David will be leading us through a lively discussion on the Pema Chodron's themes, context, and more.  Taking the Leap:  Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears.  

Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears.

“Gradually we can begin to cherish the preciousness of our whole life just as it is, with its ups and downs, its failures and successes, its roughness and smoothness.” 

This book has us look at learning a new way of facing the inevitable difficulties and insecurities of our daily lives: we must learn how to stay present and open our hearts. “This path entails uncovering three basic human qualities,” explains Pema. “These qualities have always been with us but perhaps have gotten buried and almost forgotten. They are natural intelligence, natural warmth, and natural openness. Everyone, everywhere, all over the globe, has these qualities and can call on them to help themselves and others."
