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.
