Another Clear Sign-post from Pema for the Journey

The inner journey has many twists, turns, dead ends and distractions. This is my third "read" of Pema Chodron and in each one I have come away with guideposts, clear vision and surer footing for my own travels inward. Her manner, demeanor and quiet assurance are evident in her voice. Her ability to speak spontaneously with stories, analogies and structured technique lend confidence to my own experiences.

To be able to carry her words and her voice into my own meditations and daily life contribute to my growing confidence in my ability to find my way to peace, happiness and equinimity.

The only drawback to this book, in my mind, was the interview that was the second half of the book. I liked the idea behind the interview and some of the questions were helpful in clrarifying some of the material in the teachings. However, it became redundant and I found the interviewer's voice somewhat grating--this may be a personal preference that others might not share. I would not, however, let it stop me from reading a great lesson from a sensitive, wise teacher.

Warm and inspiring teachings for life

I am deeply grateful to Pema Chodron and the line of teachers to whom she belongs. Her books and audio recordings have supported me through difficult times and helped me move towards increasing ability to work with and learn from whatever arises in my life. Her approach is very down to earth and, though it is sometimes framed in Buddhist language, I think it will be accessible and relevant to most adults interested in developing compassion and awareness.

unconditional confidence

this is an interesting combination of teaching and interview, it has a contempoary feel to it as pema chodrun is asked to put her teachings into the context of other non dualistic thinkers of this time, i found this quite fascinating as it raised the practical application of buddhism to unhook us from our patterns and its shadow of making us identify with being meditators and attach to much importance to belief and practice as oppposed to groundlessness. But most valuable as always is the voice of gentleness and kindness against the rawness of modern times.
