Book Club: When Things Fall Apart

“The most difficult times for many of us are the ones we give ourselves.” -Pema Chodron, When Things Fall Apart

The beautiful practicality of her teaching has made Pema Chödrön one of the most beloved of contemporary American spiritual authors among Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. A collection of talks she gave between 1987 and 1994, the book is a treasury of wisdom for going on living when we are overcome by pain and difficulties. Chödrön discusses:

   •  Using painful emotions to cultivate wisdom, compassion, and courage

   •  Communicating so as to encourage others to open up rather than shut down

   •  Practices for reversing habitual patterns

   •  Methods for working with chaotic situations

   •  Ways for creating effective social action
