This audiobook is an indispensable tool for cultivating fearlessness and awakening a compassionate heart. With insight and humor, Pema Chödrön offers guidance on how to accept our flaws and embrace ourselves wholeheartedly as a prerequisite for developing compassion. She frames her teachings around fifty-nine traditional Buddhist practice slogans (called lojong in Tibetan), such as: "Always maintain only a joyful mind," and "Don't seek others' pain as the limbs of your own happiness." Working with these slogans we begin to develop the courage to face our inner pain and thereby discover a wealth of joy, well-being, and confidence.
