Description

A completely accessible and practical guide to nurturing your child using simple Buddhist practices, become a calmer and happier mother with the best-selling book, Buddhism for Mothers. 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.

Buddhism for Mothers explores the potential to be with your children in the all-important present moment; to gain the most joy out of being with them. How can this be done calmly and with a minimum of anger, worry and negative thinking? How can mothers negotiate the changed conditions of their relationships with partners, family and even with friends?

Using Buddhist practices, Sarah Napthali offers ways of coping with the day-to-day challenges of motherhood. Ways that also allow space for the deeper reflections about who we are and what makes us happy. By acknowledging the sorrows as well as the joys of mothering Buddhism for Mothers can help you shift your perspective so that your mind actually helps you through your day rather than dragging you down. This is Buddhism at its most accessible, applied to the daily realities of ordinary parents.

"Emotional support of the finest kind: funny, uplifting, reassuring, real and wise. A truly 'mothering' book for mothers... and their children will benefit hugely." (Stephanie Dowrick, author of Choosing Happiness)

Helpful Book!

What made the experience of listening to Buddhism for Mothers the most enjoyable?

I find this book helpful. I saw that one reviewer called it negative. I don't see it that way and in fact, to say that may actually be evidence that one missed the point of the book. It's very calming, realistic and helpful. The author acknowledges many of the challenges of parenthood (as opposed to using motherhood only because this advice is equally good for fathers.) I'd highly recommend this book and have already done so to several friends and family members. It's definitely on the "self-help" train. So, be prepared for that approach.

wonder read

this will forever be my go to book when I feel the overwhelming demands of being a mother. I feel I'm a better person and parent after listening, and Sarah spoke the truth of the frustrations of being a parent with my solutions on how to refocus and be mindful.

Good general read

I really liked this book. The narrator has a neutral voice and the content is pretty grounded. It's a great just general check in and listen and evaluate kind of book. One that you could read over and over. One huge downside is they keep referring to the appendix. And audio book - that is hard. Would have been nice to amend that somehow.

Focusing on negative didn't help me...

I have been working on meditation and positive affirmations lately. Being a single mother of three young children, I thought this book would be perfect for me. I began listening to it this past Saturday for a couple hours as I cleaned the house and realized that I was especially agitated with my kids! When I took a moment to think about what was wrong I realized that the book was about how depressing, draining and challenging parenting is, thus making me feel drained and annoyed! I appreciate that the author is willing to admit that parenting is not always wonderful and fun but I would have benefited from this book more if she acknowledged that and then moved on to the more positive aspects of raising a family.

Loved everything about this book!

I am on my second listen!! This book offers great advice for us uptight, easily frustrated moms. I could so relate to the author of this book. It does not go into great depth about Buddhism rather offers practical spiritual advice we can apply to make life more peaceful and fulfilling.

Life chaging

What did you love best about Buddhism for Mothers?

This book is for every parent... Doesn't matter what your religion is.... this book is a MUST listen. I have now listened to it three different times in my parenting career of 7 years and 3 kids and each time it has given me new insight and renewed hope for calming my inner anger, critic and ego and learn to be in the moment and find joy.

What did you like best about this story?

The story is easy to listen to and easy to relate to. It is not negative in anyway, yet still deals with the harsh realities of parenting. It gets at the core of issues mothers struggle with and it helps break them down and allows you to really explore the reason behind them.

Have you listened to any of Rebecca Macauley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to any of her other performances, but this one is well done and her voice is easy to listen to with a light flow and slight accent I find enduring.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The WHOLE book! The beginning intro started it off and it just continued from there. This hit me at my core. I was desperately searching for someone to validate the struggles that mothers feel and the intensity of parenthood and this book was it!!

Any additional comments?

GET IT and LISTEN. And then repeat. And then give it to other friends and family for a gift!

Buddhism for Mother's Recommended

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Buddhism for mothers was very inspirational and well recieved. I enjoyed every moment of it. It provides down to earth explanations for lay practitioners and real life stories which are easy to relate to as a mother.

Extremely helpful! :)

Very accessible and helpful advice for all parents. It assisted me to refresh and inspire my spirit whilst my parenting was going through a difficult patch. The relationship with my child (and myself) has benefited enormously. :) :) :) I am keeping this audiobook on hand to listen to whenever I feel I need a reminder about what is important! (My only criticism is sometimes the case studies were a little cliche and over simplified - but this is such a minor thing in a book that is so inspiring).
