More About the Author

ZEMIRAH JAZWIERSKA, Ed.S., works as a licensed school psychologist in St. Vrain Valley, Colorado, where she has studied the impact of neurology, brain science, and executive functioning on child development and learning. She is also a certified Neurosculpting Facilitator, parenting coach, children's meditation facilitator, yoga practitioner and author of the forth coming book, Finding Shangri-Love: Living Your Love Story With You.

GLOWMUNDO CREATIONS
In 2006, Zemirah cofounded Glowmundo Creations, a company that created inspirational children's books to teach how thoughts are linked to perception and experiences of the external world. As part of the Glowmundo project, she collaborated with Dr. Joe Dispenza, chief artists of the Denver Children's Museum, Betsy Chase co-director of the film What the Bleep do We Know, and many other influential spiritual leaders. Recently, Zemirah's writing on how photography is related to spiritual experience was featured in Carl Studna's book Click, published by Hay House and Agape Media International in November, 2012.

KIDS RELAXATION
In 2008, Zemirah began her popular blog, kidsrelaxation.com, which offers resources to parents and educators, helping children to trust their inner lives. Her relaxation techniques for kids are known globally and her work is used in educational systems across the United States.

As part of Kids' Relaxation, LLC, she has recently released an ebook series to provide resources for parents, educators and children. Deep Breathing for Kids is the premiere book in the series. This ebook is overflowing with ideas to introduce and begin to practice deep breathing techniques with children.

DEEP BREATHING
Deep Breathing for Kids is full of highly engaging and captivating activities that will capture children's attention while introducing basic relaxation skills. The activities have been designed around themes that commonly hold a child's interest, from rockets and steam engines to lions and buzzing bees. It is an invaluable bedtime, car-time, or classroom tool. Each activity lasts around 1-5 minutes and is the perfect tool to bring rest and calm in the moment.

The activities range in complexity from simple one-minute breathing exercises to a combination of relaxation activities that link together several different breathing activities. The activities are designed to make relaxation practice fun and engaging.

Included in the ebook are visual aids for deep breathing. These are fabulously supportive when working with very young children or children with special needs. The visual aids are a perfect way to provide a visual prompt that it time to take a deep breath and can be used when a child is feeling stressed, strong emotion or overwhelm. When the body experiences a deep breath, it is an automatic signal to the autonomic nervous system to being to let go to return to a calm, restful state.

These deep breathing activities are a wonderful way for children to begin to explore learning basic relaxation and self-calming techniques and to begin practicing mindfulness. When practiced regularly, the activities found in this book can have a profound effect on children's mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing.

Deep breathing is the foundation of all relaxation practice. Turning inward to pause, listen to the natural breath, is the beginning of living life from the inside out. Starting with the breath, children bring their focus within themselves to see how they are feeling and, later on, when more advanced in relaxation practice, to see how they are thinking as well. Once children have developed the ability to turn their attention inside themselves, then they can begin to know when they best benefit from a using a relaxation tool or applying a technique. Over time, children develop greater and greater capacity for self-calming, increased self-awareness and overall enhanced sense of wellbeing and inner peace.

Introducing relaxation skills and techniques at an early age gives children skills for a lifetime. They are more adept at weathering the natural ups and downs of life, knowing how to care for and nurture themselves, returning to calm when they are not feeling well.

BENEFITS and POTENTIAL

This book will help your child learn to unwind, calm down, de-stress, and relax in a fun, playful way. Using the natural breath as the first signal to calm down the body and mind, Deep Breathing for Kids is a treasure chest of ideas to launch or deepen your relaxation practice with your child.

GUIDED IMAGERY FOR KIDS
Guided Imagery for Kids, the next book in the Kids' Relaxation series, is due out June 2014. This ebook will include recorded audio clips of the relaxation scripts. Each relaxation script takes children on an adventure within their imagination to address common childhood concerns such as worry, anxiety, stress, releasing negative thoughts. In addition, relaxation scripts are included to help children foster a sense of inner peace, security, feelings of being enough just as they are, connection with inherent beauty, and overall wellbeing. This ebook will include both the recorded audio of the relaxation script as well as the transcript so parents and educators can read it aloud in their own voice to their children.

PEBBLES IN THE POND
Also due out in June, 2014, Zemirah has authored a chapter in the book Pebbles in the Pond Wave 3, entitled, Living My Love Story... With Me. This transformational book and global movement is initiated and published by Christine Kloser, known as The Transformation Catalyst and features inspirational stories from authors around the world, including Lisa Nichols and SARK.

