Love Made Of Heart ®
2022 July 31 California                  

Dear Readers,

I wish you and everyone around you – wellness, kindness, happiness.

I celebrate these two women -

Ms. Maria Kawah Leung and Ms. Goldie Hawn

 

Maria Kawah Leung is the author of a delightfully illustrated children’s book about a serious subject matter – domestic violence.   https://mariakawah.com/

LITTLE HEROES OF BAY STREET:  And How They Stay Strong In An Unhappy Home

(illustrators:  Maria Kawah Leung, Sandra Elyse Chavez, Maren Sleire Aasgaard)

This book is endorsed by Hannah Yeoh who is a Member of Parliament in Malaysia.

The main characters in LITTLE HEROES OF BAY STREET are Mia (a little girl) and her Happy Dog (who is much much more than a stuffed animal). Happy Dog is Mia’s best friend and confidant.

Maria Kawah Leung says:

“I was born in Hong Kong but my family moved to San Francisco when I was almost two years old. I have happily been a teacher of young children for over 25 years and have taught in the USA (California and Massachusetts), China and Malaysia.

“My most rewarding experiences in life were working with children in pediatric wards, studying Chinese in Beijing, China and studying Spanish in Bogota, Colombia.

“I have also traveled to about 30 countries and all the continents except Antarctica. I have always enjoyed writing. Creating this book to help children feel they are not alone has been a life-long goal.

“Empowering children to overcome obstacles is my passion. This is why I wrote the children’s book Little Heroes of Bay Street and How They Stay Strong in an Unhappy Home.”

Ms. Leung adds: “I’m hoping that through my book… that every teacher would get a copy… and school counselors… nurses… so that they can be aware, and, look out for signs, and reach out to these children.”

Maria’s book is available in English, Chinese, Spanish and Bahasa Malaysia

Teresa Jade LeYung here …

As I watch Ms. Goldie Hawn’s keynote speech at Teachers College, Columbia University …  I think about Ms. Maria Kawah Leung as teacher, author,  children’s advocate.


Teachers College – Columbia University – Academic Festival Opening Ceremony Keynote Address: Goldie Hawn on Why Mindfulness in School Matters

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rh5-Pwj9T8E  39 minutes

Ms. Hawn’s foundation is MindUP  https://mindup.org/

 

“Why aren’t we teaching kids about their brain?”  When the teacher says “Pay attention.”… how can children know what that means when they don’t know about their brains? “The brain has plasticity.” “What the amygdala is.”  “Nobody knows what the kids are feeling.  Kids and silent stress.”

Through MindUp … kids learn how to practice kindness, what being mindful is.”

Based firmly in neuroscience, MindUP teaches the skills and knowledge children need to regulate their stress and emotion, form positive relationships, and act with kindness and compassion.

MindUP was created in response to the global epidemic of:

  • childhood aggression

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • suicide

Ms. Hawn’s book -  10 MINDFUL MINUTES: Giving Our Children–and Ourselves–the Social and Emotional Skills to Reduce Stress and Anxiety for Healthier, Happy Lives (paperback) – by Goldie Hawn (Author), Wendy Holden (Author), Daniel J. Siegel MD (Foreward)

 

I celebrate Ms. Maria Kawah Leung and LITTLE HEROES OF BAY STREET,  Ms. Goldie Hawn and MindUP, and children all over the world!

2021 August 19, 16:38;   October 19, 22:22;  October 20, 16:23-21:23 California

Dear Reader,

I send you wishes of wellness, lasting wellness of deep peace.  Over the decades, I have been fortunate to gain knowledge and skills from generous folks who shared secrets to the “good” life.

If you are a friend reading this blog post … I thank you for your emails, physical mail, text messages, voicemails, well wishes, lovely thoughts and prayers.

So many books have enriched my life … 3 books have been especially healing for me these past months as I continue to learn how to move away from persistent unpleasant sensations (including pain signals) that began last year after an episode of Shingles.

Therefore, as a fellow sojourner during this world pandemic …  I am dreaming of Paris, retraining Beautiful Brain, understanding this neurological disorder, reading and getting inspired by Elisabeth Tova Bailey’s snail, Diane LeBow’s dancing, and Gilles Marin’s Taoist approach to healing.

Book by Elisabeth Tova Bailey

The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating

ELISABETH TOVA BAILEY’s natural history/memoir, The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating, recounts her year-long observations of a wild Maine woodland snail. The true story of her interspecies relationship is reaching a general international audience of both genders and all ages and is finding special homes in the fields of literature, natural history, medical humanities, and education.

https://www.elisabethtovabailey.net  Elisabeth Tova Bailey tells the inspiring and intimate story of her year-long encounter with a Neohelix albolabris—a common forest snail. While an illness keeps her bedridden, Bailey watches as the snail takes up residence on her nightstand. Intrigued by its molluscan anatomy, cryptic defenses, clear decision making ability, hydraulic locomotion, and mysterious courtship activities, Bailey becomes an astute and amused observer. The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating is a remarkable journey of survival and resilience, showing us how a small part of the natural world illuminates our own human existence.

Thank you, dear Luisa Adams, author of  the exquisite memoir Woven of Water https://www.rp-author.com/Adams/, for gifting me Ms. Bailey’s book.

