The Wisdom of No Escape Book Description :

It’s true, as they say, that we can only love others when we first love ourselves and we can only experience real joy when we stop running from pain. The key to understanding these truisms lies in remaining open to life in all circumstances, and here Pema Chödrön shows us how. Because when we embrace the happiness and suffering, intelligence and confusion that are a natural part of life, we can begin to discover a wellspring of courageous love within our hearts.

No Time to Lose Book Description :

Over the years, Pema Chödrön's books have offered readers an exciting new way of living: developing fearlessness, generosity, and compassion in all aspects of their lives. In this new book, she invites readers to venture further along the path of the "bodhisattva warrior," explaining in depth how we can awaken the softness of our hearts and develop true confidence amid the challenges of daily living. In No Time to Lose Chödrön reveals the traditional Buddhist teachings that guide her own life: those of The Way of the Bodhisattva ( Bodhicharyavatara), a text written by the eighth-century sage Shantideva. This treasured Buddhist work is remarkably relevant for our times, describing the steps we can take to cultivate courage, caring, and joy—the key to healing ourselves and our troubled world. Chödrön offers us a highly practical and engaging commentary on this essential text, explaining how its profound teachings can be applied to our daily lives. Full of illuminating stories and practical exercises, this fresh and accessible guide shows us that the path of the bodhisattva is open to each and every one of us. Pema Chödrön urges us to embark on this transformative path today, writing, "There is no time to lose—but not to worry, we can do it."

A counselor in the depth psychology tradition shows readers there's nothing to fear from anxiety “The Wisdom of Anxiety serves as a well-lit pathway to the truth of who we are and to how to navigate life when paralyzed by anxiety, depression, overwhelm, and a sense of hopelessness.” —Alanis Morissette, singer-songwriter Work anxiety. Relationship anxiety. Social anxiety. World anxiety. Money anxiety. Health anxiety. How does reading those words make you feel? All too often, when we experience the things that give us anxiety, our first instinct is to try to run away or numb out from feeling them. But what if the unpleasant feelings you want to turn away from are actually vital sources of information about your well-being?

The Path Is the Goal Book Description :

According to the Buddha, no one can attain basic sanity or enlightenment without practicing meditation. The teachings given here on the outlook and technique of meditation provide the foundation that every practitioner needs to awaken as the Buddha did. Trungpa teaches us to let go of the urge to make meditation serve our ambition; thus we can relax into openness. We are shown how the deliberate practice of mindfulness develops into contrived awareness, and we discover the world of insight that awareness reveals. We learn of a subtle psychological stage set that we carry with us everywhere and unwittingly use to structure all our experience—and we find that meditation gradually carries us beyond this and beyond ego altogether to the experience of unconditioned freedom.

A Path of Dreams Book Description :

In a truthful tale set solidly in a foundation of analytical psychology, esoteric Buddhism and personal/ transpersonal memoir, this is a story of dreams and dreaming, spiritual quest, discernment and correct creative action. The tale unfolds across continents and over many years of study in a remote mountain temple in the very "other" culture of present day Buddhist Japan. In working with a series of unexpected dreams and events, an American Jungian therapist seeks the elusive path that will integrate her Eastern and Western minds. Leaving her home, extended family and work in California, she travels to Kyoto and ultimately, to the ancient mountain home of esoteric Buddhist practice known as Koyasan. Her journey in Japan continues for more than a decade. During those years of study and practice, she comes face to face with a multitude of cultural, spiritual and mindset issues that challenge everything she had thought of as being obvious, true, given, and unassailable. Turned upside down, she labors to develop a new and more inclusive sense of self and ultimately, a deeper sense of Self. Her journey mirrors the journeys of many modern men and women who work to integrate seemingly disparate aspects of personality, dual cultures and multiple spiritual paths.

However, the traveler provides a warning. The path to The Destination is guarded by dragons that only seek to take travelers off of the path. Armed with a scroll, a shield and a sword, Gentry sets out on his quest. As Gentry heads towards The Destination, he is expecting to face fierce dragons that he heard so many stories about growing up. He pictured himself doing battle with a large scaly beast. But what he found surprised him. The dragons were not the fire breathing animal he expected but much more deceiving. Gentry had to face each dragon before he can travel on towards The Destination or be sent back to the town as a failure. Each dragon, however, has a different name and affect on Gentry. He must use the wisdom he finds in the scroll in order to defeat each of the dragons. As we each travel the journey to success, we are often times side tracked by dragons of our own. Through this book and as you travel with Gentry, you will learn the secrets to defeating many of the common dragons that only seek to hold us back from reaching our destination.
