    Buddhist Parenting Group in Brooklyn

    Submitted by Jonathan S. Kaplan, Ph.D.

    Starting on January 29th, I'll be offering a 9-month series of workshops on parenting, mindfulness, Buddhism, and family life.  The group was recently profiled on the popular blog, A Child Grows in Brooklyn.  If you're interested, please visit the dedicated page of my website for more information:  Parenting on the Path.  Also, if you live elsewhere or find this link after the group has started, please feel free to reach out to me.  I'm happy to be in touch.

    How much is your family worth?

    By Jonathan Kaplan, Ph.D.

    Two days ago, the actress and singer Jennifer Hudson offered a $100,000 reward for the safe return of her 7-year-old nephew who was abducted. Tragically, the young boy was discovered dead soon afterwards.

    In offering this reward, Ms. Hudson clearly expressed a core value of loving her family more than money. For most of us who worry about losing money, savings, and investments during the current financial crisis, we have still have our family. It’s time to notice mindfully who--not what--we have and how much we treasure them. After all, how much is your family worth?
