This Moment Is the Perfect Teacher - Pema Chodron
New audio CD from Pema Chodron and read by her. Here, she presents the heart of the transformative spiritual Tibetan practice of Lojong, or mind training.
Lojong is a powerful Tibetan Buddhist practice which is especially useful for training the mind to work with the challenges of everyday living. It teaches our hearts to soften, reframes our attitude toward difficulty, and allows us to discover a wellspring of inner strength. In this recorded retreat, Pema Chodron introduces the Lojong teachings and explains how we can apply them to any situation in our life - because, as she says, "every moment is an opportunity for awakening."
In addition to the revolutionary Lojong teachings offered here, Pema Chodron also leads a guided Tonglen meditation, a practice aimed at developing courage and cultivating compassion for ourselves and others.
