An Evening of Tonglen with Dapön Will Ryken

May 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

| Suggested donation $10 - $20

kamalashila-tonglen“Tonglen practice, also known as “taking and sending,” reverses our usual logic of avoiding suffering and seeking pleasure. In tonglen practice, we visualize taking in the pain of others with every in-breath and sending out whatever will benefit them on the out-breath. In the process, we become liberated from age- old patterns of selfishness. We begin to feel love for both ourselves and others; we begin to take care of ourselves and others.”
– Pema Chodron
