As usual, Pemma rocks. She is the perfect compliment to the more intelectual views of tao which we find in Alan Watts' talks and books. The are saying the same thruths but from different points of view which is how we all view reality - the same reality from different points of view.
Watts' talk is usually in my head because it is so close to reality as words can come. But when things get going in situations Pemma's teaching of how to stay in the moment and "on the spot" meditaion in action helps me get though the more trying times.
This was the first CD I listened to by Pema Chodron. Listening to her CDs are part of my evening ritual to prepare for bed. Listening to Ms. Chodron speak and listening to what she has to say, has a way of restoring the "self," undoing the day's chaos, and hopefully retrains or points me towards being more mindful. I have found this CD quite useful!
