Tonglen – Giving and Receiving Meditation

Here, Emmy Vadnais and Jeffrey Mishlove have a conversation about the Tonglen meditation video shown below. Tonglen is a special healing technique that entails both compassion for oneself and for others. Emmy and Jeffrey see this particular exercise as foundational for projects that they expect to unfold over the coming year. But, it is probably not for everyone.

In the Tonglen Meditation, CoHost Emmy Vadnais guides you to develop lovingkindness and compassion for yourself and others. You can give and receive compassion and transform suffering to love and connection, simultaneously, for yourself and others.
