    There is a fundamental opportunity for happiness right within our reach, yet we usually miss it--ironically while we are caught up in attempts to escape pain and suffering. Drawn from traditional Buddhist wisdom, Pema Chodron's radical and compassionate advice for what to do when things fall apart in our lives goes against the grain of our usual habits and expectations. There is only one approach to suffering that is of lasting benefit, Pema teaches, and that approach involves moving "toward" painful situations with ... Show more

Wonderful book of life

by Tracy T on Jun 14, 2012

No Safety Net....

by PeggyO on Sep 2, 2011
