Item Description


The author of several books including When Things Fall Apart, Comfortable with Uncertainty, and The Places That Scare You, Pema Chödrön is resident teacher at Gampo Abbey monastery in Nova Scotia and a devoted student of Chögyam Trungpa and Dzigar Kongtrül. Three of her liberating audio-learning programs are collected here by Sounds True:

Getting Unstuck: Have you ever had an itch—and not scratched it? In the Buddhist tradition, this points to a vast paradox: that by refraining from our urge to “scratch,” great peace and happiness is available. On Getting Unstuck, Pema Chödrön unveils the mystery of an ineffable quality known as shenpa—a “pre-emotional” feeling that arises in us, brings us discomfort, and causes us to react by escaping the discomfort, often with harmful habits. Pema shows us how to recognize shenpa, catch it as it appears, and develop a playful, lively curiosity toward it.

How to Meditate with Pema Chödrön: When it comes to meditation, Pema Chödrön is widely regarded as one of the world's foremost teachers. Yet she's never offered an introductory course on audio—until now. On How to Meditate with Pema Chödrön, she presents her first complete spoken-word course for those new to meditation. Includes 12 guided sitting sessions.

True Happiness: Pema Chödrön invites us to recognize and nurture our precious moments of delight, cultivating them until they become more frequent, accessible, and influential in our lives. Join this beloved teacher for seven hours of meditations and practices to dissolve the barriers of the heart, reconnect with your source of basic goodness, and cultivate an expanding sense of unconditional joy.

Sounds True was founded in 1985 by Tami Simon with a clear mission: to disseminate spiritual wisdom. Since starting out with one woman and her tape recorder, Sounds True has grown into a multimedia publishing company with a catalog of over 600 titles, including spoken-word audio, audio learning courses, books, interactive learning kits, music, and instructional DVDs. Their offerings feature some of the leading teachers and visionaries of our time and embrace the world's major spiritual traditions, as well as the arts and humanities.

"Our approach to publishing is not dependent on a single format or technology--rather, we strive with every title to preserve the essential ‘living wisdom’ of the author, artist, or spiritual teacher," says publisher Simon. Sounds True strives to create products that not only provide information to a reader or listener, but that also embody the essential quality of a wisdom transmission between a teacher and a student.

To maintain their integrity as a business and a publisher, Sounds True strives to embody the qualities of consciousness and compassion taught by their authors in the day-to-day business practices and environmental responsibility.
