Mind training (Tibetan: lojong) is a system of meditation for developing bodhicitta, the thought of enlightenment. At its heart is the practice of exchanging oneself for others, in which one cultivates loving kindness and compassion towards other beings.
By mentally exchanging one’s own happiness for the suffering of others we cut through the self-clinging that is at the root of one’s own suffering
There is no need to book a place – just turn up for one or more sessions. Food will not be provided so bring your own packed lunch if you plan to stay all day.
