Pema Chodron’s new book, Welcoming the Unwelcome is particularly relevant to living through this pandemic. She encourages us to rejoice in our vulnerability and to use it to understand other people better. She helps us to see how our constant search for comfort ends up limiting us and makes for unhelpful habits. She reminds us that everything we do matters and why we need to take responsibility for our actions.
For 7 weeks from 14 October until 25 November, there will be an online bookclub to study this book. Sessions will be from 18.30 to 20.00 each Wednesday and will be held in English.
People wanting to attend need to buy the book and commit to reading 3 (short) chapters as a preparation for each session. The book is also available in Dutch: “Alles hier is Welkom”
The session will be practical, interactive and fun!
