GIVING OUR BEST A Retreat with Pema Chödrön on Practicing the Way of the Bodhisattva

by | Read by Pema Chödrön

Spirituality • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

The famed American Buddhist nun, Pema Chödrön, has a nice little chuckle, which features occasionally in her newest audio retreat. It's a homely sound that reminds listeners that Chödrön is a regular person, in addition to the founding director of Gampo Abbey, in Nova Scotia. The retreat, which was recorded with a live audience, focuses on the first chapter--the enlightened heart and mind--of the Buddhist classic THE WAY OF THE BODHISATTVA. Soft-voiced and friendly, using many examples from daily life, Chödrön answers questions and explores the challenges and joys of practicing compassion. She is an excellent guide, making us want to give it a try. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2014]
