What would happen if we looked with fresh eyes at the struggles and "impossible situations" that we face every day - and found there four gifts that changed everything?
For decades, Pema Chödrön has brought clarity and heart to the core teachings of the Buddha, helping to make them relevant and useful in our everyday lives. With The Truth of Our Existence, she immerses us in one of Buddhism’s essential distillations of written wisdom known as The Four Marks of Existence.
These marks that shape all of us, teaches Pema Chödrön, are like forgotten gifts waiting to be found. And while they may ring familiar to some, they hold vast layers of often unrealized understanding to both new and seasoned ears alike. In this four-session learning program, Pema Chödrön illuminates for us:
With The Truth of Our Existence, Pema Chödrön invites us to see that there is, in reality, "no score to settle", and that we can step out of confusion, frustration, and fear - and into the space of heartful awareness.

Very comforting and expansive to listen to this new recording by Pema. The subjects, the questions, the answers, suggestions -- are hard, filled with ways to try to release control in response to deep losses and sadness. Many painful situations with challenging ways to move forward. And as always, amazingly, humor and laughter woven throughout.
Just when I think I found the best Pema audible ....another pops up....and THIS ONE...may be ( again ) my favorite
WItty. enlightened..what more could someone want in a seminar
Listen ....listen in bed...listen while making supper...listen instead of the TV....it will touch You
No posturing or glib rote, just pure, spontaneous wisdom from the heart. Makes you feel whole, warts and all.
I love anything Pema! This has become my favorite audio of hers as I think with her usual humor, wisdom and relatable style she encapsulates many core teachings. A must listen.
Pema Chödrön brings humor and gentleness to the difficult places in life. This was my first exposure to Chödrön but won't be the last. Buddhist philosophy that is accessible to anyone with any background.
The truth of our existence was an outstanding listen, Pema provided practical enlightenment guidance and answer heartbreakingly real questions from the audience, in a calm gentle manner. I finished listening to this book over a course of several days, and everyday i was able to apply what I heard on on the way to work and be a better person. I highly recommend this book for anyone who's seeking enlightenment.
"Pema at her best"
Clear, concise, helpful, relevant - the expected Pema toolbox with plenty of humour and kindness
