Join personal growth, relationship and parenting writer, and mother of three Astra Niedra on her family 'holiday' while eight months pregnant, during which she discovers the similarities between motherhood and the world's great spiritual traditions.
While exploring pristine beaches and lush rainforests, enjoying luxurious accommodation and world-class restaurants serving the freshest of local delicacies (but only fish and chips for children), Astra discovers that the tasks mothers do on a daily basis as part of their role, and the skills they develop in doing them, are exactly the same as the practices and abilities promoted in spiritual traditions for the attainment of enlightenment.
So if you're on a spiritual path or are interested in personal growth and development, if you meditate or practise yoga, if you're pregnant or already a mother and are wondering how your mothering role can tie in with your consciousness-raising ambitions, then this book is for you!
You'll be inspired, you'll be entertained, and your spirits will be lifted, all the while grounding you in the unshakeable truth that there is far more to raising children than conventional wisdom would have us believe.
According to Dr Sidra Stone, co-creator of Voice Dialogue and author of many books including The Shadow King: The invisible force that holds women back: "Enlightenment Through Motherhood is absolutely brilliant! This book is just what the world needs now as our planet continues to move towards political and ecological disaster while the patriarchal systems that still dominate our thinking continue to devalue everything traditionally – and biologically – female.
"In a most perfect balance of yin and yang, of logic and feeling, of humor and gravity, Astra Niedra reclaims for all human beings – not just women – a precious element of that which is truly sacred in life. Her simple, spellbinding stories, her keen intellect, and her unfailing humor make this book a pleasure to read.
"Here is a new way of thinking of spirituality, of valuing our humanity while living a spirit-infused life, and a fascinating (and novel) path to enlightenment! It’s a consciousness changer and I loved it."
