Summary

The Joy of Loving-Kindness

Mindful Thoughts for Fathers is a series of beautifully illustrated reflections on different aspects of fatherhood, from the joy of holding your child for the first time and teaching them about the world, all the way through to the inevitability of illness and establishing bedtimes and boundaries. Pick this book up at any stage of fatherhood and dip into the calm of mindful awareness for deeper presence and understanding.
 
Comprised of 25 mindful reflections, each a thoughtful guide, Ady Griffiths (Vidyadasa) offers meditative reflections into the everyday details and bigger picture of fathering in today’s hectic world. In this carefully crafted little book, he encourages every father to find and embrace a mindful daily awareness for deeper presence, acceptance and understanding.
 
Covering topics such as the father’s changing identity, loving yourself as well as your loved ones and being "good enough," this book aims to address the internal worries and struggles of fathers during one of the most challenging and rewarding phases of life.

Whether you pick this little book up in a time of crisis, or in a moment of rare stillness, allow yourself to be guided through some of the ups and downs in a father's life, and let your mind pause to enjoy and cherish every stage of your child's life.
