Publisher's Summary

We live in difficult times. Life sometimes seems like a roiling and turbulent river threatening to drown us. Why, in the face of that, shouldn't we cling for safety to the certainty of the shore - to our comfortably familiar patterns and habits? Because, Pema Chödrön teaches, that kind of fear-based clinging leads only to even greater suffering.

In this recorded retreat, based on the program Living Beautifully with Uncertainty and Change held at Omega Institute, Pema Chödrön and her teaching assistant, Meg Wheatley, provide a wealth of wisdom for learning to step right into the river: to be completely, fearlessly present even in the hardest times, the most difficult situations. It's the secret of being fully alive. The teachings and practices they present includes:

  • A teaching based on a Native American prophecy for cultivating the ability to take nothing personally
  • A guided meditation for developing patience in the midst of irritation
  • Tips for accessing your innate strength and confidence - simply by altering your posture

Brief

This is rather brief and light on content, which is not surprising as it is a recording of talks given at a retreat. I would recommend her full books instead of this -- her voice is calming and warm, the content seems too light for me.

Pema's teachings are transformative<br />

Pema's teachings are transformative, and her unique delivery style is captivating. She talks from the heart, and you can feel she has experienced all the challenges that we as human beings go through. This audio is simply wonderful. I did not want it to end.
