Quality without Marketing....

.... Oh, look, here's another pig flying past the window!


Seriously though. I found this post quite poignant, particularly the bit about quality being recognised without the need for marketing... 

Who reads books nowadays?

I'm blogging today at Happy Endings about this topic. Stop by and leave a comment....

Adding my post on the Christchurch Earthquake topic...

Since 22 February 2011, the media have served us images of destruction, hope and despair. We've heard moving stories of heroism and disturbing stories of opportunistic crimes and desperate cries of help from the survivors. We're read opinions on what to do with the ruined cathedral, unsafe suburbs, the OCR, the taxes and the portable toilets.

The noise made me reluctant to comment. Still, this blog can't exist in a vacuum.

Judith Orloff's Emotional Freedom

“Emotional Freedom is a must-read for anyone who's tired
of feeling frustrated, lonely, or stopped by fear."
-Deepak Chopra


Judith Orloff MD is a UCLA psychiatrist and a pioneer who bridges mainstream medicine with intuition, energy medicine, and spirituality. She invites you on a remarkable journey where you can embrace more happiness and mastery over negativity than you may have ever known. Our world is in the midst of a meltdown. She describes how to stay intuitively and spiritually centered in our times.

Dr. Orloff celebrates the exciting paperback launch of her New York Times bestseller Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life. “I’m presenting the unique process I use with patients and in my own life to view emotions as a path to spiritual and intuitive awakening (not EFT). I synthesize traditional medicine with energy medicine to offer you new tools to master emotions and become heroes in your own life. Inner peace leads to outer peace in the world.”

Publisher's Weekly’s review of Emotional Freedom says:
“Superbly written..Dr. Orloff regards emotions as a training ground for the soul, and views ‘every victory over fear, anxiety, and resentment as a way to develop your spiritual muscles.’”

In the book, you will discover:
• Four questions to transform fear with courage
• What your emotional type is
• How to stop absorbing the emotions of others
• How to combat emotional vampires with compassion
• The spiritual meaning of depression and hope
