Water is the thread that connects us all. The capable student of water management must have the ability to clearly and concisely ask the right questions, formulate an actionable research plan, expeditiously carry out the research, and disseminate findings so that they may be applied directly, adapted to suit particular needs and cases, and/or debated vigorously in the public domain. To this end, Playing the Water Dance serves as a timely and useful tool for the postgraduate student, mid-career academic, skilled practitioner, and seasoned consultant alike.

This book is a refreshment to the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and Chocolate for A Woman's Soul, by going beyond mind and spirit nurturing to the wonderful experience of nurturing in water. As an aquatics fitness instructor and therapist for over twenty years, Juliana Larson has observed water's unmistakable power to foster bonds between women. Perhaps because water has been an archetypal female symbol for thousands of years, women find great nurturing potential in a shared aquatic environment. Water is a gentle healer, and can consequently provide significant mental, spiritual, and physical benefits as one moves one's body within it. As Larson demonstrates through this collection of true stories, a pool of water can improve one's well-being, body image, and overall fitness while working to provoke positive life change. Water Dance opens all women, young and old, to entirely new ways of nurturing themselves and one another, improving their lives in the process.

In the bestselling tradition of The Red Tent, The Family Orchard is a spellbinding novel of one unforgettable family, the orchard they've tended for generations, and a love story that transcends the ages. Nomi Eve's lavishly imagined account begins in Palestine in 1837, with the tale of the irrepressible family matriach, Esther, who was lured by the smell of baking bread into an affair with the local baker. Esther passes on her passionate nature to her son, Eliezer, whose love for the forbidden Golda threatened to tear the family apart. And to her granddaughter, Avra the thief, a tiny wisp of a girl who thumbed her nose at her elders by swiping precious stones from the local bazaar-and grew to marry a man she met at the scene of a crime. At once epic and intimate, The Family Orchard is a rich historical tapestry of passion and tradition from a storyteller of beguiling power. From the Trade Paperback edition.
