Introduction to Tonglen retreat

By Yashobodhi on Sat, 22 Mar, 2014 - 14:35
Yesterday evening Saddhanandi introduced her vision for the retreat that will be held here at Taraloka over the next week. The topic is a meditation practice called tonglen, which is a Tibetan word for receiving and sending. In this practice the breath is used to connect to one’s heart wish for the happiness of all beings.

Some highlights: Saddhanandi tells us what happened after she had been reading Doris Lessing’s novel ‘The Marriages between zones three, four and five’...
