A collection of personal essays about giving care, taking care, and the support required for both. Mantra weaves Weeks’s experiences of caring for her resistant mother with wisdom gleaned from resources as diverse as The Yoga Sutras and Being Mortal. Part confession, part guide, Mantra is good company for anyone on the caregiving journey. 

Denise Weeks is a former academic turned writer, copyeditor, and yoga teacher at Yoga Northwest, just around the corner from Village Books in Fairhaven. She co-leads a support group for adult children caring for a parent with dementia, and she gives care to her mother, who now lives at Silverado in Bellingham. A great believer in caring for oneself as the foundation for caring for others, when she’s not on her mat she can often be spotted walking in the woods with her Corgi and other friends.
