There’s not enough about friendship out there, meaning friendship as a path of self-development and community building. This book based on the teachings of the Buddha: friendship is vitally important in Buddhism, and the Threefold Refuge consists of Buddha, Dharma (the teachings) and Sangha (a community of like-minded people). Likewise Malcolm Stern in Slay Your Dragons with Compassion also urged us to find our Sangha. Here Kate helps us to find our community, to strengthen it and then to use it to build community in a wider sense. Friendship is portrayed here as a radical practice of love, courage and trust, and it can make us feel stronger as well as pave the way for profound social change. The book is divided into seven chapters which enable us to embody our true values in all our relationships.
