Everything Matters: Beyond Meds

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others.

Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.

― Pema Chödrön

In other words Healer Heal Thyself.

These are my two favorite books by Pema, though I think everything I’ve read speaks to me:

● When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times
● The Places That Scare You: A Guide to Fearlessness in Difficult Times 

A friend gifted me these CDs and they were incredibly helpful as well:

● Unconditional Confidence: Instructions for Meeting Any Experience with Trust and Courage
