Rinpoche reminds us that Change is the only thing we can be sure will happen. Change is always happening. . . . Change brings transition, but is not positive or negative. It is simply a moment of opportunity. Change provides opportunity. It is up to us what we do with it.

We all experience sudden tragic changes at some point in our lives, including the death of a family member, the loss of a job, divorce, sudden illness, and many other similar challenges. These changes generate sadness associated with loss and fear associated with the significant transitions that such changes bring to our lives. In these five talks, Rinpoche teaches us how to train our minds so that the shock of sudden change is diminished. Rinpoche then offers detailed guidance on how to skillfully process sudden changes when they occur. He teaches us that by working with sudden change in these ways, it is possible to see and seize the opportunities for positive transformation that manifest in the context of change and transition.

Even planned changes such as marriage, retirement, seeking education, and finding a job come with challenges and transition. Rinpoche provides guidance for negotiating planned changes, including preparing for the reality that planned changes do not always go the way we anticipate.

We learn that the key to working with all forms of change lies in our ability to remain present in every moment. Meditation provides the training we need to maintain present awareness.

  • MP3CD Recordings MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have MP3 or MP3-WMA clearly marked on the front of it. The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
