Publisher's Synopsis
Emily Hilburn Sell has compiled and edited 108 excerpts from Chodron's books that illustrate the art of resting in uncertainty or what is known as living the openness of the present moment and being available to others. These teachings offer key insights into ways to soften the heart. A central one is sitting meditation. Another is mind-training, which in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition includes tonglen meditation and the use of slogans to combat self-centeredness.


"Gently, conversationally, and with humor, Comfortable with Uncertainty offers strategies for seeing and thinking differently. For many people the approach is nothing less than transformational."     ~Boston Globe

"We can try to control the uncontrollable by looking for security and predictability, always hoping to be comfortable and safe. But the truth is we can never avoid uncertainty. This not-knowing is part of the adventure."
