This book is my personal story, my journey through life. I am writing it despite what I read somewhere that it’s not good to write about oneself. But how can I write about things I haven’t experienced firsthand? The most difficult thing that has happened to me in my life—divorce—also brought about the best things. I discovered my own lifestyle—the happiness lifestyle. Maybe all that is needed is a change of viewpoint and an understanding that if two people are not headed in the same direction, it might be time to part ways. Peacefully, lovingly, and with nothing but the best wishes for the other person. I am writing this story for those who are looking for happiness, searching for it themselves, or those trying to deal with their relationships. I am also writing it for myself. I am closing a chapter of my life, and I am assessing its worth. I will write about my experiences, wins and losses, and maybe through them you will realize what you want and don’t want in your life and those things that influence us in life. Sometimes it can be some small thing, and sometimes something more serious, that will be reflected in our subconscious. This negative information about ourselves then influences us on our journey through life and will trap us in certain models of behavior. My story is about searching for my own path. Despite being divorced, I am fully supportive of the family life, and that it is an arena of freedom. What do you think gives us freedom? For me personally, it is being able to speak the truth and have open communication. Thanks to these two things I am able to grow, and the same goes for the people that I am communicating with. We give each other an opportunity for change. If we are not communicating openly and are keeping our emotional wounds to ourselves, maybe we are destroying a prospective relationship. Yes, I know, you need two to tango. Where is the best place to start? With yourself. No one will teach you how to live a happy life. We learn from our parents. Without even knowing it, they are showing and teaching us models of behavior, whether they are negative or positive. But as children, we’re not able to recognize what these are, and we accept everything that we see and also what we feel. In January 2005, I laid hands on Virginia Satir’s book Conjoint Family Therapy. As early as 1970, Virginia Satir was describing how we could live freely within our families. Yes, we could, if we knew how to communicate truthfully and openly, without fear, without anger, and without hurt. My divorce mobilized all the inner power and skills I had that I was unaware of until then. It was a valuable part of my journey of finding myself! This path began sometime during this period. In the two years leading to my divorce, I felt as if I was buried alive. Do you know that feeling? We can all decide whether we want to live again and cherish every minute of life. I decided that I did. This book is comprised of three parts: part 1 is my very own story; part 2 talks about ways and methods that have helped me; part 3 allows space for creation of a happy life. It is an interactive e-book, so whichever way you choose, you will always find something new. After clicking on the green words, you will find more information on the topic. You can enter all your additional inquiries into Google. “Don’t believe a word I say.” Let the book inspire you. Examine and discover your lifestyle—the happiness lifestyle.

From the bestselling author of The Artist's Way, a revolutionary diet plan: Use art to take off the pounds! Over the course of the past twenty-five years, Julia Cameron has taught thousands of artists and aspiring artists how to unblock wellsprings of creativity. And time and again she has noticed an interesting thing: Often, in uncovering their creative selves her students also undergo a surprising physical transformation-invigorated by their work, they slim down. In The Writing Diet, Cameron illuminates the relationship between creativity and eating to reveal a crucial equation: creativity can block overeating. This inspiring weight-loss program, which can be used in conjunction with Cameron's groundbreaking book on the creative process, The Artist's Way, directs readers to count words instead of calories, to substitute their writing's "food for thought" for actual food. Using journaling to examine their relationship with food-and to ward off unhealthy overeating -readers will learn to treat food cravings as invitations to evaluate what they are truly craving in their emotional lives. The Writing Diet presents a brilliant plan for using one of the soul's deepest and most abiding appetites-the desire to be creative-to lose weight and keep it off forever. I'm a creativity expert, not a diet expert. So why am I writing a book about weight loss? Because I have accidentally stumbled upon a weight-loss secret that works. For twenty-five years I've taught creative unblocking, a twelve-week process based on my book The Artist's Way. From the front of the classroom I've seen lives transformed-and, to my astonishment, bodies transformed as well. It took me a while to recognize what was going on, but sure enough, students who began the course on the plump side ended up visibly leaner and more fit. What's going on here? I asked myself. Was it my imagination, or was there truly a "before" and an "after"? There was! -from The Writing Diet

Art Practice as Research, Second Edition continues to present a compelling argument that the creative and cultural inquiry undertaken by artists is a form of research. The text explores themes, practices, and contexts of artistic inquiry and positions them within the discourse of research. Sullivan argues that legitimate research goals can be achieved by choosing different methods than those offered by the social sciences. The common denominator in both approaches is the attention given to rigor and systematic inquiry. Artists emphasize the role of the imaginative intellect in creating, criticizing, and constructing knowledge that is not only new but also has the capacity to transform human understanding.

