After a really difficult week last week, that was a beautiful way to start anew this week . I hope this practice benefits all around me and throughout our world. Thank you David, that was exactly what I needed. I would like to make this meditation part of my regular practice. Namaste .

Hi David,

I really enjoy your practices! With this one, I am new to Tong Len and practiced the last two days with you. My first person I visualize who is suffering, tears stream down my face and my breath gets chocked up - is this ok? Or should I pick someone else in my life who is suffering who hasn't caused my heart suffering? I feel sleepy at the end of the practice. Is this ok?

With kindness and gratitude - Amanda

Hi Amanda,

Thank you! I'm really glad that you've been enjoying the practices here. Thank you so much for practicing.

My teacher has always said that our tears indicate that the practice is working. :-) Just like a yoga practice, it's good to practice from where you are though. If you ever feel overwhelmed, you can switch to someone else, or even take a break from the meditation that day. Start with easier people, and then build up to the ones who really challenge you over time. Take it slowly, and your heart will open in ways that you might never have imagined.

When it comes to meditation, most of us are either challenged by either sleepiness or mental agitation. I myself am a sleepy head, so I often try to take a nap before I practice and find that it really helps. When you do the actual meditation, try to notice when you get sleepy. When it begins to happen, concentrate harder until the sleepiness starts to clear. If that doesn't work (and it might not at first), try practicing in a slightly chilly room, and avoid large meals before your meditation.

I hope that helps!

Yes, thank you for the kind response David! I appreciate the suggestions and will give them a try :-)

With gratitude and kindness,

Amanda

I could at last take part in this wonderful experience (I had to download it into Gaiam Tv, so that I could listen to it too). It was really great. Thanks for all your splendid work!

pranavayu, posted on August 11, 2016

That's great news! I'm really glad that you enjoyed the video.

Best to you and yours!

I didn't think that this was what I needed today...but it was. :-) A lovely practice to cultivate gentle, grounding, peacefulness. My body and mind feel relaxed and I will aim to remember the simple breath mantra you shared at the end. David - you are one of the first teachers I practiced with here on MYO (back when it was MYO...) about 3-4 years ago! One of these days I will come up from PVD to take one of your classes in Boston. Thank you for sharing your unique style!

pranavayu, posted on July 25, 2016

That's so cool that you've been following the site for that long! I'd love to meet you in person one of these days. If you ever have the chance, be sure to drop in for a class.

Until then, I'll wish you a happy practice from afar. :-)

thank you David for these videos, I have been following and practicing with your videos for 2 years now and each and every one of them helped me reach a higher understanding of myself.
Namaste for these special practices,

pranavayu, posted on July 8, 2016

2 years! That's really cool Melissa. It's so great to know that some of the videos on here have impacted you in a positive way.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write.

Hello there, thank you for the practice. Could you post the spelling of the connective net and its jewels, so that I may read more about it? Thanks again.

Thank you for this lovely short practice. Honestly in the beginning I was a little hesitant to breath those black clouds/negative energy into my body and let the heart dissolve it. But how magical! - It did work! :-) :-) Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful Tong Leng meditation with us! Namaste!

pranavayu, posted on June 23, 2016

Hi Sabine,

Thank you for giving it a try! I completely understand. I felt a little reluctant when I learned it as well. I'm so glad that I tried anyway! It's such an effective technique to transform negative energy. These days it's one of my favorite practices. I'm so glad that you found it helpful as well.

Best to you and yours!

I have been a loyal follower of your practices for a couple of years now, and this one has given the most feeling of peace - Thank-you

pranavayu, posted on June 23, 2016

Hi Canim,

Thank you SO much for following all of the videos on here. It's really great to know that you've connected to the practices, and I'm happy to know that this one was particularly impactful.

Thank you for letting me know!

Hi Ishaigor!

Thanks for pointing it out! It looks like there is a typo in the description. This one is episode three. We'll have a fourth and final episode coming out next week.

A happy practice to you!
