Tonglen is the Tibetan Tantric practice of giving and receiving compassion and is often said to be one of the most powerful practices of awakening. Compassion is the wish-fulfilling gem which relieves suffering for all.

Join Grace for a bi-weekly online practice of Tonglen Compassion Meditation. Come exactly as you are, prepared to connect with the heart and move through suffering. You’ll leave this lunchtime practice with more peace and groundedness in your body. Side effects include cultivating compassion for yourself, for those around you and for our grieving world.

About the Host:

Grace Bryant

Grace (they/them, she/her) has been a whole-life educator since 2005, integrating drama, music, movement, meditation and yoga, mindful living, creative play, authentic relating, conscious collaboration, tantra and leadership. Grace is beyond grateful to have received the teachings of Nondual Tantra and the Spiritual Heart. They believe these teachings can transform the consciousness of anyone who practices them sincerely.

Currently, Grace is merging anti-oppression work with the vision of Advaita Tantra and the Spiritual Heart. They are committed to shifting the global culture of Tantra and Yoga teachings and helping end white supremacy culture and colonialist appropriation of these beautiful traditions. Grace draws inspiration from the original Tantra concept of kula (spiritual family) which was open to everyone and where castes, and genders could practice side-by-side. They deeply believe that Tantra is for all bodies, ethnicities, backgrounds, orientations, genders and humans which is reflected in the mission of Sacred Embodiment Community Seattle.

– SECURITY & EVENT ARRIVAL: We’re working on the balance between making our events convenient to access and also as secure and safe as possible. As such, we are asking participants to arrive on time, and no later than 15 minutes after their start time.

Please know we are working on ways to have more safeguards in place for our facilitators and participants which might mean changing how you access online events in the weeks to come. We encourage you to stay up to date with our communications (via email, meetup and FB) so you are familiar with how to access your events before they begin.
