The Wisdom of No Escape

And the Path of Loving-Kindness

By Pema Chodron; Joanna Rotte (Read by)

Shambhala Audio, 9781590305812

Publication Date: September 9, 2008

Description

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. Because 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.



4 CDs, 4 ½ hours. Unabridged.
