Tonglen: The Mutual Reciprocity of Sending and Receiving
Saturday, March 9, 2024
11 AM to 1 PM ET (US East Coast Time)
Our very being is one of reciprocity – tonglen – the sending and receiving of breath, of energy, or prana. When I see myself in others and others in myself, who can I harm, who exploit? If we want peace, we become peaceful; if we value kindness, we offer kindness. Recognizing the wise, transcendental generosity of sending and receiving is the practice of Dzogchen. Whatever arises, that is it. Not two, but rather natural ebb and flow of the Natural Great Perfection. Tonglen is the ready responsiveness of our ever already complete Buddha Nature. Let’s look deeper into our illusion of separateness, into the nature of heart and mind, body and soul and practice simultaneously resting in the View with guided meditation in nondual awareness, the beingness of sending and receiving.
Each session topic is unique; it is not necessary to have attended other sessions.
