Mindful Book Discussion: When Things Fall Apart

In collaboration with the Center for Mindful Living (Washington, DC), we are excited about offering this three Sunday Book Discussion Group.






Hi Friends,

Please join us for this special 3-Part Exploration of the Pema Chodrön Classic “When Things Fall Apart”.

Certified Mindfulness Teacher and therapist Regina Flanigan will facilitate an exploration of the much-loved book When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times, by the American Buddhist nun Pema Chodrön.

In each session, Regina will start us off with a brief guided meditation and some reflections on the relevant chapters, and then we’ll open it up for mindful sharing and listening.

Feel free to attend any or all of the sessions, whether you’ve read the book or not.

Sundays, 4:30-5:45pm during our regular practice group time.

  • September 6: chapters 1-9
  • September 13: chapters 10-16
  • September 20: chapters 17-22
