As usual Pema Chodron presents complicated inner work in a clear and interesting way. She dispels fears of being "wrong" or even "right" for that matter bringing us back to the teachings that we can practice everyday. (Posted on July 5, 2014)

Review for Coming Closer to Ourselves Review by Chris Gill-Lindsey

Rating

Pema Chodron is so down to earth, friendly, funny and full of wisdom. In this program, like many of her others, she is so relatable as she talks about meditation. Pema confirms for me the way we actually experience meditation rather than the way we "think" we should experience it. In this CD, and her others, I pick up new tools or ways of thinking about so many things! (Posted on January 12, 2014)

Review for Coming Closer to Ourselves Review by Diane D

Love it. I have many of Pemas books on tape/downloads.
Some are similar in the teachings but always full of more useful teachings, besides the fact that when you listen to them there is always a new level or things you missed.
Coming closer to Ourselves is different and very helpful teaching for me. (Posted on January 12, 2014)

I love Pema Chodran, but this jewel remains unopened just for now. I know that I will treasure it. I love how down to Earth Pema chodran is and her honest and practical views inter-laced with shining sacred timeless values.
Thank you. Wishing All Many Blessings
