More than just a collection of "thoughts for the day," Comfortable with Uncertainty offers a progressive program of spiritual study with Tibetan Buddhist nun and bestselling author Pema Chödrön. Inspired by the Buddhist tradition of the 108-day retreat, Pema Chödrön offers essential concepts and practices to help listeners become a "warrior-bodhisattva," who courageously takes up the path of awakening compassion both for oneself and others.
Comfortable with Uncertainty does not assume prior knowledge of Buddhist thought or practice, making it a perfect introduction to Chödröns teaching. Passages explore topics such as loving-kindness, meditation, mindfulness, nowness, letting go, and working with fear and other painful emotions. Listeners learn practical methods for heightening awareness and overcoming habitual patterns that block compassion, while developing a working knowledge of tonglen, an on-the-spot meditation practice for easing emotional suffering both our own and others.
Comfortable with Uncertainty, like a set of traditional Buddhist prayer beads, strings together 108 gems sure to be cherished for their guidance and inspiration. Read by Sounds True publisher Tami Simon....Continua
