Cultivating A Life of Unconditional Joy and the Power to Benefit OthersDownloadable Audiobook - 2005
What is "the root of happiness"? Pema Ch©œdr©œn--American Buddhist nun and author of the bestselling When Things Fall Apart (Shambhala, 2000)--examines this question in her new, full-length audio retreat True Happiness. "Our desire to be happy and our methods of going about it are not in synch," she explains. "We do the very things that are going to make matters worse." Ch©œdr©œn unmasks the mystery of this paradox, and reveals the difficult emotions hidden beneath all the many ways we seek to avoid feeling them. Here, she guides us through effective meditations and practices to face these feelings with courage, patience, and compassion, dissolve the barriers to our hearts, and cultivate a sense of happiness-- if only to touch upon it for moments at a time. Recorded at Gampo Abbey monastery in Nova Scotia, True Happiness gives listeners the opportunity to spend Yarne --winter retreat--at home with their beloved teacher.
