Reinaldo Alvarez’ New Book Enhances Children’s Power of Imagination












New York (PRWEB) May 01, 2014

According to Wall Street Journal (WSJ), “For years, imagination was thought of as a way for children to escape from reality, and once they reached a certain age, it was believed they would push fantasy aside and deal with the real world. But, increasingly, child-development experts are recognizing the importance of imagination and the role it plays in understanding reality.” Thus in this fascinating story offered to all kids out there, author Reinaldo Alvarez tells about two siblings who share the same goal — to make a difference as they try to better their lives and that of the people around them — all through their powerful imagination!

“Little Baby Imagination” is about a brother-and-sister team who attempts to better not just their lives, but also the lives of friends and family members with the power of imagination. Nemo and Niyah decide to change the past and the future by closing their eyes and imagining that things are the way they would like them to be. Nemo and Niyah encounter a grumpy and sad Mr. Niceman while riding the school bus. The duo decides not to accept this image of Mr. Niceman; through imagination they change the image and behavior of Mr. Niceman.

WSJ further asserts that imagination is necessary for learning about people and events humans do not directly experience, such as history or events on the other side of the world. For young kids, it allows them to ponder the future, such as what they want to do when they grow up. And so this story will surely propel a lot of imaginations as each and every child who read this will practice his or her very own “Little Baby Imagination.”

Laura Mayer Showcases Her Book, Unlocking the Invisible Child, and Shares Successful Transformational Tools at Rise 2013











Healing is in Your Hands


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2013

SoulDancingHealingPractice author and transformational healer Laura Mayer “shows up” at The Brave Heart Women’s Annual Rise Conference (http://www.BraveHeartWomen) to share her story of empowerment along with successful healing tools with those willing to relinquish childhood traumas and dramas that have prevented them from moving forward in the past. Go to http://www.dancingheartdancinghands.com for additional information.

Everything in Laura’s story is true. After suffering with a progressive, degenerative neurological disease for forty years/eighteen surgeries, Laura stepped out of the medical box and opened to the world of spirituality and alternative healing and witnessed complete transformation of mind, body and soul.

She emphasizes that it takes courage to love yourself enough to face traumas and truths long kept hidden, to step into life with grace and gratitude, and to show up, faith first, against all odds. It’s about having the courage and the determination to take back what is rightfully, preciously yours. Then you’ll be, as Laura Mayer is, unstoppable.

The book, Unlocking the Invisible Child: A Journey from Heartbreak to Bliss, which is available at: DancingHeartDancingHands.com offers the key to releasing old hurts, healing emotional wounds and embracing the child who hides within.

Christine Northrup, MD., New York Times best selling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and more, describes Mayer’s book as a “riveting account of what true healing is all about and must-reading for all who seek wholeness.”

“Unlocking the Invisible Child contains some universal truths which can help us all to achieve our potential to heal our wounds, nourish our lives and induce self healing of body, mind and spirit,” advises Bernie Siegel, MD author of Faith, Hope & Healing and A Book of Miracles.

From the medical community comes a wholehearted recommendation to “Read this book,” says Dr. Mark Belsky, Chief of Hand Surgery at Tufts-New England Medical Center, “and be prepared to challenge yourself to a life worth living.”

Laura comes straight from her heart. You can feel the voice of her spirit emanating from the depths of her soul. Her experiences come from a childhood where she felt unseen to her clinical career as an accomplished occupational therapist, as a patient who endured more than 18 painful reconstructive surgeries, to her role today as an intuitive healer and sought-after inspirational speaker.

People who have experienced her work agree that she is truly gifted and that her wisdom and compassion are integral components in transformational healing journeys.

“Her knowledge in energetic healing allows her to be the conductor of the symphony which is my mind, body and spirit. She orchestrates in such a way that will allow true harmony of my vibrational field, and clear my soul of negative karma.” – Maria Lisa Uy, MD., ABIHM

“After only one session with Laura, the work gave me the support I needed to literally change the direction and the quality of my life.” – Carol Fitzpatrick, seer, spiritual activist and new paradigm community-builder

“I’ve experienced Laura’s work and want to support her in getting others connected. She is gifted. Cut those cords from the past that entangle us!” – Helen Celestine, founder of Star Visions, Chappaqua, NY

“How can I ever thank you enough, Laura, for walking alongside me on my journey, for your genuine support and compassion, and for helping me to stay accountable to myself? You have been a lifesaver. – Catherine Sauberan, R.N., Tucson, AZ

Laura’s spirit and grace immediately touched my terrified heart. Her support, generosity, wisdom and humor guide me to a deeper knowing and a deeper trust in my ability to transcend from decades of abuse and neglect. – Linda Cooper, Falls Church, VA.

