Taken from a live online "Calm with Christoph" meditation event, this tonglen meditation is a special breathing meditation treat. Tonglen is a Tibetan concept made up of two words: tong (which means letting go, giving) and len (which means accepting, receiving). I recorded this meditation practice in response to the many requests from people for help with managing stress related to the current state of the world. Tonglen is about taking ownership and then transforming discomfort, in a very empowering way. It's a great practice for expressing compassion to ourselves and the world.
Just like my other mindfulness meditations, this recording has no background music. The purpose of this practice is not to “escape” to some imaginary world, but to learn how to bring your awareness back to the present moment.
Please, DO NOT listen to any of this recording whilst driving or operating machinery, or when you need full attention on something else. If you feel uncomfortable in any way during the meditation it is advisable to stop the practice and consider trying again another time.
