There is a fundamental happiness right within our reach, yet we usually miss it ironically, while caught up in attempts to escape pain and suffering. Pema Chödrön's radical and compassionate advice for what to do when things fall apart in our lives goes against the grain of our usual habits and expectations and confronts us with traditional Buddhist wisdom. There is only one approach to suffering that is of lasting benefit, Pema teaches, and that approach involves moving toward painful situations to the best of our ability with friendliness and curiosity, relaxing into the essential groundlessness of our entire situation. It is there, in the midst of chaos, that we can discover the truth and love that are indestructible. Included in the book are: Ways to use painful emotions to cultivate wisdom, compassion, and courage Ways to communicate that lead to openness and true intimacy with others Practices for reversing our negative habitual patterns Methods for working with chaotic situations Ways to cultivate compassionate, energetic social action Buddhism; Buddhist; Family & Relationships; General; Non-Fiction; Personal Growth; Religion; Religious life; Self-Help; Tibetan
The point is things are always falling apart. Pema guides us let go, to find a space with compassion toward ourselves and others to help us live a life that is awake.

It's a gentle teaching of being ...
Chodron's book, "When Things Fall Apart," is an excellent guide for a retired English teacher like me. At retirement, my life as I knew it changed forever. I miss my classroom and the students who filled my life with meaning. Now I must find new meaning and substance. The book is providing a path ...