Laura Mayer, founder of SoulDancing Healing Practice, is a metaphysical healer, teacher, occupational therapist, inspirational speaker, author of Unlocking the Invisible Child: A Journey from Heartbreak to Bliss, and co-author in ‘Healing from Within’ part of the best selling series Adventures in Manifesting. Her website is: DancingHeartDancingHands.com. Laura is currently writing her second book, Step Up to the Plate: Heal for Real. Laura incorporates her intuitive prowess into a road map for anyone willing to take life into their own hands. Laura knows what healing looks like and how to heal for real.

The Book of Mormon Tickets: Cheap Concert Tickets Slashes Ticket Prices in New York, Austin, New Orleans, Omaha, Orlando, Tampa, Denver, Fort Lauderdale & San Francisco











Cheap Concert Tickets Slashes Pricing on all The Book of Mormon tickets for 2013-2014

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 08, 2013

Cheap Concert Tickets has an impressive inventory of discount tickets for The Book of Mormon available for sale. This award winning production began a traveling tour last August. Residents of cities fortunate enough to host this phenomenal production should reserve their seats as soon as possible. This popular secondary ticket exchange is extending their exclusive customer appreciation promo code MORMON for special savings on any ticket order.

The Book of Mormon originally opened at O’Neill Theatre in New York City on March 24, 2011. The Book of Mormon is a unique musical directed by two brilliant directors named Parker and Casey Nicholaw who took every aspect of the Broadway production very seriously. From the selection of cast to the composition of the music, every small detail ended up being worked on until it was right. The book of Mormon describes the story of two missionaries who stumble upon an Ugandan village. The finest quality of the musical is the unusual way in which three distinct topics, Religion, AIDs and The Lion King have been brought together. The mockery of these topics enables the musical to offer plenty of laughter to spectators. The directors wanted “The Book of Mormon” to put forward some cynical and at the same time some hopeful material that could have a long lasting impact on the audience.

“The book of Mormon,” like other Broadway musicals, has attracted a large amount media attention and coverage. Nonetheless, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints issued this statement: “The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening, but The Book of Mormon as a volume of scripture will change people’s lives forever by bringing them closer to Christ.”

One critic, Charles McNulty, has given varied remarks about the musical. According to him, the boldness and audacity that this musical portrays can only be expected from the maker of “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.” Despite the newness of musical compositions and storyline, the musical still sometimes gives a feel of old-fashioned and familiar comedy that you have been used to since your childhood. Several newspapers and magazines have honored the production by describing in words like “pleasure-giving” and “humorous.” Ben Brantley who is a highly respected theatre reviewer had these words about the production, “And for combining polish, enthusiasm and individuality, the ensemble is the best in a musical since Susan Stroman’s team for “The Producers.”” A Hollywood reporter said that after attending this Broadway musical, you have the opportunity to serve your inner soul with the original and fresh music. The sweetness of the show is what makes it distinct and apart from other musicals.

“The Book of Mormon” is presented in more of a classical mode. The unique aspect of this play is that it matches the fantasies of The Lion King, idealization of religion and spiteful reality. Though several people rose their eyebrows over the musical’s attempt to scoff at religion, numerous patrons have praised the true boldness featured throughout the Broadway show. The enjoyable music was written by several talented names including Parker, Stone, and Scatological. According to Parker when you try to present the attitudes of society, it becomes very difficult to convince religious devotees. They leave no stone unturned to give you reasons of warlord’s threatening warning to the women of the village.

The sets and complete stage interior turned out to be phenomenal after long hours of exertion and hard work. This musical is fun to watch, despite all the controversies that it has given birth to. The appearance of actors and actresses is also stunning as they seem to be well trained for their role in this musical. The costumes have been designed to match the bold theme of the musical and they also enhance the interest of the audience in the story of the show.

