic shifts taking place in both the contexts and terrains of universities, and subsequently the altering of what it means to write as an academic and work in academia, the editors and contributors use writing to position and re-position themselves as academics, thinkers and researchers. Using as a point of departure universities and academic/writing work contexts shaped by the increasing dominance of commodification, measurement and performativity, this volume explores responses to these evolving, shifting contexts. In response to the growing global interest in writing as performance, this book breaks new ground by theorizing multiple identity constructions of academic/writer/researcher; considering the possibilities and challenges of engaging in academic writing work in ways that are authentic and sustainable. This reflective and interdisciplinary volume will resonate with students and scholars of academic writing, as well as all those working to reconcile different facets of identity.

River of Breath a healing path to vitality, ease, and well-being by Margot Biestman In this time of profound change and renewed hope, high demands are being placed on each of us. We are called upon to respond with devotion and courage. River of Breath offers a path from old to new ways of being, a path toward personal and cultural transformation. Read it and be touched by a truth within yourself that can feed your body and soul. Many of us long for this experience. Authentic to the core you don't read this book you experience it. I breathe more consciously through each exquisite life tale, poem, and artwork. It flows and guides my flowing. Totally unique. Nancy Herrick, Physician's Assistant, Homeopath Margot Biestman is saying something very personal and distinct, yet universal at the same time. She creates a portal through which others can walk into an experiential realm. She manages to do this succinctly, in a few lines, in such a way that I am reminded of the very best poetry where the poet is saying the deepest truth of what he or she knows. Ann Nix, M.A. CHT, Artist, Teacher When you do things from your soul you feel a river in you, a joy. Rumi Synopsis River of Breath brings to light how we can meet today's challenges with greater flexibility and confidence, and with less stress and fear, through a unique practice called breathexperience. We can find benefit and truth in the simplicity of sensing how breath flowing through our body without our control can support vitality, ease, and well-being, whatever the circumstances. Margot Biestman transports the reader beyond thinking and imagining to sensing the simple, ancient, yet immediate reality of breath movement in the body. Through sensing her own breath as she writes, she allows her words and drawings to emerge from her essence and flow onto the page. For the reader, just taking in these expressions of her truth is itself an invitation to join her in an intimate breathexperience. Margot describes how, even in our culture with its fast pace and attitude to achieve at any cost, we do not have to be victims of pushing and pulling our bodies around, creating strain, anxiety, pain, and illness. Through the experience of breath, we recognize our choices to support the truth of who we are. Conditioned patterns fall away and though some occasionally return, they lose their impact. We have the capacity to make a difference in our lives and the lives of those around us. Margot leads us on her personal journey in the experience of breath for three-and-a-half months. She includes emotions and thoughts as parts of the oneness that breath creates body, mind, soul, and spirit. Even when she loses breath awareness, she learns from these experiences in practicing the art of being human. A separate section contains detailed guidelines for specific breathexperience sequences, inviting the reader to practice allowing and sensing the natural breath moving in the body. Principles of breathexperience, benefits, application in daily life, a breath class, individual hands-on treatment, and a brief history complete the book.

The focus of this book is STRESS OUT, not Stressed-out. Stressed-out is a condition you may be experiencing; Stress Out is a solution, a command to tell stress who's the boss. This book provides quick tips, recommendations and techniques that can assist you in having a more healthy relationship with stress.

Part guided journaling practice, part interactive magical grimoire, The Magical Writing Grimoire shows you how to incorporate writing as a magical tool to create healing and amplify spell-casting. Whenever and wherever you are, word magic is with you. During times of chaos or pain, or simply when you need a cosmic boost, writing can help. In fact, healers, therapists, and magical practitioners have long incorporated writing in their practices. From letter writing for creating closure to dream diaries, writing is a powerful process for moving your dreams into manifestation. The Magical Writing Grimoire approaches writing as a self-actualizing, intentional, and healing act. You will learn how to combine writing with ritual and magic for self-discovery, clarifying intentions, creating and making things happen, and manifestation. You will also be guided in how to create a personal grimoire—a magical book of self rituals, spells, and intentions. Each chapter contains writing prompts that also incorporate magical ritual and tools including working with crystals, spell incantation, or candle alchemy. Other rituals and prompts may be set up for certain moon phases or ask you to bury or burn a piece of paper. Equal parts practical and inspiring, The Magical Writing Grimoire shows you how to wield your word as your wand.
