Publisher's Summary

Learn how to use the gift of pain with Pema Chödrön, a Buddhist nun in the Tibetan Vajrayana tradition. She teaches that it is in suffering where you will find the seeds of your awakening and that vulnerability is actually your greatest spiritual resource. You'll learn how to create your own spiritual retreat, the key teachings necessary for cultivating your own "soft spot" - the gateway to your own noble heart, the promise of the Four Limitless Ones, and the teachings on the Six Paramitas: the Buddha's own map of the journey to enlightenment. This program was recorded within the peaceful shrine room of Gampo Abbey, Chödrön's home on the cliffs of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

Calming Effect

I continue to really enjoy this audio, although it is over 9 hours in length, I have listened to it many times over, and receive new insights each and every time. It has a calming effect which is greatly needed for many of us while we are living our lives in this intensely competitive and fast paced society! I highly recommend this audio book for anyone who is searching for ways to deal with the day to day ups and downs of life.

- Lucretia


This is a series of lectures which are presented largely "off the cuff" so to speak, and as such, there are frequent lapses in clarity. It is taken for granted that the listener is familiar with Buddhist terms, none of which are explained even in an elementary way. As a result, I frequently found myself wondering what in the world she was talking about. This being said, there were genuine moments of insight, and Pema Chodron comes across as a caring human being who appears to be devoting her life to helping others to be free from suffering. The listener is guided through various methods of meditation which I found helpful, and I did gain a sense of space and freedom beyond the din of the mind.
