Course objectives:

  • Recognize how to befriend the difficulties and obstacles in life through maitri and Tonglen practice.
  • Discuss and utilize mindfulness meditation practice as the ground for compassion and Tonglen practice.
  • Summarize the four stages of Tonglen practice, transforming poisons into medicine.
  • Practice the four stages of Tonglen including the personal, the relational, and the universal.
  • Discuss ways to integrate Tonglen practice into everyday life through stories, suggestions, and insight.

On Good Medicine, Pema Chödrön reveals the time-tested Buddhist antidote to suffering—and shows how to apply it in your own life. The simple and elegant meditation practice known as tonglen, she teaches, is the perfect medicine for ordinary people like ourselves.

Through tonglen, we can use life's difficulties as a way to befriend ourselves, accept the past we have rejected, and widen our circle of compassion. Skillfully distilled into a three-hour workshop, Good Medicine offers you a revolutionary practice that is already 1,000 years old—and ready to awaken your heart right now.

Also available on CD.

Captivating commentary on how various forms and degrees of tonglen can be incorporated into one's practice and everyday life to actualize one path of that of a bhodisattva as well as to cultivate compassion for all beings who suffer and to whom we are connected.

I had attempted Tonglen in the past, but was uncomfortable with it. Pema teaches it in such a way that is gentle and loving so that I was able to overcome my hesitation. Good Medicine was the perfect teaching tool for me.

Before, I've only read Pema Chödrön's books and listened to her tapes. To see her teach was amazing. Thank you!
