Honey, Does This Make My Butt Look Big?: A Couple's Guide to Food and Body Talk
Author: Lydia Hanich
How do couples tackle ticklish questions like "Does this make me look fat?" or "Will you go on a diet with me?" What does one partner say when the other loses weight and then gains it back -- and more? Lydia Hanich has created a safe, fun guide to discussing thorny topics such as appearance, weight, food, exercise, sexuality, and eating disorders. Each chapter of Honey, Does This Make My Butt Look Big? presents loaded questions and precarious everyday scenarios with corresponding "right" and "wrong" answers. Included is a brief interpretation of the predicament along with sensible advice about what to say, what not to say, and why. Most partners have a sincere desire to support each other yet often unwittingly contribute to the problem rather than the solution. With cartoon illustrations and a healthy dose of humor, this book provides the answers to those most delicate questions.
Pele's Wish: Secrets of the Hawaiian Masters and Eternal Life
Author: Sondra Roy
The wisdom and spirituality of Hawaiian elders is a facet of Hawaiian culture that outsiders rarely see or truly understand. New Age veteran Sondra Ray and her personal guide, Auntie Pua, act as messengers of the Aloha spirit, sharing the sacred teachings of the Kahunas - the "transmitters of secrets" - through kitchen-table style storytelling and first-hand adventures. The ancient rituals and basic tenets of the Huna way - loving oneself, nurturing other beings and the land, and living in harmony with all of life - provide a powerful code of transformation, leading to a deeper spiritual life more in tune with the rhythms of the natural world. By identifying the three core selves present in everyone, and in coordinating the way the three selves interact, readers learn to control their own reality - this is the Huna Way.
