Start where you are : a guide to compassionate living by Pema Chödrön( Book )
31 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 896 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Start Where You Are is an indispensable handbook for cultivating fearlessness and awakening a compassionate heart. With insight and humor, Pema Chodron, author of The Wisdom of No Escape and When Things Fall Apart, presents down-to-earth guidance on how to make friends with ourselves and develop genuine compassion toward others. The author shows how we can "start where we are" by embracing rather than denying the painful aspects of our lives. Pema Chodron frames her teachings on compassion around fifty-nine traditional Tibetan Buddhist maxims, or slogans, such as: - Always apply a joyful state of mind; -Don't seek others' pain as the limbs of your own happiness; -Always meditate on whatever provokes resentment; - Be grateful to everyone. Working with these slogans and through the practice of meditation, Start Where You Are shows how we can all develop the courage to work with our own inner pain and discover joy, well-being, and confidence

Living beautifully with uncertainty and change by Pema Chödrön( Book )
14 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"We live in difficult times. Life sometimes seems like a roiling and turbulent river threatening to drown us and destroy the world. Why, then, shouldn't we cling to the certainty of the shore--to our familiar patterns and habits? Because, Pema Chödrön teaches, that kind of fear-based clinging keeps us from the infinitely more satisfying experience of being fully alive. The teachings she presents here--known as the 'Three Commitments'--provide a wealth of wisdom for learning to step right into the river: to be completely, fearlessly present even in the hardest times, the most difficult situations. When we learn to let go of our protective patterns and do that, we begin to see not only how much better it feels to live that way, but, as a wonderful side effect, we find that we begin to naturally and effectively reach out to others in care and support."--Publisher description

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Life has a way of provoking us with traffic jams and computer malfunctions, with emotionally distant partners and crying children--and before we know it, we're upset. We feel terrible, and then we end up saying and doing things that only make matters worse. But it doesn't have to be that way, says Pema Chödrön . It is possible to relate constructively to the inevitable shocks, losses, and frustrations of life so that we can find true happiness. The key, Pema explains, is not biting the "hook" of our habitual responses. In this recorded weekend retreat, Pema draws on Buddhist teachings from The Way of the Bodhisattva to reveal how we can: stay centered in the midst of difficulty ; improve stressful relationships ; step out of the downward spiral of self-hatred ; awaken compassion for ourselves and others"--Publisher's web site
