Places That Scare You
Pema Chodron

We always have a choice, Pema Chödrön teaches: We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us and make us increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder. Pema’s previous works provided the inspiration and guidance to confront the problems and difficulties that life throws our way. Here she provides the specific tools to deal with them—to cultivate the awakened, compassionate ability to open our hearts and minds to our own suffering and that of others. This wisdom is always available to us, Pema teaches, but we usually block it with habitual patterns rooted in fear. Beyond that fear lies a state of openheartedness and tenderness. $21.86 (save 27%)

Bodhisattva Mind
Pema Chodron
What if you could cultivate the mind of a bodhisattva—one who has dedicated one’s life to the benefit of others? According to Pema Chödrön—best-selling author and American-born Buddhist nun—you can. On Bodhisattva Mind, she examines sheshin, or "guarding alertness," and the other qualities of mind we need to develop on the path to enlightenment. "We all have a consciousness that knows what helps and what causes harm," teaches Ani Pema. "With this same ability, we can ‘tame our minds,’ and extricate ourselves from suffering." A practicum of insights and meditations from this cherished teacher, Bodhisattva Mind shows us how to connect with the spacious, clear, unbiased nature of our minds, and experience the joy of complete freedom. $44.07 (save 37%)

This is the path to transcending fear and anger; this is the path to a more peaceful world.

The Present Moment is a rare opportunity to learn ancient Buddhist practices directly from a living master of the tradition - practices that are life-changing today,just as they were thousands of years ago.
