Chöd Healing Ritual: The Generosity of the Sky Goddess
May 6, 9:30 am - 5:30 pm
Healing Chöd is an ancient Tibetan Bon ritual known for its power to alleviate physical, emotional, and mental illness and suffering. There are no instructions to follow or techniques to learn. One simply lies down, rests, and receives healing. Healing Chöd is suitable for everyone, including those with chronic or mild illnesses. “Chod” means to cut through. This unique practice with its melodious chant accompanied by the Tibetan hand drum involves our whole being, offering healing and opening us to the wisdom that can cut through the four fears that cause suffering.
Tempa Dukte Lama is an ordained Tibetan Bon lama. Tempa Lama was born in the Humla Valley of Nepal, close to the Tibetan Border, into a family of Bon and Buddhist practitioners. His grandfather was a village shaman priest, called Drang Rig. Tempa Lama lived closely with his grandfather and often accompanied him on visits to sick and dying people. At the age of six, Tempa Lama entered Menri Monastery in Dolanji, India, where he was placed under the care of H.H. Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, the spiritual head of the Bon tradition. Tempa Lama has been living and teaching in the US, as well as teaching in Canada, Mexico, and Europe, since 2000. In 2013, Tempa Lama co-founded Humla Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the Bon culture and traditions in the Humla region of Nepal through access to quality education, healthcare and sustainable economic development.
100% of all workshop fees will be donated to Humla Fund to support its
medical clinic that will bring free acupuncture and holistic health care to
hundreds of Humli villagers this September.
