Publisher's Summary

We reinforce addictions by giving into them, but what is there to do when we get that "itchy" feeling? Learning to Stay Present shares insights for peacefully refraining from the "urge to scratch." In this recording from a live event with Pema Chodron, she discusses the ineffable quality known in the Buddhist tradition as shenpam a pre-emotional feeling that arises in us, brings discomfort, and often leads to unskillful, habitual reactions.

    "STOP!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Should be free.


    If you’ve listened to books by Pema Chodron before, how does this one compare?

    Near the top. She's awesome and funny.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    N/A


    Was Learning to Stay Present worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first 34min. of her Getting Unstuck talk. I bought both that's how I know.

    "Pema pulls you in"

    Pema has a way to gently explain something that appears so complex and make you feel she understands and shares the same feelings.

    "I want more of Pema Chodron's books"

    This author was highly recommended on an Amazon page for another book on meditation. I decided to give her a try and think she is terrific. I like the content and the sound of her voice. Just listening to her makes me want to buy into what she is saying. She is very authentic and believable.

    "Stay"

    It is so hard to stay in the moment without the mind taking side trips but Pema as always makes it real, and blissful. Thank you!!
