My last 108 poems were inspired by the teachings in this book. Every night I would read one teaching and then write a poem in response. It is a beautiful book and I highly recommend it if you’re interested in learning practical ways to bring more compassion and understanding into your life. Pema Chodron’s ability to frame esoteric concepts in a way that’s palatable for the western mind never ceases to amaze and inspire me. Thank you Pema.