To Everyone Who Has Helped Me or Someone I Care About,

Acts of kindness come in countless forms, oftentimes given anonymously.

I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart.

This blog post containing images of Parc Monceau, 8th arrondissement, Paris, France is to Thank You, the benevolent angels in all realms.

Today, October 28, 2019, my plan was to walk through Parc Monceau (enter at the grand gate at Avenue Van Dyck, exit at the grand gate at Avenue Velasquez). Well, Beauty distracted me. Twenty-eight minutes later, I realized I had walked a circle.

That is what I wish for you – may Beauty be with you always – may She lead you to where you need to go or come back to.

Please share with friends – I recommend these 2 classes on Saturday August 25, 2018  Mechanics’ Institute Library in San Francisco, California

Create a winning website/blog for yourself with expert help from Linda Lee Askmepc

http://www.askmepc-webdesign.com/

Morning class:  https://www.milibrary.org/events/author-website-building-site-works-aug-25-2018 
Afternoon class: https://www.milibrary.org/events/wordpress-bootcamp-creating-wordpress-website-and-how-use-it-aug-25-2018

Expert Linda Lee says:

The morning class is a round table discussion where we discuss general questions such as; domain names, hosting, websites, and what you need to get started.

What is the difference between all these things? What should they cost me? What domain names should I buy and where?

Why do I need all of this to have a website?

This is a beneficial few hours for many people. You can ask me any questions you like.

I have a presentation and hand-out with all the important facts you need to know.

It is common for people to not understand exactly how this all works. It can be quite confusing.

This is a warm and informative environment to learn. There are no silly questions here.

This class is very affordable! Click the link below to sign up and read more details if you are interested.

https://www.milibrary.org/events/author-website-building-site-works-aug-25-2018

The afternoon class is an actual hands-on WordPress (WP) training class.

Once you sign up, I will be sending your own WP test site. This is your site to use for the class, and to practice on for 90 days.

This also includes some short videos, I will send you, showing you how to login and give you a bit of the basics, before the class.

Just some of what we will be covering will include: blogging, writing a good search engine optimized article, what is search engine optimization and why do you need it? What is the difference between a page and a post? Do I have to blog?

You will learn how to correctly add images and name them. All the parts of the dashboard and back end.

Even if you have been using your website, this is a great place to learn more and refresh what you already know.

After each section of the hands on presentation, we have a Q&A.

At the end of the training, Mary E. Knippel, a writing coach, former journalist and editor, will discuss with you:

writing posts, blogging, how to stay motivated, how to tap into your creative side and ongoing ideas for your website.

Sometimes we just run out of steam, and Mary will help you dig into that creative mind we all have.

To sign up for the hands on afternoon class and read more details, please click the link below.

https://www.milibrary.org/events/wordpress-bootcamp-creating-wordpress-website-and-how-use-it-aug-25-2018

Thank you,
Linda Lee

I am Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan who teaches my clients (writers, artists) how to reach out, not stress out, before and after publication — identify themes in their intellectual properties and create scripts for pitches, query letters, press releases, talking-points, one-minute videos, photo slideshows, and the all-mighty blog. Please visit http://WritingCoachTeresa.com  and http://LoveMadeOfHeart.com/blog for resources.

Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days: Attract Agents, Editors, Publishers, Readers, and Media Attention NOW – print edition available at Laurel Book Store http://www.laurelbookstore.com in Oakland, CA and on Amazon – print edition and Kindle edition!

I am Teresa LeYung-Ryan, author of the mother-daughter novel Love Made of Heart and the “Talking to My Dead Mom Monologues” series.  I use my literary works to encourage adult children of mentally ill parents to speak openly about the stigmas and find resources for their loved ones and for themselves.

Author & Playwright Teresa LeYung-Ryan Takes the BringChange2Mind Pledge to Stand Up Against the Stigma of Mental Illness

One in four families are affected by mental illness.

I pledge to follow the Bring Change 2 Mind principles.

http://bringchange2mind.org/get-involved/take-the-pledge/

Bring Change 2 Mind Principles

- I realize that mental illness is treatable and manageable.
- I understand that everyone is a valued person and deserves to be treated with respect.
- I will refrain from blame, shame, secrecy, social exclusion, stereotypes or discrimination.
- I will change the language I use when I talk about mental health and I will educate those who use stigmatizing language. I know that words matter.
- I will educate myself about the symptoms of mental illness and any side effects that may occur from treatment plans.
- I will use appropriate resources to work towards the stability of a loved one or myself.
- If I am feeling suicidal, I will reach out for help. If I know someone is experiencing suicidal thoughts, I will take it seriously and make every effort to ensure they get help.
- I will reduce stigma in myself and in others by being open about living with mental illness, naming it out loud and raising people’s awareness.
- I will help change the way people view mental health. I will make a difference.

If you or someone you know needs immediate help, please call the Crisis Hotline: 800.273.TALK (8255)

In San Mateo, California, Stamp Out Stigma Director Carmen Lee says:

“Welcome to Stamp Out Stigma, a community advocacy and educational outreach program dedicated to eradicating the stigma associated with mental illness. Stamp Out Stigma is unique in its anti-stigma approach, by creating a forum in which individuals with mental illness share their personal experiences with the community at large.”  http://www.stampoutstigma.net


I wish everyone a world of love made of heart.

Sincerely,

Teresa LeYung-Ryan
