WELCOMING THE UNWELCOME Wholehearted Living in a Brokenhearted World

by | Read by Claire Foy

Philosophy & Religion • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

A Pema Chodron audiobook that isn't narrated by the beloved author? Say it isn't so! If you can learn to welcome her vocal absence, however, you will be rewarded with Chodron's most distilled collection of Buddhist teachings to date. British actor and narrator Claire Foy doesn't try to imitate Chodron. Her performance is pleasant, upbeat, and ample, yet it sounds more like a reading than a recounting of the lived experiences that so effectively imbue Chodron's other audio programs. Foy's calm, melodic voice is especially effective during the audiobook's three tracks of direct practices. She makes it easy for listeners to follow the instructions for basic sitting meditation/tranquility insight, the L.E.S.R. (locate, embrace, stop, remain) technique, and the Tibetan practice of Tonglen. J.T. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2019]
