- A conversation with Jacqueline Kramer, author of Buddha Mom-the Path of Mindful Mothering and director of the Hearth Foundation. She has been studying and practicing Theravadin Buddhism for over 30 years, has been a Religious Science Practitioner, as well as a student of Zen koans, and of the world’s Wisdom traditions. Her root teacher was Annagarika Dhamma Dinna who taught in the Sri Lankan tradition. She also studied with the Venerable Ananda Maitreya, Achan Sobin Namto, the Venerable Punnaji Mahathera, Ayya Khema and John Tarrant.
In 2007 Jacqueline received the Outstanding Women in Buddhism Award for her work teaching Buddhism to mothers around the world. Jacqueline is past VP of Alliance for Bhikkhunis and her work is published in various Buddhist journals such as Turning Wheel and Present. Jacqueline has also created online lay Buddhist practice classes which she offers, as in the Buddhist tradition, at no cost. She is a mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend.
The Hearth Foundation, established in 2006, is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the spiritual growth and well-being of parents through study, practice and community building activities. While the core philosophy is Buddhist, Hearth draws on all Wisdom traditions to further positive parenting experience through everyday practice. It supports the creation of a kinder, more mindful world by supporting spiritual practice within the home. Hearth offers online lay Buddhist practice classes and other classes designed to support the spiritual life and well-being of families. Hearth also offers other resources for families, such as a monthly newsletter, a place to connect with other like-minded families and suggested resources for spiritual parenting.
