Threading My Prayer Rug Book Description :

ONE OF BOOKLIST'S TOP TEN RELIGION AND SPIRITUALITY BOOKS OF 2016 ONE OF BOOKLIST'S TOP TEN DIVERSE NONFICTION BOOKS OF 2017 Honorable Mention in the 2017 San Francisco Book Festival Awards, Spiritual Category This enthralling story of the making of an American is also a timely meditation on being Muslim in America today. Threading My Prayer Rug is a richly textured reflection on what it is to be a Muslim in America today. It is also the luminous story of many journeys: from Pakistan to the United States in an arranged marriage that becomes a love match lasting forty years; from secular Muslim in an Islamic society to devout Muslim in a society ignorant of Islam, and from liberal to conservative to American Muslim; from student to bride and mother; and from an immigrant intending to stay two years to an American citizen, business executive, grandmother, and tireless advocate for interfaith understanding. Beginning with a sweetly funny, moving account of her arranged marriage, the author undercuts stereotypes and offers the refreshing view of an American life through Muslim eyes. In chapters leavened with humor, hope, and insight, she recounts an immigrant’s daily struggles balancing assimilation with preserving heritage, overcoming religious barriers from within and distortions of Islam from without, and confronting issues of raising her children as Muslims—while they lobby for a Christmas tree! Sabeeha Rehman was doing interfaith work for Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the driving force behind the Muslim community center at Ground Zero, when the backlash began. She discusses what that experience revealed about American society.

Dancing the Labyrinth Book Description :

There is a scarcity of professional literature and research that focuses on women's spiritual development and experiences and how it may differ from that of men. For women, the spiritual is often inner focused, rather than transcendent; relational, rather than solitary; and interdependent, rather than autonomous. Using a relational approach, Dancing the Labyrinth integrates knowledge of women's psychological and spiritual development and the stories of a diverse group of women to examine how spirituality changes over the adult life course; the catalysts for said changes (e.g., the natural aging process or traumatic events); and feminist spirituality, which highlights the importance of relationships (to self, others, and God). While the authors focus on spirituality, they examine the experiences of women who express their spirituality within both traditional and non-traditional spiritual paths. The text also includes several chapters that highlight specific clinical interventions professionals can use to implement spirituality into their practice with women. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this book serves as a helpful resource for mental health practitioners, pastoral counselors, spiritual directors, and lay audiences interested in better understanding of the nuances of women's spiritual development and experiences.

Dancing with Breast Cancer Book Description :

One out of eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer. What many breast cancer patients don't open up about, read about, or discuss are the fearful moments, the angry moments, and the sometimes funny moments that women experience, beginning with that first scary doctor's appointment. Freezing-cold mammograms that flatten breasts like two fried eggs. Crushing loneliness. Nightmares about confronting mortality. But in Dancing with Breast Cancer, Janay Cosner gets real about her journey with the disease. Through a series of poems, Cosner opens up and shares her experience. Each poem is a snapshot of her odyssey. What does it mean to be a survivor, these poems ask. What does it mean to be a warrior? From diagnosis and surgery to chemotherapy and radiation to what is now her new normal, Cosner asks all her readers-patients, family members, friends, doctors, nurses-to join her in a raw and very real dance with cancer. My head high, I shout, I'm alive. My shoes start to dance again to the rhythm of life. Come dance with me. Praise for Dancing with Breast Cancer Every woman who has been diagnosed with breast cancer will relate to the emotions, the drudgery, and the multiple steps they take while "dancing" with cancer. As a medical oncologist, I have treated many women with breast cancer. However, I never knew how they really felt till I read Janay's poems. They speak to me of the patients' pain, loss, fear, and daily struggles as well the hope of a future when they will be able to dance again with their partners and not with cancer. Ms. Cosner bares her soul so that we (the healthcare providers) can be better prepared to care for the "person" and not just the "cancer." --Khalid Rehman, MD, FACP, medical oncologist and assistant professor of medicine at The New York Medical College What's most impressive about Janay Cosner's Dancing with Breast Cancer is her gutsy willingness to relive her ordeal from the first suspicious mammogram, through the traumas of treatment, to a w
