Bringing Up Buddhas? Changing the World With Mindful Meditation for Kids Monday August 12, 2013 1 pm (CST) on Healthy Mind and Body radio my guest is Vanessa Gobes, Mom, writer, blogger and mindfulness meditation facilitator
Vanessa is a journalism major turned Mommy turned writer. She shares her experiences in spiritual awakening and mindful parenting. Her work appears in print and online. Visit bringingupbuddhas.com to read her mind.
Pregnancy brought on a major spiritual intervention. For years she had what she called "spiritual brain dumps and paradigm shifts". She devoured books on metaphysics and energy, reincarnation and Buddhism and she found an outlet through blogging. Her first blog "Everything Old is New Age Again" and eventually became "Bringing Up Buddhas". She since been picked up as a mindful living columnist for my local newspaper and as a contributing writer on Intent.com, Breakthenorms.com and Letters to a Nichiren Buddhist.
Vanessa is writing a book about finding a balance between contemplation ("being") and harnessing the "Giddy Up" to actively get things done. She worked with a team of moms to bring meditation to the second grade of our neighborhood public school and will spread this program to all students.
She also initiated a partnership with Dr. Christopher Willard and tailored a meditation program especially for politicians which we have begun to implement in Massachusetts.
