Pema Chödrön

When Things Fall Apart

"I read this book over and over again. While it is deepy spiritual, it is easily digestible. Pema Chödrön is an unending source of insight, inspiration, and new perspective for me, especially during some of the more difficult times and transitions in life." - The Class VP of Retail and Teacher, Hannah Shelly

How can we live our lives when everything seems to fall apart—when we are continually overcome by fear, anxiety, and pain? The answer, Pema Chödrön suggests, might be just the opposite of what you expect. Here, in her most beloved and acclaimed work, Chödrön shows that moving toward painful situations and becoming intimate with them can open our hearts in ways we never imagined. Drawing from traditional Buddhist wisdom, she offers life-changing tools grounded in practicality for transforming suffering and negative patterns into habitual ease, innate wisdom, compassion, and boundless joy.
