The author of several books including When Things Fall Apart, Comfortable with Uncertainty, and The Places That Scare You, Pema Chödrön is resident teacher at Gampo Abbey monastery in Nova Scotia and a devoted student of Chögyam Trungpa and Dzigar Kongtrül. Three of her liberating audio-learning programs are collected here:
Getting Unstuck: Have you ever had an itch—and not scratched it? In the Buddhist tradition, this points to a vast paradox: that by refraining from our urge to scratch, great peace and happiness is available. On Getting Unstuck, Pema Chödrön unveils the mystery of an ineffable quality known as shenpaa pre-emotional feeling that arises in us, brings us discomfort, and causes us to react by escaping the discomfort, often with harmful habits. Pema shows us how to recognize shenpa, catch it as it appears, and develop a playful, lively curiosity toward it.
How to Meditate with Pema Chödrön: When it comes to meditation, Pema Chödrön is widely regarded as one of the world's foremost teachers. Yet she's never offered an introductory course on audio—until now. On How to Meditate with Pema Chödrön, she presents her first complete spoken-word course for those new to meditation. Includes 12 guided sitting sessions.
True Happiness: Pema Chödrön invites us to recognize and nurture our precious moments of delight, cultivating them until they become more frequent, accessible, and influential in our lives. Join this beloved teacher for seven hours of meditations and practices to dissolve the barriers of the heart, reconnect with your source of basic goodness, and cultivate an expanding sense of unconditional joy.
