In Pema Chodron’s new work Welcoming the Unwelcome: Wholehearted Living in a Brokenhearted World, Pema offers a way to say yes to all parts of life, opening to even those situations that we find the most problematic, the most challenging. Often using her own life as as example, she helps us to make friends with ourselves and  develop compassion towards others.  She exhorts us to wake up wholeheartedly to our entire life.  Pema does provide a guide for basic sitting meditation and for techniques to develop one’s compassion.
