by Pema Chodron.
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. She teaches that there is only one approach to suffering that is of lasting benefit: moving toward painful situations with friendliness and curiosity, relaxing into the essential groundlessness of our entire situation. It is there, in the midst of chaos, that we can discover the truth and love that are indestructible.
Pema Chodron is an American Buddhist nun; she is a teacher at Gampo Abbey, the first Tibetan monastery in North America established for Westerners.
