“This is likely the most honest description of what genuine mindfulness means for our everyday lives that you will ever read,” says Dr. Shefali Tsabary, author of the Oprah-acclaimed books The Conscious Parent, Out of Control, and The Awakened Family. “This is the story of a mother who lays out her struggles as an individual, a wife, and a parent in a manner that causes us to laugh and cry with her—and simultaneously admire her—as she tells of her messy journey and shows us what it really means to be mindful.”
Rachel Macy Stafford, New York Times bestselling author of Hands Free Mama, Hands Free Life, and Only Love Today, says: “Mindful Parenting in a Messy World reveals how mindfulness can ground parents moment-to-moment, even amidst chaos, and find peace together and within."
