Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Smile at Fear: A Retreat With Pema Chodron on Discovering Your Radiant Self-confidence [DVD] (DVD)
For the meantime, I'm not able to attend a retreat of this nature, so being able to watch/hear these talks at my own convenience is marvellous. These are wonderful talks, and I wouldn't like to put a value on them. They certainly 'speak to my condition', as the Quakers put it.
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.
