About The Book
Today’s Gonna Be Awesomesauce is a daily mindfulness meditation book for youth, parents, and families (and educators too!) filled with practical wisdom, quirky wit, and edgy savviness created with an educator’s lens, a yogi mom’s heart, and a superhero love for humanity.
It’s also a book about turning grief (including our daily roadblocks) into rainbows. There are a lot of plans, strategies, checklists, and classes out there that help us try to cope with the stresses of life. Yet, if we don’t know how to practice focus and sustained concentration; identify and self-regulate our emotions; commit time to self-inquiry to gain better awareness about ourselves, how we relate to others and our environment; and learn tools that spark our creative power, then all those plans, strategies, and checklists are nothing more than what appears on the surface. My book takes readers below the surface to tap into a limitless reservoir of the special sauce, Awesomesauce, which feeds all that stuff on the outside to bring authentic transformation to how we relate in and to life.
Also included in the book are 365 mindful breathing mantras. If you are short on time and can’t read the day’s entry, take note of the mindful breathing mantra. The book isn’t meant to be analyzed; it’s meant to be felt and practiced and, to be read with a contemplative lens. Let the words clear your mind and dance in your heart space.
The book has something for everyone in the family and it’s great for educators too. Whether you read an entry a day or read a few, mindfully breath in the mindful breathing mantras in solitude, with your family, or your class, you will notice a shift in your heart and mind space. In that shift you will feel deep inside that Today’s Gonna Be Awesomesauce !
