Author information

Sarah Napthali is a mother of two young boys who tries to apply Buddhist teachings in her daily life. Her working life has ranged from teaching English as a Second Language and corporate training, to human rights activism and interpreting. Since becoming a mother she has focussed on writing, initially for companies and later for individuals wanting to record their memoirs. With seven memoirs completed, she is the author of Buddhism for Mothers (Allen + Unwin, 2003) which has been translated into nine languages to date, and Buddhism for Mothers with Lingering Questions (Allen + Unwin, 2007). Since the children started school, Sarah is very pleased to report that she manages to meditate daily.

Review quote

"An eminently practical book that gives frazzled mothers usable advice and empathy . . . the approachable and authentic perspective of a rank-and-file practitioner who lives the techniques and situations she writes about. This book will be most useful for mothers of young children, providing them spiritual resources at a life stage when women need all the help they can get." --"Publishers Weekly" on "Buddhism for Mothers"
