Tonglen: a practice of compassion for self and other

1 Comment

In response to the current coronavirus crisis, I’m putting together a FREE course on how we can find calmness and balance when things around us are falling apart. It’ll start on April 10, and will consist of 28 guided meditations, accompanied by just a few written words for context. The materials are delivered by email.

I’ve also created a compassion practice to help us remain open to the suffering within and around us.

This practice of “Tonglen” — “giving and receiving” — is a form of lovingkindness or compassion meditation from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. It includes a reminder for us to bring compassion to our own suffering, and so it’s also a self-compassion practice.
