Tonglen Workshop

This two hour active learning workshop is designed for anyone with mindfulness/meditation experience or anyone in a caregiving or healing role/profession.

You'll learn and practice the compassion meditation of Tonglen, a powerful technique for transforming suffering, translated as "giving and receiving" and also known as active compassion practice. 

You'll walk away from this workshop with an understanding of Tonglen practice and when to use it as well as how tonglen can prevent empathy fatigue and energize you as you care for others. 

Actively practicing compassion can: 

  • Boost your courage to be present and resourceful in the face of life's challenges

  • Calm your nervous system and strengthen your capacity for meaningful relationships

  • Enhance your well-being and happiness by reducing anxiety, loneliness and empathy fatigue
