I have a strong conviction, based on experience, that the context of motherhood offers many invaluable opportunities for insight, heart-opening and personal and spiritual growth. This includes invitations from small children to dwell in the here and now and opportunities for letting go and responding creatively to not getting what we want. We will focus on the inherent opportunities and challenges of motherhood during the weekend.
I was inspired to write this book for myself and for other mothers questioning how to make the teachings and lifestyles associated with Buddhism relevant to our own lives. I was really keen that it would be ‘warts and all’ rather than present an idealised, soft focus view. I’m always touched when people tell me it resonates with their own experience and helps gives them confidence in their own spiritual practice.
