Publisher's Summary

When it comes to meditation, Pema Chodron is widely regarded as one of the world's foremost teachers. Yet she's never offered an introductory course on audio - until now.

In How to Meditate with Pema Chodron, subtitled "A Practical Guide to Making Friends with Your Mind", the American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun and best-selling author presents her first complete spoken-word course for those new to meditation. Through traditional insights and her personal guidance in 12 sitting sessions, Chodron will help you honestly meet with, and compassionately relate to, your mind as you explore:

  • The basics of mindfulness awareness practice, from proper posture, to learning to settle, to breathing and relaxation
  • Gentleness, patience, and humor - three ingredients for a well-balanced practice
  • Shamatha (or calm abiding), the art of stabilizing the mind to remain present with whatever arises
  • Thoughts and emotions as "sheer delight" - instead of obstacles - in meditation

      "Excellent and Useful"

      This series of lectures was a wonderful introduction to meditation for me. I think my understanding of what one can aim for was greatly expanded. I enjoyed her clarity, her lightness and humor and will listen to it more than a few times. Personally, I had no problem with the sound... in fact, it felt good to hear the resonance of the room which made me feel like I was there as well.

      "Poor audio quality."

      It sounds like it was recorded from across the room with a very amateur microphone. It's hard to hear what she is saying and pay attention, let alone relax and focus. Too bad.
