Good morning, friends. I know that many within the community are grappling with uncertainty right now—as really, we always are—and I also know how terrifying it can feel to embrace not knowing. Whether you’re dealing with health issues, unemployment, or relationship struggles, the question of what’s going to happen can keep you up at night. And then there’s the uncertainty in the world at large.
When we’re overwhelmed by groundlessness and fear, it can feel like we’re free-falling with nothing to hold onto. We look for anything and everything to calm our fears and help us cope with the pain. If there’s one person who we can count on for support in turbulent times, it’s Pema Chödrön.
Pema Chödrön has been a guiding light for millions of people around the world. Her example has taught us to accept life’s uncertainties, find strength and compassion in the face of difficulties, and how to live with them.
As someone who’s benefitted immensely from Pema’s teachings, I’m excited to share a one-of-a-kind opportunity to hear from 11 Buddhist teachers and heart friends inspired by Pema Chödrön. In this life-changing event you’ll explore powerful teachings to transform difficulty and live fearlessly with an open and compassionate heart.
The Wisdom of Pema Chödrön: A Summit of Timeless Teachings to Awaken the Heart is a FREE online event taking place from April 7-11.

This free online summit is for you if you’ve found yourself asking:
- What can I do to get rid of my feelings of anxiety and be able to accept uncertainty?
- How can I embrace life’s ups and downs and use challenges to awaken my heart?
- Can I practice loving-kindness in times of hurt and betrayal?
- How do I make sure that my gracefulness is enhanced by undeniable, constant change?
- What can I do to bring joy into my own life and the lives of others.
As Pema says, “From great suffering can come hatred, resentment, and despair… or from great suffering can come great openness of heart and a great sense of kinship with others.”
I hope you enjoy the summit and learn new ways to cultivate openness, kinship, joy, and resilience, inspired by one of the greatest Buddhist teachers of our time, Pema Chödrön.
