Publisher's Summary

It's one thing to hear a life-changing truth or to have a conceptual grasp on spiritual wisdom. But it’s another thing to "walk the walk" - or to put into practice the good advice we've been given. What does it mean to walk the walk in our everyday lives? According to Pema Chödrön, it means being down-to-earth, genuine, and perhaps most importantly, it means engaging in the teachings in order to actively confront anything and everything we’ve heretofore rejected in our attempts to find happiness. Created to help us respond with compassion and authenticity when our spiritual ideals are put to the test, Walking the Walk brings you four inspirational sessions with Pema Chödrön, as you explore:


Stabilizing the Mind - awareness, presence, and the foundation of the spiritual path
Unconditional Friendship with Yourself - getting unstuck from the patterns that create our own misery
Freedom from Fixed Mind - how to release biases and prejudices to revitalize your everyday experiences
Taking Care of One Another - essential guidance in the ability to truly be there for others

The teachings in these sessions are not about perfection or unrealistic standards. "Baby steps are okay when learning to walk the walk," explains Pema. No matter the situation you find yourself in, here is a program for remaining true to the values we seek to live by, and staying open to the kindness and love that is always available to support us.

Any additional comments?

I have other Pema recordings, she's wonderful and calming, even if I'm not paying attention to her words, her voice alone, like I said is like warm honey being poured over my bitter mind.

Putting Lessons to Action

What can I say about Pema that hasn't already been said? Wonderful woman with great insight and gifted at transmitting the teachings. I like this book because she gives you practical 'to-dos' to go with the teachings. I am currently putting them to work daily.
