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.

Was Learning to Stay Present worth the listening time?

Yes.

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

Pema is the best.

Pema’s combination of wisdom and humor create the best talks. I value her insight and guidance and appreciated this short yet poignant discussion.
