Are you looking for spiritual growth, inspiration, and a deeper understanding of Buddhist meditation practices? Would you like to learn how to work directly with your body’s energy channels and chakras in order to quiet your mind and develop deeper meditative insights?
If so, then Harvard University Buddhist Chaplain Khenpo Migmar Tseten and David Magone for a two weekend series on Tibetan Hatha yoga practices at the Sakya Institute in Cambridge MA! Whether you’re a new meditator, or have been practicing for years, this workshop will introduce to to a profound set of transformational tools that can be used to rapidly deepen your practice.
What we will cover:
Part 1: Green Tara Sadhana Practice and the Seven Vayu Yogas of Virupa
Learn to expand your life force, balance your body’s energy system and cultivate deeper meditative insights through the use of a daily mantra based meditation practice and conscious breathing exercises (pranayama). Participants will receive a traditional mantra transmission from Khenpo Migmar Tseten, instructions on how to structure a daily meditation practice, and a full experiential overview of the “Seven Vayu Yogas of the Maha Siddha Virupa”.
Part 2: Mangalam Yantra Yoga
This workshop will introduce you to a full series of Tibetan Hatha Yoga poses, (Trul Khor) which date from the 10th century A.D. Rarely taught outside of Tibetan monasteries, these yoga poses are typically practiced in tandem with the Vayu Yoga of Virupa in meditation retreats. Regular practice of these postures can help to improve physical health, repair blockages in your channels and chakras, and induce deeper states of meditative insight on the path to awakening.
