Pema is a Buddhist teacher, nun, best-selling author of many books, and mother/grandmother. Through the Pema Chodron Foundation, millions of people around the world are inspired by her message of peace in turbulent times and her encouragement to awaken with compassion. Pema is the Director of Gambo Abbey in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, a western establishment for the training of monks and nuns. Pema often teaches here through the Omega Institute of Rhinebeck, NY, and livestreams her work.
My week is always brightened by the arrival of her weekly micro-teaching from subscribing to her "Heart Advice" posts.
