DON’T BITE THE HOOK Finding Freedom From Anger, Resentment, and Other Destructive Emotions

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Pema Chödrön

Personal Growth • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

In this production, recorded during a weekend retreat before a rapt audience, Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön teaches listeners about the value of patience and how to avoid “biting the hook” of habitual anger or defensiveness. Although she’s speaking without a script, Chödrön is wonderfully articulate and never repetitive as she uses fresh, direct language. She is also a spiritual leader with a sense of humor; her intelligent voice and easy laugh make everything she has to say more inviting to consider, even when she’s talking about new approaches that run counter to our human impulses for retaliation and self-protection. Her compassion, which appears to spring from deep self-knowledge, makes her reflections all the more compelling. J.C.G.
