SIMPLY IMPERFECT: REVISITING THE WABI-SABI HOUSE

Robyn Griggs Lawrence
Paperback

Price: $10.15

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $22.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Wabi-sabi is about appreciating the simple and letting go of the superficial – the perfect antidote for a society in recovery from a decades-long consumerist binge. In 2004 The Wabi-Sabi House introduced this ancient Japanese philosophy to North America. Simply Imperfect is a fully revised and updated edition of The Wabi-Sabi House, aimed at moving past our belief in life, liberty and the pursuit of stuff to finding beauty in austerity, serenity and authenticity.

Far more than home décor, wabi-sabi is a state of mind: living modestly in the moment, stripping away the unnecessary, finding satisfaction in everyday things. Simply Imperfect recounts wabi-sabi's rich history, tracing it from its Zen Buddhist roots through to the present day. This beautifully illustrated book reveals ways to introduce wabi-sabi into your home such as:

  • Clearing clutter and blocking noise
  • Integrating salvaged and recycled materials
  • Making and growing things yourself (or supporting local artisans who do)
  • Taking time and space for self-reflection

Wabi-sabi is everything that today's sleek, plastic, technology-saturated culture isn't. Simply Imperfect asks readers to see that mass-produced perfection is seductive but boring. This gentle book is for anyone who is overwhelmed by consumerism or whose focus has shifted from getting more to getting by.

Do you like fruit? What if I told you that your favorite fruit could be contributing to your growing waistline and putting you at risk for diabetes and heart disease? Did you know that what you eat can affect your energy, your memory, your mood, and even how you think? Certain foods can even make a child behave poorly and lose focus in school. What if I told you that many of the health symptoms that Americans are experiencing today could be remedied by a simple solution: Nature s Diet

Our distant ancestors depended solely on 'Nature's kitchen' for survival; today our diet is genetically engineered, man-made in a factory, and loaded with harmful chemicals. The result: An epidemic of illnesses like never before seen in human history.

Dr. Andrew Iverson wrote this book after seeing chronically ill patients every day in his own practice. Fascinatingly, he saw that when someone feeds their body the correct nutrition and detoxifies from chemical waste, they can have amazing improvements in their health. After witnessing this simple response over and over again, Dr. Iverson realized that he had to share with the rest of the world what he was doing with his own patients. He needed to reach out and TEACH people how to heal that were so desperately seeking to have their health back.

This book unlocks Nature's secret message in a 21-day nutritional guide on how to heal your body and stay healthy in order to have the optimal health you were intended. It is based on observing how plants and animals survive in nature and applying those simple principles to human health and healing.

By reading Nature's Diet you will gain another perspective on widely debated fad diets like protein based Atkins diet versus vegetarian diets. You will learn why your multi-vitamin is more of a drug than a nutrient and what the effect of hidden food allergies may be having on your system. You will also learn about the effects of the thousands of environmental chemicals, like heavy metals, you are exposed to each day and how you can cleanse and detoxify them from your body. Every page is loaded with insightful information and fun facts including who should or shouldn't take bio-identical hormones, what you are missing in your life for sounder sleep, and even how to achieve more gratifying sex in a completely natural way. Nature's Diet is your key to living simply, consciously, and is attainable by every person -- naturally.

The answers you've been seeking to heal your body and stay healthy have always been available to you. If you are ready to live free of poor health, Nature's Diet is giving you a simple plan.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $34.95. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

A leading light in the field of medicinal herb cultivation, The Chinese Medicinal Herb Farm is the first cultivation guide of its kind. It presents invaluable information for growers interested in producing high-quality, efficacious herbs in all climates of the United States, with the historical connectedness of ancient practitioners.

It has become increasingly important — especially as the market for herbal medicine continues to grow — that we transition to local and domestic medicinal cultivation. Increasingly there are concerns regarding to not only the quality but the purity of imported herbs, and wild herbs picked for medicinal purposes are ever more endangered both at home and abroad.

Author Peg Schafer, a longtime grower and teacher, guides readers with information on propagating, cultivating and harvesting Chinese herbs, and presents fascinating new scientific data that reveal the age-old wisdom of nature and the traditional systems of Chinese medicine. Through 79 detailed herb profiles — all tested and trialed on Schafer’s certified organic farm — Schafer offers easy-to-follow information, suitable for both growers and practitioners, for growing efficacious wild-simulated herbs. Also included is important information on species conservation, crop integration and how to avoid the introduction of invasive species. Sidebars on traditional medicinal uses for each herb and delicious recipes are also featured throughout.

Vegetable and community-supported agriculture (CSA) farmers will find this book of great interest for adding value-added crops to their repertoire. Beginner growers looking to incorporate medicinals into their gardens will find the book an invaluable guide to understanding where herbal medicine comes from. And for all readers, it will make eating-your-medicine more accessible than ever.
