In the rush, rush, rush of too-much-to-do-and-no-time-to-do-it, the all-important, nurturing aspects of parenthood can easily disappear. Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are and Myla Kabat-Zinn have collaborated on Everyday Blessings, a book that approaches parenting from the Zen Buddhist position of moment-to-moment awareness. It's a beautiful presentation and a thoughtful approach to mindful meditation that will help you slow down, enrich your life as a parent, and nourish the internal life of your children. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"The pages of this book invite us to discover a way of parenting in the present moment that helps us see our children for who they are and ourselves with greater awareness. Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn show us a wise path that leads to deep connection, empathy, and love both for our children and ourselves. Their book is a treasure, especially for these fast-paced, accelerating times when many of us seek more balance and wholeness in our lives and relationships."―Nancy Carlsson-Paige, author of Taking Back Childhood: A Proven Roadmap for Raising Confident, Creative, Compassionate Kids.
"The Kabat-Zinns' book is a gift and a blessing, filled with wise counsel for stepping wholeheartedly into the parenting journey. I urge parents to take refuge in this beautiful book, and to be inspired to embrace each day as an opportunity for learning, growing, and loving more deeply."―Susan Stiffelman, author of Parenting without Power Struggles: Raising Joyful, Resilient Kids While Staying Cool, Calm, and Connected
"Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn are pioneers in cultivating the inner clarity that creates the parental presence our children of any age need to become securely attached. Their personal and professional insights in this accessible, story-filled classic volume enable us to become the kind of parent we want to be-open, attuned, flexible, and compassionate to our children and to ourselves. This revised and updated edition of the original source for 'mindful parenting' gives us new guidance to create the life of love our children deserve. Soak in their words of wisdom and everyone will benefit!"―Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., author of Brainstorm: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain
