Publisher's Summary

Buddhism has a lot to say about suffering - and there are likely few times we suffer more intensely than when we break up with a romantic partner. It feels like you may never recover sometimes. But Lodro Rinzler has wonderfully good news for those suffering heartbreak: The 2,500-year-old teachings of the Buddha are the ultimate antidote for emotional pain. And you don't need to be a Buddhist for them to apply to you. In this short and compact first-aid kit for a broken heart, he walks you through the cause and cure of suffering, with much practical advice for self-care as you work to survive a breakup. The wisdom he presents applies to any kind of emotional suffering.

Lost Romance

Thank you Lodro!!! This was wonderful.
My heartbreak is that of a lost love. I know she is not mine and probably not even right for me but she was so much more to me in my life. I am moving on with my life but she remains in my head and heart... I still miss her so much. I downloaded the audible version and will be listening to it again. So much useful information. I have connected so much with my heartbreak and will continue to heal and be a better person. Howie

another great book by Mr. Rinzler

easy to read as Mr Rinzlers books always are. however it's not a normal book, more like a help guide. so like a first aid guide you flip to the type of heartbreak you are dealing with.

Speaks to anyone with a broken heart

I instantly connected to the book. It is so relatable and while it references Buddhism, by no means do you have to be a Buddhist to understand or appreciate the book. The author is transparent and honest! I loved it!!! I am recommending to everyone I know!!

Like talking to a friend you've known forever.

Lodro's presentation of this book feels like a conversation with a friend you've known for forever. His points of view are wise and useable in this crazy world we live in. I feel blessed for taking the time to listen.

Loved it!!!!

This book really drives it home. It made me realize the many different forms of heartbreak there are and that life is filled with heartbreaks large and small. It taught me that we do t have to run and hide but how to sit with it and work through it, and that it is part of the human condition. We are not alone. Two thumbs up.

Excellect presentation

I am grateful to Lodro's modern, light and easy way of presenting Buddhist teachings infused with the wisdom of his own life experiences. He narration of this audio book was also very well done.
Good for people just starting to explore spirituality/Buddhism/meditation, or just people wanting to find an alternative to their broken hearts.

Short & Healthy

This has been super helpful. Lodro speaks/writes with... No préjudice (if that's the right way to say that).

Although it might be hard to swallow when your heartbreak is still very raw.
