Root of Tibetan Medicine: Intro & Fundamentals with Jason Whitlow (FTTM 1.1)

Online Review Class: Sunday, November 4, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM, known in Tibetan as Sowa Rigpa or Sorig) is one of the oldest healing sciences on earth. It offers a vast medical knowledge that is accessible to everyone, and cultivates a happy mind along with a healthy body.

In this workshop we will explore the fundamental philosophies underlying TTM, including interdependence (tendrel), cause and effect (karma), and continuous authentic education (tantra), and will learn how the building blocks of the five elements form our body, energy, mind, and the world around us. We will also study the basics of the Tibetan language and the origins, history, schools, and contemporary practice of TTM.

We will then embark on our study of the Four Medical Tantras, the root texts of TTM, with their mnemonic system of illustrated trees. We will particularly focus on the Root Tantra, of which it is said “If you understand the Root Tantra well, you understand all of Tibetan Medicine”.

This workshop is part of the two-year Foundations of TTM program in Tibetan Medicine & External Therapies offered by Sorig Khang Bay Area and Sorig Khang International. Students are welcome to attend select workshops, or the entire program. Learn more →

Root of Tibetan Medicine: Health & Disease with Jason Whitlow (FTTM 1.2)

Online Review Class: Sunday, November 25, 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM, known in Tibetan as Sowa Rigpa or Sorig) is one of the oldest healing sciences on earth. It offers a vast medical knowledge that is accessible to everyone, and cultivates a happy mind along with a healthy body.

In this workshop, we will study the fundamental principles of health and disease in TTM.

TTM explains that the nature of health is balance, and the nature of disease is imbalance. We will study the dynamic energetic qualities known as the three nyepa (loong, treepa, and beken, or wind, bile, and phlegm), as well as the seven body constituents and three waste products. We will learn how, when these energetic and physical aspects are in balance, we enjoy good health, long life, and an open, satisfied, and happy mind.

We will also study the fundamentals of pathology, including the causes and contributing conditions of disease. We will learn how disease manifests when the nyepa become deficient, in excess, or disordered in the body, and how diseases can be grouped into the two categories of hot-natured and cold-natured disorders.

This workshop is part of the two-year Foundations of TTM program in Tibetan Medicine & External Therapies offered by Sorig Khang Bay Area and Sorig Khang International. Students are welcome to attend select workshops, or the entire program. Learn more →

Tibetan Hormé Therapy: Soothing Stress, Relaxing Body, Calming Mind — Hands-on Workshop with Jason Whitlow

10 AM – 6 PM Central

Hormé is one of the essential healing therapies described in the root texts of Tibetan Medicine. This safe, simple, and portable method uses warm herbal compresses and oil to unwind the nervous system, deeply relaxing and nourishing the body and mind.

Hormé can be performed as a standalone therapy, or combined with other healing modalities such as acupuncture or massage. In the Tibetan medical tradition, Hormé is one of the superior remedies for stress, anxiety, and insomnia. It is also excellent for prenatal as well as postpartum care.

In this hands-on workshop we will review the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine, focusing on the function and disorders of the wind element. We will learn about the historical use of Hormé, as well as how to identify the types of people and conditions it can benefit. We will then study the points where Hormé can be applied, learn how to make the herbal compresses, and practice offering the therapy to each other.

This workshop is open to everyone. Students are encouraged to attend the Saturday workshop as well, especially if this is your first encounter with Tibetan Medicine.

Yuthok Nyingthig Ngondro 7-Day Retreat with Eric Rosenbush & Jason Whitlow
Sep
12
to Sep 19

Yuthok Nyingthig Ngondro 7-Day Retreat with Eric Rosenbush & Jason Whitlow

The Yuthok Nyingthig is the unique spiritual tradition of Tibetan Medicine, a complete cycle of Vajrayana Buddhist practice containing essential meditations, transformative inner yogas, practices to cultivate healing abilities, and benefitting rituals. Created by Yuthok Yonten Gonpo, the father of Tibetan Medicine, it is known for its concise, accessible methods and its nonsectarian approach — it is perfect for modern, busy people. Practicing the Yuthok Nyingthig improves health and longevity, enhances compassion and wisdom, and ultimately brings spiritual liberation.

The Yuthok Nyingthig has been kept secret for most of its history — only recently has it been taught more openly, thanks to the kindness of Dr. Nida Chenagtsang and his teachers.

Practitioners who wish to progress along the path of the Yuthok Nyingthig engage a series of (mostly) 7-day retreats, with the Ngondro 'preliminary practices' retreat serving as the entrance to the entire path. The Ngondro purifies the body, energy, and mind and lays the foundation for all further practices.

In this retreat, each day will comprise four practice sessions consisting of physical yogas, group chanting, visualization, and silent meditation and contemplation. Participants are encouraged to join as many sessions as possible, and will remain in silence throughout the retreat, using the voice only for the chanting of mantras and prayers.

This is a non-residential retreat, with meal options.

All are welcome to join — there are no prerequisites.

Completion of the Ngondro retreat enables one to engage the more advanced Yuthok Nyingthig practices including the Guru Yogas, Six Yogas, Karmamudra, Mahamudra, and Dzogchen. It is a prerequisite for the Yuthok Nyingthig Tummo and Karmamudra teachings offered by Dr. Nida Chenagtsang September 22–26 at Pure Land Farms in Topanga, California.

Preparation

Please review The Tibetan Art of Good Karma, and contemplate the Four Thoughts regularly in your daily life. You may also wish to attend the Introduction to the Yuthok Nyingthig Ngondro workshop offered September 2 online and in San Rafael.

Introduction to the Yuthok Nyingthig Ngondro with Dr. Tenzin Yangdon & Jason Whitlow

Introduction to the Yuthok Nyingthig Ngondro with Dr. Tenzin Yangdon & Jason Whitlow

The Yuthok Nyingthig is the unique spiritual tradition of Tibetan Medicine, a complete cycle of Vajrayana Buddhist practice containing essential meditations, transformative inner yogas, practices to cultivate healing abilities, and benefitting rituals. Created by Yuthok Yonten Gonpo, the father of Tibetan Medicine, it is known for its concise, accessible methods and its nonsectarian approach — it is perfect for modern, busy people. Practicing the Yuthok Nyingthig improves health and longevity, enhances compassion and wisdom, and ultimately brings spiritual liberation.

The Yuthok Nyingthig has been kept secret for most of its history — only recently has it been taught more openly, thanks to the kindness of Dr. Nida Chenagtsang and his teachers.

The Ngondro or 'preliminary practices' serves as the entrance to the entire Yuthok Nyingthig path, purifying the body, energy, and mind and laying the foundation for all further practices.

In this daylong teaching, Dr. Tenzin and Jason Whitlow will offer an introduction to the Yuthok Nyingthig Ngondro, giving thorough instruction on each of its component practices, along with advice on how to engage the Ngondro in daily practice or in retreat.

This teaching is open to everyone. It is recommended for practitioners new to the Yuthok Nyingthig who wish to attend the September 12–19 Ngondro 7-Day Retreat, or for anyone interested to learn more about the Yuthok Nyingthig or Vajrayana Buddhist practice in general.
