We cannot treat our bodies like a trash disposal and expect them to be healthy and protect us from germs and disease. That is not the truth and it should not be anyone's reality. Nutrition is about balance and picking foods that give your body what it needs to be healthy and energized. I have come to realize that mind/body consciousness is one of the most important things we need in order to live a healthy life. Being in touch with your body, having a mind/body connection is vital to healthy eating, a good exercise program and overall physical and mental health. Pilates teaches you to attach all of your movements to your core, which is the strongest part of your body. Pilates teaches you to be present in mind, body and spirit. Pilates is a lifestyle founded on principles that will help you feel better, make better choices and enjoy life fully. Pilates is a daily process to Health. I have been teaching fitness classes for 12 years and Pilates is the best thing I have seen in those twelve years. This book makes it easy for you to workout whether you are a beginner or advanced. This book has a beginners workout and a complete intermediate mat pilates workout routine. You are given modifications and variations to help make it work for your level. There are over 100 pictures to help guide you through the workout and ensure you are performing the movements correctly.

Where are we at with studies of Body & Society? What are the key accomplishments in the field? This book provides the clearest and most comprehensive account of work in this area to date. Based on a novel theory of action it surveys the terrain by arguing that human identity, social relationships and moral figurations develop as a result of people living in and seeking to reach beyond the limits of their bodily being. From this starting point the author undertakes a series of studies on sport, transgenderism, migration, illness, survival and belief which illuminate the relationship between bodily change and action. The book provides an unrivalled survey of theory and empirical research and explores the hitherto neglected tradition of American 'body studies'. Wide in scope, systematic and incisive the book represents a landmark addition to the field of studies in body and society.

Despite all the medical and media attention focused on the rate of overweight and obesity in the African American population, African American images and body types are greatly influencing changes in the fashion, fitness, advertising, television and movie industries. This is because overweight, like beauty, can be in the eye of the beholder. Most research studies investigating attitudes about body image and body type among African Americans have shown they are more satisfied with their bodies than are their white counterparts and that there appears to be a wider range of acceptable body shapes and weights, and a more flexible standard of attractiveness, among black Americans as compared to whites. That fact is not being lost on leaders of industries that might profit from understanding this wider range of beauty, as well as playing to it. In this book, medical anthropologist Eric Bailey introduces and explains the self-acceptance and body image satisfaction of African Americans, and traces how that has spurred changes in industry. His book fills the void of scientific evidence to enhance the understanding of African Americans' perceptions related to body image and beauty—and is the first to document these issues from the perspective of an African American male. Despite all the medical and media attention focused on the rate of overweight and obesity in the African American population, African American images and body types are greatly influencing changes in the fashion, fitness, advertising, television, and movie industries. This is because overweight, like beauty, can be in the eye of the beholder. Most research studies investigating attitudes about body image and body type among African Americans have shown they are more satisfied with their bodies than are their white counterparts. Most black women, for example, are of course concerned with how they look, but do not judge themselves in terms of their weight and do not believe they are valued mostly on the basis of their bodies. Black teen girls most often say being thick and curvaceous with large hips and ample thighs is seen as the most desirable body shape. Thus, there appears to be a wider range of acceptable body shapes and weights, and a more flexible standard of attractiveness, among black Americans as compared to whites. That fact is not lost on leaders of industries that might profit from understanding this wider range of beauty, as well as playing to it. Voluptuous supermodel Tyra Banks is just one African American who's broken the mold in that industry. The effects have been seen right down to department and local clothes stores, where lines of larger and plus-size fashions are expanding, becoming more colorful and more ornate. In the fitness industry, health gurus Madonna Grimes and Billy Blanks have been revolutionizing how people get fit and how fitness needs to be redeveloped for the African American population. Advertising has taken a similar turn, not the least manifestation of which were the major campaigns Dove and Nike ran in 2005 with plus-sized actresses (who continue to appear in promotions for both companies). In movies and on television shows, the African American beautiful body image has followed suit. In this book, medical anthropologist Eric Bailey introduces and explains the self-acceptance and body image satisfaction of African Americans, and traces how that has spurred changes in industry. His book fills the void of scientific evidence to enhance the understanding of African Americans' perceptions related to body image and beauty—and is the first to document these issues from the perspective of an African American male.

In Gendering Bodies, Crawley, Foley and Shehan demonstrate how gendered messages about bodies and the social world shape our physical bodies and social selves. At work, in sports and during sex, gendered messages constantly organize our common, everyday settings through a feedback loop of confirmations and disruptions in everyday talk and interaction. This book is an accessible, yet comprehensive, theory of a sociology of the gendered body.

The psychiatric view of homosexuality has undergone a fascinating evo lution in recent years. This includes not only the change from viewing homosexuality as a diagnosable illness, as opposed to an alternative life style, but also the development of considerable professional concern for providing appropriate mental health services to this previously under served minority community. There has been an increasing recognition of the need for comprehensive services including, but not limited to, counseling, individual psychotherapy, and couples therapy. This book is written for the practicing clinician, and offers a compre hensive survey of the important clinical issues involved in the counsel ing and psychotherapy of gay men and lesbian women. It is an extraor dinarily practical book and its breadth and depth make it appropriate for both the novice and the experienced therapist. SHERWYN M. WOODS Series Editor ix Preface We hear our mentors but do not often heed them. Freud's supportive, nonjudgmental approach to homosexuality provided an ambience with in which discoveries could be made, that is, the discovery that homosex uality was not a disease of mental degeneration and that sexuality, in the sense of a fundamental human propensity to find pleasure in social and physical attachments, was at its root directed to both sexes. The ad herence to a nonjudgmental approach was short-lived, suffered repres sion by homophobic defenses, and scientific zeal was directed toward "cure" rather than comprehension of the homosexual state.