Advertising Professional Chronicles Her Travels Around The World In New Book “Black Girl, Will Travel: Wheels Up”










New York, NY (PRWEB) October 15, 2013

E.N. Smith announces the launch of her new book “Black Girl, Will Travel: Wheels Up” available on Amazon.com, a book for women who have considered travel when the cubicle isn’t enough.

E. N. Smith had worked in advertising for fourteen years before the grind finally wore her down. Burned out and unhappy, she chose the only sensible thing to do: she quit her job and moved to China. But what she thought was a trip to “shake things up” turned out to be a journey with both eye-opening and humorous results.

An exploration of culture, communication, and the human ability to transcend difference, Smith’s debut offers a funny and frank look at the width and breadth of the human experience. Her desire to capture the happenings of her travels began as a blog that soon morphed into something much, much more. Her book transcends definitions such as travelogue and guidebook, capturing her globetrotting adventure of self-expression and self-discovery with a rare combination of intimacy and vision.

A master class in self-deprecation and finding the humor in every situation, Smith’s debut is an honest account of a journey that doesn’t end conveniently yet still manages to encourage you to take chances that challenge your view of yourself and your place in the world. It examines that age-old expression, “Wherever you go—there you are,” with candor, precision, and bracing honesty. Sharp, insightful, and full of wit, Black Girl, Will Travel: Wheels Up… illuminates a fascinating metamorphosis that reminds us all that there is no greater gift than life—and our selves.

E. N. Smith currently resides in New York where she has her own consulting business and continues to travel at every opportunity.

SuperbTicketsOnline.com Announces Sales of Book of Mormon Tickets at the Historic Shea’s Performing Arts Center in Buffalo, New York











Concert, Sports, & Theater tickets


Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) January 09, 2013

Shows have been playing on the stage at Shea’s Performing Arts Center in Buffalo, New York, since 1926, and while the most recent Broadway sensation is getting theater fans in that town to line up for Book of Mormon tickets, SuperbTicketsOnline.com has announced tickets on sale for all performances.

The year 1926 was centered in the middle of the vaudeville craze, and when the theater first opened, the 4500 seats were designed to hold an audience waiting to see short films as well as programs of live entertainment. In those early days, films were often part of a complete vaudeville evening rather than standing on their own, and when Shea’s Theater opened, musician Cab Calloway and his orchestra was on the opening bill. Because of its tremendous size, the structure took an entire year to build during which time many papers critiqued the cavernous auditorium, saying it would never make it in Buffalo. Shea’s Theater, however, soon boasted great success, and its name became synonymous with great performances in Buffalo.

Through the years, the theater changed as the entertainment industry changed. Films soon became an evening’s entertainment on their own, and as time went on, there wasn’t a big need for huge houses like Shea’s Theater. Many feared it would be torn down, and they lobbied to get the building on the National Register of Historic Places. With an interior designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany, it was easy to see the value of saving the historic theater. To keep the doors open, the stage was renovated to allow Broadway productions to come through its doors, and the new purpose proved to be incredibly popular with the city. Since the 1970s, Shea’s has housed the best the Great White Way has to offer, so Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s musical about the crazy adventures of Mormon missionaries has found the perfect place to play in Buffalo.

SuperbTicketsOnline.com has stocked Book of Mormon tickets for the entire run of the show in the Buffalo area. For those in other parts of the nation, their selection of guaranteed authentic seats to other national tours include Wicked tickets and Les Miserables tickets.

Practical Holiday Gift: Second Edition of “From Graduation To Corporation” Career Advice Book by Author/Speaker Andy Teach











Author/Speaker Andy Teach


(PRWEB) December 04, 2012

The 2012 holiday season season is upon us and while many people are thinking about buying traditional holiday gifts, the career advice book “From Graduation To Corporation” is a practical holiday gift that gives job candidates and employees career advice that can be utilized for years to come.

“From Graduation To Corporation,” which is available in paperback, Kindle, and Nook (amazon.com link) (barnesandnoble.com link), is written for members of the Millennial generation/Generation Y, especially those in the 18-34 year-old age range.

