Essentially a review of familiar spiritual and metaphysical concepts, Chodron's lecture is a useful guide for beginners or a refresher course for those already "on the path." While it seems this material would have been more effective as a studio recording, rather than a meandering live lecture, Chodron knows her way around the lessons of karma, acceptance, and letting go. A more focused approach would benefit this recording, but if you're a fan of Chodron, you'll enjoy getting a sense of her personality and delivery. Production values are mediocre, as are those of most live lectures, a phenomenon that begs the Zen-like question: Why record this? D.J.B.
