Mindfulness- based experiential exercises are incorporated throughout to help nourish self awareness and change.
Change For The BetterBy MohoroshBased Upon the Teachings ofRabbi Nachman of Breslov and of his student Rabbi Nosson of Breslov
Due to the economic crisis, organizations are accelerating the dramatic changes they're making in the way they run their businesses. Employees, faced with these rapid and often undesirable changes, need help — and so do the organizations they work for. If change is going to be a constant in people’s lives and the number and type of changes are going to happen faster, it is imperative that people develop the ability to live in this constantly changing world without feeling like victims, but rather like partners in the changes they face. Change Better is about how to develop the critical skills and tools necessary to cope with change at work and in one's personal life. These skills and the tools that go with them help people gain control over the changes in their lives. Jeanenne LaMarsh shows the ways in which readers can help themselves to change and the ways in which they will be able to accept, deal with, and maximize change with the greatest speed and least pain.
Climate change is dramatically affecting freshwater supplies, particularly in the developing world. The papers in this volume present a powerful case for and exploration of different freshwater adaptation strategies in the face of global climatic change. The volume centres on six detailed case studies, from India, China, Mexico, Brazil, the lower Danube basin and Tanzania, written by experienced local academics and practitioners. They assess autonomous adaptation in the freshwater sector, drawing out key lessons about what motivated these societies to change, which factors led to more successful adaptation, and how interventions may best be sustained. The volume also contains a global overview of the lessons derived from these experiences. It sheds light on two key theories: that vulnerability to climate change is best reduced by reducing poverty and promoting sustainable development first, or by reducing bio-physical risks from climate change. The publication also highlights the need to ensure that access to more precise climate change impact data is not used as an excuse to delay implementation of no regrets adaptation measures.
