Start Where You Are

Pema Chödrön’s Start Where You Are: A Guide to Compassionate Living

“My life has taught me to be more curious than afraid.”

Start Where You Are explores the details of tonglen meditation and how to open our hearts to lead a more empathetic and compassionate life. It goes through several mantras to help build perspective and serve as a guide to living. I learned so much more about how to meditate specifically to open up my heart and break down my walls that serve as barriers to truly feeling. It is a great guide and I recommend this read!
