Pema Chödrön - Awakening the Heart - 2012 Engagement Calendar


It’s helpful to always remind yourself that meditation is about opening and relaxing with whatever arises, without picking and choosing.

Like clouds in a big sky, all our thoughts are given the space to appear. If one hangs on, let it dissolve back into the big sky.

— excerpt from “When Things Fall Apart” by Pema Chödrön

Amber Lotus is blessed with the opportunity to attend a Pema workshop in New York following the National Stationary Show this week. We are looking forward to an inspiring weekend.
