The newest listing in our Web directory for moms is a blog titled “Mommy Mystic“. Lisa, the author of Mommy Mystic, describes herself in this way:
I am a mom, teacher, and writer – mostly in that order, but it shifts from day to day. Raised Christian but drawn to Buddhism and yoga in college, I studied both seriously for many years, and have meditated daily since that time. I now teach meditation and spirituality within a non-denominational, or as I prefer to call it, ‘cross-denominational’, context. I believe that the mystic branches of every world religion – the branches that emphasize personal spiritual experience and our individual relationship to the divine – are each unique paths to the same universal truths and understanding.
And from what I saw the reviews and posts on her blog are as interesting how she describes herself. Here’s a snippet from my favorite post of the few I looked over:

Spiritual teacher Ram Dass reportedly once said, ‘If you think you’re enlightened, spend a weekend with your parents.’ I would like to modify that to ‘have kids.’ Of course, having kids is a much bigger time commitment than spending a weekend with your parents. Instead, you get YEARS of weekends in which birthday parties, G-rated movies, and Chuckie Cheese’s qualify as high excitement. But that isn’t really what makes having kids such a spiritual reality check. The value is that you have a built in test of your ego and self-awareness on every front.
