When Things Fall Apart - Online

When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times“When things fall apart in your life, you feel as if your whole world is crumbling. But actually it’s your fixed identity that’s crumbling. And as Chögyam Trungpa used to tell us, that’s cause for celebration.” —Pema Chödrön

Online Discussion Group

This classic book is practical, inspirational and easy-to-read, and challenges us to embrace times when things fall apart. We will explore the ancient wisdom in the book and tools for our current challenges.

“To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest. To live fully is to be always in no-man’s-land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again.”

—Pema Chödrön
