The holidays are approaching fast. Have you finished your shopping? I know it can be tough to find the perfect gifts for all of the loved ones on your holiday shopping list. But don’t worry.

This year, why not consider giving the gift of practical knowledge or the power of a good story with these four books from Dudley Court Press? They are available as both paperbacks and Kindle ebooks.

Yoga for Pain Relief: A New Approach to an Ancient Practice

Dudley Court Press - Yoga for Pain Relief - Lee Albert
If you know someone who suffers from muscular pain, or who just enjoys practicing yoga, Yoga for Pain Relief can be a great gift. Written by physical therapist Lee Albert NMT, the book shows readers how to practice yoga safely, design a yoga practice aimed at reducing muscular pain and take charge of their health. The book is for both yoga beginners and experienced practitioners alike.

Softening the Grief: What to Say and Do to Comfort a Bereaved Mother

Softening the Grief
The holidays can be a joyous time, but they can also be a painful time, especially for those who have lost a child or a loved one. If you know someone who is grieving, or someone who is a family member or a friend of someone who is grieving, then the book Softening the Grief may be a very welcome gift at this sensitive time.

Softening the Grief, written by Joan E. Markwell, helps readers to understand the emotional challenges faced by a grieving person and what those around them can say and do to bring comfort rather than pain. Because sometimes a little of the right knowledge can go a long way.

Mountain Majesty: The History of CODEP Haiti – Where Sustainable Agricultural Development Works

Dudley Court Press - Mountain Majesty - John V. Winings
Around the holidays, many people think about doing good, but is it possible to make a lasting difference in the world? Mountain Majesty: Volume 1 is the true story of one organization’s desire to help the people of Haiti’s Cormier Valley, who suffered from poverty and environmental challenges, and how they brought a long-term sustainable agricultural development project to life.

Written by John Winings, Executive Director of The Haiti Fund, Inc., Mountain Majesty: Volume 1 recounts the project’s origins, problems and its ultimate successes for the local Haitian people. It’s a fascinating book.

Mountain Majesty: A History of CODEP Haiti Where Sustainable Agriculture Works, Volume II

Mountain Majesty: Volume 2

If you think that someone on your holiday list may enjoy Mountain Majesty: Volume 1, then I recommend bundling it together with Mountain Majesty: Volume 2.

The sequel takes a closer look at the CODEP project and at many of the people who made it possible, highlighting the inner workings and complexities of an organization that has had a profound effect on the people of Haiti’s Cormier Valley.

Does your loved one enjoy talking about books? Mountain Majesty: Volumes 1 and 2 provide a good invitation to a thoughtful discussion.
