The Art of Getting Unhooked July 29, 2010

Before you can get unhooked, you have to recognize that you are hooked and recognize how you got hooked.

Pema Chödrön‘s birthday week (July 12 – 18, 2010) was a great opportunity to introduce my regular classes to the concept of shenpa and the practice of the 4 R’s (Recognize, Refrain, Relax, Resolve).

Check out the shenpa subpages (on the right side of the Newest Thoughts tab) to learn more.

I wanted to tell you I have appreciated the “getting unhooked” theme over the past weeks. As is always the case with your classes, you have brought a relevant concept to my practice which I have been able to carry on throughout the rest of my day, and day to day. Thanks so much!

Glad the series was helpful!

I’m amazed and inspired by all you’re doing for St. Jude Children’s Hospital on behalf of Katelyn Atwell. Can’t wait to read more about the journey!
