Publisher's Summary

It's true, as they say, that we can only love others when we first love ourselves, and we can only experience real joy when we stop running from pain. The key to understanding these truisms lies in remaining open to life in all circumstances, and here Pema Chödrön shows us how. When we embrace the happiness and suffering, intelligence and confusion that are a natural part of life, we can begin to discover a wellspring of courageous love within our hearts.

Audio quality is poor

I enjoyed it, but this audio book shouldn't be on Audible when the audio quality is so poor. It's a shame because the narrator is really very good. I think I will buy the actual book.

Life Changing Wisdom

I had been listening to Comfortable with Uncertainty repeatedly for about 5 years before this came out on Audible, and they are both amazing! A lot of this one is also in Comfortable with Uncertainty, but it is great to hear it in it's original context. These are my favourite dharma books, so dense with wisdom. Pema's writing had had a big impact on my life. She inspires me to try to turn towards uncomfortable emotions, and to experience them fully.
