Using Energies to Heal & Balance
Tibetan Yungdrung Bön Healing Practices with Lama Geshe YongDong
Friday April 26 - Sunday April 28
Sun Studio is honoured to have Lama Geshe YongDong return to offer more teachings. This time he will be offering a weekend meditation retreat.
This teaching retreat focuses on the Tibetan Yungdrung Bön methods to heal and balance the five element energies of space, air, fire, water and earth in our body, emotion and minds.
Geshe YongDong will be teaching from the ancient Yungdrung Bon text “Ma Gyud” (Mother Tantra). This text contains methods for balancing and healing the energies of the five elements.
The five elements are sacred, fundamental energies of existence in the practitioners own body as the channels, breath energies, seminal essences, and sacred seed syllables of the energy body.
These methods and practices are used for the development of positive qualities and capacities, and for the elimination of negative qualities.
From the five elements arise the five senses and wisdoms, the five extensions of the body and they are also the five primary vital energies.
The weekend includes teachings, transmissions, and guided practice. You can receive and participate in the teachings by sitting on a chair or on the floor on a meditation pillow.
