Pema Chödrön - The Freedom To Love
The Freedom to Love with Pema Chödrön
A Six-Session Online Training Course
In these challenging times, are you finding it hard to be the compassionate and openhearted person you know you truly are?
Have you gotten stuck amid constant fears and frustrations that seem to never end?
Do you yearn to love and connect with others more deeply—but just can’t?
Are you struggling with matters of the heart?
In this course, you’ll learn the four limitless qualities—lovingkindness, equanimity, compassion, and joy—and how to apply them to your life. Cultivating these practices will open your heart, counter the distortions in your relationships with yourself and others, and allow you to deepen into yourself.
This course also includes working with the obstacles to the four limitless qualities—closeddownness, fear, a sense of lack or jealousy, and prejudice/bias. These obstacles are used as stepping stones to discover the four limitless qualities, which are their opposites.
A Multifaceted Course to Awaken Your
The Freedom to Love will engage you with written teachings, insightful video and audio sessions, and weekly self-reflection practices and meditations, plus two sessions recorded with Pema Chödrön answering questions from a live audience.
“Lovingkindness, compassion, joy, and acceptance—we all hold these qualities of basic goodness within,” teaches Ani Pema. “It’s our natural state. We don’t have to find or gain anything. We simply have to uncover what we already have.” In this immersive online retreat, you’ll begin to rediscover these qualities from the first session.
“When we’re not clouded by emotions, not shut down by old habits and fears, even if for a moment, we realize what’s best for ourselves. We go in the direction of healing and openness. And we discover the freedom to love.”

In the Buddhist contemplative tradition, we are taught that our fundamental state of being is one where we are wide open, awake, and possessing an immense capacity for love.

What if you chose gentle acceptance of yourself and others over harsh judgment?
What if you could learn to embrace the full spectrum of your experience with unconditional warmth, openness, and kindness?
What if you extended that love, compassion, and joyfulness to your home, your workplace, and your community—creating a ripple effect that ultimately benefits the entire globe?
By learning how to open your heart and stay present to whatever arises in your mind, you can experience these shifts—in yourself and in those around you.
My deepest hope is that you will learn how to treat yourself—and those who may be causing you frustration and suffering—with the same love and support you offer your truest friends.
And that as you begin to unravel your habitual patterns—fear of vulnerability, aversion to discomfort, nagging self-criticism—you will rediscover your true nature: one filled with lovingkindness, compassion, happiness, and limitless potential.
