by Pema Chödrön




Overview -
The "down-to-earth, unsentimental, and] high-humored" Pema Ch dr n classic on learning to face our lives just as they are (Los Angeles Times)

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: we must learn to open ourselves up to life in all its manifestations. Here, spiritual teacher and When Things Fall Apart author Pema Ch dr n presents a uniquely practical approach to doing just that, showing us the true value in having "no escape" from the ups and downs of life.

Drawing from her own experiences with marriage, divorce, motherhood, and more, Pema reveals that when we embrace the happiness and heartache, the inspiration and confusion--all the twists and turns that are part of natural life--we can begin to discover a true wellspring of courageous love that's been within our hearts all along. As she writes in chapter four: "Our neurosis and our wisdom are made out of the same material. If you throw out your neurosis, you also throw out your wisdom."
