"We are not a drop in the ocean, we are the ocean in a drop. Come out of the circle of time, and into the circle of love. Stop acting so small, you are the universe in ecstatic motion."
- Rumi

Compassion Groups

Charisse Lyons, a provider at Aslan Institute
Lyndall Johnson, president, founder, and licensed psychologist at Aslan Institute

Compassion groups are rooted in the Buddhist meditative practice of Tonglen. This is the practice of learning to be present to, and witness your own inner dynamics of suffering in thought, emotions and needs that lead to a defensive and restrictive lifestyle. Awareness brings about inner transformation which will impact not only your relationship with yourself, but with others as well, to be more loving, accepting and wise.

Facilitators: Lyndall Johnson & Charisse Lyons

Cost: $125 per month (includes teachings and practices online)
