Testimonials: 

"This book is a must-have not only for parents and caregivers seeking a more mindful and meaningful foundation for their busy lives, but for those who know in their hearts that a meditation practice is very important in today's world." -Venerable Dhammajiva

“Fantastic! Shana offers a wealth of creative ideas, attitude adjustments, liberating insights and all the energy to try [them] on… This book isn’t about getting away from the hectic, hubbub of parental and domestic responsibilities, but rather how to stay in (inside, in-touch, informed, interested, insightful) and view it all as spiritual practicum!” - Steve Armstrong, Founding Director/Guiding Teacher of Vipassana Metta Foundation

“‘Meditation Practice for Moms and Dads’ offers a voice to the heart of Zen practice from the heart of a mother.  Read along; laugh along; cry along; sing along, dance along.” -Ken Kessel, Ji Do Poep Sa Nim, Zen Teacher in the Kwan Um School of Zen

“Meditation for Moms and Dads is a delightful book to read, overflowing with profound wisdom and timely tips for those of us seeking a source of true peace, joy and compassion in the midst of our hectic lives. Shana Smith, a longtime Zen practitioner, mom and meditator, musician and marine biologist, and much more, offers vivid anecdotes and eye-opening examples of living Zen in the context of her own family life, replete with penetrating insights and a touch of humor to boot… A truly masterful work worth reading again and again.” -Ruben L.F. Habito, Guiding Teacher at Maria Kannon Zen Center; Author of Healing Breath: Zen for Christians and Buddhists in a Wounded World.

“I had been an engaged Zen practitioner for ten years when our sons Florian and Benjamin were born fifteen months apart, throwing my quiet morning meditation practice and regular seven day retreat attendance completely overboard.  At that time, I would have much profited from the wisdom, compassion, humor and sheer delight of Shana’s book that I heartily recommend to new and not so new parents alike!”-Maria Reis Habito, Sanbo Zen Teacher and International Program Director, Museum of World Religions
