Mindfulness is the powerful meditative practice of cultivating moment-to-moment awareness to bring wisdom, understanding, and a greater sense of meaning and purpose into our daily living. Now, 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. 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 relationship.
