Within the wisdom teachings of Buddhism, there are many stories that refer to its founds as the "Supreme Physiciam" - a healer of all illness - mental, physical, and spiritual. The Buddha understood suffering and its antidote. His prescription and philosophy for right living led directly to a Tibetan meditation practice that is today the medicine our hearts have been searching for.
On Good Medicine, the remarkable American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun known as Pema ChÖdrÖn shares the gift of tonglen, a simple and elegant meditation system "for the difficulties in life- those that cause the most suffering- as a way to befriend ourselves, accept the past we have rejected, and widen our circle of compassion. These traditional breathing meditations cut through obstacles "on the spot".
Skillfully distilled into a three-hour workshop, Good Medicine offers a revolutionary practice that is already nine hundred years old- and ready to awaken the hearts of America, right now, wherever and whoever you are.
