As usual Pema Chodron presents complicated inner work in a clear and interesting way. She dispels fears of being "wrong" or even "right" for that matter bringing us back to the teachings that we can practice everyday.

Pema Chodron is so down to earth, friendly, funny and full of wisdom. In this program, like many of her others, she is so relatable as she talks about meditation. Pema confirms for me the way we actually experience meditation rather than the way we "think" we should experience it. In this CD, and her others, I pick up new tools or ways of thinking about so many things!
