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 Chödrön 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.
Pema Chödrön is an American Buddhist nun in the lineage of Chögyam Trungpa.
