Synopsis:
New paperback edition. War and peace begin in the hearts of individuals, s Pema Chodron at the opening of her new inspiring book.

She draws on Buddhist teachings to explore the roots of aggression and war, explaining that they lie nowhere but within our own hearts and minds. She goes on to explain that the way in which we as individuals respond to challenges in our everyday lives can either perpetuate a culture of violence or create a new culture of compassion. She also offers practical techniques any of us can use to work for peace in our own lives, at the level of our habits of thought and action. It's never too late, she tells us, to look within and discover a new way of living and transform not only our personal lives but our whole world.

"If we want there to be peace in the world, we have to be brave enough to soften what is rigid in our hearts, to find the soft spot and stay with it. We have to have that kind of courage and take that responsibility. That's the true practice of peace." Pema Chodron.
