Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on talks given during a one-month meditation retreat at Gampo Abbey, this book contains teachings that were intended to inspire and encourage practitioners to remain wholeheartedly awake to everything that occurs and to use the abundant material of daily life as their primary teacher and guide. The message for the retreat participants—and for the reader as well—is to be with oneself without embarrassment or harshness. This is instruction on how to love oneself and one's world.

This Shambhala Pocket Classic is an abridged version of The Wisdom of No Escape.

Synopsis:

This abridgment of Pema Chodron's Wisdom of No Escape focuses on a meditation technique that uses the ordinary events of everyday life to teach us how to engender loving-kindness toward all beings, beginning with ourselves.
