From Fear to Fearlessness
Teachings on the Four Great Catalysts of AwakeningDownloadable Audiobook - 2005 | Unabridged
Where will we look when we are afraid? How do we find strength? In what can we place our trust? According to Tibetan Buddhism, there are four noble aspirations known as “The Four Great Catalysts of Awakening” that we can cultivate for strength and openness in any situation. From Fear to Fearlessness brings listeners into the company of the beloved teacher Pema Chödrön to discover and cultivate these four “immeasurables”--maitri (loving-kindness), compassion, joy, and equanimity. They are our greatest antidotes to fear, teaches Ani Pema. By practicing them, we begin to experience a supreme steadfastness and peace independent of conditions. In this moving teaching session with the bestselling author of When Things Fall Apart, listeners will learn about: • Honesty--a conduit to the parts of ourselves that need kindness and love the most • Self-acceptance and its effectiveness in overcoming the judging mind • How to cultivate and nurture desires beyond materialism, and much more. The definition of an enlightened being is one who is completely fearless, teaches Pema Chödrön. With guided meditations, rare heart teachings, and Ani Pema’s trademark humor, listeners can transition in a natural way From Fear to Fearlessness.
