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.
So helpful. I found Don't Bite the Hook incredibly helpful, and this just reminds and reminds.... Someday this will be in my bones. Maybe. Pema Chodron is so patient with me that I can almost do that thing.
Exemplary. Save this audiobook to be listened to again and again....and again. Brings a sense of peace that is unmatched.
Pema Chodron really gets where westerners are in their heads. In this teaching, she is funny, realistic, and offers the best advice for getting unstuck with loving kindness for others and yourself.
I'm addicted to Audible. A new grandma I am responsible for my grandsons library, which reignited my interest in books.
Live recording of 6 workshops. For me personally it was yet another example of The Untethered Souls thorns or Brené Brown and shame spirals.
Over excede my expectations & the story about the movie A Beautiful Mind was amazing , the concepts of ilusional & delusional mind & the comparoson With our daily life . Also that not resisting the thoughts/ Shanpa but instead trying to be present focusing With the breath is the Door Way to enlightnen & extremely important that setting bounderies is very compasionate .... It is just great teachings ... Much blessings to Pema & audible 💖
A woman in process. I love everything that encourages love, growth and mental and spiritual health. I love everyone and everyone loves me.
Pema Chodron teaches you how to stay and deal with the pain and the feeling of being uncomfortable. Many times we want to run away and not deal with the painful yet powerful emotions that are causing distress in our lives. Pema teaches us that staying and dealing with the pain you can learn how to get unstuck and grow in the right direction.
Learning about 'Shempa' and how it works. I loved the kindness you feel hearing Pema's voice. It's a voice of love and acceptance.
This book is a Pema Chodron classic and a great introduction to Pema's teachings.
Pema's style is frank and refreshing. I would recommend listening through twice. This recording may be beneficial to listen to while taking walks or doing chores, in order to establish its message in everyday activities.
