FEEDING YOUR DEMONS Ancient Wisdom for resolving inner conflicts
This is a course featuring the great 11th century Tibetan master Machik Labdron, and the practice based on her Chod Tantra. (Chod literally means 'to cut' in Tibetan).From a brief historical and traditional exploration of Chod, the course will then present a modern practical application of the underlying spiritual and psychological meaning of Chod.
Suitable for experienced practitioners as well as beginners.
The course is based on Tsultrim Allione book FEEDING YOUR DEMONS which brings an eleventh-century Tibetan woman's practice to the West for the first time , with an accessible and effective approach for dealing with negative emotions, fears, illness, and self-defeating patterns. Allione-bridges this ancient Eastern practice with today's Western psyche. She explains that if we fight our demons, they only grow stronger. But if we feed them, nurture them, we can free ourselves from the battle. Through the clearly articulated practice outlined in FEEDING YOUR DEMONS, we can learn to overcome any obstacle and achieve freedom and inner peace.
There will be meditations and experiential work, and Renate looks forward to questions and lively discussion.
