I have recently joined. Just started this thread because I am in the thick of single parenting with an early teen.
I wanted to find ways of incorporating meditation into my daily life, there are so many chores to do and situations to navigate, this book appealed to me. I've done a brief read, wondered what others thought of this.
The basic jist of it is, being a mother is kind of like having a Zen Master who is the strictest that you could possibly get!
I kind of identify with this! Constantly challenging if you know what I mean. And little if no time to go on retreat - or indeed retreat in daily life...
Also the challenge that due to where we are just now, it is difficult to get to a Buddhist Centre. Classes are quite far away so I have to dig deep and practice on my own...
As you've figured out, I have an allotment. This helps, but finding the tme to rest peacefully is perhaps my biggest challenge.
In Friendship and Compassion and thanks for replies in advance, just put this in one group, hope that is okay.
