As parents, we do whatever it takes to assure our children’s happiness and safety, and that they grow up to be their best selves. Unfortunately, though, our striving can lead to us becoming distracted and obsessive.
So how can we raise happy, healthy children while staying happy and healthy ourselves? In her new book, Zen and the Path of Mindful Parenting, Clea Danaan reveals how parenting can become a mindful practice that naturally creates an opportunity for personal, spiritual growth.
The key to living a joyful parenting life isn’t yet another manual. – and this book is not intended as such. Acting more like a circle of friends, the book is on hand to offer stories and insights gained throughout the journey of parenthood.
Through a series of meditative insights on the challenges and joys of parenting, accompanied by practical exercises that can involve the whole family, Clea reveals how a heart-led, mindful awareness is the only manual a family will ever need.
