    What would happen if you were to allow everything to be exactly as it is? If you gave up the need for control, and instead embraced the whole of your experience in each moment that arose? In the 14 years that he studied Zen, Adyashanti found that most seasoned meditators had used the practice as a means to a goal they never reached.

    Peter says: "Very Nice, Different and Refreshing"
    "Not As Described"
    Overall

    Difficult to follow--No true meditation practice as outlined in the publisher's description.

    For over 800 years, Tibetan Buddhists have used lojong (literally, "mind training") to transform difficulties into insights, and conflict into genuine communication. Lojong practice uses a special meditation technique and 59 written maxims - a treasury of practical wisdom that inspires everyday awareness. Awakening Compassion is the first audio retreat on the practice of lojong taught by Pema Chödrön, the American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun and best-selling author.

    "Pema Is A Hidden Treasure"
    Overall

    Pema Chodron is a true hidden treasure living right here on Canada's East Coast. She brings the Buddhist teachings to life with her colorful antics that are based on her years of experiences with the practices.

    I would also say to those pondering the purchase of her audio selections, that you can't go wrong in choosing any one of her precious recordings. However, you will be missing out if you don't listen to them all.

    Learn how to use the gift of pain with Pema Chödrön, a Buddhist nun in the Tibetan Vajrayana tradition. She teaches that it is in suffering where you will find the seeds of your awakening and that vulnerability is actually your greatest spiritual resource. You'll learn how to create your own spiritual retreat, the key teachings necessary for cultivating your own "soft spot" - the gateway to your own noble heart, the promise of the Four Limitless Ones, and the teachings on the Six Paramitas: the Buddha's own map of the journey to enlightenment. This program was recorded within the peaceful shrine room of Gampo Abbey, Chödrön's home on the cliffs of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
