    Pema Chodran's teachings have the same effect as a cool glass of water on a hot day.

    Pema Chodron. No nonsense Buddhist teacher. Seriously revolutionary.

  • Emma Hempstead

    Pema Chodron. In quiet, graceful strength she teaches people to smile at fear, to experience deep compassion and to truly be there for ourselves and others. Her teachings inspired me to breathe in someone's difficult experience, to transform it and exhale compassion, healing and freedom from that experience. The practice is known as Tonglen meditation.

    Pema Chodron -- I love to listen, and read what she thinks about things. Remarkable, and life changing teachings.

  • Dara Francis Elie

    Pema Chodron is interested in helping establish the monastic tradition in the West, as well in continuing her work with Buddhists of all traditions, sharing ideas and teachings. She has written several books: “The Wisdom of No Escape”, “Start Where You Are”, “When Things Fall Apart”, “The Places that Scare You”, “No Time to Lose” and “Practicing Peace in Times of War”, and most recently, “Smile at Fear”.
