Let Pema Explain . . .

  • How We Get “Hooked” – Pema explains the Tibetan Buddhist notion of shenpa—the state of being “hooked” in a habit or pattern that causes us to suffer. By first noticing the tug of shenpa, we can begin to free ourselves from its grip.
  • The Power of Pause – When we are triggered, it is tempting to “scratch the itch” in order to ease the discomfort we feel. But as Pema teaches, learning to pause in the presence of shenpa leads us to the “doorway of enlightenment.”
  • Moving Beyond Hopes and Fears – To liberate ourselves from our patterns of suffering, we must bravely step into what Pema calls “positive groundlessness.” In this unfamiliar place, we are free to discover the true nature of ourselves and reality.
