Daily Schedule for the Wisdom of Pema Chodron Summit

Day 1: Making Peace With Things As They Are

As human beings, we want to cling to what is safe and familiar, even though we know change is inevitable. Sadly, this clinging causes us a lot of pain.

Learn how we can let go of expectations and soften into a more accepting attitude towards uncertainty and change. Discover how this can help us adjust to life’s difficulties with greater joy, lightness, and ease.

Day 2: Befriending Ourselves

Despite our society’s growing awareness of the importance of self-care, many of us find loving ourselves to be the hardest task of all.

Discover how making friends with yourself is the vital first step towards loving the world. Explore ways to express tenderness and care for yourself, and discover how that is the secret to weathering difficult times with greater equanimity and grace.

Day 3: Awakening Our Hearts

Once we experience that first spark of spiritual awareness in our hearts, we need to find a way to nurture it and help it to grow into a powerful fire of compassion.

Explore how to fan the flames of bodhicitta, the awakened heart of compassion and wisdom, and consider practical ways to develop this quality within your own life.

Day 4: Working With Obstacles

When we encounter difficult emotions — fear, anger, sadness — it’s easy to shut down, numb out, or just run for the hills.

Discover how the very things that challenge us most are also golden opportunities to wake up to the truth of impermanence and connect with the life-changing power of compassion.

Day 5: Trusting Your True Nature

We often find ourselves caught up in our surface level experience — letting our thoughts and emotions define who we are.

Learn how to nurture your innate goodness — your natural compassion, wisdom, and love. When we trust our capacity for these qualities, and bring awareness to them in our day-to-day lives, we move through the world with lightness, joy, and freedom.
