HEALING PRACTICES FROM THE TIBETAN BON TRADITION

 

   

The practices of Tsa Lung and Healing Sounds are a wonderful introduction into the world of Tantra: 

"Tantra is known as the path of transformation. Despite its emphasis on mind, through visualization practices, tantra offers a profound level of physical empowerment. In the ancient Tibetan Bon teachings of Tantra, the body itself is seen as a palace of the divine, as a fundamental aspect of enlightenment. The divine abides as space and light in every distinct energy function of your body. Every cell, every sense organ, every internal organ is associated with a diety. Not only does blood flow through your veins, carrying oxygen and vital nutrients to all your cells, but the body also contains sacred winds of energy flowing through sacred channels of light, bearing luminous spheres of awareness through all of your experience." - Tibetan Yogas of Body Speech and Mind by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

   

5 Elements Bon Tradition

 

Introducing and guiding the simple yet powerful practices of the five Tsa Lung exercises and the Five Warrior Syllables.

  

Each participant will learn to identify negative patterns and obstacles in body, breath, and mind; to clear these obstacles; and to cultivate and manifest positive qualities in everyday life. The five Tsa Lung exercises bring together focus of mind, breath, and physical movement to open subtle energy channels and centers in the body.

 

Through the process of identifying negative patterns, without judgment or analysis we clear these patterns through the Tsa Lung exercises. As we clear obstacles, we bring clear attention to the space that opens up within us.

 

Meditation is all about becoming familiar with this space, the source of infinite positive qualities. Abiding in this openness is the best medicine for healing our lives, and the simple yet powerful Tsa ung movements enable us to benefit from this medicine.

 

The Five Warrior Syllables Practice relies on the power of sound to help heal physical illness, clear psychological and energetic disturbances, and support the spiritual practitioner to abide with clear and open awareness.

  

Guided by the mind and carried by the subtle breath through the channels and chakras of the body, the power of sound helps to uncover positive qualities such as love, compassion, joy, and equanimity.

  

Through practicing with five sacred and powerful sounds known as the Five Warrior Syllables, we transform our lives and discern a clear path that begins with openness and leads to spontaneous, virtuous action in the world.

  

Notes on Tibetan Yoga (Thul Khor)

  

"Tibetan yoga can serve as a powerful support for all spiritual practitioners, not just for those with an interest in physical yogas. In the Tibetan spiritual traditions, body, energy, and mind are known as the three doors to enlightenment. The contemplative physical movements of Tibetan yoga (trul khor) enable us to enter all three doors at once through a single practice, offering a powerful, skillful means for clearing the obstacles and obscurations to openness and clarity in meditation practice.

  

The distinctive movements of trul khor arose as the result of deep meditation practice by Tibetan yogic adepts. Traditionally practiced in remote Himalayan caves and monasteries, the trul khor movements are now being made accessible to Western students. They are a powerful tool for clearing, balancing and harmonizing the subtle aspects of one’s energetic dimension.

  

It is understood in the Tibetan traditions that when the channels of the subtle energy body are clear and the winds circulating through them (prana, vital breath) flow unimpeded, the natural state of the mind — still, silent and thought free — is revealed. This natural state of mind cannot be created or destroyed; it is universal, unborn and undefiled. The trul khor movements serve to clear the energetic dissonance that obscures this clear open awareness, supporting meditative awareness on or off the meditation cushion, while helping to reduce drowsiness, agitation and dullness and improve physical health.
