Overview

Sarah Napthali is on to the next stage of the parenting journey. Juggling working from home and managing a family, and worrying about whether she'll have a future career, Sarah is now the mother of seven-year-old Zac and the unrelentingly naughty four-year-old Alex. While she's no longer changing nappies or carrying babies, she is contending with the next lot of parenting challenges that every mother will be able to relate to.

In her clear and engaging way, Sarah takes us on a journey through the challenges (and joys!) of raising children, using Buddhist teachings and principles to help her answer the eternal questions of mothers everywhere: Who am I? Who are my children? Where am I going? And how can I do my best by my children and myself? Writing from personal experience, and weaving in stories from other mothers throughout her narrative, Sarah shows us how spiritual and mindful parenting can help all mothers to be more open, attentive and content.

Sarah's first book, Buddhism for Mothers, has sold copies to many mothers who practise Buddhism as well as to those who've never opened a Buddhist book in their lives.

About the Author:
Sarah is a mother of two young boys who tries to apply Buddhist teachings in her daily life. She is also the author of Buddhism for Mothers, which has sold in the United States, United Kingdom and been translated into four other languages to date. Since the children started school, Sarah is very pleased to report that she manages to meditate daily
