Reading this book, I felt I was with a warm, honest, and down-to-earth friend, sharing her insight and humor into what she aptly calls 'the volcanically active landscape' of family life. Cathryn Monro invites us to look deeply into our own experience and cultivate the qualities we most need as mothers to live our love — inner strength, flexibility, balance, and most importantly, greater self-awareness.

I am a working mother of three, and Cathryn's inspirational book resonates wtih me on many levels. She achieves a universal message through the particular stories she tells. The ingenious workbook form provides a practical and clear pathway to deal with the issues mothers face yet Cathryn's main concern is spirit and how we can light the way for ourselves and our kids.

"...Extremely thoughtful and meaningful and would be a great benefit to caring mothers. Well put together and easy to follow. This is a book in the making that could make a real difference to its intended audience."

Monro seems to be searching for the meaing of motherhood while inviting her readers to do the same. For readers who enjoy understanding life’s transitions from a spiritual angle and are interested in a self-investigation into their mothering experiences, this book is a must.

No other book has been able to combine the human and the divine so aptly. I have read many books, websites, youtube channels and blogs looking for parenting advice. They were all full of models and rules. Spilt Milk Yoga is not that; it is a tool that leads me to my own wisdom. I can dip into any page and find answers
