Summary, etc.: 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 new 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.
