Blessed Relief : What Christians Can Learn From Buddhists About Suffering$16.99Add to cart
This book takes you on a lively, sometimes light-hearted, journey through nine Buddhist practices that can bring “blessed relief” to a wide range of human suffering-and teaches you skills to reduce suffering in the long term for yourself and others.
The practices help you:
*Loosen the grip of suffering
*Engage and question limiting views, thoughts and opinions
*Deconstruct ten common assumptions
*Be present in each moment
*Survive emotional storms
*Develop peaceful communication skills
*Deepen communication with your partner
*Appreciate mortality and the preciousness of life
As you read the chapters and engage in each practice, you will work with your own stories of suffering-stories in which you have felt abandoned, deprived, subjugated, defective, excluded or vulnerable-and you will learn how to release yourself from suffering by investigating it with curiosity and kindness.
