Pema Chodron, great American Buddhist teacher, on ‘shenpa.’ Video.

We’ve done quite a few posts on Pema Chodron before. Click. Click. Clickety. Click. There’s also this remarkable interview with her by one of my journalist idols, Bill Moyers. And here’s this bit by Oprah on Pema.

The below videos were recently posted on youtube, which has got to be the biggest, most popular TV channel at this point. Info: www.pemachodrontapes.org. Working with shenpa (getting hooked) in meditation practice, and relaxing with positive groundlessness. From Choosing a Fresh Alternative — Talk 5: Bringing Together Practice with the Teachings. Rhinebeck, NY 2004. Item A109, from Pema Chodron’s archivists, Great Path Tapes and Books. [email protected]
