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.

Tonglen is een oude Aziatische meditatievorm, welke de mogelijkheid biedt om moeilijke of ongemakkelijke momenten te exploreren op een, voor sommigen, intieme manier. Het kan gezien worden als een paradoxale oefening die behulpzaam kan zijn in stressvolle of moeilijke situaties. In de compassietraining The Mindfulness-Based Compassionate Living, of MBCL, Training, is deze oefening meer toegankelijk gemaakt en wordt deze ook wel geadopteerd als ‘Compassioneel Ademenen’. In dit webinar zal het ‘Compassioneel Ademen’ uitgelegd worden aan de hand van theorie en oefeningen.

Iedereen die zich interesseert in mindfulness is welkom, een deel van het inkomen zal geschonken worden aan the Red Cross.
