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

9:30 AM09:30

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.

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.

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.

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

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

In this module, we will study the fundamental principles of health and disease in Tibetan Medicine.

Tibetan Medicine explains that the nature of health is balance, and the nature of disease is imbalance. We will learn about the dynamic energetic qualities known as the three nyepa (loong, treepa, and beken, or wind, bile, and phlegm), and study the seven body constituents and three waste products. We will learn how, when these energetic and physical aspects are in balance, we are well-nourished and enjoy good health, long life, and a balanced 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 various parts and systems of the body, and how diseases can be grouped into the two categories of hot-natured (inflammatory) diseases and cold-natured (metabolic) diseases.

Introduction to Tibetan Medicine
Jul

9:30 AM09:30

Introduction to Tibetan Medicine

Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM) is one of the oldest healing sciences in existence. It offers a vast medical knowledge that is accessible to everyone, and supports the cultivation of a happy mind along with a healthy body.

In this workshop we will gain an overview of the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine. We will explore essential concepts including interdependent connection (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 learn about 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 a balanced and happy mind, and when they are imbalanced, we experience disease.

Students who have not previously studied the Root Tantra (FTTM 1.1–1.4 or TTM 1.1) and who wish to attend the July 7–10 Ku Nye Tibetan Massage Intensive, the July 12–13 Channels & Points workshop, or the July 14–15 Mebum Cupping Therapy workshop must take this workshop as a prerequisite.

This workshop serves as an introduction to the two-year Foundations of TTM program in Tibetan Medicine & External Therapies offered by Sorig Khang Bay Area. Students are welcome to attend individual workshops, or the entire program. Learn more →

to Jun 19

Ku Nye Tibetan Massage Level 1 with Eric Rosenbush, L.Ac.

10 AM – 6 PM Central

Ku Nye is the therapeutic massage practice of Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM), originating almost 4,000 years ago in Tibet. As an integrated part of the holistic healing science of TTM, Ku Nye offers specific therapeutic methods to balance the patient’s particular ailment or imbalance as well as to harmonize and support their natural bodily constitution.

This comprehensive, multi-part training includes a study of the fundamentals of TTM as well as the channel and point systems of the body. Practitioners will learn how to assess the condition of the patient, apply herbal oils, mobilize the body, apply heat or cold, massage the muscles, tendons, points, and channels of the body using various techniques, and remove the oils. Practitioners will also learn how to integrate Ku Nye with other external therapies.

This training is open to everyone — bodyworkers, health practitioners of all traditions, and laypeople — with no prerequisites. It will be followed by Ku Nye Level 2 and further Tibetan External Therapies trainings in 2019 and beyond. We are currently in the process of applying to offer CE credits through the Louisiana Board of Massage Therapy.

Other Trainings in Tibetan Massage & External Therapies

  • Ku Nye Tibetan Massage Level 2
  • Channels & Points in Tibetan External Therapies
  • Horme Mongolian Oil Therapy
  • Mebum Cupping Therapy
  • Metsa (Moxibustion) Heat Therapy
  • Yukcho Stick Therapy

Interested students may expand their studies via our Foundations of TTM program, where they will gain a more in-depth understanding of Tibetan Medical theory, and train in diagnosis and further treatment methods including lifestyle, diet, and herbal medicines. Learn more →
