EVERYTHING I NEEDED TO KNOW I LEARNED FROM MY 6-MONTH OLD
Awakening to Unconditional Self Love in Motherhood
EVERYTHING I NEEDED TO KNOW I LEARNED FROM MY 6-MONTH OLD is Eat Pray Love for mothers.
There is a tribe in Africa where, the first time a woman leaves home following the confinement period after giving birth, everyone she meets along the road greets her with a sacred song otherwise reserved for warriors returning from battle. She’s honored as having lived through a rite of passage that will forever mark her womanhood as abundant and powerful and blessed. She’s respected as a fully-franchised member of the most ubiquitous and yet most extraordinary group of beings in our collective experience: mothers. EVERYTHING I NEEDED TO KNOW I LEARNED FROM MY 6-MONTH OLD is Eat Pray Love for mothers. It fuses memoir, spirituality and self-development into a unique perspective which posits that babies are actually extraordinary spiritual teachers capable of showing their caregivers the way toward inspired living. Kuwana Haulsey imparts this deeper understanding of a universal truth of love, in which motherhood is explored as a means of waking up to her innate potential for personal transformation. Kuwana Haulsey is the author of The Red Moon, which was a 2002 finalist for the Zora Neale Hurston/Richard Wright Legacy Award for Debut Fiction. Born and raised in New York City, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Rutgers University magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. Kuwana has led seminars for the PEN/Faulkner Foundation in Washington, D.C., and at Rutgers University. She’s taught writing at UCLA and Agape International and is also an actress currently living in North Hollywood where she co-teaches classes on spirituality with Reverend Michael Beckwith. Michael Bernard Beckwith is an American New Thought minister, author, and founder of the Agape International Spiritual Center in Culver City, CA, a New Thought church with more than 8,000 members. Beckwith has contributed a brilliant Foreword to Kuwana Haulsey's book.
