As co-author Andrea Gosline writes, "I was moved to compile a book celebrating motherhood because I knew I was not alone in my quest for heightened spiritual awareness as a woman, more peace and knowingness as a parent."
With readings by Isabel Allende, Maya Angelou, Thich Nhat Hanh, Marlene Dietrich, Princess Grace of Monaco, Vladimir Nabokov, Adrienne Rich, Amy Tan, Carl Jung, Mother Teresa, E. B. White, Ursula LeGuin, Mary Wollstonecraft, the Dalai Lama, Simone De Beauvoir, and many others.
Celebrating Motherhood gathers folklore, birth stories, naming customs, and spiritual guidance for first- or fifth-time mothers. An exquisitely illustrated celebration of life, filled with comfort and joy, this book is an original insight into the sacred journey of motherhood. The perfect gift!
