Chod & Chod Dances

About This Event

Vajra Sangha Only ~ Closed Retreat.

This meditation intensive focuses on Buddhism’s esoteric practice for transforming the most difficult experiences into opportunities for awakening. It is a method which harnesses the heroic energy of enlightened intent to change neurotic mind patterns and heal from traumas. It is a practice for opening to intrinsic wholeness, loving compassion, and natural resilience.

The intensive will offer training and immersion in the method known as “Cutting Through” or Chod. Chod is a practice cherished by every lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. It is a dynamic meditation which incorporates, vision, mantra, prayer, music, and ritual to cultivate open-hearted presence in the face of one’s fear. Chod is a Buddhist method for healing and transforming the hidden content within one’s own mind. By giving up grasping and externalized projections, the meditator taps into intrinsic courage.

The intensive will alternate between teachings, training, dynamic meditation practice and silent sitting meditation. It will include instructions on:

How to use the Chod instruments, drum, bell and thighbone trumpet

Chanting the Laughter of the Dakinis Chod in Tibetan

The visualization and meaning behind Chod

The Chod technique for working with emotions and subconscious mind

Dzogchen and Chod – Buddhist philosophy on the nature of mind
