Description
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 Chodron 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.
5 CDs, 5 hours.
