Pema Chodron’s When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times topped The Washington Post’s May 19, 2020 Nonfiction Paperback Bestsellers List. In this course, we'll ask: what are readers gaining from this book written by a Buddhist nun over two decades ago that allows them to relate to their present lives more deeply? We as individuals and collectively as a society experience much uncertainty and anxiety, especially in this time of national turmoil coupled with a pandemic. Chodron presents a path where we can learn to be with our fears and come to experience more kindness towards ourselves and others and also more freedom. This course will explore Chodron's When Things Fall Apart and offer writing prompts to deepen our understanding of Chodron's ideas. Two Thursdays: August 13 and 20, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Online Class.
