Breathe & Be: Seven Guided Meditations to De-Stress, Calm Your Nerves, and Find Inner Strength and R

Author: Wetware Media Narrator: Melinda Wade Release Date: April 2020

Breathe & Be is a two volume collection of restorative guided meditations designed to help you de-stress, calm the mind, and practice deep self-care in the midst of challenging moments. This collection -volume 1 - is narrated by a male voice. (The meditations in volume 2 are narrated by a female voice.) The guided meditations utilize relaxation, mindfulness, and visualization to help you: • Relax the Body and Calm the Mind • Return to Center - the true source of inner strength and resilience • Cultivate Self-kindness and Compassion • Stop Overthinking Breathe & Be volume 1 includes five guided meditations, approximately 20 minutes each: 1. Breathing Space - use the breath to create a space to rest the body and soothe the mind. 2. Calm the Overthinking Mind - The mind can easily create scenarios that may generate anxiety. This meditation can help to soothe an overthinking mind. 3. Calm Breath, Calm Mind: A Mindful Breathing Technique - mindful breathing is a simple and natural way to gain relief from stress and anxiety, release intense or uncomfortable feelings, and improve your mood. 4. Surrender to This Deeply Restorative Moment - release stress and tension and return to the center of stillness. 5. Breathing the Mind to Stillness - use the breath to access the natural state of inner stillness to soothe the mind and rest the body. These stress-releasing meditations are not hypnosis or a step-by-step meditation guide. They offer gentle guidance but still allow space for your own experience and natural process. They are a light touch of guided support to bring your attention back to your natural state of stillness- the true source of inner strength and resilience. We hope you enjoy these guided meditations. Please look for volume two of the Breathe & Be collection.

Saint X Audiobook

Saint X

Claire is only seven years old when her college-age sister Alison vanishes from the luxury resort on the Caribbean island of Saint X on the last night of her family’s vacation. Several days later Alison’s naked body is found in a remote spot on a nearby cay, and two local men, employees at the resort, are arrested. But the evidence is slim, the timeline against it, and the men are soon released. It’s national tabloid news, a lurid mystery that will go unsolved, but for Claire’s family there is only the sad return home to broken lives. Years later, riding in a New York City taxicab, Claire recognizes the name on the cabbie’s licence, Clive Richardson – her driver is one of the men originally suspected of murdering her sister. The fateful encounter sets her on an obsessive pursuit of the truth, not only what happened on the night of Alison’s death, but the no less elusive question of exactly who was this sister she was barely old enough to know: a beautiful, changeable, provocative girl of eighteen at a turbulent moment of identity formation. As Claire doggedly shadows Clive, hoping to gain his trust, waiting for the slip that will uncover the truth, an unlikely intimacy develops between them, two people whose lives were forever marked by a tragedy. Alexis Schaitkin's Saint X is a flawlessly drawn and deeply moving story that hurtles to a devastating end.

The Angel and the Assassin: The Tiny Brain Cell That Changed the Course of Medicine Audiobook

The Angel and the Assassin: The Tiny Brain Cell That Changed the Course of Medicine

Author: Donna Jackson Nakazawa Narrator: Melinda Wade Release Date: January 2020

A thrilling story of scientific detective work and medical potential that illuminates the newly understood role of microglia-an elusive type of brain cell that is vitally relevant to our everyday lives.   "The rarest of books: a combination of page-turning discovery and remarkably readable science journalism."-Mark Hyman, MD, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Food: What the Heck Should I Eat? Until recently, microglia were thought to be merely the brain's housekeepers, helpfully removing damaged cells. But a recent groundbreaking discovery revealed them to be capable of terrifying Jekyll and Hyde behavior. When triggered-and anything that stirs up the immune system in the body can activate microglia-they can morph into destroyers, impacting a wide range of issues from memory problems and anxiety to depression and Alzheimer's. Under the right circumstances, however, microglia can be coaxed back into being angelic healers, able to repair the brain in ways that help alleviate symptoms and hold the promise to one day prevent disease. A fascinating behind-the-scenes account of this cutting-edge science, The Angel and the Assassin also explores the medical implications of these game-changing discoveries. Award-winning journalist Donna Jackson Nakazawa began her investigation with a personal interest-when diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder years ago, she was convinced there was something physical going on in her brain as well as her body, though no doctor she consulted could explain how the two could be interacting in this way. With the compassion born of her own experience, she follows practitioners and patients on the front lines of treatments that help to "reboot" microglia-from neurofeedback and intermittent fasting to transcranial magnetic stimulation and gamma light flicker therapy. She witnesses patients finding significant relief from pressing symptoms-and at least one stunning recovery-offering new hope to the tens of millions who suffer from mental, cognitive, and physical health issues. Proving once and for all the biological basis for the mind-body connection, the discovery of the true role of microglia stands to rewrite psychiatric and medical texts as we know them. Hailed as "riveting," "stunning," and "visionary," The Angel and the Assassin offers us a radically reconceived picture of human health and promises to change everything we thought we knew about how to heal ourselves.

The Connector Manager: Why Some Leaders Build Exceptional Talent-and Others Don't Audiobook

The Connector Manager: Why Some Leaders Build Exceptional Talent-and Others Don't

Author: Jaime Roca, Sari Wilde Narrator: Melinda Wade, René Ruiz Release Date: September 2019

Brought to you by Penguin. The best managers work smarter, not harder After conducting a unique global study of over 9,000 people, analysts at the world-leading sales research firm Gartner identified four distinct types of manager. Incredibly, they found one type consistently performs far better than the rest, and it wasn't the one they were expecting. Connector Managers understand that it's not enough for managers to just encourage and teach employees themselves, and that providing constant coaching to employees can actually be detrimental to their independent development. Instead, by connecting employees to others in the team or organisation, Connector Managers can help their employees develop a range of skills beyond their own areas of expertise. Although the four types of managers are more or less evenly distributed, employees with Connector Managers perform significantly better than others. Employees with Always-on Managers who provide constant feedback and coaching perform significantly worse. Drawing on their ground-breaking data-driven research, as well as in-depth case studies and extensive interviews with thousands of managers, you'll discover what behaviours define Connector Managers and how you can use them yourself to build brilliant, powerhouse teams.
