This is a beautiful DVD of a retreat which cost much more than this DVD to attend. You will get to fully experience it as deeply as you want either through repeated watching or doing the exercises along with the DVD which allows time to shut off the DVD to do them. However if you want as I often do to listen to her words and insights, there are several on here including the questions and answers session that are very revealing of the practice and potential impact on ourselves as well as the world so in need.
Highly recommend for individuals as well as group usage for the exercises.
Smile at Fear, was inspirational and I continue to think of her words when I lose sight of my ultimate goal: To live a vital life. Thank you for helping all of us look inside and view our fear as a device for growth, rather than something that holds us back.
After listened to the full set of CDs, I end up going back to the last CD that summarizes them all really well, for a quick "refresher" and helpful reminders. Also I really like the guided meditation at the end of the first CD. It's very helpful to use repeatedly until one begins to become more comfortable with their own meditation practice.
I always say one can't go wrong with anything written by Pema Chodron. It was especially nice to just listen to her words this time. I felt that I could actually relate to her better after hearing her voice, her friendly, very down to earth manner, and the many humorous stories she sprinkles into her talks.
Pema is always right on target. I find listening to her talks more enjoyable than reading her books, even though they are saturated with excellent teachings, because her humor leavens the lessons.
