What Causes Us To Get Stuck in Patterns?

Published on: 25th May, 2022

How do we get hooked into patterns? Getting stuck keeps us distracted from the present moment as a result we fall into the habit of being controlled by our thoughts and emotions. In this episode we talk about shenpa. According to Pema Chödrön shenpa, is the urge, the hook, that triggers our habitual tendency to close down.

In her book Taking the Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears, Pema helps us to understand shenpa and how we can begin to free ourselves from it.
