Where You Are
is an indispensable handbook for cultivating fearlessness and awakening a
compassionate heart. With insight and humor, Pema Chödrön presents
down-to-earth guidance on how we can "start where we are"—embracing
rather than denying the painful aspects of our lives. Pema Chödrön
frames her teachings on compassion around fifty-nine traditional Tibetan
Buddhist maxims, or slogans, such as: "Always apply only a joyful state of
mind," "Don't seek others' pain as the limbs of your own
happiness," and "Always meditate on whatever provokes resentment."
with these slogans and through the practice of meditation,
Where You Are
shows how we can all develop the courage to work with our inner pain and
discover joy, well-being, and confidence.
