Excellent!

Pema is simply one of the greatest minds of our time. This audio covers some of her older material, but expands into some new thoughts. I have most of her other audio books and this is by far...the best recording I have heard! There isn't the background noise or poor quality that is found in some of the other audio books. If you are thinking of buying any of her work or if you are new to her work then buy this one first. If you have her other work then buy it for the simply for the great quality! Lots of tools in this also. It is quite concise and great clarity on all levels. Thank you Pema...you have given so much needed wisdom.

If you are in need of healing

This set of lectures includes several guided meditations that you can use as a toolkit to help accept and abide with negative emotions, feel deeply supported and develop love and compassion for yourself and others. I listen to her instructions over and over always finding something new to deepen my practice. If you suffer from anxiety, resentment, feeling inadequate, anger, etc. these teachings and tools are a way through to light and love.

A long distance retreat

What made the experience of listening to Awakening Love the most enjoyable?

I took this audio book on holiday with me this summer and I got hooked both on Pema Chodron's teaching and her guided meditations, to the point that I kept going over the same ground again and again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

This is not fiction and there are no characters, but the concept of compassionate abiding was new to me and, I'm really glad that it has revolutionised my life.

Any additional comments?

On the background, one can hear Pema Chodron's students chuckling at her jokes, and a feeling of solidarity establishes itself between the listener and these invisible and distant people, until the listener feels part of the group on retreat.
