Many stories refer to the Buddha as the “Supreme Physician”—a healer of all mental, physical, and spiritual illness. With the Good Medicine app, beloved American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön shares the gift of tonglen, Buddhism’s original prescription for meeting life’s difficulties with a compassionate heart. “In tonglen practice,” Pema teaches, “when we see or feel suffering, we breathe in with the notion of completely feeling it, accepting it, and owning it. Then we breathe out, radiating compassion, lovingkindness, freshness; anything that encourages relaxation and openness.” Use this app to discover how tonglen can be used to help you face your fears and blockages, and open your heart to all of life’s experience.
