Pema is one of the wisest and most reassuring teachers around right now. She is an American-born Buddhist nun who has directed various monasteries and schools across the continent. She is also the bestselling author of When Things Fall Apart and many other books. As much as we might try to resist, endings happen in every moment – the end of a breath, the end of a day, the end of a relationship, and ultimately the end of life. And accompanying each ending is a beginning, though it may be unclear what the beginning holds. Here Pema Chödrön shares her wisdom for working with this flow of life – learning to live with ease, joy, and compassion through uncertainty, embracing new beginnings, and ultimately preparing for death with curiosity and openness rather than fear.
