Overview

In this important and thought-provoking work, Karen Armstrong one of the most original thinkers on the role of religion in the modern world provides an impassioned and practical guide to helping us make the world a more compassionate place.
The twelve steps she suggests begin with Learn About Compassion, and close with Love Your Enemies. In between, she takes up self-love, mindfulness, suffering, sympathetic joy, the limits of our knowledge of others, and concern for everybody. She shares concrete methods to help us cultivate and expand our capacity for compassion, and provides a reading list to encourage us to hear one another s narratives. Armstrong teaches us that becoming a compassionate human being is a lifelong project and a journey filled with rewards.
