Pema Chodron is an American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun and spiritual teacher who is author of many bestselling books such as ‘Living Beautifully’ and ‘When Things Fall Apart’.
Why Meditate? Pema Chodron explains that as human beings we cannot escape the fact that life will present both good times and bad times. Meditation allows us to experience what happens in our life at a particular time – cultivating a nurturing quality and perseverance toward yourself. This allows us to see, with clarity, our thoughts and emotions as they appear, thereby helping us to understand our own self more deeply.
