478: Why You Keep Repeating Painful Patterns | Radhule Weininger
We all have long-standing painful patterns of behavior or inner storylines that can cause us to react disproportionately or inappropriately to everyday events.
Today's guest, Dr. Radhule Weininger, has a term for this. She calls them longstanding recurrent painful patterns or LRPPs.
Weininger is a clinical psychologist, psychotherapist, and teacher of Buddhist meditation and Buddhist psychology. She has a new book, Heart Medicine: How to Stop Painful Patterns and Find Peace and Freedom—at Last
In this episode we talk about:
- How to recognize a problematic pattern or when you’ve been “lrpp-ed”
- Why Dr. Weininger believes that Buddhism and western psychology, when practiced together, can help us deal with these recurring patterns
- Unpacking the word trauma
- The psychological term “mismatch” and how it relates to childhood trauma or hurt
- How to practice meditation in order to tolerate discomfort
