  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 Chödrön 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."

On this full-length recording, Pema Chödrön - bestselling 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 Chödrön to discover more about:

  • Critical mind - how to recognize this fundamental shenpa, and approach yourself and others with a sense of humour and loving-kindness
  • Ways to unravel the patterns of self-denigration, and develop the fundamental maitri - loving-kindness - toward yourself
  • How to cultivate acceptance of your irritability, insecurities and other human traits
  • Recognition, Refrain, Relaxing, and Resolve: the four Rs of working with shenpa, and more.
