The Buddhist meditation practice of Tonglen is a process of ‘sending and receiving’. In synchrony with your breath, you welcome your own and others’ challenges and suffering, then you send out whatever you feel will comfort and relieve these challenges and suffering. This empowering practice builds your connection with others through the raw and real emotions of suffering, and helps you begin to transform those challenges into opportunities for growth and learning.
