Description

Parenthood can be a time of great inner turmoil for a woman. This book explores the potential to be with your children in the all-important present moment, to gain the most joy out of being with them. How can this be done calmly and with a minimum of anger, worry and negative thinking? How can mothers negotiate the changed conditions of their relationships with partners, family and even with friends? Using Buddhist practices, Sarah Napthali offers ways of coping with the day-to-day challenges of motherhood. Ways that also allow space for the deeper reflections about who we are and what makes us happy.show more

"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."

About Sarah Napthali

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.show more
