Publisher's Summary

Join two beloved spiritual luminaries for a conversation full of kinship, laughter, and joyful truths

What do a Jesuit priest and a Buddhist nun have in common? It may sound like the opening to a joke, but it’s actually the question that initiated an extraordinary spiritual collaboration.

Father Greg Boyle and Pema Chödrön came together in a night of interfaith conversation for a great cause: aiding Homeboy Industries, the world’s largest rehabilitation, re-entry, and job training program for former gang members. Originally founded by Father Greg in 1992, Homeboy Industries has helped thousands of people find renewed hope after leaving gang life.

Now, Father Greg and Pema present Creating a Culture of Tenderness, an audio program devoted to what it means to embody one’s principles in the world. Co-teaching for the first time, here they offer an inspiring dialogue on recognizing each other’s innate humanity, the power of second chances, the profound connections between the world’s faiths, and how in service to others we can discover the most vital spiritual truths.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Humor Connects

Listening to the banter between Greg, Pema and the moderator was entertaining. In between laughter, I happily gleaned some helpful nuggets.

I like supporting Sounds True and this broadcast is also accessible on YouTube.

Big fan of both

This performance did not disappoint. I will listen over and over. There’s so much room for growth and learning, and these two are examples I aspire to follow.

Wonderful listen

I love anything by Father Greg Boyle and listening to the stories from Homeboy Industries. I always hear lovely things about Pema Chodron and adore her quotes. Definitely have to read her books now.
