    Special "caring for all" tonglen circle

    Dear all

    This Sunday, 22 March 2020, I will be hosting a special guided Tonglen Practice Circle for anyone who wishes to do taking and sending practice for themselves and everyone affected by the Cov-2019 pandemic, and the fear that goes with it. Which is pretty much the whole world now.

    It is easy to become overwhelmed by huge world events like this and our Zen practice of Shikantaza gives us a place to find some calm in the centre of the storm.

    Tonglen and metta practice are another way of doing this, softening our hearts and connecting with suffering and other sentient beings in a structured way.

    This event will occur in the Scheduled Sitting Room (SSR) at 8pm UK time (GMT/UST) and last for around 40 minutes (10 minutes of introduction plus around 30 minutes of practice).

    Basic instructions are to be found here but I will be talking us all through it anyway.

    World Times (almost 100% probably correct but please check!):

    Anchorage (AKDT): 12pm
    LA (PDT): 1pm
    Phoenix (MDT): 2pm
    Houston (CDT): 3pm
    New York (EDT): 4pm
    London (GMT/UST): 8pm
    Paris/Berlin (UST+1): 9pm
    Kyiv (UST+2): 10pm
    Bangkok (UST+7): 3am (Monday)
    Tokyo (UST+9): 5am (Monday)
    Canberra (UST+11): 7am (Monday)
    Wellington (UST+13): 9am (Monday)

    I hope to see you all there. With Zoom there is plenty of space!

    Deep bows

    Feel free to message me if you wish to talk about issues around practicing with physical limitations. This is something I have been sitting with for a fair while and am happy to help with suggestions or just offer a listening ear.

    Hi Kokuu,

    Neat! I'm going to check with my wife to see if I can get the time off from parenting for a bit
