In this three-CD program, Pema Chodron draws on Buddhist teachings to reveal how to find real happiness amid the inevitable shocks, losses, and frustrations of living. The secret, Pema says, is to develop the courage to investigate these experiences with an open heart, instead of avoiding or reacting to them. It is only when we courageously face painful experiences head on that we will be released from the "hooks" of anger, blame, and other habitual responses that only cause suffering for ourselves and others.Here, in this recorded weekend retreat, Pema Chodron offers practical and inspiring advice on topics such as:

-Developing courage in the face of difficulty
-Stepping out of the downward spiral of self-hatred
-The revolutionary practice of patience
-Healthy and unhealthy expressions of frustrations
-How to awaken compassion for oneself and others

This audio program also includes a 24-page booklet with verses from the classic Buddhist text The Way of the Bodhisattva, reinforcing the key ideas from Pema's talk.
