Tonglen is an old Asian meditation practice, offering us the ability to explore and relate to a difficulty in a specific, more intimate way. It could be referred to as a paradoxical practice that can be very helpful in relating to stress and difficulties. In a secular compassion training – the Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living or MBCL training – we have tried to make this peculiar practice more accessible and refer to it as ‘Compassionate Breathing’. In this webinar we shall explore ‘Compassionate Breathing’ in theory and with specific exercises.
All who are familiar with the practice of mindfulness are welcome, a part of the income of the evening will be used as a support for the Red Cross.
With psychiatrist Erik van den Brink he developed a follow-up programme for participants who have already followed a mindfulness-based training (e.g. MBSR or MBCT). This programme is called Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living (MBCL); it is taught throughout the world. Together they wrote several books on compassion training, which are translated into various languages. See www.mbcl-international.net.
The session will be in English. The regular price for this online webinar is 10 euro, but due to the exceptional recent disasters in Libya and Morocco, Frits Koster and Barbara Doeleman have requested to waive this price, and ask you for a donation for one or both of these humanitary rescue operations.
