“Buck up. “Stop feeling sorry for yourself. “Don't ruin everything. When you are anxious, sad, angry, or lonely, do you hear this self-critical voice? What would happen if, instead of fighting difficult emotions, weacceptedthem? Over his decades of experience as a therapist and mindfulness meditation practitioner, Dr. Christopher Germer has learned a paradoxical lesson: We all want to avoid pain, but letting it in--and responding compassionately to our own imperfections, without judgment or self-blame--are essential steps on the path to healing.

Free audio downloads of the meditation exercises are available at the author's website: www.chrisgermer.com.
