Do you have an active meditation practice? Or, did you have one before becoming a parent?
Even if you are completely new to meditation, are you interested in building upon the proven benefits of this practice and encouraging your children to join you in cultivating mindfulness?
Author, mother, and meditation teacher Amy Wright Glenn reflects often upon the benefits of introducing children to mindfulness based practices and seated meditation practice. As a Mommy & Me Yoga teacher, Amy has supported many mothers in their efforts to cultivate mindfulness with their children. She writes on what it means to integrate yoga practice with mothering and was featured in the Wall Street Journal on the topic.
In her articles and personal blog posts, Amy reflects upon birth, death, motherhood, ethics, and religion/spirituality. She is a regular contributor to PhillyVoice and has blogged for Attachment Parenting International, The Birthing Site, Philly.com, and Holistic Parenting Magazine.
Author and educator Peggy O'Mara observes: "With her triple identity as yoga teacher, doula, and chaplain, Amy Wright Glenn brings a one-of-a-kind tenderness and empathy to her writing and she's not afraid to talk about the difficult parts of life."
