9781743108383: Buddhism for Mothers

Firmly grounded in day-to-day reality, Buddhism for Mothers discusses Buddhist teachings as applied to the everyday challenges of bringing up children.

Parenthood can be a time of great inner turmoil for a woman yet parenting books invariably focus on nurturing children rather than the mothers who struggle to raise them. This book is different. It is a book for mothers.

Using Buddhist practices, Sarah Napthali offers ways of coping with the day-to-day challenges of motherhood. How can this be done calmly and with a minimum of anger, worry and negative thinking? By acknowledging the sorrows as well as the joys of mothering Buddhism for Mothers can help you shift your perspective. This is Buddhism at its most accessible, applied to the daily realities of ordinary parents.

About the Author:

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. She is also the author of Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children (A&U, 2007) and Buddhism for Mothers of School Children (A&U, 2009).

From AudioFile:

This empathetic book is written by a practicing Buddhist mother for other mothers who face daily assaults on their desire to be calm and centered. Napthali explains early on that she's a mother, not a spiritual leader, and that she lives her Buddhism each day, and it is this practical, caring persona that narrator Rebecca Macauley brings to life. With her youthful-sounding Australian voice, Macauley enlivens the many anecdotes Napthali includes--stories of mothers trying to be mindful of their parenting mission in a world that offers constant distractions and frustrations, and tales that show how mothers who strive to be extraordinarily nurturing often fail to care for themselves. Macauley's contemplative voice nicely expresses Napthali's many soothing insights into the gifts that Buddhism offers mothers. J.C.G. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
