In Buddha Mom Jacqueline Kramer beautifully illuminates the ways in which motherhood can be intricately woven into the spiritual life. Drawing upon her twenty years as a practicing Buddhist, as well as many other wisdom traditions from around the world, she offers powerful insights into cultivating a more spiritual attitude toward parenting.
In chapters organized around central Buddhist themes-Simplicity, Nurturance, Joyful Service, Unconditional Love-Kramer's personal experience of pregnancy, birth, and then raising her daughter to adulthood serves as a guide to integrating the roles of parent and spiritual being. She reveals how powerful an opportunity for growth each step along the path of motherhood can be, from the first pangs of pregnancy through the time when a child leaves home.
A truly unique celebration of all that motherhood can be, Buddha Mom is an inspiring vision of child rearing.show more
