Ancient insights for a Modern Audience

I’m not a Buddhist, and I’ve never really meditated. A few years back, however, a good friend gave me a book by Pema Chodron called, When Things Fall Apart. I loved it and found much of what the author had to say both interesting and helpful.

When I found more of her work on Audible, I dove in, thinking it would be something different and something perfect for audio. I was right. I’ve gone back and listened more than once and each time I learn something a little different. An American born Buddhist nun, Pema is uniquely attuned to a Western audience. She brings an authentic Buddhist perspective tailored to people like me.

These are speeches, or talks that the Author gave during a retreat. They were recorded live, so the quality is not as good as with a professional recorded and produced audiobook. There was no chance for the author to stop and start over, so it’s not perfect. Still, her voice itself and the skill she has in explaining these spiritual concepts are excellent. I’ve tried to listen to other meditation programs, thinking it would be an interesting audio experience, but this is the first I’ve been able to get all the way through. There is no hocus-pocus or uncomfortable chanting. Pema Chodron sounds like a normal woman, with great insight into these ancient ideas as reflected in today’s world. It’s a pleasure to listen to her.

This is very long, but there is very little repetition of ideas. Her insights are amazing and so helpful. This audio has so much info that I will need to listen at least one more time. This is a recording of a retreat session, so there is a bit of an issue of recording quality, but it does not take away one bit from the quality of ideas being presented.

I don't know how to rate performance. She is not performing anything. She speaks from her years of being a Buddhist nun. There is no story.
It is our life's story that she enters into. I have read many books on Buddhism without really understanding what they were teaching.
Pema Chodron has touched my heart. Now I understand.

I love Pema

I love listening to her and reading her books. But, this was a little different. It's not a book, it's a collection of teachings which means it doesn't read (or sound) like a book. The three teachings overlap each other so there is quite the duplication of content and over explanation. There is background noise and moments where Pema is working out what to say next.

Don't get me wrong, she's amazing and as a teaching series this is great. But it's not a book. It's not trying to be a book and I bought it as a book.
