Lastly, here’s one of the exercises Malynn talks about:

“In this Tonglen (compassion) meditation, you basically breathe in the difficulty that you see in the world or in a person, the pain or a challenge or a difficulty they’re going through, and you breathe out to them your deepest intention that their suffering be eased, in whatever way, specific or general that you can feel it.

Then you can widen it out. You can imagine yourself being the person whose pain you need to breathe in and to whom you need to breathe out compassion, well being, ease, and then you can spread it out to others.

You can spread it out to all humanity, you can spread it out across time and do this practice for all beings who will ever live.”
