Comfortable with Uncertainty does not assume prior knowledge of Buddhist thought or practice. It features the most essential and stirring passages from Chodron's previous books, exploring topics such as loving-kindness, meditation, mindfulness, "nowness," letting go, and working with fear and other painful emotions.
Through the course of the book, readers will learn practical methods for heightening awareness and overcoming habitual patterns that block compassion.
