~~What They're Saying About
Start Where You Are~~
"Pema's deep experience and her fresh way of looking at things are like mountain water -- clear and deep." ~Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart and After the Ecstasy, the Laundry.
"As one of Pema Chodron's grateful students, I have been learning the most pressing and necessary lesson of all: how to keep opening wider my own heart." ~Alice Walker
"It is a lively and accessible take on ancient techniques for transforming terror and pain into joy and compassion." ~O, the Oprah Winfrey magazine
"Pragmatic and to the point, Pema Chödrön cuts to the very heart of practice, right to the tender pink spot we want to cover over and keep safe. In the context of being kind to ourselves, Start Where You Are shows how our greatest asset is our own vulnerability that we so desperately protect. Pema Chödrön guides us to the understanding that, rather than hiding from or resisting the pain of our existence, we can learn to relax with the situation just as it is." ~ Tantra magazine
