Four Keys to Courage, Strength, Spaciousness, and Joy

What would happen if we looked with fresh eyes at the struggles and "impossible situations" that we face every day—and found there four gifts that changed everything?

For decades, Pema Chödrön has brought clarity and heart to the core teachings of the Buddha, helping to make them relevant and useful in our everyday lives. With The Truth of Our Existence, she immerses us in one of Buddhism’s essential distillations of written wisdom known as The Four Marks of Existence.

These marks that shape all of us, teaches Pema Chödrön, are like forgotten gifts waiting to be found. And while they may ring familiar to some, they hold vast layers of often unrealized understanding to both new and seasoned ears alike. In this four-session learning program, Pema Chödrön illuminates for us:

  • The truth of impermanence and its power to give us strength and courage
  • The truth of egolessness—how it connects us with others and transforms fear and anger into clarity of vision
  • The truth about suffering, how we create it, and what to do when it seems unbearable
  • The truth of peace—that liberation or nirvana is real
  • How to use the wisdom of this profound sutra to touch the open and abundant expanse in which we truly dwell

With The Truth of Our Existence, Pema Chödrön invites us to see that there is, in reality, "no score to settle," and that we can step out of confusion, frustration, and fear—and into the space of heartful awareness.

As ever I love listening to Pema, love her honesty, humour and ability to skillfully connect the dharma to the grit of our every day lives. She helps me connect with a sense of gratitude for my experience of life and stay present when the going gets tough.

Pema Chodron is a skilled teacher and speaker. I have read and listened to most of her work. She has an uncanny way of speaking to me, or in your case you; in fact she has a way of explaining our connectedness with one another. This program is comforting, encouraging and insightful. I’ve listened to it several times and have recommended it to clients and friends.

This audio renders into plain everyday English what (I believe) are 'the four noble truths' of Buddhism. It goes way beyond 'merely' translating the arcane to the modern (I expect there are scholars and schools out there that would take issue (I find Buddhism very impenetrable though)) ... but this offers relevance, support, humanity, care, decency to everything about life, literally everything. It explains what it is to be human, and how it is to be human with such compassion and clarity that I know I will come back to this time and time again. Certainly if you are a fan of Pema Chodron, and I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't be, it supports any material already purchased and does not repeat or disappoint. I owe a lot to this wonderful woman.
