Description

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 is simple but not easy: learn to open ourselves up to life in all circumstances. In this guide to true kindness for self and others, Pema Chödrön presents a uniquely practical approach to doing just that. And she reveals that when we embrace the happiness and heartache, inspiration and confusion, and all the twists and turns that are a natural part of life, we can begin to discover a true wellspring of courageous love that's been within our hearts all along.

Review quote

"Whatever your folly--anger or fear or jealousy or melancholy--Chödrön teaches that freedom from it lies in 'getting to know it completely, with some kind of softness, and learning how, once you've experienced it fully, to let go.'" --Brain Pickings "This deceptively straightforward book is an excellent introduction to the thinking of a major Western Buddhist leader who gracefully bridges contemporary life with traditional practices."--Publishers Weekly
