    Have you ever wanted to love and connect with others more deeply... but felt that you could use a little help shedding your "emotional armor" and opening your heart? With Awakening Love, Pema Chodron invites you to start wherever you are, amid any and all of the challenges, frustrations, or fears you may be facing, and to use them as the starting place to awaken the natural and boundless capacity to give and receive love more fully.

    What would have made Awakening Love better?

    I appreciate listening to lectures, but not when it is titled as a book on tape. A very large portion of this "book on tape" are periods of silent meditation. While I appreciate the importance of silence, I feel like it is pretty misleading to list the length of this title. If I had known it was a series of lectures with meditation, I would not have bought it. I wish Pema would put her lectures online as podcasts like most teachers do, and save paid audiobooks for actual written content that has been worked on and edited. I am much happier with my Tara Brach books, which go into much more depth on the same topics.


    Would you recommend Awakening Love to your friends? Why or why not?

    no


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    again, there wasn't a narrator, there was a speaker giving a talk, which is a very different experience. I would have preferred narration.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    accurate material
