In this book Pema Chodron shows us how to break free of destructive patterns in our lives and experience a new sense of freedom and happiness. She helps us to see how certain habits of mind tend to "hook " us and get us stuck in states of anger, blame, self-hatred, and addiction - but the good news is that once we start to see these patterns, we can begin to change our lives for the better.

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. We reinforce our cravings, habits, and addictions by giving in to them repeatedly. Buddhist nun Pema Chodron guides us through this "sticky feeling" and explores the moments when we get hooked - and offers us a look at the freedom available when we uncover what in Tibetan is called Shenpa - and work with it intelligently and compassionately. Pema Chodron introduces us to this valuable teaching and teaches how to unravel patterns of self-denigration and develop fundamental loving-kindness, how to cultivate acceptance of your irritability, insecurity, plus the ways of recognizing, refraining, relaxing and resolving.

"The path entails uncovering three basic human qualities. These qualities have always been with us but perhaps have gotten buried and almost forgotten. They are natural intelligence, natural warmth, and natural openness. Everyone, everywhere, all over the globe, has these qualities and can call on them to help themselves and others." Pema Chodron.br>This book gives us the insights and practices we can immediately put to use in our lives to awaken these essential qualities. In her friendly and encouraging style, Pema Chodron helps us to take a bold leap toward a new way of living - one that will bring about positive transformation for ourselves and for our troubled world.
