When Things Fall Apart


Since its first publication twenty years ago, When Things Fall Apart has become the go-to spiritual classic for thousands worldwide–and its popularity has not waned over time. Pema’s work has been featured in O, The Oprah Magazine, Spirituality & Health, and other popular magazines. In recent years, When Things Fall Apart was adapted into a highly successful app and was featured on Oprah’s “Super Soul Sunday” in 2014. This anniversary edition, freshly packaged in a flapped paperback with a new interior design and a new afterword of reflections from Pema, celebrates her influence on contemporary spirituality and solidifies the book’s presence in popular culture.

It takes practice, patience, and self-compassion to quiet the mind and live in the moment. Like a toolbox for enlightenment, this modality includes many different techniques for living your best life, from the power of thought to yoga and meditation. Mindfulness is one of the 13 metaphysical modalities we offer at GWBW. We represent this modality on our logo with the butterfly. Subcategories under Mindfulness include intuition, intention, inspirational, guide words, meditation, visualization, mantras, and gratitude.
