A calm approach to caring for yourself and your children. (International Bestseller)
Parenthood can be a time of great inner turmoil for a woman. Yet parenting books invariably focus on nurturing children rather than the mothers who struggle to raise them. This book is different. It is a book for mothers.
Buddhism for Mothers explores the potential to be with your children in the all-important present moment, to gain the most joy out of being with them- calmly and with a minimum of anger, worry and negative thinking.
Using Buddhist practices, Sarah Napthali offers ways of coping with the day-to-day challenges of motherhood. Ways that also allow space for deeper reflections about who we are, what makes us happy and all of the sorrows and joys of mothering. This is Buddhism at its most accessible, applied to daily realities of ordinary parents.
Even if exploring Buddhism at this busy stage of your life is not where you thought you'd be, it's well worthwhile reading this book. It CAN make a difference.
Also available in the Inspired Living series: 'Buddhism for Mothers of Schoolchildren' and 'Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children'.
