Overview

Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting by Jon Kabat-Zinn, Myla Kabat-Zinn

The bestselling author of Wherever You Go, There You Are (more than 1,000,000 total copies in print) and Full Catastrophe Living joins forces with his wife, Myla, in this groundbreaking revised edition (released in October, 2014) of the classic book about mindfulness in parenting children of all ages. Updated with new material—including an all new introduction and expanded practices in the epilogue—Everyday Blessings remains one of the few books on parenting that embraces the emotional, intuitive, and deeply personal experience of being a parent, applying the groundbreaking "mind/body connection" expertise from global mindfulness leader, Jon Kabat-Zinn and his wife, Myla Kabat-Zinn.

With the growing interest in mindfulness as a way of living, and with increasing scientific evidence of its value for optimal health and well-being, including a new field in psychology devoted to mindful parenting, and with mindfulness being increasingly integrated into K-12 education, there has never been a better time for cultivating greater mindfulness in parenting and in family life.

This book taught me how to stop losing my temper with my kids. I shudder to think how it would have been if I hadn't read it. Worth every penny.

This is by far the best parenting book I have encountered. Practical, not mystical --you don't need to be highly spiritual to learn from it. I wish my parents had read this book. I have read this book, from cover to cover, more than once. I can't say that about any other parenting book.

This book confirms the basic techniques I used in rasing my child - who is now a well adjusted adult. In addition I taught my child about a God unlike the God I was raised with. The concepts needed to accomplish the latter, can be found in the book An Encounter With A Prophet or as a second choice Conversations With God
