Freedom to Choose Different (Pema Chodron)

Belfast Buddhist; Tami Simon (Sounds True); Kelly Ani, Dhr. Seven, Wisdom Quarterly
(April 1, 2016) "The Freedom to Choose Something Different" by American nun Pema Chödrön

Ever feel triggered, stuck in a reactive tailspin despite all efforts?
It is from this place -- this hooked feeling -- that we find ourselves responding in less than ideal ways. These are the moments when we may speak with venom, act out, or completely shut down when faced with challenging situations.
It is only later, when we’ve had the opportunity to calm down and reflect on our actions, that we wonder where we went wrong and how we could have chosen a more grounded response.

In The Freedom to Choose Something Different, Pema Chödrön examines and illuminates this nebulous process, clearly identifying where and when you have the opportunity to change your habitual response choose something different.

In this eight-part video course, Pema personally walks you through the landscape of these internal thunderstorms and guides you through the tools to cultivate inner freedom. More
