From the Back Cover

There is a fundamental opportunity for happiness right within our reach, yet we usually miss it – ironically, while we are caught up in attempt to escape pain and suffering. In this book, Pema Chodron's shows:
• Ways to use painful emotions to cultivate wisdom, compassion and courage
• Ways to communicate that lead to openness and true intimacy with others
• Practices for reversing our negative habitual patterns
Methods for working with chaotic situations
• Ways to cultivate compassionate, energetic social action

Recently profiled in Oprah’s O magazine, Pema Chodron is a spiritual teacher for anyone – whether they have a spiritual path or not. Her heartfelt advice and wisdom (developed in her 20 years of practice as a Tibetan Buddhist nun as well as her years previously as a normal ‘housewife and mother’) give her a wide appeal. This advice strikes just the right note, offering us comfort and challenging us to live deeply and contribute to creating a more loving world.
