Publisher's Summary

This audiobook by Pema Chödrön, the renowned American Buddhist nun, offers short, stand-alone sections designed to help us cultivate compassion and awareness amid the challenges of daily living. More than a collection of thoughts for the day, Comfortable with Uncertainty offers a progressive program of spiritual study, leading the listener through essential concepts, themes, and practices on the Buddhist path.

Comfortable with Uncertainty does not assume prior knowledge of Buddhist thought or practice, making it a perfect introduction to Chödrön's teachings on lovingkindness, meditation, mindfulness, "nowness", letting go, and working with fear and other painful emotions. Through the course of this audiobook, listeners will learn practical methods for heightening awareness and overcoming habitual patterns that block compassion.

Amazing concepts

This is an incredible book. It lays out some amazing concepts that are full of wisdom. Unless you’re quite familiar with Buddhism some of it may go above your head, like it did mine. This is the first book that I’ve read by this author, and Im wondering if there is another book that lays out these concepts in simple terms for beginners. I was able to grasp most of it, but it would be very helpful to have a basic understanding of these concepts first. I will be looking for other books by this author.

Thought Provoking

I love this philosophy. I will listen to it several times. That is why I like to have books in audible that contain the Knowledge and support whenever I need it. The narrator was fine. I just put the added a little more speed to the reading.

Disapponting. The book must be written for those well read in Buddhism. I couldn't follow the teachings.
