Product description


Praise for The Awakened Family

"Stop struggling, parents. Here is the key to relaxing into your family and into your parenting. . . . [Tsabary] has a new book releasing us all from the stresses of 'making' the perfect child." --The Washington Post

"I want to give this book to everyone I know who is a parent, a grandparent, a child, a grown-up child . . . everyone. It's not only a primer for the kind of family life we all long for, it's also a guide to being human--to living with more ease, more love, more joy." --Elizabeth Lesser, cofounder of Omega Institute and author of Broken Open and Marrow

"Shefali Tsabary shines the light of wisdom on the most enlightened aspect of parenting: discovering a child's individual personhood and purpose, and nurturing the path to its fulfillment." --Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Life Visioning

"Best-selling author and speaker Tsabary combines the spirit of Thich Nhat Hahn's 1975 classic, Miracle of Mindfulness, with an intensive family therapy session--and the result is a transforming read for any parent." --Booklist, starred review

"Useful and encouraging . . . Tsabary's message is an antidote to recent trends such as for 'helicopter parenting, ' teaching respect for children as people in their own right and urging parents to let them thrive." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"I loved The Awakened Family . . . [Tsabary] explains why we need to trust in our children's potential and argues that the best parenting lies in being quiet and open." --Bookpage

Praise for The Conscious Parent

"CALLING ALL PARENTS! I just read the most profound book on parenting I've ever encountered--The Conscious Parent. . . Parents . . . you will be wowed and awed by her." --Oprah Winfrey

"Shefali Tsabary's invaluable book shows how the challenges of parenting can become a great opportunity for spiritual awakening. Becoming a fully conscious parent is the greatest gift you can give to your child." --Eckhart Tolle, author of The Power of Now and A New Earth

"In this book, Dr. Shefali Tsabary describes the importance of compassion in simple, secular terms, discussing how we can learn to develop it from our relationship with our children." --His Holiness the Dalai Lama

"The Conscious Parent is a spiritual vision of how to care for a child's body and soul. This book is practical and full of love and hope for both parents and children." --Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Boys and The Wonder of Girls
