ALAMOSA — CRHDC has helped more than 1,700 families build their homes in 30 different counties through its mutual Self-Help program, which allows new homebuyers to take an active role in the construction of their homes. In this program, participants contribute significant “sweat equity” towards the construction of their home, bringing down development costs and producing a more affordable home. Recently, CRHDC has been working with a new client, Vennessa Martinez. She is currently in the process of building a Self-Help home in the San Luis Valley.

Many meditators, yogis, and other spiritual practitioners will answer this question with a resounding yes. Critics – ranging from religious studies and management scholars to serious Buddhist practitioners – may disagree. Mindfulness meditation, which has grown exponentially in popularity in recent years, is commonly associated with a wide-ranging set of contemplative practices aimed at training oneself to pay “attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment and nonjudgmentally,” as defined by Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare, and Society. Early leaders in the mindfulness movement, many of whom came of age in the counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s, had a more activist bent; they hoped that mindf...

Rabbi Avraham Krishevsky lived in Betar Illit, Israel, where he was involved in the production of Tefillin. In this interview, he remembers a friend that he had in Crown Heights who spiraled into a life of drugs and other bad behavior. Unable to help him on his own, he succeeded in convincing his friend to write to the Rebbe. But the fellow had one condition: it couldn’t go through the Rebbe’s office; his letter could only be read by the Rebbe himself. (1980s) Let's block ads! (Why?) Source link

Any patient living with a chronic illness is familiar with the topic of self-care. It’s something that many of our medical team members, especially the allied healthcare professionals, talk to us about. But practicing self-care is not always as easy as it sounds.

The Nanaimo Theatre Group’s first play of the new year is Self Help, a 2004 farce by prolific Canadian playwright Norm Foster. The play follows Hal and Cindy Savage, a married couple of “second-rate actors … acting in third-rate theatres,” in the words of director Sheila Coultish, who though a series of events become rich and famous self-help gurus before their lives dissolve into farce. “I’ve done a variety of things from musicals, pantomimes to straight plays and I’ve done comedy but I’ve never actually tackled a farce, which is a bit different because a comedy usually has a credible storyline,” Coultish said. Coultish was moved to advocate for Self Help’s inclusion in the NTG 2018-19 season after watching a performance at th...

(Togo First) - The Self-Help Program of the US embassy in Togo is making new beneficiaries at the beginning of February. The scheme is granting a total of XOF11 million to support about 10 small community projects in the country. Self-Help is a community assistance program, launched in 1964, which aims to finance micro-development projects of local communities. The main selection criterion is self-handling. Indeed, once a project carrier benefits from the program, they become self-sufficient. Particular focus is on projects with the potential to generate income, create employment and produce marketable skills (sewing, livestock breeding, etc.). The maximum amount awarded for each project is $5,000. Ayi Renaud Dossavi Let's block ads!...
