Summary
A heartfelt memoir of motherhood as a spiritual practice by a longtime yoga and dharma teacher. Sutra is the Sanskrit name for a short spiritual teaching, and it comes from the same root as the English word suture, or stitch. This story of motherhood as a path to awakening is, says yoga and meditation teacher Anne Cushman, "an homage to the long threads that run through all human lives, stitching up what's shredded in our hearts." The Mama Sutra spans an eighteen-year journey through motherhood as a spiritual practice, chronicling Cushman's first pregnancy, her daughter's tragic stillbirth, the joyful birth of her son, the "home retreat" of early motherhood, the challenges of parenthood, the diagnosis and gifts of her son's developmental differences, the meltdown of her nuclear family and its reconfiguration into a new and joyful form, and more. This is a powerful story of the rawness and beauty of life