CHARISMATIC TEACHER
A charismatic teacher, Zemirah attributes her sheer joy for living to her long association with NY life coach Seran Wilkie and participation in Science of Mind training at Mile Hi Church in Lakewood, Colorado. Recently, she was certified as a Neurosculpting facilitator, a research-based, brain science meditation that supports individuals in reprogramming subconscious beliefs.

This is a beautiful book filled with lovely pictures and inspiring stories.

I was so engrossed with Studna's stories and observations that I read his entire book in two days! "Click" also contains samples of Studna's photographs.

Format: Hardcover
I was looking forward to loving this book, but it just didn't (you'll forgive the pun) "click" with me.

Physically it's a gorgeous book - the photos are rich and vibrant and it's printed on all glossy paper, which I find aesthetically pleasing.

The opening essay by Studna set me up for a book I really wanted to read - one about letting our most authentic selves see the light of day, and finding the beauty and wisdom in that. However after that great opening, the book was a collection of essays by various writers that I found quite uneven. I also thought that Studna's chapters weren't as compelling as his opening essay.

I also found it odd that the very first guest essay by Kenny Loggins - in which he mentions that he and Studna are good friends and they've done photo shoots together - wasn't accompanied by an image. In a book by a photographer that's about bringing inner beauty and love to the surface, I wanted there to be an image of each of the writers.

With all that said, I think there is value in the book for fans of Studna's work, as well as for people who are struggling with having their photo taken. As a casual reader who doesn't fully fit into either of those categories, though, I wasn't in the right place to make a heartfelt connection with this book.

"What a total blessing to have the amazing Carl Studna share his wisdom, his work and his powerful artistry with the world. After having such joy from my photo session with Carl (and big love from all who see his pictures) I'm so excited that he's sharing himself with the world. Prepare to be inspired and uplifted!" Love, Karen Russo

I read this book and it really called me to look at myself and the ways in which I show up in the world. Carl's gift, from my point of view, is that he invokes within each of us the question "are you ready to be authentic?". His beautiful writing style, the glorious photographs and lovely stories make this book a MUST for any library.

Format: Hardcover
It's been said the two biggest fears people have are of death and public speaking. There's a third one high on the list for many: having your picture taken! Professional photographer Carl Studna addresses this fear and much more in his engaging new book "Click! Choosing Love One Frame at a Time"

"I do hate getting my picture taken. It's so damned exhausting," writes singer Kenny Loggins in one chapter. "Click" contains short stories from the famous and not so famous expressing similar feelings about appearing in front of a camera. "I have always HATED having my picture taken," says musician Karen Drucker in another chapter. I liked reading these stories as they gave me comfort to know my own hesitancy of being photographed is a fear shared by many others.

The true value of "Click", though, is in Studna's wise words on why we feel uncomfortable being photographed. He relates how our feelings about getting our pictures taken are reflections of how we show up in life. "What would it be like to be in front of a camera and fully embody the present moment?" Studna writes. "Can you imagine how powerful an experience that would be? Every picture would be a true reflection of your multidimensional, magnificent self!"

Ever since Eckhardt Tolle's "A New Earth" was published there has been much written about "living in the present moment". Studna delivers a similar teaching in an innovative and entertaining way. He relates different stories of people he has photographed, followed by his thoughts on human nature. "I continually witness a large percentage of folks who find it painful viewing pictures of themselves," the author writes. "Their inner critic seems to be easily triggered along with all past conditioning related to self-image that needs to be healed.

A wonderful book that talks about much more than getting your photo taken. It is a vulnerable and intimate portrait of a way of living and being in the world that is loving, aware and present, compassionate, open and vulnerable and completely authentic. Some great wisdom for living a richer, fuller, more harmonious life.
Along with the stunning photographs of some well known subjects, the book also has some intimate and personal stories from a cross section of contributors that are rich and thought provoking.
The personal and intimate style makes the writing very accessible, almost as if I am engaged in a conversation with the writer. I could read this book over and over again and get a lot from it every time. It already has a place on my nightstand!

I recently purchased my copy of Click!: Choosing Love One Frame at a Time by Carl Studna. I already knew that Carl was an amazing photographer. But what I did not know about Carl was that he not only captures the physical energy of the people he photographs, but through his unique format helps us to see as well, the special gifts within each of them.

The narrative that accompanies the photographs, which includes writings from the those featured, is powerful and nurturing. Anyone who owns this book will be inspired!
