Awakening Dignity: A Conversation


Sophie (Shu-chin) Wu, the co-author of Phakchok Rinpoche’s new book Awakening Dignity: A Guide to Living a Life of Deep Fulfillment, recently appeared at Charis Books in conversation with renowned Buddhist Studies scholar Jan Willis. The conversation features insight into the genesis of the book and the reason why Professor Wu feels it is particularly relevant to young people who may be struggling with issues of anxiety, depression, stress, self-criticism, fear of failure, perfectionism, and low self-esteem. In addition to the conversation, this recording features a reading from a particularly juicy section of the book where Phakchok Rinpoche discusses “sticky mind”. The reading was done by Samye Instructor, Alan Pope.
