Three Steps to Courage
Beloved Tibetan Buddhist teacher Pema Chödrön has a unique gift for helping those of all faiths to work with their most difficult inner and outer challenges. In this supportive series of talks, listeners will join her at her best—showing us the way back to our wisest and most heartful selves.
Here, Pema shares three simple, time-honored steps to practice when we are in pain or crisis:
- Finding the stillness and space within our inner storms so that we can act rather than react
- Using all of our felt experiences—positive and negative—as a direct path not only to immediate relief, but to real courage, nurtured through compassion
- Transforming our emotions and welcoming them as friends
