Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi

Cloth Diapers, Cosleeping, and My (Sometimes Successful) Quest for Conscious Parenting

In his Misadventures of a Garden State Yogi, Brian Leaf both inspired and amused as he described the myriad ways that yoga changed his life - and why his life as a college student suffering from anxiety, colitis, and ADD needed changing.

Now Leaf turns the page, letting readers in on his meeting with future wife Gwen (at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health), their "Not Not-Trying" and subsequent pregnancy - and Leaf's wearing of a synthetic strap-on belly during downward dog posture.

As the latter shows, Leaf took parenthood seriously from the get-go and so he explores Attachment, Playful, Unconditional, Simplicity and good old Dr. Spock parenting. Humorous trial and poignant error lead Leaf to "conscious parenting." And it's this recognition of the supremely practical benefits of being fully present to each new reality that gives Leaf, and readers, a glimpse of the very heart of yoga.
