Great Words - Bad Sound
I've listened to many Pema recordings and am continuing to learn a great deal but the sound quality of this recording is weak at best. It sounds like it was recorded on 20 year old analog equipment in a space with no acoustic treatment. Great words; bad recording.
Pema Chodron presents her thoughts clearly and with humor. Her ideas are simple but yet incredibly inspirational. Her clarity of thought and purity comes through the recording, though the sound quality leaves something to be desired.
