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,
the American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun and bestselling author presents
her first complete spoken-word course for those new to meditation.
Through five CDs of traditional insights and her
personal guidance in 12 sitting sessions, Pema Chödrön will help you
honestly meet and compassionately relate with your mind as you explore:
- The basics of mindfulness awareness practice, from proper posture to learning to settle to breathing and relaxation
- Gentleness, patience, and humor —three ingredients for a well-balanced practice
- Shamatha (or calm abiding), the art of stabilizing the mind to remain present with whatever arises
- Thoughts and emotions as "sheer delight" —instead of obstacles —in meditation
"From my own experience and from listening to many
people over the years, I've tried to offer here what I feel are the
essential points of meditation," explains Pema Chödrön. Now this beloved
voice shares with you her accessible approach —simple and down-to-earth
while informed by the highest traditions of Tibetan Buddhism —on How to Meditate with Pema Chödrön.
