The youngest of seven children, Rahman (born in the 1930s) was always fascinated by art. Her work focuses on her folk designs, and over the years she has re ned domestic kantha embroidery into a fine art, with her pieces in museums worldwide. Today, no longer able to draw, Rahman wants other artists to step forward and work with kantha. VERDICT An inspirational tale of one woman’s artistic journey and how she ultimately helped hundreds if not thousands of women to thrive. Will appeal to those interested in art, design, and culture.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003e– Library Journal, Denise A. Garofalo Mount Saint Mary Coll.

Rahman; her storytelling designs in kantha, a traditional craft of embroidery; and how she taught poverty-stricken women in Bangladesh to embroider her designs into works of art \u003cspan\u003efor profit. The youngest of seven children, Rahman (born in the 1930s) was always fascinated by art. Her work focuses on her folk designs, and over the years she has re ned domestic kantha embroidery into a fine art, with her pieces in museums worldwide. Today, no longer able to draw, Rahman wants other artists to step forward and work with kantha. VERDICT An inspirational tale of one woman’s artistic journey and how she ultimately helped hundreds if not thousands of women to thrive. Will appeal to those interested in art, design, and culture.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003e– Library Journal, Denise A. Garofalo Mount Saint Mary Coll.

Phuntsok matured and became deeply concerned with the welfare of other lost children. Leaving the temple life, he founded the Jhamtse Gatsai Children's Home in the Himalayan foothills of northern India, a commune-like haven that emphasizes mutual support and compassion—as opposed to professional counselors and career social workers. Five-year-old Tashi Drolma is a spirited girl troublemaker, a newcomer to the community, although much of the real drama here lies instead in the heartache of desperate families whose surplus kids, unlike Tashi, do not make it into Jhamtse Gatsai's small population... Opening a window onto the plight of the impoverished in a part of the world more associated with mountaineering adventure and visual splendor, this is recommended.\" - \u003cem\u003eVideo Librarian\u003c\/em\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e","published_at":"2016-12-13T17:33:00-08:00","created_at":"2017-04-21T02:43:07-07:00","vendor":"Andrew Hinton","type":"DVD","tags":["Home-Use"],"price":3000,"price_min":3000,"price_max":29500,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":33203464145,"title":"University \u0026 College (with PPR*)","option1":"University \u0026 College (with PPR*)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"TTM-U","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Tashi and the Monk - University \u0026 College (with PPR*)","public_title":"University \u0026 College (with PPR*)","options":["University \u0026 College (with PPR*)"],"price":29500,"weight":91,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":-57,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":""},{"id":33203464209,"title":"K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­Profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","option1":"K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­Profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"TTM-C","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Tashi and the Monk - K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­Profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","public_title":"K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­Profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)","options":["K-­12, Public Libraries, Non-­Profits \u0026 Government (with PPR*)"],"price":12500,"weight":91,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":-8,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":""},{"id":33203464273,"title":"Public Libraries (without PPR*) \/ Home Use","option1":"Public Libraries (without PPR*) \/ Home Use","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"TTM-P","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Tashi and the Monk - Public Libraries (without PPR*) \/ Home Use","public_title":"Public Libraries (without PPR*) \/ Home Use","options":["Public Libraries (without PPR*) \/ Home Use"],"price":3000,"weight":91,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":-18,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":""},{"id":33203464337,"title":"Digital Site License","option1":"Digital Site License","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"TTM-D","requires_shipping":false,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Tashi and the Monk - Digital Site License","public_title":"Digital Site License","options":["Digital Site License"],"price":29500,"weight":408687,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":-1,"inventory_management":null,"inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":""}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Tashi.png?v=1519771180","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/3D-CD_Cover_Art_TashiandTheMonk.png?v=1519771180","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/TashiStill_90ede1c4-7057-48cf-b72c-7517c04aace3.jpg?v=1519771180","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Jhamtse-26_347dc577-f423-41bf-989a-0e6628406b6f.jpg?v=1519771180"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/products\/Tashi.png?v=1519771180","options":["License"],"content":"\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ff0000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.collectiveeye.org\/pages\/host-a-screening\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Link to screening page Tashi and The Monk\" style=\"color: #ff0000;\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003e\u003cb\u003e\u003cimg src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/files\/Screening_large.png?13468160472198309702\" alt=\"\"\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eDirected by:\u003c\/strong\u003e Andrew Hinton \u0026amp;

Phuntsok matured and became deeply concerned with the welfare of other lost children. Leaving the temple life, he founded the Jhamtse Gatsai Children's Home in the Himalayan foothills of northern India, a commune-like haven that emphasizes mutual support and compassion—as opposed to professional counselors and career social workers. Five-year-old Tashi Drolma is a spirited girl troublemaker, a newcomer to the community, although much of the real drama here lies instead in the heartache of desperate families whose surplus kids, unlike Tashi, do not make it into Jhamtse Gatsai's small population...

This classic documentary traces the lives of three Hmong families displaced thousands of miles from their villages in Northern Laos and alienated in American cities. Renowned anthropologist Dwight Conquergood narrates the rich history of shamanic rituals and explains the similarity between Hmong beliefs and those of Aboriginal people of the Americas. Rare and dramatic scenes reveal traditional ceremonies and psychological challenges faced by the Hmong as they strive to maintain their culture. A missionary's attempt to convert a Hmong family to Christianity highlights the pressures confronting refugees adapting to a new environment. The effects of their trauma are extreme in the Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome, a mysterious phenomenon that causes Hmong men to die in their sleep. The ancient ways of the Hmong are in danger of being lost forever.

This classic documentary traces the lives of three Hmong families displaced thousands of miles from their villages in Northern Laos and alienated in American cities. Renowned anthropologist Dwight Conquergood narrates the rich history of shamanic rituals and explains the similarity between Hmong beliefs and those of Aboriginal people of the Americas. Rare and dramatic scenes reveal traditional ceremonies and psychological challenges faced by the Hmong as they strive to maintain their culture. A missionary's attempt to convert a Hmong family to Christianity highlights the pressures confronting refugees adapting to a new environment. The effects of their trauma are extreme in the Sudden Unexplained Nocturnal Death Syndrome, a mysterious phenomenon that causes Hmong men to die in their sleep. The ancient ways of the Hmong are in danger of being lost forever.
