Befriending ourselves…not so easy

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.

Excerpted from the DVD Good Medicine.
