DESCRIPTION

Finding Freedom in Our Most Difficult Circumstances

What if the full sense of our aliveness were only to be found amidst our most challenging times and difficult experiences? In pain and crisis, teaches Pema Chödrön, there lies a hidden doorway to freedom that appears to us only when we're sure that there is no way out.

In these intimate audio learning sessions, Pema Chödrön helps us distinguish the triggers or external events that we blame for our suffering from the deeper habitual patterns that feed our anger, fear, or sadness. From this understanding, we learn how to free ourselves from our propensity to suffer through the transformative awareness of impermanence—the dynamic and ever-shifting nature of both joy and suffering, self and selflessness—and the absolute and eternal flow from which all of it arises.

What is causing my pain? What will happen if I simply lean in, keep company with it, hold it with tenderness? Moment by moment, Pema supports and encourages listeners to bring an openhearted sense of curiosity and welcoming to our apparently impossible situations or unbearable relationships—to discover the deeper freedom available just beneath the surface.

For those experiencing emotional crisis, When Pain Is the Doorway provides expert guidance to help us stop, stay present, and enter into a more welcoming, spacious place of being that is our true home.

Speaks To The Depth Of Pain

This journey Ani Chodron took me with her on was deep and healing, especially when she related it to PTSD and hospice care. This CD is one that I will continue to listen to as a practice. Thank you.

Review for When Pain is the Doorway

This was a great session although the second disc, the recording wasn't so great in parts. I listened to the whole thing several times so Pema's words could sink in. Pema really made me aware of my triggers:-)

Review for When Pain is the Doorway

Perfect timing for this to appear as just lost a dear, dear friend last week.

Whatever and whenever Pema speaks on any subject it is directly to your heart. Wise words to heal and exactly the appropriate time!

I LOVE this woman!!!!!!
