For more than 800 years, Tibetan Buddhists have used the principles of lojong (literally, mind training) to transform difficulties into insights, and conflict into genuine communication. Lojong practice is grounded in a special meditation technique and complemented by 59 written maxims - a treasury of practical wisdom that inspires everyday awareness. Awakening Compassion is the first audio retreat on the practice of lojong taught by Pema Chödrön, the American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun and best-selling author. With an informal teaching style, both playful and insightful, Pema uses restful meditations in teaching the lojong way for turning painful emotions into the stepping stones to wisdom, compassion, and fearlessness.

    " An entertaining and realistic look at the challenges of living mindfully and compassionately in the 'real' world. Be warned though, she uses some colorful language. Certainly nothing I hadn't heard before, but shocking, to me, coming from a Buddhist nun. "

    " This woman is a treasure. She presents her lessons without judgment and offers brilliant insight. "

    " Chodron always gives me a different understanding of some of the meditation practices. Of course there is plenty to think about. Now, just to put into practice the ONE thing she says to do- change my behaviour in a reoccuring situation that is problematic. "
