About the Author
From the Publisher
The world that we are living in and our children are growing up in is incredibly complex.
It moves very quickly and the experience is often challenging. It is all too easy as a parent to get into an automatic pilot mode of living, simply pursuing one goal after another;
in the process missing out on so much of the journey. In this book I hope to inspire you to step aside from the busy flow of life, and take advantage of the exciting developments in the field of neuroscience and mindfulness, by finding ways of applying the techniques to your own personal experience of life.
For most parents, attaining a sense of contentment and being at ease can all too often seem frustratingly elusive.
What starts with the excitement (or pressure) of wanting to achieve a pregnancy, is often quickly replaced with worry—that check-ups will confirm things are ‘normal’ and that the child will be well. If, at the end of the pregnancy, we are presented with a healthy baby it can then feel as if a whole new world of things to worry about pours into our life. Why is this baby not sleeping? Is she getting enough milk? Why won’t she stop crying? Am I doing the right things? And on it goes.
This book was inspired by a desire to interest more parents in the process of self-discovery that mindfulness training involves.
I have tried to write this book in such a way that it is a lived experience, and as such in each chapter you will be invited to reflect upon your own emotional experience of life or of being in relationships. You will find instruction for formal meditation practice, but you will also read stories drawn from my own work with young parents (whose names have been changed in this book) who have found ways to integrate mindfulness into their lives.
Feel free to dip into chapters about subjects that catch your attention. There is no real need to read this book from beginning to end. In general, the early chapters provide background information about how our minds work and the source of mindfulness. The later chapters explore ways to bring mindfulness into our daily lives and relationships.
