    TONGLEN PRACTICE CIRCLE 25 November 2018

    Please do join us for the beautiful Tibetan inspired practice of taking and sending (tonglen), tomorrow on Sunday 25 November. This practice is based on loving kindness (metta) and includes both taking in the suffering of others and sending joy, peace and metta.

    All are very welcome to join whether they have previous experience of the practice or not.

    The Tonglen Practice Circle will be happening on Sunday on Google hangouts. A link will be presented here nearer the time and can be sat-along with after the vent has finished:

    Times are as follows:

    UK (BST) - 8pm
    Western Europe - 9pm
    EDT - 3pm
    CDT - 2pm
    MDT - 1pm
    PDT - 12pm
    AKDT - 11am
    Tokyo - 5am (Monday)

    For those unfamiliar with the practice, there is a short description here: https://www.treeleaf.org/forums/show...e-Instructions

    I hope to see you there!

    So sorry I couldn't be with you, I've had a couple of days with very limited screen and keyboard time due to annoying arthritis in my neck. Nothing to complain about but means I need to keep moving my head like an old tortoise which is distracting for others. Still sitting though so will do my midweek Tonglen as usual. Thank you all for your practice.

    I am just seeing this thread now. Thank you for providing the YouTube link, Kokuu. I will join in Tonglen with you all that way. I have a special fondness for this practice.

    Meitou, I'm glad you're feeling better. That can make sitting and typing (moving/not moving) quite difficult and painful.
