In this workshop, we will explore the ancient Tibetan Buddhist practice of Chöd as found in the Yuthok Nyingthik healing tradition.
Traditionally practiced by Tibetan doctors and students, the ritual of Chöd (“Severance”) has been employed by yogis, healers, and weather-makers across the Himalayas for nearly a millennium. Accomplished adepts are famed in Tibet for their capacity to quell epidemic disease and appease troublesome local spirits.
Chöd has gained a widespread reputation in the Himalayas as a potent healing rite, and practitioners across the globe use the practice today for healing of the self and others, environmental healing, and profound inner development.
The allure of this esoteric ritual has captivated spiritual seekers and academics alike for centuries, yet its essence transcends its occult mystery, tapping into a profound understanding of the human mind. Its teachings on the nature of the “four demons” reveal the true nature of our hopes and fears, while the ritual framework offers an opportunity to accumulate positive karma, develop spiritual potency, cancel karmic debts, and facilitate healing.
On a most essential level however, the true power of Chöd lies in its power to cut through dualistic ego-fixation, the root of all negative emotions.
Teacher and practitioner Erik Jampa Andersson has been studying and practicing Chöd since he was a young teenager and draws from a wealth of both traditional study and personal experience in sharing this practice with others.
