On Getting Unstuck, Pema Chodron introduces a rare Tibetan teaching she received from her teacher, Dzigar Kontrul Rinpoche, and one that has become critical to her practice. Here, she unveils the mystery of an ineffable quality; a "pre-emotional" feeling that arises in us, brings us discomfort, and causes us to react by escaping the discomfort, often with harmful habits. With Getting Unstuck, she offers us a first look at "both the itch and the scratch": what Tibetan Buddhists call shenpa.

In these troubling times we all need to find a different way of relating both to ourselves and to those around us. Pema Chodron addresses this and demonstrates how we can begin with ourselves right where we are now and how this can grow into a wise compassion that can eventually reach out and touch the world.
