As we live, so we die

by Pema Chödrön


NEW!!!Life changes every moment - everything is subject to change. The pristine snow that thaws away in the warmth, sunrise and sunset, the brief encounter with a loved one that resonates with us for a long time. Pema Chödrön invites us to follow this natural movement of life, also with regard to our own mortality. For it is precisely in transience that the beauty of life lies. Drawing from the rich experience of her long life, the great meditation teacher shares with us the secret of a fulfilled existence: not closing oneself off to the many beginnings and departures, opening oneself to the undetermined, the unfamiliar and the unwelcome. If we allow this radical insight, we will be rewarded and able to feel peace in every moment, wonder and compassion towards ourselves as well as others, and even to face our own death calmly. Prudent and straightforward, Pema Chödrön shows in twenty-five masterfully illuminating lessons how anyone can walk this path for themselves. And how to learn to deal with difficult emotions like sadness, anger, and hopelessness along the way. She makes us familiar with our own mortality and at the same time opens up the possibility of meeting ourselves, of letting ourselves be touched by all that happens to us in life - every single day.
