Getting Unstuck

( 5 )

Overview

Have you ever had an itch-and not scratched it? In the Buddhist tradition, this points to a vast paradox: that by refraining from our urge to "scratch," great peace and happiness is available. On Getting Unstuck, Pema Chödrön introduces a valuable teaching on what in Tibetan is called shenpa. "An urge comes up, we succumb to it, and it becomes stronger," she teaches. "We reinforce our habits and addictions by giving in to them." Now, Pema guides us through this "sticky feeling"-exploring the moments when we get ...

Overview

Have you ever had an itch-and not scratched it? In the Buddhist tradition, this points to a vast paradox: that by refraining from our urge to "scratch," great peace and happiness is available. On Getting Unstuck, Pema Chödrön introduces a valuable teaching on what in Tibetan is called shenpa. "An urge comes up, we succumb to it, and it becomes stronger," she teaches. "We reinforce our habits and addictions by giving in to them." Now, Pema guides us through this "sticky feeling"-exploring the moments when we get hooked-and offers us a look at the freedom available when we uncover shenpa, and work with it intelligently and compassionately. This full-length recording offers tools for learning to stay with our uneasiness, and shows us how to recognize shenpa, catch it as it appears, and activate the wisdom and confidence that lies beneath it.

    Excellant self-help CD

    Pema Chodrom's CDs are always very helpful & help you look inside yourself more to become more of a complete person. I was very moved by what she had to say & had very many "Ah ha" moments as I have with her other CDs. I highly recommend this CD to anyone, but especially to those dealing with getting unstuck from habitual patterns & working to stay in the present moment. She is very helpful with that.
