Day 27: Tonglen

 Led By Asa Angel


This meditation practice helps to cultivate a sense of compassion for ourselves and others. Instead of avoiding suffering, through this practice we can open our hearts and change pain into something that is more loving and kind. Practicing tonglen gives us a method of cultivating our mind to become change agents in creating a more positive world.

Asa is a yoga teacher based in Providence, Rhode Island and also works for LoveYourBrain as a Yoga Program Coordinator. She is deeply committed to cultivating meditative spaces, through which we can access deeper parts of ourselves and bring about lasting transformation. Asa understands that it is in the spaces between thoughts, words, and actions where we can achieve a sense of relaxation and connection to the world around us.