“Younger job candidates need to acquire a new mindset that will prepare them to not only enter the workforce, but to excel in it,” according to Andy Teach (http://www.andyteach.com), a 30-year corporate veteran and former Hollywood studio executive.

“Looking for a full-time job IS a full-time job and job candidates should treat it as such. Once that job is found, the next challenge is to implement business etiquette and professionalism tips that will help the candidate stand out from their peers.”

Teach uses personal stories from his experience climbing the corporate ladder to prepare recent graduates. He covers such topics as good vs. bad résumés, job search websites, job interviewing, dealing with difficult bosses and co-workers, social and professional networking websites, dress codes, staying organized, office romance, networking, standing up to the boss, how to ask for promotions and raises, and how to overcome the generation gap in the workplace. He lists 73 “Corporate Commandments,” including: be an initiator, accept constructive criticism, embrace change, maintain a positive attitude and a sense of humor, willingly work overtime, return phone calls and e-mails promptly, and remember that one of your main jobs is to make the boss’s job easier.

“In recent years, I noticed how some Millennials had a different attitude toward work that resulted in generational conflicts with their supervisors, and I wanted to write a book that would help them manage the generation gap better as well as help their bosses manage them better,” Teach explains.

Teach’s book has received critical acclaim from book reviewers, media and business professionals, and college students/professors:

“I have coached thousands of people on building their careers and I heartily recommend this book to anyone graduating from college or starting out in a new profession.”-Libby Gill, Executive Coach and Author of YOU UNSTUCK

“I recommend this book as a ‘must read’ for college graduates as well as those who have been climbing the rungs of the ladder to success but not yet made it to the top.”-book reviewer Bettie Corbin Tucker of bookreviewers.org

A Stanford University senior says, “Andy Teach’s book provides deep insight into the inner workings of office life. Filled with humor and engaging anecdotes, this book provides a practical guide for any college student nervous about entering the corporate world. I would highly recommend this book as a resource to students who want to succeed in their future careers.”

A Merrill Lynch Financial Advisor declares: “Following the advice in this book at the start of your career will give you a ‘leg up’ on your competition and co-workers.”

Teach says: “In today’s tough economic climate, two of the most important things for young people are obtaining a job and keeping a job. Finding ways to avoid conflict with bosses and older co-workers is key to staying employed when the economy forces bosses to lay someone off.”

From Graduation to Corporation: ISBN-13: 978-1438930633

About Author Andy Teach

Teach graduated from Rutgers College with B.A. degrees in Business Administration and Human Communications. He worked for two New York City advertising agencies and then worked at a major Hollywood studio in the research department for over 20 years, earning six promotions: from research clerk to Vice-President of Network & Cable Research.

Teach has appeared as a guest and commentator on several radio programs and was recently quoted in several Forbes articles. He has lectured at over 50 universities and has given presentations to companies and organizations such as American Express, the CPA/Law Society of Ventura County, and the National Society of Hispanic MBAs.

World Rainbow Hotels Launch Website to Help LGBT Customers Find and Book Genuinely Gay and Lesbian-Welcoming Hotels











London, UK (PRWEB) August 06, 2012

World Rainbow Hotels (WRH), the gay & lesbian travel organization which made the headlines a year and a half ago as the first ever supplier of gay-friendly hotels on the GDS, launched a new website on August 1st, 2012, allowing LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) consumers to find and book genuinely gay and lesbian-welcoming hotels.

Since its creation in January 2011, World Rainbow Hotels – now boasting partnership with 175 hotel brands including high-profile names such as Kimpton, Morgans, Design Hotels, Joie de Vivre, Thompson Hotels, Rocco Forte, Orient Express, Four Seasons, Fairmont, Raffles and Swissôtel to name but a few – has endeavoured to set a new standard regarding the oft-misused concept of “gay-friendliness”.

Nicolas Wijnants, World Rainbow Hotels’ brand director, said:

“Too often hoteliers claim their establishment is “gay-friendly” but then fail to deliver on their promise. Gay and lesbian consumers want more than a rainbow flag in the window, they want to feel genuinely welcome as gay and lesbian individuals and they want to know that the hotel’s staff understands their travel concerns. World Rainbow Hotels’ mission is to give hoteliers all the right tools to make sure gay and lesbian guests are pleased with their stay.”

