Japanese calligraphy is the essence of traditional Japanese culture. Why not try your hand at this art?“Shodo,” or Japanese calligraphy, is artistically written words that are written in a style that is both artistic and emotionally driven. The art of calligraphy was handed down from China during the 6th and 7th centuries, at which time the Japanese learned how to make brushes, ink, and paper. Soon after its introduction, it became an indispensable skill for educated nobles and samurai, the leaders of Japan. Over time, the appreciation spread to the general public. Now, it can be found not only as works of art but also in things such as New Year's cards and other special occasion writings. This art form is now a part of Japanese culture.

WINNER OF THE 2019 CUNDILL HISTORY PRIZE SHORTLISTED FOR THE BAILLIE GIFFORD PRIZE FOR NON-FICTION 2019 SHORTLISTED FOR THE NAYEF AL-RODHAN PRIZE FOR GLOBAL UNDERSTANDING SHORTLISTED FOR DEUTSCHER PRIZE 'Revelatory and instructive... [a] beautifully written and accessible book' The Times For decades, the West has dismissed Maoism as an outdated historical and political phenomenon. Since the 1980s, China seems to have abandoned the utopian turmoil of Mao's revolution in favour of authoritarian capitalism. But Mao and his ideas remain central to the People's Republic and the legitimacy of its Communist government. With disagreements and conflicts between China and the West on the rise, the need to understand the political legacy of Mao is urgent and growing. The power and appeal of Maoism have extended far beyond China. Maoism was a crucial motor of the Cold War: it shaped the course of the Vietnam War (and the international youth rebellions that conflict triggered) and brought to power the murderous Khmer Rouge in Cambodia; it aided, and sometimes handed victory to, anti-colonial resistance movements in Africa; it inspired terrorism in Germany and Italy, and wars and insurgencies in Peru, India and Nepal, some of which are still with us today - more than forty years after the death of Mao. In this new history, Julia Lovell re-evaluates Maoism as both a Chinese and an international force, linking its evolution in China with its global legacy. It is a story that takes us from the tea plantations of north India to the sierras of the Andes, from Paris's fifth arrondissement to the fields of Tanzania, from the rice paddies of Cambodia to the terraces of Brixton. Starting with the birth of Mao's revolution in northwest China in the 1930s and concluding with its violent afterlives in South Asia and resurgence in the People's Republic today, this is a landmark history of global Maoism.

Internationally acclaimed healer and best-selling author Dr. Zhi Gang Sha provides a simple answer to the age-old question, "What is the real secret to healing?"Heal the soul first; healing of the mind and body will follow.Trained as a Western medical doctor in China and a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine in China and North America, Dr. Sha takes integrative medicine to a whole new and exciting era that goes beyond mind over matter, emphasizing soul over matter. Many people invoke the spiritual world to heal through prayer, but the results vary greatly. Dr. Sha believes the reason is that one must follow certain spiritual principles and laws to receive maximum healing benefits from the spiritual world. For example, Soul Wisdom argues that spiritual blockages occur in the heart chakra and are due to bad karma, the sum of total mistakes one has made in this and previous lifetimes.By following Dr. Sha's teachings, listeners can learn to clear up these blockages, particularly using such simple notions as unconditional love, forgiveness, and service. As Dr. Sha puts it, "Love melts all blockages and forgiveness brings peace." And, most importantly, listeners have the ability to heal themselves.In Soul Wisdom, Dr. Sha talks of being a mere servant; that the teachings in his works are secret treasures handed down from his revered teacher, Master and Dr. Zhi Chen Guo. He also discusses the Soul Light Era, a major transition in the way we communicate, from speech to soul.Fundamentally, Dr. Sha sees Soul Wisdom as a gift from the Divine, or higher power. Essentially, this is the an introductory guide for all of us to learn practical techniques to help open our minds, empower, heal, and transform every aspect of our lives. It truly is Dr. Sha's hope that Soul Wisdom will begin his teachings of Soul Language, in an effort to enlighten souls and create love, peace, and harmony for humanity, Mother Earth and the 1.

Why has the month of November had a special significance - a month in which I seem to have often experienced some particular, even notable, event, change, or development? Chalk it up to chance? Difficult to be sure about that.Sir Patrick Nairne led a remarkable life with a ringside view of history in the making. He fought with the Seaforth Highlanders in North Africa; worked in the post-war Admiralty and Ministry of Defence; organised the first EU Referendum in 1975; led the Department for Health and Social Security; contributed to the Falkland Islands Review Committee; monitored the consultation process in Hong Kong before the territory was handed back to China; and served as the first Chair of the Nuffield Council on bioethics.Patrick was one of the most notable British civil servants of the twentieth century, and in his later years, after being master of St Catherine's College, Oxford, began to write about his fascinating life and career.In The Coincidence of Novembers, Patrick's son - curator and writer Sandy Nairne - assembles his father's writings, including autobiographical pieces from his papers, into a volume which offers a snapshot of the range of his thinking and creativity: his first-hand experience of significant events in public affairs, his watercolours, and his meditations on a life spent working for the public good.

Driving the Saudis: A Chauffeur's Tale of the W...

After more than a decade of working in Hollywood, actress Jayne Amelia Larson found herself out of luck, out of work, and out of prospects. Without telling her friends or family, she took a job as a limousine driver, thinking that the work might be a good way to dig out of debt while meeting A-list celebrities and important movie moguls. When she got hired to drive for the Saudi royal family vacationing in Beverly Hills, Larson thought she’d been handed the golden ticket. She’d heard stories of the Saudis giving $20,000 tips and Rolex watches to their drivers. But when the family arrived at LAX with millions of dollars in cash, Larson realized that she might be in for the ride of her life.With awestruck humor and deep compassion, she describes her eye-opening adventures as the only female in a detail of over 40 assigned to drive a beautiful Saudi princess, her family, and their extensive entourage. To be a good chauffeur means to be a “fly on the wall”, to never speak unless spoken to, to never ask questions, to allow people to forget that you are there. The nature of the employment - Larson was on call 24 hours a day and 7 days a week - and the fact that she was the only female driver gave her an up close and personal view of one of the most closely guarded monarchies in the world, a culture of great intrigue and contradiction, and of unimaginable wealth. The Saudis traveled large: They brought furniture, Persian rugs, Limoges china, lustrous silver serving trays, and extraordinary coffees and teas from around the world. The family and their entourage stayed at several luxury hotels, occupying whole floors of each. Each day the royal women spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery and mega-shopping sprees on Rodeo Drive. Even the tea setup had its very own hotel room, while the servants were crammed together on rollaway beds in just a few small rooms down the hall.Larson witnessed plenty of drama: hundreds of hours of cosmeti 1.
