Bill Moyers: On Faith & Reason - Pema Chödrön | PBS

Duration: 03:02

Why does an ancient Eastern spiritual practice appeal to workaholic, frenetic, emailing, fast-talking, fast-typing, and overly stressed Americans? In Bill Moyers on Faith & Reason, Pema Chödrön, whose teachings and writings on meditation have helped make Buddhism accessible to a broad Western audience, talks about how her own spiritual search led her to becoming a Buddhist nun. "Everybody has the potential, without exception--every living being has the potential to awaken."
