Cygnus Review Autumn 2019, Cygnus Star Titles
by: Pema Chodron
The subtitle reads “with Uncertainty and Change” – again it’s a Buddhist master using her decades of hard-won wisdom to help us with challenging and painful situations. Pema is best-known as the author of the groundbreaking classic When Things Fall Apart, and this is an elegant new edition of a book first published in 2012, with flaps and beautifully uncut pages. These are of course difficult times. Why not, when everything seems unpleasant and threatening, cling on to what seems safe and familiar? This book explains with generosity and elegance how, by stepping into the unknown and fearlessly embracing what is best called groundlessness, we can live a more vibrant and joyful life.
