This is definitely a stage drama in front of a live audience; know it for what it is. As such, I found it remarkably entertaining. The skill and presence of both actors that made these two characters great is well expressed in this venue, as both are clearly having a tremendous time with the exchange. It is full of heart, wit and laughter. They play anachronistically, using the current global green issue as the form of the interaction, while incorporating many nuances from the series as tidbits to play off. I would agree it is definitely aimed at trekkers, and would be most appreciated by that crowd, but as such it is very enjoyable.
This topic is basically 'Charnal ground practice' which is interacting with/coming to terms with one's own interactions with and reaction to death. There is discussion on approaches to death and how that applies to our experience of life. It is clear that Pema is coming to terms with this subject, and this talk reflects that more than other talks which may be more concretized in regards to information. I still found it highly valuable and enjoyable.This topic is fairly short and a specific guided meditation is not included, however techniques for working with the topic are discussed, as well as experiences and approaches of people working with it. This is a lecture with some very good question and answers at the end. This is not a full retreat and so does not have the lengthy discussion with multiple meditation sessions during the lecture.I find Pema very approachable as a listener due to her humility and complete honesty. This allows me to listen to not only what she is teaching, but how she embodies walking her spiritual path.
It is in the sample recording I believe. Pema describes a hospice worker helping someone who is terrified to die, and what seems to work is telling the person to 'rest in the space' between breaths when this person is having severe difficulty breathing. She also describes her own and other's experiences working Charnal ground practice, and views of life working it -- as a way of working 'things are falling apart'.
I don't think a book would include her honest revelations 'I get panic attacks' that in some ways are so profound - she just accepts it like everything else. Those to me keep all the work and talks 'real'. I don't think that would make print in a polished book, yet it sets the ground for life's problems to be acceptable for anyone. I also find integrating this information easier listening to it versus reading it.
"Death is the paintbrush of Life"
It's a short topic (about 2 hrs). It doesn't give all the answers but does spend time there.
Very much enjoyed the content and the style of presentation. easy to follow with interesting theories.
the narration was clear.
this has NO information on kundalini. this guy doesn't know jack about chakras. as I listened, I kept thinking... is this guy for real?... then I was really sorry I wasted a credit on this. clearly he doesn't know ANYTHING.
fortunately I have experience with the genre long before running into this clown.
absolutely not. what a joke. the guy threw a bunch of letters into an eastern sounding name and thinks he knows something.
I would delete the WHOLE thing. oh wait, I already have.
this guy makes the whole genre look bad. the genre is legitimate, but this fool isn't.
I debated on this one but gave it a shot, and I could barely break from it several hours later. This narrator does an excellent job of making this book as enticing as a suspenseful murder mystery. The material is excellent, and well arranged. The author uses sample cases to explain points and a finer understanding of details. She says 1 in 25 people are sociopaths, and then she describes them as they appear to themselves, to us, and their existence and effect on society as both the weirdo on the corner and the ruthless "successful" people in many walks of life that have left large marks on the history of humanity throughout time. Definitely worth the listen.
