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 ChAdrAn 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.
