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

A woman of real depth
Pema Chodron clearly has a great insight into, and experience of meditation. The silences are both very appropriate and helpful in getting a sense of what meditation is all about. She has a deep understanding of what meditation is all about, and is able to convey that with her humour.
As she has such a wide awareness and consciousness, she is able to find humour in almost anything. But not a cynical humour, but a rich, loving humour.
She is a very warm and genuine person, and it is hard not to respond in kind.
If you are interested in meditation, then this is a must to experience. It will change your life for the better - if you let it.
