Comfortable with Uncertainty by Pema Chodron
More than just a collection of thoughts for the day it offers a progressive program of spiritual study which leads its reader through essential themes, concepts and practices on the Buddhist path.
Comfortable with Uncertainty doesn't assume any prior knowledge of Buddhist practices or thoughts which makes it a perfect introduction to Chodron's teaching. It features essential and stirring passages from her previous books and explores topics such as meditation, loving, kindness, mindfulness, 'nowness', letting go, working with fear and other painful emotions.
Over the course of this book, readers will learn practical methods for heightening awareness and overcoming habitual patterns that can block compassion.
