The seed of joy lies in the heart of suffering. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker discovered this revolutionary truth when she first heard the teachings of Pema Chodron, an American-born Buddhist nun whose popular books have helped to awaken and spread the practice of compassion in the West. On Pema Chodron and Alice Walker in Conversation, you will learn about the life-changing impact on both women of tonglen meditation: an ancient Tibetan meditation that transforms pain into compassion through the medium of your own breath. With honesty and humor, Chodron and Walker reflect on anger, joy, fear, and the union of spirituality and social activism. A deeply courageous vision of the human journey unfolds as these two thinkers from different worlds come together in a provocative exchange of insight and personal revelation. Ultimately, their combined wisdom illuminates the realm, available to us all, where the barriers between self and others dissolve. Recorded live at San Francisco's Palace of Fine Arts, Pema Chodron and Alice Walker in Conversation includes a lively question-and-answer session available nowhere else.
