Buddha Mom a book reading with Jacqueline Kramer

I wanted to re-post info for this event.   Jacqueline Kramer speaks to her experience of mindfully entering motherhood, from fertility to parenting.

Buddha Mom

A booksigning with Jacqueline Kramer

Wednesday, October 28, 2009


Your browser may not support display of this image. Pregnancy and fertility are impacted by both physical and emotional circumstances. Sometimes we feel fear from cautionary tales told and things we’ve seen; sometimes pregnancy, birth and mothering seem like ideals we cannot possibly live up to. Buddha Mom offers an alternative to the commonly-held views of pregnancy and birthing being either pure bliss or sheer hell. These archetypical female experiences can actually be the beginning of a deep, fulfilling spiritual practice. Difficulties can become fuel for growth and deeper understanding… a heroic journey. Jacqueline Kramer will read from her spiritual memoir Buddha Mom-The Path of Mindful Mothering and open up a discussion of an alternative and positive way to enter the journey of mothering.

Free: Film viewing of “The Happiest Baby on the Block”

This Wednesday, Natural Resources is having a free viewing of The Happiest Baby On the Block.   The talented and knowledgeable Amy Hyams will be leading a Q & A session after the film.  It’ll be informative and fun!


Wednesday, September 30, 11:30am – 1:00pm 
The Happiest Baby On The Block by Harvey Karp, MD 
Q&A after the film with newborn care & parenting educator, Amy Hyams 

The Happiest Baby On The Block
In “The Happiest Baby”, Dr. Harvey Karp reveals a treasure sought by new parents for centuries… the “calming reflex” (the automatic “off-switch” for any crying baby). Thousands of parents, from working moms to superstars like Madonna and Michelle Pfeiffer have turned to Dr. Karp to learn his secrets for making babies happy and raising respectful toddlers. Dr. Karp’s techniques really work. Dr. Karp has been on the Dr. Phil show on NBC twice this year. His techniques are praised and his toddler books are on the top 10 list.  

Do you learn better by watching rather than reading? Here is a chance to see how to transport your baby from screaming into serenity…in minutes. Watch as, step-by-step, Dr. Karp teaches new parent how to switch on their baby’s powerful calming reflex. 


There is no need to register for these events. Just show up prior to the screening time and enjoy the film! 

Viewing will be in the Natural Resources classroom.

Delivery Self Attachment by Dr. Lennart Righard

Follow Me Mum
This 20 minute video teaches mothers: How breastfeeding works; 
how to work with their baby’s instinctive behavior; & how to hold, position and attach their baby “It is my experience that the most simple and effective intervention for the majority of feeding problems is ensuring baby is tightly positioned as described in these education materials. In this position a mother can learn to work with and support her infants innate feeding abilities, to overcome almost any physical breastfeeding difficulty.”

Delivery Self Attachment
This amazing film demonstrates that leaving the newborn baby and mother together undisturbed after birth facilitates successful breastfeeding. The exciting six minutes of footage shows an unmedicated newborn making its way unassisted to mother’s breast after being placed on her lower abdomen! Everyone involved with pregnant and nursing mothers should watch this film! 6 minutes.
