From Kaira Jewel’s website:
“In this time of unprecedented uncertainty and stress, many of us feel like the ground is being pulled out from under us. What we rely on as steady and solid is changing or may even appear to vanish. Not only are loss and separation painful, but even positive changes can create great stress. What made sense yesterday no longer makes sense and we realize that we are in need of a new vision for our lives and our world.
We Were Made for These Times offers what many of us are longing for, a path forward and a set of practices for our individual and collective healing and liberation. Deeply steeped in the wisdom of her teacher Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and her own practice, Kaira Jewel Lingo translates timeless Buddhist teachings into simple lessons to guide us.
She wrote this book to share what she learned about how to go through difficult times, when everything is shifting and we have no idea where our life is taking us. She has been through some major life changes, like ordaining as a Buddhist nun and then after 15 years living in quiet, secluded monasteries, transitioning out of monastic life and learning to recreate her life all over again, in middle age and in the middle of a world on fire. She draws on profound Buddhist wisdom that has seen her through the toughest times as well as her own lived experience.”
