So much about Buddhism is about a practice that requires solitude, meditation, focus, attention and attending workshops or classes None of which can be done with children The most valuable thing about this book is how it highlights that everyday mom things can be a part of the Buddhist path and how Buddhist philosophy can improve parenting simply by being mindful and present I found it inspiring. Jacqueline Kramer gives information about her personal journey through pregnancy and motherhood from a Buddhist perspective, and guidance for all moms hoping to realize the spiritual potential of motherhood I found the suggestions realistic, and I could really relate to the situations she described It helped me take another step towards fully embracing and enjoying the mom role that I ve chosen to make central in my life.For anyone who reads this book and wants , visit Jacqueline s website www.hearthfoundation.net for information about her free online classes. too terrible to finish Kramer has a great way of pouring out buddhist practice into drinkable portions for moms The practical applications of following the middle path and meditation as everyday mindfulness is something moms can feel good, not guilty about She seems to be following her own imperfect and rocky path which makes her an elegant teacher rather than an unattainable idol In the beginning I thought I wanted an idol a prophet of moms and I was turned off by the mention of some of her failings By the middle of the book, I was thankful for her insights, thankful that she was just one of us who happened to know deeply about buddhist practice I want to read it all over again simply for the nuggets of wisdom and great reminders While it was not a great comprehensive work, it was a bunch of short anecdotes filled with wisdom and heartfelt grace. In Buddha Mom, Jacqueline Kramer Beautifully Illuminates The Ways In Which Motherhood Can Be Woven With The Spiritual Life Drawing Upon Her Twenty Years As A Practicing Buddhist, As Well As Many Other Wisdom Traditions From Around The World, She Offers Powerful Insights Into Cultivating A Spiritual Attitude Toward ParentingIn Chapters, Guided By Central Buddhist Themes Simplicity, Nurturance, Joyful Service, Unconditional Love Kramer S Personal Experience Of Pregnancy, Birth, And Then Raising Her Daughter To Adulthood Serves As A Guide To Integrating The Roles Of Parent And Spiritual Being A Celebration Of All That Motherhood Can Be, Buddha Mom Presents An Inspiring Vision Of Child Rearing A very good book I expected of a parenting book but delightfully ended up with a book on Buddism from a mom perspective It was a insightful book then I expected Kramer writes simply and without an arrogance found in many parenting books I will definitely be revisiting this book in the years to come. I intentionally took forever to read this book It was such a lovely little gem to read and contemplate Really made me savor and appreciate the mothering process really value it for what it is I d like to read it again. I keep this book on my nightstand at all times It is so inspiring and reminds me to be mindful and to honour the beauty and challenges that only a journey through motherhood can bring to my life. not as informative as I was looking for How to handle difficult emotions and practice without sitting alone on a mountain top.
