however, one of the lectures seems to be cut short abruptly while Pema is still talking. can anyone else testify to this, or do i have a faulty copy / dvd player. The fault is on the first disk.
if this fault does indeed feature on all the disks - due to terrible editing - then i would definitely avoid paying much more than ten pounds (i bought from an independent seller at about 12 pounds, Amazon was selling at a whopping price of about 23 pounds).
The only thing is that the second of Ani Pema's talks (the third item on the first DVD) stalls in the middle and suddenly I'm faced with the Menu. It's not earth-shattering, I can get back into it and continue with the talk, but it's a bit irritating. I'm considering having it replaced, but it could just need cleaning.
What's nice is that you don't actually need to buy Trungpa Rinpoche's book, if you have 'Shambhala' that does the trick, apparently.

After listened to the full set of CDs, I end up going back to the last CD that summarizes them all really well, for a quick "refresher" and helpful reminders. Also I really like the guided meditation at the end of the first CD. It's very helpful to use repeatedly until one begins to become more comfortable with their own meditation practice.
I always say one can't go wrong with anything written by Pema Chodron. It was especially nice to just listen to her words this time. I felt that I could actually relate to her better after hearing her voice, her friendly, very down to earth manner, and the many humorous stories she sprinkles into her talks.
LOVE HER VOICE, SENSE OF HUMOUR AND THE " PRESENTATION" -- ALTHOUGH I FELT SHE WAS SORT OF TALKING FREE FORM TO ME. ( THERE WERE OVER 3.000 ON THIS WORKSHOP WEEKEND).
I RECOMMEND THESE TAPES 100%--HAVE THEM IN THE CAR TO HELP WASH MY BRAIN OF THE GARBAGE , DAILY.
