Happiness is your birthright-and it is readily available at any given moment, teaches Pema Chödrön. So why do we live in such suffering?

The potential for happiness is not based on outer things- they come and go, causing us misery, she begins. We're always chasing after something, trying to avoid the difficult places. But there are a lot of small sweetnesses that we ignore because they're so fleeting.

On True Happiness, Pema Chödrön guides us through simple yet effective practices that show us how to recognize and nurture these moments of delight, cultivating them until they become more and more frequent, accessible, and real. Recorded at Gampo Abbey Monastery in Nova Scotia, True Happiness features highlights from Sounds True's full-length audio learning course of the same title, and gives you the opportunity to absorb the teachings of Pema Chödrön at your own pace.

Join this bestselling author and beloved teacher for classical meditations and practices to dissolve the barriers to your heart, reconnect with your basic goodness, and cultivate a sense of happiness-by learning to enter natural windows of spaciousness that open us to freedom.

About the Author:

Ani Pema Chödrön was born Deirdre Blomfield-Brown in 1936, in New York City. She attended Miss Porter's School in Connecticut and graduated from the University of California at Berkeley. She taught as an elementary school teacher for many years in both New Mexico and California. Pema has two children and three grandchildren.

While in her mid-thirties, Ani Pema traveled to the French Alps and encountered Lama Chime Rinpoche, with whom she studied for several years. She became a novice nun in 1974 while studying with Lama Chime in London. His Holiness the Sixteenth Karmapa came to Scotland at that time, and Ani Pema received her ordination from him.
