What would happen if we looked with fresh eyes at the struggles and "impossible situations" that we face every day - and found there four gifts that changed everything?
For decades, Pema Chödrön has brought clarity and heart to the core teachings of the Buddha, helping to make them relevant and useful in our everyday lives. With The Truth of Our Existence, she immerses us in one of Buddhism's essential distillations of written wisdom known as The Four Marks of Existence.
These marks that shape all of us, teaches Pema Chödrön, are like forgotten gifts waiting to be found. And while they may ring familiar to some, they hold vast layers of often unrealized understanding to both new and seasoned ears alike. In this four-session learning program, Pema Chödrön illuminates for us:
With The Truth of Our Existence, Pema Chödrön invites us to see that there is, in reality, "no score to settle", and that we can step out of confusion, frustration, and fear - and into the space of heartful awareness.

Clear, concise, helpful, relevant - the expected Pema toolbox with plenty of humour and kindness
"Excellent, as always"
Very comforting and expansive to listen to this new recording by Pema. The subjects, the questions, the answers, suggestions -- are hard, filled with ways to try to release control in response to deep losses and sadness. Many painful situations with challenging ways to move forward. And as always, amazingly, humor and laughter woven throughout.
"Which is Best..who knows anymore"
Just when I think I found the best Pema audible ....another pops up....and THIS ONE...may be ( again ) my favorite
WItty. enlightened..what more could someone want in a seminar
Listen ....listen in bed...listen while making supper...listen instead of the TV....it will touch You
Lasy chapter especially wowed me. Thank you Pema. Your honesty, candor, and wisdom is remarkable.
Pema Chödrön brings humor and gentleness to the difficult places in life. This was my first exposure to Chödrön but won't be the last. Buddhist philosophy that is accessible to anyone with any background.
No posturing or glib rote, just pure, spontaneous wisdom from the heart. Makes you feel whole, warts and all.
"One of her best"
I love anything Pema! This has become my favorite audio of hers as I think with her usual humor, wisdom and relatable style she encapsulates many core teachings. A must listen.
In four hours you can gain life changing wisdom with a smile and regardless what faith you practice.
helps me to understand somethings I didn't understand before. enjoy the way she put things. Not so serious but important.
"Pema is the message"
This author doing narration makes her talks so much more authentic and genuinely enlightening. I really love her act and that behind it all that she exudes !
"Awakened and revived my soul"
Whether you have had trauma or have had other difficulties in life, this book can open up other ways of seeing you and the pain you feel. I believe I will study the teachings because there is too much that prayer or therapy alone can help. this book can change your life if you practice it.
