A wonderful series of talks, very thought-provoking. She encourages me - to persevere in my meditation practice and to better understand aspects of the dharma through her excellent teaching.

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!

Love it. I have many of Pemas books on tape/downloads.
Some are similar in the teachings but always full of more useful teachings, besides the fact that when you listen to them there is always a new level or things you missed.
Coming closer to Ourselves is different and very helpful teaching for me.

I love Pema Chodran, but this jewel remains unopened just for now. I know that I will treasure it. I love how down to Earth Pema chodran is and her honest and practical views inter-laced with shining sacred timeless values.
Thank you. Wishing All Many Blessings

I was really expecting this to be a formal narrative course from the speaker but it was a low grade recording of a retreat that she did. Very disappointed.
It should have said if it was a recorded retreat or not on the diiscription.

I have only heard a little of this program. However, for spiritual enthusiasts everwhere I feel that you cannot go wrong with Pema Chodron. She is simply amazing.

Review for Coming Closer to Ourselves Review by Lmansur
Rating

I loved this program because, even though one of her latest, it brings in basics and believe me, we need to come back to basics all the time. That is how we get our grounding. Also, the way she brings us to basics is unique in the way she presents it this time. I suspect the basic for Pema grows, transforms and holographs as she herself transforms through her inner work.
Any work for Pema is 100% endorsed by me because it is easy to understand and the more your listen to it, the deeper in sinks in because of its depth. I recommend that you listen to any of her CD's over and over and go back when you miss something until you feel you absorbed the whole thing. Then one feels complete and happy! :)
