Publisher's Summary

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 audiobook reminds us that our own inner freedom is limitless, regardless of our external circumstances.

Updated with new insights and practices hard-won from Toni’s own ongoing life experience, this is a must-hear for anyone who is - or who might one day be - sick or in pain.

Not sick... yet.

At the moment I don't have an illness such as the ones described in this wonderful audiobook, but I know that it's a matter of time before I will. When the time comes, and it's inevitable, when I will have some sort of illness with constant pain, I will have the techniques to either overcome or to accept the difficulties. For this I admire the author for her writing this book. Thank you. : )
