EMOTIONAL RESCUE How to Work with Your Emotions to Transform Hurt and Confusion into Energy that Empowers You By Dzogchen Ponlop Jeremy P. Tarcher/Penguin, 2016; 272 pp., $27 (paper) Buddhist teacher Dzogchen Pon- lop Rinpoche says his father’s death was accompanied by such vivid emotions that it started him on a lifelong exploration of his emotions. In chapters such as “Mindfulness at the Kitchen Sink” and “Relax Where You Are,” Ponlop Rinpoche shows us how to navigate the highs and lows of extreme emotion through awareness and understanding, rather than simply being vic- tim to their rollercoaster states. To do so, Ponlop Rinpoche presents his three-step Emotional Rescue Plan: Mindful Gap, the practice of creating a safe distance between you and your emotions; Clear Seeing, recognizing the bigger picture; and Letting Go, which is the practice of releasing stressful physi- cal and emotional energy through exercise, relaxation, and awareness. Ponlop Rinpoche teaches that each step brings us greater insight into the wisdom offered by facing our emo- tions head-on. STARS AT DAWN Forgotten Stories of Women in the Buddha’s Life By Wendy Garling Shambhala Publications, 2016; 304 pp., $18.95 (paper) While the Buddha declared that four assemblies—laywomen, lay- men, nuns, and monks—“would become wise and accomplished through his teachings,” women practitioners have had second- class status through Buddhist history, their stories often lost or ignored. In Stars at Dawn, Bud- dhist teacher Wendy Garling embarks on a contemporary femi- nist examination of the ancient legends of the women who influ- enced the Buddha’s journey. From laywomen to nuns to female patrons, Garling weaves often overlooked stories from all tradi- tions into a narrative that challenges readers to rethink gender equality in Buddhism and empowers women to reclaim their shared Buddhist heritage.
