"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.
