The reason we meditate, teaches Pema Chödrön, is because something's bothering us. Yet the root of suffering and the root of happiness are one and the same: the mind. On Working Directly with the Mind, she offers pith instructions on taming a wild mind, and becoming fully present with all of our experience.
