Description

For 1,300 years, Tibetans have been practicing shamatha-vipashyana (peaceful dwelling-insight), a profound form of meditation that illuminates and purifies the obstacles to spiritual realization. Tibetan Buddhists today regard shamatha-vipashyana as both the fundamental and the most advanced spiritual practice of all.

On Pure Meditation, Pema Chödrön takes you step-by-step through this timeless and elegant meditative form. You will learn the posture that helps you relax your mind, how to use your own breath as a reminder to return to the present moment, and what to do with the many thoughts and emotions that arise during your meditation sessions.

A straightforward, authoritative resource for students at all levels, Pure Meditation is a definitive guide to the authentic Tibetan Buddhist meditation that has brought its practitioners relaxation, peace of mind, and deeper awareness for hundreds of years.

I love this program. Pema is one of the easiest speakers to listen to and her way of sharing with humor and humility is exceptional.

Solid and insightful instructions on practice and the very human obstacles our mind can produce while practicing. Pema Chodron has a way of being serious and easily understood at the same time. She uses her own life as a example to help us.
