DESCRIPTION

It’s one thing to hear a life-changing truth or to have a conceptual grasp on spiritual wisdom. But it’s another thing to “walk the walk”—or to put into practice the good advice we’ve been given. What does it mean to walk the walk in our everyday lives? According to Pema Chödrön, it means being down-to-earth, genuine, and perhaps most importantly, it means engaging in the teachings in order to actively confront anything and everything we’ve heretofore rejected in our attempts to find happiness. Created to help us respond with compassion and authenticity when our spiritual ideals are put to the test, Walking the Walk brings you four inspirational sessions with Pema Chödrön, as you explore:

  • Stabilizing the Mind—awareness, presence, and the foundation of the spiritual path
  • Unconditional Friendship with Yourself—getting unstuck from the patterns that create our own misery
  • Freedom from Fixed Mind—how to release biases and prejudices to revitalize your everyday experiences
  • Taking Care of One Another—essential guidance in the ability to truly be there for others

The teachings in these sessions are not about perfection or unrealistic standards. "Baby steps are okay when learning to walk the walk," explains Pema. No matter the situation you find yourself in, here is a program for remaining true to the values we seek to live by, and staying open to the kindness and love that is always available to support us.

Course objectives:

  • Discuss how the practice of "Stabilizing the Mind," through awareness and presence, is the foundation of the spiritual path.
  • Define and practice "Unconditional Friendship with Yourself" as a way to get unstuck from the patterns that create suffering, while opening to the kindness and love that is always available to support us
  • Summarize how the practice of "Freedom from Fixed Mind" invites you to release biases and prejudices to revitalize your everyday experiences
  • Discuss the practice of "Taking Care of One Another" as essential guidance in the ability to truly be there for ourselves and others

Making Unconditional Friendship with Yourself

I have never ever tired listening to dear Pema. She feels like an old friend! Love her humor, her calming presence, her down to earth way of transmitting wisdom and her ability to make us feel OK with the way we are as we make our way on this incredible journey. Thank you for making her teachings accessible. I will listen and relisten.

Heartfelt & insightful!

I love this program. I almost felt like I was right there in the room with the rest of the audience. This is the first audio program I have experienced with Pema, & I'm hooked (not very Buddhist of me, I'm sure)! I found myself even taking notes on the content at some points. I also really like the way she addresses questions from the audience at the end of each talk. Very cool. As another reviewer mentioned, somehow, Pema makes you feel like it's all OK, really.

Always good listening

just listening to one of Pema's CD's reassures you that you're ok! Gently, she then tells you how to make it so much better and suggests the techniques to do so. Fabulous stuff to live by.

Review for Walking the Walk

I'm afraid that I've gotten a bit tangled up in trying to download this. Each chapter is a separate download and takes a long time, so I haven't completed the task. Hope to do so soon.
