This book is about saying yes to life in all its manifestations - embracing the potent mixture of joy, suffering, brilliance and confusion that characterizes the human experience. Pema Chodron shows us the profound value of our situation of "no escape" from the ups and downs of life. Pema Chodron is a spiritual teacher for anyone - whether they have a spiritual path or not. Her heartfelt advice and wisdom (developed in her 20 years of practice as a Tibetan Buddhist nun as well as her years previously as a normal "housewife and mother") should give her a wide appeal.
