    A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times


    by Pema Chödrön

     

    The Places That Scare You is the book chosen to accompany the Center for Spiritual Living Santa Rosa theme for November 2018.


    We always have a choice, Pema Chödrön teaches. We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us and make us increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder. Here pema provides the tools to deal with the difficulties that life throws our way. This wisdom is always available to us, she teaches, but we usually blockit with habitual patterns rooted, to accept ourselves and others complete with faults and imperfections, and to stay in the present moment by seeing through the strategies of ego that cause us to resist life as it is.

    Pema Chödrön is an American Buddhist nun and one of the foremost students of Chögyam Trungpa, the renowned Tibetan meditation master. She is the author of The Wisdom of No Escape, Start Where You Are, and the best-selling When Things Fall Apart. She is the resident teacher at Gampo Abbey, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, the first Tibetan monastery for Westerners.

    "Chödrön has once again proven herself to be one of the very best working in the field."
    —Library Journal
    "Chödrön demonstrates how effective the Buddhist point of view can be in bringing order into disordered lives."
    —Publishers Weekly
    "A lively and accessible take on ancient techniques for transfoming terror and pain into joy and compassion."
    —O: The Oprah Magazine

    Paperback Edition.
