About the Book:

ISBN: ‚Äé9781611805956

These are essential teachings for developing compassion and clarity amid the anxieties and hardships of real life. Collecting some of the most powerful passages from Pema Chödrön’s many beloved books, this compact handbook for spiritual practice is rich with inspiration and insight. Here she explores life-changing concepts, themes, and practices from the Buddhist tradition, showing how anyone (not just Buddhists) can draw from them to become more courageous, aware, and kindhearted. It includes the benefits of meditation and mindfulness, letting go of the fixations that weigh us down, working directly with fear and other painful emotions, and much more. With these teachings, Pema lays the groundwork for how we can start to overcome the habitual patterns that so often hinder compassion for ourselves and others—and that hold us back from embracing our lives joyfully and fearlessly. To anyone who ever wanted to experience true freedom, these teachings are a shining light on the path.

About Pete Blanchard:

Pete has spent most of the last 15 years studying and working in the environmental sphere. A graduate of the Presidio Graduate School's MBA in Sustainable Solutions, he has worked with various environmentally inspired entities in both the for and non-profit sectors. When not at work, he spends as much time as possible in nature — chasing waves, fish and the occasional ski day.

Why Pete Chose This Book:

American Tibetan Buddhist, author and mother, Pema Chodron’s words of wisdom have never been more useful. Comfortable with Uncertainty details 108 Buddhist teachings aimed at helping us as humans meet the challenges of daily life. Chodrons' insight is as simple as it is relevant with the level of noise emanating from our culture of the 24-hour news cycle, social media etc. In a complex world, which has become increasingly difficult to navigate with the relentless streams of mis- and disinformation, simple messages of human resilience are invaluable.
