Getting Unstuck

UnstuckI was interviewed by Kripalu blogger Jennifer Mattson for her brief article entitled How to Get Unstuck and Back to Your Practice.

“Arnie suggests looking at the resistance with kindness and genuine inquiry. Ask yourself, “What’s going on here?” What is it that you really fear, and what are you protecting yourself against? Sometimes what we most fear is simply being uncomfortable—either physically or emotionally.”

Being stuck is a pervasive issue for many of us. It can take the form of procrastination, perfectionism, or avoiding things altogether. Mindfulness can help us to see where we are stuck and what is contributing to the that stuckness. I like to think of mindfulness as a permission slip for our lives–opening us up in ways that perhaps we never imagined.

We will endeavor to get unstuck at my Kripalu workshop Mindfulness A-Z: Liberating Regret, Stuckness, and Perfectionism. I will teach tools that can help us to recognize how stuckness is holding us back and free us to be more present in the world. Join us soon: August 4-9 in Lenox, Massachusetts.
