Shows parents how they can enrich their own and their childrens' lives through raising their awareness of life's gifts

Blackwell North Amer
In Everyday Blessings, Jon and Myla Kabat-Zinn show how parents can enrich their lives and the lives of their children through mindful parenting - that is, by honoring the fullness of the present moment, and within it, the inner potential and beauty that reside in both our children and ourselves.
As parents, we are often caught up in moving so quickly and so automatically that we have trouble seeing our children fully in each moment, particularly when things are not occurring as we would like them to. As a result, it can be difficult for us to give our children the greatest possible gift a parent can give - one's own nonjudgmental, conscious, fully accepting presence. Everyday Blessings provides a powerful new way of looking at and facing the challenges of parenthood, illuminating how a lack of awareness fosters patterns that damage both parent and child, and how mindfulness can bring healing and transformation to this essential relationship.
Through the inner work of cultivating mindfulness in our parenting and in our lives, we can find our own ways to nourish our children's soul needs and, in the process, grow ourselves.

A revised, updated version of a loving collaboration between two thoughtfully minded parents, partners, and people traveling along the path of mindfulness. From birth to toddlery to teenagery, the Kabat-Zin's lay out the full fledged promise of parenting with unexpected honesty and brutal truth. I soaked up each word like a sponge, willing an osmotic knowing of my whole body to be more present and mindful in each parenting day. I may have fallen in love with this book and it has definitely made the short-list for my personal library.
