On this new, full-length recording, Pema Chodron, best-selling author and beloved American Buddhist nun, shows us how to recognize shenpa, catch it as it appears, and develop a playful, lively curiosity toward it. Join Pema Chodron to discover more about:
An urge comes up, we succumb to it, and it becomes stronger, teaches Pema Chodron. We reinforce our cravings, habits, and addictions by giving into them repeatedly. On Getting Unstuck, Chodron guides us through this "sticky feeling", exploring the moments when we get hooked, and offers us tools for learning to stay with our uneasiness, soften our hearts toward ourselves and others, and live a more peaceful life in the fullness of the present moment.

"Chodron demonstrates how effective the Buddhist point of view can be in bringing order into disordered lives." (Publishers Weekly)
Brilliant. Wish I could thank her in person for this amazingly clear insight. I can't believe I may actually "get it" after all these years. I will be listening to this over and over again. Extremely clear.
This book simplifies the process for giving up our weaknesses and allowing peace and harmony to begin to take root transforming us slowly but irrevocably out of our ego and into our essence through a meditative state of breathing and staying present.
I'd love to re-listen to this. She is easy to listen to and has a great sense of humor. First time I'd heard her work and now I want to hear more of her wisdom!
Can't think of any real comparisons, but I do also love Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert and The Power of Vulnerability by Brene Brown.
Good reminder to inspect and be curious about emotional and/or physical reactions so situations instead of just getting carried away by them.
Highly recommend to anyone!
This is a continual beacon of spiritual guidance. Down to earth teaching, and it gets to the core of our suffering, simply.
there is nothing to consider or ponder here....this is a deeper keeper of teaching. to be listened to over and over again. sort of 4 wheel drive for your being to keep flowing...unblocking, refriending YOUR SELF!
While framed in Buddhist ideas, the
Gentle wisdom is accessible to anyone. Pema Chodron is the Grandmother you never had.
