It's true, as they say, that we can only love others when we first love ourselves and we can only experience real joy when we stop running from pain. The key to understanding these truisms lies in remaining open to life in all circumstances, and here Pema Chödrön shows us how. Because when we embrace the happiness and suffering, intelligence and confusion that are a natural part of life, we can begin to discover a wellspring of courageous love within our hearts.

An excellent collection of frank wisdom about how to embrace the highs and lows of life. As ever, Pema Chödrön excels at making what feels impossible to accept actually feel possible. If you enjoy this, check out Chödrön's book, Taking the Leap!

The best introduction to Buddhist practice for North Americans that I've found. Compassionate, insightful and pragmatic.
