An urge comes up, we succumb to it, and it becomes stronger. We reinforce our cravings, habits, and addictions by giving in to them repeatedly. Pema Chvdrvn guides us through this "sticky feeling" and offers us tools for learning to stay with our uneasiness, soften our hearts toward others, and ourselves and live a more peaceful life in the fullness of the present moment.

Getting Unstuck

Written by Anonymous on April 18th, 2007

  • Book Rating: 3/5

Could not listen to it. Poor quality recording. Not done in a studio, but in a lecture hall with an audience. The microphone was either placed next to a gurgling fountain, or the speaker was chewing gum throughout the lecture. I couldn't get the sound of my kids eating out of my head, and so couldn't concentrate on the speaker's words. I gave it three stars because I didn't want a poor rating to reflect the quality of the subject matter. Perhaps others are not as sensitive to the distraction as I am.
