Wonderful and one of my favorite teachers. Pema includes many teachings from her own teacher. What I felt was emphasized over and over was being gentle with ourselves. Any judgments we have about ourselves are opportunities for liberation. Included is an excellent interview with Pena.

I thought this CD was really well done. It was easy to follow and understand the concepts. As with all of Pema's teachings, it was very meaningful. I got so much out of it I bought one for my sister.

This is my first Sounds True Product, and I enjoyed it highly. Pema Chödrön's talk is touching and down to earth. The expression "tenderhearted vulnerability" has stayed with me.

I have 3 of the offered CD pkgs. and will now order Unconditional Confidence. Pema is my "go to" teacher who gets me back on the path every time. I am thankful every day for her teaching gifts. Namaste, Pema.

about the writings of Pema Chodron

some things she says stay with you forever and become part of you

lets read her

The content is great - Pema provides wonderful insight.

My only complaint is that the engineers at Sounds True didn't spend more time cleaning up the audio. As an older, soft-spoken woman, Pema is hard to understand many times throughout.

There is still time to remix / remaster this recording for future customers. I would recommend paying strict attention to Pema's volume at times and clean up any mumbled sections.

If I could give this 2.5 I would. I listened to From Fear to Fearlessness before this and when I popped the Unconditional Confidence CD in I thought for a minute I had accidentally put in the wrong CD - so much of it seems like a repeat.
For the money I would recommend From Fear to Fearlessness and skip this one. It includes two practices and a stronger introduction to the practices.
I'll be passing this one off to friends and family.

I really love Pema Chodron but this product didn't provide any tools which I was under the impression it did. I thought it was about how to develop confidence etc. but I found primarily it spoke about confidence and fear but no instructions or practices/lessons to develop it.
