Getting Unstuck: Breaking Your Habitual Patterns & Encountering Naked Reality (Playaway Adult Nonfiction) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

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. In Getting Unstuck, Pema Chodron introduces a rare Tibetan teaching she received from her teacher, Dzigar Kontrul Rinpoche, and one that has become critical to her practice. Here, she unveils the mystery of an ineffable quality; a pre-emotional feeling that arises in us, brings us discomfort, and causes us to react by escaping the discomfort often with harmful habits. With Getting Unstuck, she offers us a first look at both the itch and the scratch: what Tibetan Buddhists call ... shenpa.
