Chöd is a powerful practice for these difficult times, working in a direct way to cut through ego-clinging. Chöd has been called “the totality of all the teachings.” The Chöd taught and practiced during this retreat will be the Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Chöd which came to this great Dzogchen master in a dream. Chöd is a unique blend of a native Tibetan tradition, the Buddhist tradition of compassion and emptiness, with roots in the Prajnaparamita teachings, the Pacification of Suffering from Phadampa Sangye and the Longchen Nyingtig Chod ‘Strong Laughter of the Dakinis’. This centuries-old practice is sung and is accompanied by the use of a traditional Chöd drum and bell. Healing comes when fear, fixation, and self-clinging are cut through, based on nurturing not fighting what assails us, giving rise to the awareness of the empty nature of afflictive emotions.
Suggested materials: The Chöd practice requires a Chöd drum and bell. The kangling (thigh bone trumpet) is optional.
