"Meditative discipline is vital to dharma practice precisely because it leads us beyond the realm of ideas to that of felt-experience,"

Growing up happens whether we like it or not, but maturity must be cultivated.

Showing how crucial true maturity is to leading an engaged, fulfilled life, Fischer outlines the characteristics of a mature person, demonstrating how these attributes can help us successfully negotiate the challenges we face and enrich all of our relationships. Exploring essential qualities such as awareness, responsibility, humor, acceptance, and humility, Taking Our Places brings a fresh, necessary, and surprising perspective to what it means to be truly mature.
