The bad news is that no-one can 'give you' either emotional or spiritual intelligence. But the good news is that - because those intelligences are already lying dormant deep within you - you can learn how to harness these powers for yourself. Effectively you'll become your own guru - and once you've discovered how to tap into your hidden resources, you'll find yourself rapidly shortening the learning curve to both happiness and profits!
Written in an engaging style by former journalist Olivia Stefanino, Be Your Own Guru is intriguing, inspiring and above all, accessible.
Personal anecdotes and real-life case studies will be incorporated into an overall 'program' which will enable readers to be their own guru in less than two months!
The art market has been booming. Museum attendance is surging. More people than ever call themselves artists. Contemporary art has become a mass entertainment, a luxury good, a job description, and, for some, a kind of alternative religion.
In a series of beautifully paced narratives, Sarah Thornton investigates the drama of a Christie's auction, the workings in Takashi Murakami's studios, the elite at the Basel Art Fair, the eccentricities of Artforum magazine, the competition behind an important art prize, life in a notorious art-school seminar, and the wonderland of the Venice Biennale. She reveals the new dynamics of creativity, taste, status, money, and the search for meaning in life. A judicious and juicy account of the institutions that have the power to shape art history, based on hundreds of interviews with high-profile players, Thornton's entertaining ethnography will change the way you look at contemporary culture.
