Episode 201: Riding the Waves of Life with Jaimal Yogis

It’s safe to say that we need all the help we can get right now to stay grounded. You might remember Jaimal from episode 61 where we talked about his memoir, All Our Waves Our Water. This time around we focus on Jaimal’s newest book for kids — Mop Rides the Waves of Life.

This book is so sweet and clear and meaningful with beautiful visuals by artist Matthew Allen. It gives kids a relatable way to practice mindfulness of feelings every day. Whether you are a kid or an adult feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or just plain grumpy, Mop offers a very relevant reminder to ride the waves as they come. If you are a parent, this is definitely one you should have on your bookshelf (or gift to your child’s school library).

Jaimal and I talk about what inspired him to write his first children’s book, how Mop came to life, and we share our experiences of letting go during COVID.
