Practicing Peace by Pema Chodron

Thu, 02/14/2019 - 3:52pm -- JGranatino

This slender book, a compilation of addresses by a notable pupil of the late Tibetan teacher Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, skillfully explores an urgent topic: the effect our own inner condition can have on the larger environment, the “global implications” of our own self-righteousness and lack of harmony. In one talk, the author defines peace as “softening what is rigid in our hearts.” She gives practical suggestions for taking responsibility, cultivating patience, changing unproductive habits, and compassionate abiding, reminding us that our lives offer “endless opportunities to start to do things differently.”
