Lovely Listening 27 Jan. 2007
By Neal J. Pollock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In this wonderful collection, with warmth, humor, & kindliness, Pema gives down-to-earth ways to improve life through Buddhism: meditation (mindfulness, tranquil abiding & a bit of insight), the 4 Immeasurables (loving-kindness, compassion, joy, & equanimity) Bodhichitta, & Tonglen (sending and receiving) meditation. She explores Atisha's Slogans of (cf. her "Start Where You Are"), Lojong mind training (transforming obstacles into your practice; poisons into loving kindness & compassion). Tonglen (exchanging your joy for others' suffering) including on-the-spot Tonglen (done just when suffering appears) to subdue egocentricity & develop Bodhichitta/loving kindness. She espouses having the courage to experience discomfort, to change one's worldview, & face one's emotions squarely. Ani (honorific for a Buddhist nun) Chodron's wonderful turns of phrase include: "We look for strength in what weakens us, "We've gotten really good at making matters worse, "seeking happiness without a hangover. "the places of meeting your edge are the places of tantrum, & "emptiness is openness." She also provides valuable stories such as: the man who went into a coma, was moved elsewhere, woke up thinking he was dead, & lived the rest of is life that way.

She points out where her master, Trungpa Rinpoche digressed from the literal meanings of some of these practices & some changes suggested by the great 14th century master, Longchenpa (Longchen Rabjam). For example, the latter suggested meditating upon equanimity to establish stability prior to radiating loving kindness etc. Embedded in the technique is to radiate each item consecutively, but building up to stronger feelings within each sending--first apply it to someone you care about, then a neutral person, then someone you mildly dislike & finally to everyone. For example, compassion is the wish that everyone be free of suffering & the cause of suffering. Trungpa Rinpoche's modifications include: joy being the appreciation of peoples' basic goodness (empathetic joy IMHO). Joyfully, this set solves my usual problem with Pema's sets: that they're too short! I'd also recommend the 6-tape "Awakening Compassion" & "Noble Heart" sets. If you haven't had the great uplifting joy of experiencing Pema's tapes, this collection is a fine start.

a new way to deal with the world 12 Feb. 2007
By A. B. King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I tend to take in the pain of others. Pema gives me a way of taking in the pain of living by breathing out compassion, a healthy way of handling that pain. I listen to the six CDs in rotation during my commute. I have ordered more of her CDs. No matter if the lessons are basically the same, just listening to her centers me.

If you are a religious person, please don't think that she is trying to convert you to Buddhism. She is just giving you a tool to get through the day. Nothing in her lessons contradicts any religion that believes in the practice of compassion.

Exceptional Teacher 14 May 2006
By Agent Excel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Pema Chodron has a wonderful kind voice. Her teaching on these CD is a gentle introduction to Buddhism for the lay person. I found great solace in her words and her voice. Like the Dalai Lama and Thubten Chodron, Pema Chodron's laughter is an expression of pure joy. The genuine joy that I hear in their laughters is proof that Buddhism will help me, and indeed it has helped me.

This package contains three of her works. It is cheaper than getting them individually.

Pema's soothing voice and universal wisdom is an excellent anecdot for today's hectic life-style. Pema teaches us how to accept ourselves, treat ourselves with love and gentleness, how to avoid suffering and live fearlessly. This CD set is especially useful for anyone facing life-altering issues and need to redirect their lives. This set has been tremendoulsy helpful for me.

Excellent resource for building self-esteem, fearlessness and working w emotions... 24 Jun. 2007
By Patrick D. Goonan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great collection by the warm, practical and humorous Pema Chodron. I work in the psychology field and Pema Chodron shares excellent practical advice as well as practices to cultivate unconditional self-love, universal compassion, tolerance for difficult emotions and ways of transforming negative internal states to positive ones.

There is nothing esoteric about these CDs and they can be enjoyed and implimented by anyone of any faith. The Dalai Lama has been quoted as saying his religion is "loving-kindness." This book is certainly written in this spirit. If you like Pema Chodron, you may also like Cheri Huber's work. The following books are particularly good... Making a Change for Good: A Guide to Compassionate Self-Discipline, There Is Nothing Wrong with You: Going Beyond Self-Hate, Be the Person You Want to Find: Relationship and Self-Discovery and How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything: A Workbook.

Lastly, I want to mention that this set is a tremendous bargain. You get a lot of CDs with this and there is just enough overlap to develop concepts without hearing a lot of repitition. Highly recommended!
