Meditation for Motherhood
Books by Brahm
In Meditation for Motherhood, Brahm offers step-by-step guidance on authentic Zen meditation, the most powerful, natural and deeply beneficial practice available to a woman during the phases of creating and nurturing her baby.
With over 40 gentle exercises, tailored to every phase of the motherhood journey, you will practice the ancient arts of:
- letting go tension, apprehension and worry
- damping down the mind-babble that arises from stress
- mindfulness, the unique ability to focus on ‘just this’
- embracing your own wisdom when faced with difficulties
- developing the patience to listen to yourself and your baby
- taking these natural skills with you at all times.
Brahm’s book, ‘Meditation for Motherhood: Gentle Zen Meditation for Conception, Pregnancy and Birth’. was recently released. The following testimonials are extracts from those within the book.
‘Reading and practising the Zen meditation techniques in Meditation for Motherhood: Gentle Zen Meditation for Conception, Pregnancy and Birth, can allow the tectonic plates of your lives to move without earthquake damage. The sound information about the foetus and baby, the lucid explanation of the relevance and techniques of Zen meditation, and the loving energy of Brahm’s compassion will give new parents much of what they need to embrace and enjoy the event and its aftermath.’
Dr Howard Chilton MBBS MRCP(UK) DCH – Neonatal Paediatrician (Prince of Wales Hospital, Royal Hospital for Women, Sydney Children’s Hospital) – author of the bestseller ‘Baby On Board’, ‘The New Baby Book’ and ‘Babies from Top to Bottom’.
‘An absolutely brilliant book and a must-read for anyone who will be experiencing the blessing of childbirth. Should you be experiencing pregnancy, this book will be your lamp and its pages will illuminate the pathway ahead and ensure a peaceful pregnancy. It is a rich tapestry of research and knowledge that Brahm has woven together as a gift to those who read it.’

‘I particularly applaud and appreciate Brahm’s new book Meditation for Motherhood: Gentle Zen Meditation for Conception, IVF, Pregnancy and Birth,going beyond the classic three trimesters of pregnancy and birth and taking his wisdom into the crucial minutes, hours, days and weeks following delivery. It provides a deeply welcome, calming and credible alternative for so many mothers who experience a roller-coaster of emotions resulting from today’s inevitable bombardment of conflicting advice. I know that having such a valuable ‘tool kit’ will prove invaluable to women around the world experiencing any of the stages of the motherhood journey.'
Elvessa Marshall, Project Co-ordinator, Cancer Institute of Australia.
Brahm’s vast practical experience and insight, reflected in Meditation for Motherhood: Gentle Zen Meditation for Conception, Pregnancy and Birth,offers mothers-to-be a book that is far from being another stress- and guilt-inducing advice tome for pregnant women. Instead, this book emphasizes how much we already know, deep inside ourselves, and gives practical tools on accessing that reservoir of knowledge, compassion and wisdom. I believe it will prove to be hugely valuable to readers – whatever stage they’ve reached in the journey of motherhood.’
Hannah James – Chief Sub-editor, Sunday Style magazine.
‘Having experienced the transformational nature of Brahmasamhara’s Authentic Meditation teaching, I believe that his book, Awakening, will now unlock the therapeutic benefits of meditation for a much wider audience hungry to learn how to cope with everyday stresses. His powerful, but gentle and totally natural practices can fundamentally change us by bringing a sense of peace and awareness of the joys of life often lost in our daily ‘busyness'.
Dr Margaret Gottlieb MBBS (Hons), FRACGP, MPsychMed, FACPM, DCH
‘Brahm’s way of teaching meditation measures well against the touchstone of authenticity. He teaches no magic or mysticism and makes no claims other than, if you practise and follow this path, you will experience many good things. I certainly have found this to be so.’
Dr Bruce Coppa B.S. (Syd), B.Med. (Newc)
’I am half way through your book and it’s like reading something that someone has written about exactly what I’ve been looking for. Where the heck have you been for the last 35 years I’ve been trying to work this stuff out! I also want to tell you that your sense of humour and the way that you have written it is like having a conversation with someone. It’s very well done and keeping my attention.’
Yogi Brahmasamhara sounds very much like a Buddhist monk, yet he grew up on a remote property in South-Western New South Wales and is very much an Aussie like the rest of us. His transformation to a teacher of meditation is a fascinating tale and his book is astonishingly ‘enlightening’. We have books on meditation, but this one looks exceptional.

Inspiring Practices of Zen Meditation for Mothers-to-be
‘This book will take you on a guided journey into Authentic Meditation. Whether you are a novice or an experienced meditator, Yogi Brahmasamhara guides you step by step, from the very first ‘toe in the water’ to as far as you want to go.
Authentic Meditation is about living, and the author guides the reader in ‘Ways’ of letting go the forbidding barriers of the ‘ordinary’ to enable all who practise to unveil an awakened, naturally exhilarating engagement with life.
There are classic exercises on letting go tension, natural breathing and stilling the mind. The author enables the practising seeker to then go far beyond these core essences to a quite profound understanding of the wisdom of Authentic Meditation … and to a serene space of tranquility and stillness of being that we all crave.
Awakening is written in a warm, gentle, easy-to-read and easy-to-follow manner. This is a book on Meditation that takes people beyond where most other such books have taken them. It is a book that will be read and reread.’