"...the minute I picked this book up I was on an emotional rollercoaster. It was the most amazing journey to find myself crying one minute and laughing the next with the author's infectious wit and undeniable honesty. The diary entries are so raw and vulnerable, and have been written in a way that I have never experienced before. I identified with many things throughout the book and found myself recalling significant events from my own adolescent years that I believed I had blocked or forgotten about. At times it felt like there was nowhere to hide; the words I was reading were so confronting it felt as though they were written just for me! Taking this journey with the author allowed me to deal with what was coming up for me personally, and move past those feelings to a place that felt good for me. With every page that I read I couldn't believe how I was not only totally enthralled in the authors personal life story, but that I was actually also uncovering so much about who I am as a person at my very core. It allowed me to discover the parts of myself that I didn't like or accept yet, and also how to recognise this in my day-to-day life. I have now learned to accurately identify my feelings in each moment of my day, and with some conscious effort also remember to be much more kind and loving towards myself. I thank the writer of this book for allowing me a glimpse into her own life through courageously sharing and exposing her soul. What I have gained from reading it is without a doubt the best gift anyone could ever give."

In the last three decades, the human body has gained increasing prominence in contemporary political debates, and it has become a central topic of modern social sciences and humanities. Modern technologies – such as organ transplants, stem-cell research, nanotechnology, cosmetic surgery and cryonics – have changed how we think about the body. In this collection of thirty original essays by leading figures in the field, these issues are explored across a number of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives, including pragmatism, feminism, queer theory, post-modernism, post-humanism, cultural sociology, philosophy and anthropology. A wide range of case studies, which include cosmetics, diet, organ transplants, racial bodies, masculinity and sexuality, eating disorders, religion and the sacred body, and disability, are used to appraise these different perspectives. In addition, this Handbook explores various epistemological approaches to the basic question: what is a body? It also offers a strongly themed range of chapters on empirical topics that are organized around religion, medicine, gender, technology and consumption. It also contributes to the debate over the globalization of the body: how have military technology, modern medicine, sport and consumption led to this contemporary obsession with matters corporeal? The Handbook’s clear, direct style will appeal to a wide undergraduate audience in the social sciences, particularly for those studying medical sociology, gender studies, sports studies, disability studies, social gerontology, or the sociology of religion. It will serve to consolidate the new field of body studies.

Delve into the nature and mystery of wisdom in adult education, and what it might mean for the practice of adult education in the complexity of changing times. This issue begins with a look at the nature of wisdom, the wisdom of nature, and how it relates to current issues in the field of adult education. It then looks to neuroscience and the evolution of sacred knowing to explore the connection between learning and wisdom. Covering transcendent and practical wisdom, the issue then draws on Eastern, Western, and Mideastern cultural and religious perspectives to develop a fuller understanding of wisdom. Finally, it covers the aspects of gender and/or culture in relation to wisdom, though in quite different ways. This is the 131st volume of the Jossey–Bass higher education quarterly report series New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education. Noted for its depth of coverage, this indispensable series explores issues of common interest to instructors, administrators, counselors, and policymakers in a broad range of adult and continuing education settings, such as colleges and universities, extension programs, businesses, libraries, and museums.

Becoming What is Changing You Are the Perfect Tool to Achieve This Universal Principles for Transforming Self, Systems & Organizations Our world is changing. Our technology is changing the way we live and communicate. Modern science opens gateways to new world views. The rate at which we are exposed to new information, new paradigms and new ideas is accelerating every day. Amidst all this overwhelming change, there is an inherent intelligence in the Universe that continuously self-organizes. We have the choice to align with this intelligence or continue to operate within old structures - in government, business, education, healthcare and even in our personal lives. We often cling to hierarchical models, which no longer work for us. Those at the top of the ladder are fearful of what might happen if they relinquish control. Those at the bottom, surrender responsibility to those above. Many of us easily get stuck in a pattern of blaming 'the system' for everything that goes wrong. But the truth is - we are ALL the system. Whether you are a seasoned CEO or an entry-level employee, YOU have the ability - and the responsibility - to engage with 'the system' as a 'living being' composed of all those involved. In Becoming What is Changing: Universal Principles for Transforming Self, Systems & Organizations (Volume 1: Exposition), author Veerle de Bock integrates more than two decades of experience within the healthcare industry, along with years of work as a teacher, supervisor and process facilitator, to bring you a candid and refreshing look at how we can reinvent the way we operate within our organizations, and allow our systems to become 'living beings' with a capacity for self-organization. In Becoming What is Changing (volume 1), you'll find dozens of valuable anecdotal examples of real-life situations combined with a wealth of practical concepts, skills and tools you can apply in any scenario, such as: Your full potential - Fresh perspectives on discovering who you really are, and how to bring your whole self into your organization. Dynamic facilitation - A new way of meeting and listening that can help your team find solutions to problems you thought were impossible to overcome. Life pulse - Understanding the natural life-cycle of organizations and ideas, so you can identify the right time to reflect and the right time to ACT. Witness/Ask/Experience - A reflective tool to help you and your organization discover where you are 'stuck' so you can move forward. 100% Responsibility - Learning how to take responsibility for what is happening in the moment, including the responsibility for being open and understood. Plus many others. A Call to Action to Idealists, Change-Makers and Social Reformers! If we simply continue to complain about 'the old system', we are only colluding with it. But when we are ready to let go of blame and judgement - and take full responsibility for whatever happens to us and around us - we can attune with the change that is already happening in the Universe, and we can achieve truly great things in our organizations, our lives and the world at large. So, are you ready? Then Becoming What is Changing is THE book for you.
