Description
A brand-new edition of the best-selling classic with added and updated practices.In 2001, Toni Bernhard got sick and, to her and her partner's bewilderment, stayed that way. As they faced the confusion, frustration, and despair of a life with sudden limitations—a life that was vastly different from the one they'd thought they'd have together—Toni had to learn how to be sick. In spite of her many physical and energetic restrictions (and sometimes, because of them), Toni learned how to live a life of equanimity, compassion, and joy. This book reminds us that our own inner freedom is endless, regardless of our external circumstances. Updated with new insights and practices hard-won from Toni's own ongoing life experience, this is a must-read for anyone who is—or who might one day be—sick.
