Format: Audio CD
"Getting Unstuck: Breaking Your Habitual Patterns and Encountering Naked Reality" is the full title of a this incredible series of 3 CD's by Pema Chodron, recorded in one of her retreats. As a student of mindfulness, I have been listening to Pema's audio recordings for almost a year and have greatly benefited from her previous teachings, especially her best selling audio package: "When Things Fall Apart". However, this new package: Getting Unstuck, which includes three CD's packed with new ideas and insights, takes her teachings to a deeper level yet. Repeated listening to these life changing teachings have had a strong impact on me and I have started applying these teachings in my everyday life.
Pema Chodron is an American Buddhist nun, teacher and author of many books and audio recordings. Having been trained in the Tibetan lineage by her main teacher Chogyam Trungpa, she is now studying with Dzigar Kongtrul who introduced her to the teachings on "Shenpa" that form the foundation of "Getting Unstuck".
Pema confesses that this new teaching based on the Tibetan concept of Shenpa, has been critical in her own practice. So what does shenpa stand for? - Essentially, it relates to urges, cravings and other undesirable habitual reactive patterns that cause us suffering. "An urge comes up, we succumb to it, and it becomes stronger," she teaches, "We reinforce our cravings, habits, and addictions by giving in to them repeatedly." Pema Chodron sheds light on that "sticky feeling" (triggered by a shenpa) that comes about as the urge arises in us and we get 'hooked'. She guides us through uncovering our negative habitual patterns and working with them compassionately and intelligently.

Pema Chodron has a rare ability - she can express the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism in terms and images that are relatable to a Western audience. While she's a highly advanced student and teacher on the subject, her lessons use the material and the experiences of the everyday, making them particularly applicable.
This recording in particular is dear to me, as the first time I listened to it, I felt she had summed up my lived experience in the first ten minutes. The rest was gravy. :)

I wish I had these CD's when I first heart about meditation. Pema describes meditation and how we are stuck with such comprehensive details but most of all, she took away for me that meditation like us is not perfect and yet whatever comes is perfect and we can always learn from it. I thought I would have to meditate for years to finally get to a peaceful, undisturbed mind and so that seemed too much of a task to undertake and never found the time ha! ha! to meditate but in fact didn't want to go through all that struggle and time for what seems years of getting not much in the end. But she convinced me that meditation for most of us will be not alway good or bad and it is what it is.
If you struggle with meditation or with feeling stuck, get her CD's they are very much worth the price and it will uplift you in so many ways.
I highly recommand them.

Pema Chodron is an outstanding teacher. Her delivery of the ancient teachings of Buddhism is honest, poignant, insightful and at times hilariously funny. She makes the Buddhist teachings utterly accessible.

Sage advice for meditators and other folks, too. Aug. 11 2005
By Jeffrey Gimble - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Pema Chodron offers some sound, beautiful ideas on how to cope with not only addictive behavior, but basically anything in life that you just plain don't like. Her lovely, grounded voice is a pleasure to listen to, she's damned funny, and I've found myself listening to the ideas on this CD over and over as I make my way through the often hostile streets of Manhattan. It's like a primer in how to stay clear and calm and grounded in life, no matter how lousy (or terrific) your circumstances may be.

Naked reality never looked so good! Jan. 14 2006
By Jill Guntur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I normally find authors audio series very disappointing. Not this one. I am a huge fan of Pema Chodron's work. She is a great example of someone willing to do the work to shift and change and create a better world around her. In typical fashion, she isn't offering you a blind eye to the painful or negative things in your life. She teaches you how to step into it and allow your own energy to shift and change the negativity. Truly an inspiring piece of work. When you do this work, reality doesn't intrude... it offers you the way out.

Extraordinary, useful, inspiring, freeing June 20 2005
By Trinity - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I became interested in Pema Chodron's teachings a few months ago, and continue to be amazed by her simple way of describing things that philosophers, psychiatrists, and academics would take volumes to hint at.

The teachings themselves I appreciate; after zillions of years of every kind of self-help known to womankind, these ideas and instructions are an enormous relief. This isn't a review of Buddhism, or this lineage within Buddhism. This isn't a review of this particular set of CDs. I wouldn't know how to do any of these things. I do know that after hearing countless talks and seminars and audiobooks of all kinds, I appreciate accuracy, clarity, generosity, and suggestions I can use immediately. I listen to these CDs over and over, and love them more every time.

Will listen to again and again. July 29 2005
By A. Omer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Getting Unstuck consists of three audio CD's recorded at Gampo Abbey. Pema Chodron is funny and full of anecdotes during each session (about 1/2 hour each).
Session One: Learning to Stay
Stop scratching, exploring the itch
Session Two: The Heart of Distraction
Introduces Shenpa, how we get hooked
Session Three: Meditation, the Path to Enlightenment
Degrees of Shenpa
Session Four: Enjoying the Process
Lightening up, making daily aspirations, and keeping a bigger perspective
Session Five: Tools for Liberation
Stop kicking the wheel (stop keeping thought momentum going)
Session Six: Taking Your Practice into the World
Coming back to the present

I would have given Getting Unstuck five stars except I didn't think the practices were as specific and different as I expected. Coming back to "thinking" and sitting with the breath are not new for me. I do enjoy making the daily aspirations so I am more aware of my thoughts throughout the day and in turn I am choosing my words more wisely too.

Enjoy these CD's as there is something for everyone regardless of where they are in their meditation practice.

Amazing advice for addictive behavior Jan. 18 2006
By Shawn Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I found this to be one of the most helpful and profound series of talks I have ever heard. Pema Chodron teaches a whole new (at least to me) approach to dealing with addictive behavior in ourselves and provides really useful and worthwhile ways of overcoming addictions. I kept going "wow" throughout the talks, and have gone back and listened to them again and again, and still find it helpful. Amazing teacher. Amazing teachings.
