The Freedom to Choose Something Different Introduction

Watch a 37-minute introduction from Tibetan Buddhist teacher Pema Chodron's course The Freedom to Choose Something Different. In this introduction Chodron teaches about the various ways we get hooked in our daily life and the habitual ways we react to these moments which often lead to suffering. The course focuses on being mindful of when you are hooked and then trying to do something different to break the bad habitual reactions. Chodron touches on the subject of groundlessness and how tragedies in life can often lead us into opening our heart instead of shutting down. She tells the story of her experiences on September 11th in which she was in a meditation retreat and how the reactions to such a tragedy on a societal level frequently mirror the reactions to life's catastrophes on a personal level. Enjoy this introductory talk from one of Pema Chodron's amazing retreats. Please Note: Getting access to this free 37 minute video from Pema Chodron requires you to enter in your email address on the Sounds True website. Then they'll send you an email with a link to watch the video.
