We live in difficult times. Life sometimes seems like a roiling and turbulent river threatening to drown us. Why, in the face of that, shouldn't we cling for safety to the certainty of the shore-to our comfortably familiar patterns and habits? Because, Pema Ch dr n teaches, that kind of fear-based clinging leads only to even greater suffering.
Pema Ch dr n is an American Buddhist nun in the lineage of Ch gyam Trungpa. She is resident teacher at Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia, the first Tibetan monastery in North America established for Westerners. She is the author of many books and audiobooks, including the best-selling When Things Fall Apart and Don't Bite the Hook. Author Residence- Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia
