3/15/2015 – Pema on the root of suffering

This Sunday Payton guided our reflections on the second of Pema Chodron’s talks in the series titled “Getting Unstuck.”  Her dharma talk, titled “Exploring the Itch,” explores the key concept of Shenpa – a pre-conceptual impulse that lies beneath dukkha itself and gives rise to both suffering and unskillful strategies we resort to in order to evade suffering.  Since we are in a series of six talks, if you’d like to ‘catch up’ by listening to this talk before coming to hear the next one, click here
