Publisher's Summary

This audiobook by Pema Chödrön, the renowned American Buddhist nun, offers short, stand-alone sections designed to help us cultivate compassion and awareness amid the challenges of daily living. More than a collection of thoughts for the day, Comfortable with Uncertainty offers a progressive program of spiritual study, leading the listener through essential concepts, themes, and practices on the Buddhist path.

Comfortable with Uncertainty does not assume prior knowledge of Buddhist thought or practice, making it a perfect introduction to Chödrön's teachings on lovingkindness, meditation, mindfulness, "nowness", letting go, and working with fear and other painful emotions. Through the course of this audiobook, listeners will learn practical methods for heightening awareness and overcoming habitual patterns that block compassion.

Amazing concepts

This is an incredible book. It lays out some amazing concepts that are full of wisdom. Unless you’re quite familiar with Buddhism some of it may go above your head, like it did mine. This is the first book that I’ve read by this author, and Im wondering if there is another book that lays out these concepts in simple terms for beginners. I was able to grasp most of it, but it would be very helpful to have a basic understanding of these concepts first. I will be looking for other books by this author.

wonderful

I have meditated for almost 30 years and become more & more interested in Buddhist practices in the last ten. I often get restless reading or listening to books on these topics though... but this book is just wonderful in reminding me of the basic principles I want to live my life with... I have listed to the entire book 2 or 3 times. I listen to 5 - 15 minutes often before my morning meditation

Thought Provoking

I love this philosophy. I will listen to it several times. That is why I like to have books in audible that contain the Knowledge and support whenever I need it. The narrator was fine. I just put the added a little more speed to the reading.

I got this book as recommended by my spiritual leader. It really helped in relieving anxiety & revealing the truth about life. We are warriors here to bring forth joy. Thank you for these teachings. The narrator's voice was also incredible in sharing the message.
