There is a fundamental happiness right within our reach, yet we usually miss it--ironically, while caught up in attempts to escape pain and suffering. Pema Ch#65533;dr#65533;n's radical and compassionate advice for what to do when things fall apart in our lives goes against the grain of our usual habits and expectations and confronts us with traditional Buddhist wisdom. There is only one approach to suffering that is of lasting benefit, Pema teaches, and that approach involves moving toward painful situations to the best of our ability with friendliness and curiosity, relaxing into the essential groundlessness of our entire situation. It is there, in the midst of chaos, that we can discover the truth and love that are indestructible. Included in the book are:    *  Ways to use painful emotions to cultivate wisdom, compassion, and courage    *  Ways to communicate that lead to openness and true intimacy with others    *  Practices for reversing our negative habitual patterns    *  Methods for working with chaotic situations    *  Ways to cultivate compassionate, energetic social action
