Publisher's Summary

For more than 800 years, Tibetan Buddhists have used the principles of lojong (literally, "mind training") to transform difficulties into insights, and conflict into genuine communication. Lojong practice is grounded in a special meditation technique and complemented by 59 written maxims - a treasury of practical wisdom that inspires everyday awareness. Awakening Compassion is the first audio retreat on the practice of lojong taught by Pema Chödrön, the American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun and best-selling author. With an informal teaching style, both playful and insightful, Pema uses restful meditations in teaching the lojong way for turning painful emotions into the stepping stones to wisdom, compassion, and fearlessness.

Pema Is A Hidden Treasure

Pema Chodron is a true hidden treasure living right here on Canada's East Coast. She brings the Buddhist teachings to life with her colorful antics that are based on her years of experiences with the practices.

I would also say to those pondering the purchase of her audio selections, that you can't go wrong in choosing any one of her precious recordings. However, you will be missing out if you don't listen to them all.
