Sundays at 7AM PST we will practice Tonglen. The zoom link is: https://zoom.us/j/2867859631The term tonglen is translated from TIbetan as giving (tong) and taking (len) or sending and receiving. In the contemplative practice of tonglen the practitioner cultivates generative qualities of being (such as loving kindness, compassion, joy) that arise naturally when suffering subsides. From this place of understanding they look into the world of suffering and invite that suffering in and, in a sense, metabolize it with the fire of the generative qualities, and then give back the quality of being that meets that suffering.
