DESCRIPTION

The reason we meditate, teaches Pema Chödrön, is because something's bothering us. Yet the root of suffering and the root of happiness are one and the same: the mind. On Working Directly with the Mind, she offers pith instructions on taming a wild mind, and becoming fully present with all of our experience.

Sounds True Pearls bring you inspirational and insightful downloadable audio sessions selected from our most popular courses. Ranging between 15–40 minutes each, Sounds True Pearls offer a concise way to explore topics from meditation and spiritual practice to mind-body healing, the art of manifestation, and more. String them on your smartphone, MP3 player, tablet device, or computer today, and you'll be ready to empower your life with the transformational teachings contained in each Sounds True Pearl.

This session is excerpted from Pema Chödrön's 5-CD program How to Meditate with Pema Chödrön.

Review for Working Directly with the Mind

For me, Ani Pema Chodron is the most relatable and clear Buddhist teacher among all of the teachers I have had retreats with and/or read. I have many of her teachings and they are all so succinct yet taught with such heart.

I have had retreats with or read his Holiness Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Jack Kornfield, Adyashanti, Sylvia Boorstein, Howard Cohn, Mark Coleman, Jon Kabat Zinn, amongst others. Pema Chodron encourages us all to embrace: fear, sorrow, loneliness, groundlessness with love and compassion in a way that is very approachable. She invites us to be fascinated, as she is, by paradox.

She tells us the realities of being on the path are incredibly difficult and takes tremendous courage but she also gives us the tools to work with if we really want to change.

As a woman, I have also found that her expression/interpretations of Buddhist teachings and her personal journey resonate more with me.

Really there are no words to express how wonderful her teachings are, and no words that reflect completely how thankful I am to her for her work and many years of teachings.

As always, Pema Chodron is right on the mark. Most of us need help with our runaway monkey minds, and she offers her usual pithy advice.
