React in a Positive Way to Welcome Joy and Freedom into Your LifenThis course will show you how to establish a lifelong practice that will allow you recognize patterns of behavior that are holding you back from joy and freedom.n nYou’ll learn that you do have the freedom to choose a different path for yourself, and that you do have the ability to change, especially when you implement mindfulness techniques into your life.n nPema Chodron will also teach you lovingkindness so you can be gentle to yourself, particularly as you move from a state of being hooked to negative habits, to a state of being free of those patterns.n nContents and OverviewnThis course starts off with a discussion on the Three Difficult Practices, the first of which is noticing when you’re hooked to old patterns that are holding you back from joy.n nAs you explore what it’s like being hooked (or what’s known in Tibetan Buddhism as shenpa), you’ll also learn why people become hooked in the first place. n nYou’ll begin to comprehend how to break old patterns, as well as establish a new way of reacting to situations and people in your life. n nIn order to prevent you from being too hard on yourself for any negative habits, you’ll even learn how to practice lovingkindness towards others and yourself.n nTo further understand how to unhook yourself and achieve freedom and joy, you’ll explore a mindfulness-awareness practice and a meditation that you can implement into your daily life.n nFinally, you’ll discover what it really means to choose a new alternative.n nYou’ll know exactly how to avoid following the same old chain reaction so you can become more positive, grounded, and light.n nBonus material features Glenna Olmsted, and you’ll learn even more ways to apply Pema’s teachings.n nBy the end of this course, you’ll be able to apply Pema’s teachings and practices with ease while creating a life filled with joy and freedom.n nYou’ll know how to recognize and unhook yourself from negative patterns of behavior so you can heal yourself and help others.
