Meditation can help us when our kids act out. It is easy for us to react quickly. But usually our reaction contain in them things that have nothing to do with our kids. We at out of our own past, out of our own hurt feelings and traumas.
We need some daylight between our kids acting out, and our own reactions. With that daylight, we can see clearly what our kids are doing and we can see more clearly that what they are doing has nothing to do with us. It’s their internal process, not an attempt to be disrespectful or to hurt us.
Meditation can help you gain that day light. Here are the resources I mentioned in the video (in npc particular order):
The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoche.
The Way of Qigong by Ken Cohen.
Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening by Cynthia Bourgault.
The Path of Centering Prayer: Deepening Your Experience of God by David Frenetic.
The Path to Bodhidharma: The Teachings of Shodo Harada Roshi by Shodo Harada.
Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind: Informal Talks on Zen Meditation and Practice by Shunryu Suzuki.
The Art of Meditation by Joel S. Goldsmith.
There are many more, but I suggest you pick one that appeals to you and stick with that for a while, before you search in another place.
And if you want to share other resources, I welcome that heartily.
And do sign up for future videos.
