Pema Chdrns perennially helpful guide to transforming the pains and difficulties in our lives into opportunities for genuine joy and personal growth

We all want to be fearless, joyful, and fully alive. And we all know that its not so easy. Were bombarded every day with false promises of ways to make our lives better--buy this, go here, eat this, dont do that; the list goes on and on. But Pema Chdrn shows that, until we get to the heart of who we are and really make friends with ourselves, everything we do will always be superficial.

In this perennial self-help bestseller, Pema offers down-to-earth guidance on how we can go beyond the fleeting attempts to "fix" our pain and, instead, to take our lives as they are as the only path to achieve what we all yearn for most deeply--to embrace rather than deny the difficulties of our lives. These teachings, framed around fifty-nine traditional Tibetan Buddhist maxims, point us directly to our own hearts and minds, such as "Always meditate on whatever provokes resentment," "Be grateful to everyone," and "Dont expect applause." By working with these slogans as everyday meditations, Start Where You Are shows how we can all develop the courage to work with our own inner pain and discover true joy, holistic well-being, and unshakeable confidence.
