    1. I listened to this while driving and did myself a disservice as I could not participate in the meditation practices Pema leads, or really dive deep into the ideas she explores here But, there were messages I really needed to hear in this audiobook, and came to love Pema s style, so will definitely be pursuing some of her other works
