Who is this for?

  • For anyone who wants to go from insecure to secure attachment.
  • Suitable for anyone new to attachment-work, or is already experienced.
  • People with Insecure Attachment.
  • For anyone who is willing to do the work to get results

workshop Overview

This program is suitable for beginners to meditation and healing work.

This program explores the benefits of cultivating compassion.

Meditation Technique

Tong Len is said to all include four sublime emotions: Loving Kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy, and Equanimity. It also is a training in the practice of generosity, ethics, tolerance, effort, concentration and wisdom, all at once.

Resistance

Resistance is a normal part of the healing process. We will learn to understand and value our own resistance, developing openness, and compassion towards it; not pushing it away.

Second Lecture and Guided Meditation

The second lecture will provide another opportunity for question and answer. Additionally we’ll discuss the motivation to heal in such away to be both personally happier and also to be of greater service to others. Moreover, we will discuss how and why compassion is a natural and necessary outcome of deep and proper spiritual practice.

Tong Len is a safe practice for beginners. But, it can be kinda weird if you aren’t used to it. Metta (loving-kindness) or breath/concentration practice should be used if Tong Len starts to get more difficult.

This Course uses an Evidence Based modality

The techniques and methods in this course are very similar to those used in the Attachment Theory & Repair 2022 Course, in which participants' perceived security and felt safeness improved by 33% and 61% respectively, and their feelings of anxiety and depression lessened.
