Motherhood can be one of the most intense and transformative experiences of a woman's life. While there are many books that offer the "do's and don'ts" of effective parenting, few offer guidance on navigating the tumultuous inner experience of being a mother, with all its joy, pain, change, and uncertainty. This collection of writing by psychologists, poets, novelists, spiritual teachers, and everyday moms explores the rich, transformative journey of motherhood.

   ·  Poet and novelist Louise Erdrich captures the sheer wonder and awe of early motherhood.
   ·  Self-described "hip momma" Ariel Gore reflects on the challenges of dealing with her daughter's adolescent rebellion.
   ·  Journalist Joan Peters highlights the rise of the "Power Mom" and the risks of overparenting to our children and ourselves.
   · Zen teacher Cheri Huber shares a spiritual perspective: sometimes it's us parents who need a "time out" so that we can be more fully present and loving with our children. 


Previously published in hardcover under the title Your Children Will Raise You.

Review:

“Grab the tissues and let the dishes pile up in the sink—at last there is a book that speaks to a mother's heart.”—Publishers Weekly
“For all current and prospective mothers, this assembly of motherly sagacity will prove indispensable as both a reference and a much-needed dose of soul food.”—Kirkus

“This is not your average parenting book, but a distinctive collection of writings about the emotional and spiritual landscape of motherhood. . . . Essential reading for every mother.”—Library Journal (starred review)
“A satisfying collection of essays on the exquisite emotional complexities of life as a mother.”—Mothering

“This has become the book that I will give to every new mother. It is written by women of courage, insight, and vision who are putting into words a realm of experience that has traditionally been left without language.”—Juno (UK)

“Seeking the inner Mama turns out to be as much fun as it is spiritual. Witty and erudite, the book is a delight.”—Portland Book Review