The online reservation portal selected more than 850 three to five-star properties in 129 global destinations through a rigorous set of screening criteria, including their current involvement with the LGBT community, compliance with non-discrimination policies and same sex benefits for their staff.

Member hotels are encouraged to undergo LGBT welcoming training and required to put together their own information guide about their local gay and lesbian scene.

These guides, called Out & About, provide information such as the destination’s best gay-friendly restaurants, the best gay or lesbian clubs and bars as well as special events. This information is visible online on the hotel’s profile and available to WRH guests at the hotel’s concierge.

According to Mr. Wijnants, all these elements contribute to a more pleasurable hotel experience for gay & lesbian travellers:

“Gay-friendly means that from the moment our guests make a reservation to the time they check out, they can just relax. They won’t be placed in the awkward situation of having to ask for a double bed instead of twin beds and they won’t have to think twice about requesting room service when they are in bed with their lover. Guests won’t be pressured to explain anything or justify anything or “come out” to the hotel staff, it’s already taken care of. Going to a World Rainbow Hotel is like going to a LGBT embassy, where guests can feel safe and welcome.”

The company’s portfolio offers accommodation for every wallet, as it ranges from luxury hotels perfect for a honeymoon to “budget chic” hotels for the more cost-conscious traveller. Besides the many renowned international chains, World Rainbow Hotels also feature many award-winning boutique hotels, apartment-hotels and resorts.

The World Rainbow Hotels website offers the latest updates on the top gay and lesbian events worldwide as well as valuable information on the social attitudes regarding homosexuality for each of the destinations featured on the site.

Mark Lewis, World Rainbow Hotels’ managing director, said:

“Whilst our website only lists hotels in places where attitudes to LGBT travelers are friendly overall, not all countries have changed their laws in line with what is socially acceptable. Therefore, having up-to-date information is key to avoid any unsavory experiences. Our goal is to provide our customers not only with the best gay-friendly hotel, but also with all the relevant tools to ensure their stay is as pleasant as possible.”

As the first and only gay and lesbian travel organization to be using the travel industry’s own communication network (known as the Global Distribution System or GDS), World Rainbow Hotels can offer customers fast and secure transactions as well as the hotels’ best available rates at all times.

This makes World Rainbow Hotels a pioneer, allowing major international hotel brands to reach out to this increasingly relevant market segment for the first time.

The launch of World Rainbow Hotels’ consumer website has been met with industry-wide praise:

“We’re very pleased to be a partner of World Rainbow Hotels. Each of our member hotels are ambassadors of their neighbourhood and strive to provide each guest with individually tailored, culturally-immersive experiences, both within and outside the property. The Design Hotels™ community is made up of free-spirited globetrotters from a broad range of backgrounds and preferences looking for meaningful journeys. Our carefully curated portfolio of 230 hotels worldwide are the perfect gateway to the local scene no matter where you are.”

Arno Schwalie, VP Business Development & Corporate Strategy, Design Hotels™.

“Fairmont Raffles and Swissôtel Hotels and Resorts are thrilled to be partnering with WRH. We are very proud to have met the strict set of criteria set forth by WRH and are now able to welcome their clients at our participating locations worldwide.

“Kimpton Hotels is committed to creating a culture that reflects the diversity of our hotel and restaurant guests. With that goal in mind, several of our hotels have partnered with WRH to show support of understanding, accepting, and celebrating differences among people. That includes different personalities, lifestyles, work styles, education and experience. We also welcome and embrace people of all races, ethnicities, ages, religions, physical abilities, sexual identities, gender identities and genders. Our commitment to our internal clients (employees) mirrors our commitment to our guests from all backgrounds.”

Yvonne Ruppert-Gordon, Director of National Accounts, Kimpton Hotels & Resorts

“We’re excited about our new partnership with World Rainbow Hotels, which perfectly complements IGLTA’s efforts to work with businesses around the globe that truly welcome gay travellers. Creating a hotel booking process that is more in tune with our community’s needs can only lead to a better LGBT travel experience overall.”

John Tanzella, President/CEO, IGLTA
