Cloverdale Post – use

We all know what it’s like to be triggered- to have said something we wish we hadn’t, or reacted in a way that wasn’t helpful. What if there was a way to interrupt our knee-jerk responses and make a different choice?

Each of us gets hooked in habitual ways of seeing the world, but how we respond to these situations will in large part determine how much peace and freedom we experience in our lives. These are the Tibetan teachings of shenpa, as taught by bestselling author and American Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön. In this course, Pema shares the liberating wisdom of an approach that she uses in her personal daily practice, along with tools for putting it to work in our own lives. The purpose of this course is to help you see the ways in which you get caught or “hooked” in habitual responses to life, and how you can learn to choose a “fresh alternative,” thereby experiencing a life of freedom, joy, and true happiness.
