with Alejandro Chaoul
July 22-23, 2023
Enhancing Your Life-force with Breath: Bringing Rainbows into Your Life
The ancient Tibetan Bön spiritual tradition is rooted in its connection to the five elements, and the wisdom breath that supports our life-force.
In this weekend, we will explore the life-force breath that can retrieve and reconnect us with the power of the five elements.
Alejandro will Instruct us in:
- Securing a Boundary, a practice that helps us build an energetic support and trust more the boundless support of our inner space.
- The Nine Breathings of Purification, to clear our anger, attachment and confusion and reconnect to the core space of our central channel.
- The Life-force Tsa Lung practice and its connections to the retrieval of the elements into the space of our mind-heart.
- How to stay connected to what we cultivate in these meditations into the space of our True Source of Healing—following Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche’s book.
