The practice of Tonglen is a wonderful way to collectively “embody peace” as we mark the moment of Harvest of Peace. This tonglen weekend “mini-retreat” offers a way for us to connect more deeply with this powerful practice – with a specific focus on tonglen for the environment.

Do tonglen for others – and for the earth.
Tonglen is a Tibetan Buddhist meditation practice that is known as “sending and receiving.” On the inhale, you take in the pain and suffering of yourself and others, and on the exhale you give space, compassion and healing to yourself and others. It is a beautiful practice and can be particularly powerful when practiced as a group. Tonglen practice instruction will be given every day, so beginners are welcome!
