About the Author

PEMA CHÖDRÖN is an American Buddhist nun in the lineage of Chögyam Trungpa and resident teacher at Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia, the first Tibetan Buddhist monastery in North America established for Westerners. She is the author of many bestselling books, including When Things Fall Apart and Welcoming the Unwelcome.


"Chödrön's clarity and warmth make this book accessible to a wide array of audiences. . . . Oft-quoted, much beloved, and radiating kindness, Chödrön remains a guiding light for those seeking spiritual growth."--Library Journal

"In this sage treatise, Buddhist nun Chödrön muses philosophically on life transitions. . . . This wise volume shines."--Publishers Weekly

"Instructive, compassionate, and welcoming, How We Live Is How We Die works to ease fearful attitudes toward death and improve people's daily lives through spiritual renewal and release."--Foreword Reviews

"A means of transmitting the wisdom and light of [the Bardo Tödrol] into the modern world. In a time when people would most like to dwell in the illusion of certainty, Chödrön reminds readers to recognize beauty in unpredictability and to relinquish their grip on a reality that is, and will always be, in flux."--Shelf Awareness

"Chödrön beautifully shows in this new book how to transform what happens to us and in us--even the painful episodes--into forms of awakening."--Spirituality & Practice

"This is a profound and most necessary text on how we awaken to our own dying. When we learn to address our death and live into the consciousness surrounding it, we deepen and greatly improve the quality of our living. A meditation, a provocation, an invitation."--V (formerly Eve Ensler), Tony Award-winning playwright and author of The Vagina Monologues
