The Courage of Honesty

(While away on women's retreat with Ruth Denison, I decided to lend this blog to some of my favorite Buddhist women teachers.)

Continuing to explore fear, this time with Pema Chodron:


  1. "Rather than seeing ourselves as flawed, we see ourselves as full of potential." We have to always remember this! We are all a work in progress. Whenever I feel like a spiritual failure, I always say to myself, "well, imagine where you would be without your practice!" That puts things into perspective. Lovely clip.

  2. Yes, Donna. No energy to waste in self-flagellation. Rather, to see each mistake as an other opportunity to learn, and grow.
