Practicing Peace in Times of War: A Buddhist Perspective

Practicing Peace in Times of War: A Buddhist Perspective Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“War and peace begin in the hearts of individuals,” declares Pema Chödrön at the opening of her inspiring and accessible new book. In Practicing Peace in Times of War she draws on Buddhist teachings to explore the origins of aggression and war, explaining that they lie nowhere but within our own hearts and minds. She goes on to explain that, remarkably, the way in which we as individuals respond to challenges in our everyday lives can mean the difference between perpetuating a culture of violence or creating a new culture of compassion.

With war and violence flaring all over the world, from Iraq to Darfur to London, most of us are left feeling utterly helpless. In this audiobook Pema Chödrön insists that our world will begin to change when each of us, one by one, begins to work for peace at the level of our own behavior, our own habits of thought and action. Its never too late, she tells us, to look within and discover a new way of living.

Practicing Peace in Times of War is a short, pithy, and profound work that includes practical strategies for cultivating the seeds of peace and compassion amid lifes upsets and challenges.

Readers who appreciate Pema Chödröns books will be delighted to listen to her warm and encouraging voice. The book Practicing Peace in Times of War is based on six of Pema Chödröns public talks, and we are proud to present them to you here, in this audio edition.

2 CDs, 1 1/2 hours.
