Faith & Reason: Pema Chodron

  • Aired: 08/04/2006
  • 50:25
  • Rating: NR
Why does an ancient Eastern spiritual practice appeal to workaholic, frenetic, emailing, fast-talking, fast-typing, and overly stressed Americans? Pema Chodron, whose teachings and writings on meditation have helped make Buddhism accessible to a broad Western audience, talks about how her own spiritual search led her to becoming a Buddhist nun.
