Homemaking and Personal Development
Meditative Practice for Homemakers
Veronika van Duin began her career forty years ago as a homemaker. Beginning with love, enthusiasm, and idealism, she quickly discovered that she had underestimated the magnitude of the task, which left her feeling inadequate and guilty much of the time, as well as alone and occasionally lonely.
Out of those humbling feelings, Homemaking and Personal Development came into being. In it, the author offers support and hope for other homemakers, revealing the discoveries that provided her—and many in her workshops and courses—with basic tools for overcoming personal hindrances. In this wonderfully uplifting book, van Duin provides exercises for restoring and maintaining equilibrium, gaining understanding, creating joy, validating feeling, maintaining vitality and drive, developing insight, finding freedom, and much more.
Homemaking and Personal Development will help mothers and fathers enjoy a richer, more fulfilling experience in the home.
