LOVED this. Pema is my favorite. This series is down to earth and extremely helpful. If you are looking for something not so "technical" of Pema's, this is perfect.

Pema speaks from the heart in clear insightful ways. She's got the edge on translating Tibetan Buddhist concepts and approach to life for the western oriented mind with great humor as well.

Bodhisattva mind is such a solid and grounded wisdom teaching. I keep hearing the same principles, in different downloads, and I am fascinated with how interrelated and applicable they all are. Pema is a gem.

I have almost all of Pema's audio collections, and this just might be my favorite. It is profoundly beautiful and inspiring.

You can never really go wrong with Pema. Personally I didn't enjoy this format as much as some of the other Pema programs. The format here is a Uni lecture at Naropa Uni, and while it is interesting, I prefer the resort formats. But that is just my personal opinion. Great content though.

Pema is one of the most inspiring teachers you have. This is not my very favorite of her things, but I listened to every word and would recommend it to anyone.
