Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jon Kabat-Zinn's national bestseller Wherever You Go, There You Are (400,000 sold) introduced the nation to mindfulness, the simple and powerful meditative practice of cultivating moment-to-moment awareness for greater peace and purposefulness in life. In Everyday Blessings, Jon joins forces with his wife, Myla, in a groundbreaking new book about mindfulness in parenting children of all ages, which was praised:

"At last! An emotionally intelligent guide for parents. A profoundly powerful and wise path for cultivating a nourishing awareness in family life" (Daniel Goleman, Emotional Intelligence); "A book that should be given to every parent before they leave the delivery room ... a universal manual for befriending the life in every child" (Rachel Remen, M.D., Kitchen Table Wisdom); and by the legendary Dr. Benjamin Spock as "a way for parents to recognize who their children really are and, in doing so, nourish their children's lives and their own".

The Kabat-Zinns explain that parents today are often forced to live on automatic pilot and, as a result, find it difficult to give the greatest gift of a parent — one's nonjudgmental, conscious, fully accepting presence. Everyday Blessings is a powerful new way of looking at and facing the challenges of parenting that draws upon the practice of mindfulness.

Synopsis:

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 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 thought-leader, Jon Kabat-Zinn and his wife, Myla Kabat-Zinn.

Synopsis:

The bestselling author of "Wherever You Go, There You Are" joins forces with his wife, Myla, in this groundbreaking new book about mindfulness in parenting children of all ages. Two-color throughout.
