Two nights of Tonglen: strengthening our compassion muscle

Tonglen, which in Tibetan means “accepting and sending out,” is one of the most powerful and intense compassion meditations in the Buddhist tradition.

The loving-kindness practice of Tonglen radically challenges our habitual patterns of small mind. By breathing in the pain of others and breathing out comfort and relief, we awaken our hearts to those around us. These two nights of meditation, teachings and discussion explores the boundless generosity that allows us to give to others without hesitation or fear.

Come for one night or both!
