Product Description

The Tibetan Book of the Dead is one of the greatest spiritual resources for understanding the soul’s journey beyond this life. Yet, as Pema Chödrön teaches, this brilliant text is also a source of profound wisdom for navigating the uncertainty we face each day in “the bardo of this life.” Recorded live at the Omega Institute, Embracing the Unknown gives listeners the opportunity to experience a legendary teacher’s insights on applying the empowering wisdom of a classic spiritual book to our lives now.

The fear of death is universal to our human experience—which means that dealing with questions of mortality provides a powerful crucible for embracing life’s inherent groundlessness. In these sessions, Ani Pema reveals that training our nervous system to bear uncomfortable feelings allows us to expand our capacity for compassion, inner peace, and effective action. Featuring lively Q&A sessions with the audience, Embracing the Unknown invites us to explore some of our most challenging emotions—gently guided by Pema Chödrön’s hallmark blend of insight, humor, and fearless love.
