    Fear and guilt are two of the greatest challenges we face on the spiritual path—but there is a way to transform these painful feelings into courageous self-acceptance. Here Pema Chödrön presents the five aphorisms for developing fearlessness that were given to Machig Lapdronma, one of Tibetan Buddhism's greatest female teachers. Pema comments on these aphorisms, holds question-and-answer sessions, and leads guided meditations to help us:

    • overcome shame and guilt
    • remain courageous in the face of pain
    • transform our relationships with difficult people
    • increase our feelings of generosity and compassion

    This program also includes a card with the five aphorisms and study.

    "Excellent production. Chödrön has a remarkable knack for making spiritual practices simultaneously insightful and funny. Though her performance is live (complete with guided meditations and questions and answers), her explanations are astonishingly clear, direct, and provocative; indeed, their unguarded, unrehearsed quality makes them more attractive." —AudioFile
