174 Motherhood As A Spiritual Practice 

Anne Cushman

Parenthood tests us in ways that we never anticipated, making it like a spiritual practice for unprecedented growth and change. Today’s guest, author, and meditation teacher Anne Cushman experienced love and loss that deepened her experience of motherhood, teaching her to be fully present for all of it. She tells us that we don’t get to pick and choose what we’re present for. If we want to be present for those precious, joyful moments, we have to take in the difficulties too.
