Based on talks given during a one-month meditation retreat at Gampo Abbey, where Pema lives and teaches, this book's teachings focus on learning how to truly live in one's skin without embarrassment or harshness--and to love oneself and one's world wholeheartedly. With her characteristic softness and relatability, Pema shows how some of the most simple practices to cultivate no-escape mind can alleviate human misery at a personal and global level.
