Book of the Week - "Taking the Leap"

Book of the Week - "Taking the Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears" by Pema Chodron. This book shows us how to break free of destructive patterns in our lives and experience a new sense of freedom and happiness. Drawing on the Buddhist concept of "shenpa", she helps us see how certain habits of mind tend to hook us and get us stuck in states of anger, blame, self-hatred, and addiction. The good news is - once we start to see these patterns, we begin to change our lives for better.
