Description

How to Befriend Your Most Challenging Emotions and Experiences

In challenging times, why do so many of us turn to Pema Chödrön for guidance? Many say that it’s her honest and caring way of communicating the core teachings of Buddhism - not just conceptually, but directly from her heart to ours. In these inspiring sessions, she teaches us how to give that compassion to the person we neglect most often - ourselves. With her, you will explore:

  • What to do when it feels impossible to be kind to ourselves.
  • In challenging relationships and situations, how to let go of our story and see what’s really happening.
  • Cultivating inner comfort and greater kindness toward our bodies.
  • Leaning into frustration, sadness, and fear with a spirit of trust and intimacy.
  • Many other insights and recommendations to befriend the difficult places within us.

Through gentle and clear guidance, Coming Closer to Ourselves shows us how, even in the tumult of life’s uncertainties, we can begin with a glimmer of curiosity, move closer into our experiences, and discover a place of welcome and refuge within.

This is a lecture

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a lecture in front of an audience, not a book. That said, it's nice .

Who was your favorite character and why?

Pema Chodron. I'm new to Buddism so have no insight or judgements about it. There are words anyone more familiar would certainly understand, references to other apparently famous teachers in the world yet I was able to grasp the main messages. Sit with it. Whatever discomforts you... Just sit with it. Examine things that way (instead of reaching for food, another distraction, etc.) don't block things out, just welcome everything. That's what I got out of it anyway.

What does Pema Chödrön bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A soft loving voice,& a sense of humor.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Coming Closer to Ourselves?

That where there is discomfort, therein lies an opportunity for me to learn what's really there.

Listened to at least a dozen times

This has been one of my favorite of Pema's audiobooks. She talks a lot about groundlessness, & nurturing your relationship with fear. One of my favorite phrases ((which I have written on the wall by my desk)) is "If there is PRAISE, there will be BLAME". I would recommend this book to anyone :) love you Pema!!

Helpful with addiction/recovery hurdles.

Pema's narrative is a soft voice in your ear, giving helpful information with a dose of humor all the while being humble.

Sweet, tender, accessible wisdom seasoned with hilarity

Listening to these talks by Pema which seem to be five weekly lessons in a course she taught, was an amazing, gentle way to become introduced to buddhism and provided a whole new perspective on learning versus many of the other books I've been reading by people who seem to have discovered their own approaches.

By contrast, Pema, is it gifted teacher of the already known and does a masterful job of explaining the basics of Buddhism in an easy to understand, yet complex and in-depth fashion which was replete with new insights and transmutational thoughts for me, personally.

In particular, she explores the concept of anger as wisdom often towards the end of the book. This is a profound transformation (anger into wisdom instead of destruction) that can do a world of good in this day and age.

Nuggets

My first exposure to her teachings was in "When Things Fall Apart". As with that book, in this workshop recording are golden bits of practical and clear methods of approaching every day situations. I would not recommend it as a first text, but certainly it is not necessary to be long time student to benefit. She is as charming and funny as she is open and kind.

I've come to be truly moved by her

This is a book of lectures, and the sound resonance of her voice differs from chapter to chapter.

But what she says is something I can listen to many times. It's one step on a journey of awakening and it's a beautiful one.

Maybe my favorite Pema teaching of all

Pema is so clear and approachable. Her way of talking about the Heart Sutra, the different forms of Buddhist teachings are easy to understand and her explanations of the practice of being present with strong energy are so incredibly helpful! I can't recommend this one enough if you're going through a difficult time.

Insight full and painful truths

Thes words in this audio file have been recorded during some sort of a seminar or class setting. In that way it is not really a audiobook. I would like to recommend these recordings to people who have a hard time accepting a painful reality. Pemma is a buddhist teacher that makes theoretical concepts, chrystal clear and practical.
Relatively easy to understand and learn from her experiences.

Gratitude For Pema ♡

This is my first experience in listening or reading some of Pema Chödrön's work and I really enjoyed it. This was a 5 hour speech that seems divided over a series of teachings on Buddhist philosophies. I'm not a Buddhist myself, but I am trying to learn what I can on the nature of awakening and enlightenment after having my own experiences with it and Buddhism offers some of the closest and most sensible analogies to this. Pema's voice and messages were practical and calming. I didn't understand every reference to Buddhist scripture because I am totally unfamiliar with them, but it didn't take away from my understanding or enjoyment of her own teachings. If anything they intrigued me enough to try and learn more. I related to her talks on suffering and feel she gives a solid process for encountering these thoughts and feelings with an unfolding of truth, understanding and self compassion. This is exactly the type of message I needed to hear at this point in my personal journey, where the awakening has slipped away and the self has come back with some of it's old thoughts and patterns. After listening to this, I realize I have some work ahead of me to be with this suffering and grow from it.
