Review quote

"Pema Chodron is one of those spiritual teachers who brings ancient wisdom to bear upon our daily triumphs and tragedies. . . . Incredibly wise and poignantly practical."--"Spirituality & Health " "Chodron's book is filled with useful advice about how Buddhism helps readers to cope with the grim realities of modern life, including fear, despair, rage and the feeling that we are not in control of our lives . . . Chodron demonstrates how effective the Buddhist point of view can be in bringing order into disordered lives."--"Publishers Weekly " "This is a book that could serve you for a lifetime."--"Natural Health" "As one of Pema Chodron's grateful students, I have been learning the most pressing and necessary lesson of all: how to keep opening wider my own heart."--Alice Walker
