In the midst of fear, anger, or sadness, the feelings we want to avoid can open the way to fearlessness, our basic goodness, and true freedom
This supportive series of talks brings us the beloved Tibetan Buddhist teacher Pema Chödrön at her best - helping to guide us back to our wisest and most heartful selves. Here, she shares three simple, time honored steps or "attitudes" to practice when we are in pain or crisis:
- Finding the stillness and space within our inner storms so that we can act rather than react
- Transforming our emotions and welcoming them as friends
- Using all of our felt experiences - positive and negative - as a direct path not only to immediate relief but to real courage, nurtured through compassion
The feelings that we want to run from, Pema Chödrön tells us, offers us the very fuel we need to grow our strength and self-acceptance. With Three Steps to Courage, listeners will learn how to do just that - with welcome support and inspiration along the way.
