Dragon Head NarrowFEEDING YOUR DEMONS: Turning Obstacles Into Wisdom

April 22, 2017

The day offers an introduction to the process of Feeding your Demons, a powerful method for working with rather than fighting against the obstacles, conflicts, and challenges of our lives. By meeting our fears and obsessions with gentleness and compassion, we allow them to transform into insight, wisdom and strength. Drawing on traditional Tibetan Buddhist practices and teachings as well as Western psychology, this process was developed by Lama Tsultrim Allione, a Western Buddhist teacher and author of Feeding Your Demons: Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflict. No previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism or meditation is necessary. All are welcome.

machig-freshCHÖD: A Day-long Retreat

April 23, 2017

In a time of great turmoil and uncertainty, Chöd offers us a powerful method for working with fixed concepts, fear and confusion through deep compassion and profound generosity. In this mini-retreat, we will take up the invitation to “go to the places that scare you” through intensive practice and shared discussion. We will also examine some of Machig Labdrön’s newly translated teachings, from Jamgön Kongtrul’s Chöd: The Sacred Teachings on Severance, to deepen and broaden our understanding and connection to this profound lineage and practice. Our day will end with a Chöd tsog/feast. The retreat is intended for those with previous knowledge of Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche’s Chöd practice.
