Travel with a great spiritual master on this journey to discover your own Wisdom Mind. Learing ancient tantric and shamanic practices, we will carry these into the vast and sapcious heartland of Mongolia. With the practices of chod, windhorse and other, particapants will reinvigorate both the land and their own lifepath.

The Tibetan Practice of Chod is a powerful method of cutting through obstacles-material, emotional and spiritual. it continually clarifies and free one's body, mind and spirit, as well as healsing others. Relying on Feminine Wisdom energy, the body itself becomes an offering to all beings in the universe. This is the ultimate practice of the compassionate spiritual warrior, a rich apprach to life that leads to ultimate liberation.

Practice: We will recieve the chod empowerment and progressive training in chod and other transformative sacred technologies. This will include two weekends of training that includes the cham or chod dance, Pegyal and Kusali chod, windhorse, smoke offering, hayagriva and garuda practice, healing rituals and full day chod practice, and teaching son the Nature of mind.
Pilgrimage: Visiting sacred places, monasteries and wild power spots in the Mongolian hinterland, we will balance the outer and inner landscape, purifying the land and uncovering our inherent lucidity.
Benefit: We will participate in the great Buddhist revival of Mongolia, bringing back sacred practices that had been banned for 50 years by the Soviets; Some will be transmitted for the first time ever.

Benefits of Chö

a Cutting through disturbances to happiness, prosperity and security.
a Diminishing obstacles to healthier, more intimate relationships.

a Clearing of obstacles tied to home, land or regions; reclaiming damaged environments.

Chö is a lifelong spiritual practice for one's personal evolution, it is also a unique and extremely effective means for healing others. Part of the remarkable legacy of Machik Labdrön, the propagator of chö in Tibet, is a set of healing practices that clear the underlying causes of psychological and physical illness, while propelling us towards ultimate enlightenment. For centuries, wandering chö practitioners were well known in Tibet for their ability to heal illness, stop epidemics and pacify local conflicts. Chö rituals can also heal the land, change weather patterns and even improve the ecological balance of entire areas through the spiritual force of this technique.

Chö For Healing Others
As part of the THC Outreach Program, healing chö ceremonies are performed either in a public venue, or in private homes for smaller groups. The cycle of healing practices include:
The Hundred Torma Offering (Changbu Gyatsa) (Machik and PeGyal Lingpa traditions).
Offering in Six Parts (Tabpa Cha Druk).
The Nail of the Four Elements (Chang Shi Zerbu).
Those that are Hard to Tame (Shay Dul).
The Precious Rosary (Tsogley Rinchen Trengwa with special healing section added).
Ceremonies for the dying or deceased (Dur) to assist them in the afterlife journey." onclick=";return false;

With a loving mind, cherish more than a child
The hostile gods and demons of apparent existence,

And tenderly surround yourself with them.

Nourish them always with warm flesh and blood.
With the hook of love and compassion,
Befriend them and never dismiss them.

If, with pure noble thought and enlightened resolve,
You connect them to the sacred Dharma
And they are freed and established in happiness,
Then you, child, whoever you are,
Will be my inseparable friend.

-Machig Labdron (trans. Sarah Harding, 207.)

:bow: Thank you for showing this Ngawang Drolma! How really true!

Only in delusion we are all separate. When we realize that, is there nothing to add.
Buddha said all is empty like my brain.
Let’s make a selfie!
