    Tonglen Practice Circle - Sunday, July 2nd, 2023

    This Sunday, July 2nd, 2023, there will be another special guided Tonglen Practice Circle for anyone who wishes to do taking and sending practice for themselves and everyone in need.

    For those who may be new to Tonglen Practice and what it's about, Tonglen is an ancient Practice originating in Tibet, but has been adopted by many Zen and other Western Buddhist Sanghas, for the transformation of suffering, anger, sadness and the like within ourselves and in the world, and transforming the same through visualization into peace, joy, acceptance and other positive emotions. To learn more about Tonglen Practice, please visit this link:

    This event will occur in the Scheduled Sitting Room (SSR) and last for around 35 minutes.

    Dear friends, I have to apologize for dropping the ball on today’s Tonglen practice. Meian had asked me to come do the tech for today, and I completely got caught up in making dinner after the tea house and I realized 20 minutes in that I had completely missed the starting time. I apologize deeply to anyone that was waiting to sit with the YouTube stream.
    I will do better in the future.