Art s Way Out

In taking the critique of inclusion and entry as a first step, Art s Way Out s discussion of art, politics and learning aims to delineate what an exit pedagogy would look like: where culture is neither seen as a benign form of inclusion nor as a hegemonic veil by which we are all subscribed to the system via popularized forms of artistic and cultural immediacy. An exit pedagogy as prefigured in what could be called art s way out through the implements of negative recognition qua impasse would not only avoid the all too facile symmetrical dualism between conservative and progressive, liberal and critical pedagogies, but also seek the continuous referral of such symmetries by setting them aside and look for a way out of the confined edifices of education and culture per se. An exit pedagogy seeks its way out by reasserting representation in the comedic, the jocular, and more effectively in the arts power of pausing, as that most effective way by which aesthetics comes to effect in its autonomist and radical essence. In this fluent, limpid, and scholarly work, Baldacchino examines, inter alia, the problem of empathy in relation to art as an event (or series of events), drawing upon a wide and rich range of sources to inform what in effect is his manifesto. With a profound understanding of its philosophical basis, Baldacchino unfolds his argument in an internally consistent and elegantly structured way. This is not a book to be dipped into, to do so would miss the development of Baldacchino s philosophical position; like an art work itself, Art s Way Out has coherent structure, and a complex, interrelation between form and content, reflecting an artist s concern for getting things right. Richard Hickman, Cambridge University Although art has a limitless capacity to take on myriad responsibilities, according to Baldacchino we also need to consider a way out because only then will we understand how art goes beyond the boundaries of possibility. As he explains, our way into reason also comes from an ability to move outside the limits that reasons sets . This is the exit pedagogy that he advocates. And here exit does not mean to leave, but rather to reach beyond, to extend and explore outside the borders we impose on learning, teaching, schooling and most forms of cultural agency. The need to embrace the capacity of art to cycle beyond the contingencies we impose on it also helps to clarify the limits of inclusive arguments for deploying art education for various individual, institutional, and socio-political ends: art as self expression, art as interdisciplinary method, art as culture industry, art as political culture, art as social justice and so on. This image invokes for me part of the legacy of Maxine Greene that Baldacchino revealed in his earlier text, Education Beyond Education (2009), when he explored her thesis of the social imagination, which is best, achieved when teaching becomes reaching. What Art s Way Out gives us is an exit strategy from the deadening tendency to ignore the enduring capacity of art to give life to learning, teaching and the very culture of our being. Graeme Sullivan, Penn State University This is the sixth book authored by John Baldacchino, the other most recent books being Education Beyond Education. Self and the Imaginary in Maxine Greene s Philosophy (2009) and Makings of the Sea: Journey, Doubt, and Nostalgia (2010). Currently Associate Dean at the School of Art & Design, University College Falmouth in England, he was full time member of faculty at Columbia University s Teachers College in New York, Gray s School of Art in Scotland and Warwick University in England.

Zuni artists of today uphold the centuries-old tradition that art is integral to both their secular lives and to their sacred rituals. Too few books have given outsiders a grasp and understanding of this special feature of Zuni art. This one, bringing knowledge and insights gained in two decades of field research in New Mexico, attempts to enter the special world of the Zunis by focusing on two present-day artists--a potter and her son, who makes fetishes of carved stone. They create art in the age-old style, and as they describe their techniques and discuss their feelings about the pieces they make, they reveal the enduring relationship the Zuni Indians have nurtured in their art, their religion, and their values. An outsider's up-close encounter with this exceptional culture can stir up passions, debates, and mysteries. The author's exploration put him in a maelstrom of family and community disputes that exposed the sensitive nature of art to the Zunis. Only in the recent past did Zuni artisans begin adapting their ancestral designs and forms into new works sold to the public. Such art is designated as "contemporary traditional" to distinguish it from historical artifacts. These modern creations have brought new appreciators to primeval Zuni culture. This book places modern work within the context of Pueblo folk art from prehistoric times to the present. Vintage and contemporary photographs that are included show Zuni art and life as it developed. Readers are introduced here to ancient designs and techniques of making pottery and fetishes and to contemporary potters and fetish carvers who preserve the old ways today. Those who admire and collect Native American art will welcome this book, not only because it is one of the few available studies devoted entirely to the subject of Zuni art but also because it is an unusual and absorbing story of the intertwining of art, religion, and the community. Keith Cunningham, a professor of English and folklore at Northern Arizona University, is the author of The Oral Tradition of the American West and American Indians' Kitchen-Table Stories.
