Enlightenment Through Motherhood
"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...Astra Niedra reclaims for all human beings a precious element of that which is truly sacred in life." More
If you enjoyed Elizabeth Gilbert's 'Eat Pray Love' and you're a mother, then you'll love this book!
Described as "Absolutely brilliant!.. just what the world needs now," 'Enlightenment Through Motherhood' will take you on an uplifting journey where you'll discover that there is far more to being pregnant and raising children than conventional wisdom would have us believe.
'Enlightenment Through Motherhood' reveals 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.
The author, teacher of Voice Dialogue, writer on relationships and parenting, and mother of three, Astra Niedra, explains these revelations in her bliss-provoking book set in the Australian temporal paradise of Northern Queensland, where she attempts a holiday while eight months pregnant with her third child, with husband and two young children in tow.
Dr Sidra Stone, author of many books including The Shadow King, says: "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."
And according to Susan Ross, midwife, birth educator and author of Birth Right:
"Enlightenment indeed! I hope many women have the opportunity to read Astra's book. Being pregnant, birthing and mothering are the most important jobs on earth. Honouring these roles is important for governments and society to appreciate and elevate to a much higher status. Astra's journey is familiar, delightfully written and inspiring."
"Thanks for the great read. As a mum of a 4-year-old boy and 2-year-old girl, and 71/2 months pregnant with the third, it's just what I needed." Kasia
