Turn off screentime and come back to earth with this family mindfulness guidebook from Chippewa clinical psychologist Renda Dionne Madrigal, who reconnects her family with time-honored indigenous circle practice and respect for the natural world.

Family life can be chaotic and messy, and we easily forget what matters most for our health and happiness: “the spirit and wellness that have sustained our ancestors and our entire human family for as long as we’ve existed on the planet,” as Renda Dionne Madrigal puts it. If we, as parents, aren’t present with our children, they get their values from peer culture, advertising, and social media instead of the family stories, personal dreams, and ancestral instincts we can choose to support instead. Drawing on indigenous circle practice for communication, The Mindful Family Guidebook provides a deep-rooted guide for a family that grows with a sense of purpose and spiritual belonging. Whether we have young children or teens, cultivating authentic connection with each other and the natural world is vital for our mental and emotional health, and this book shows you how.
