Fail Fail again Fail Better

This small book, the latest by Pema Chodron, shocks many by its title. And yet this is the title of a graduation address she gave to Naropa University earlier this year for her grand-daughter's graduation class. It is a profound teaching, perhaps the deepest we will ever encounter in this success (whatever it means) -driven mindless culture! From the cover:

Failure opens and unguarded, vulnerable, and wide open space.

And from that space the best part of ourselves comes out.

Thanks, Mike...so glad you found it here. I think it's remarkable. Holly's grandmother is one of my long and close friends; it was she who sent it.

Thanks for posting this. I heard it read from Abbey Theatre in their "Dear Ireland" and was hoping that I would find it on the web. I thought it stole the show.
