Feeding Your Demons®: Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflict
With Lama Tsultrim Allione
September 16, 2018
Feeding Your Demons is an accessible and effective approach for dealing with negative emotions, addictions, fears, trauma, and self-defeating patterns. Based on the ancient Tibetan Buddhist practice of Chöd, FYD reverses the paradigm of fighting with our demons, instead prompting us to investigate their causes and feed these fragmented aspects of our psyche with love and compassion. By releasing the pent-up energy trapped in these internal conflicts, we can effectively heal and transform them into allies in our life.
Inspired by the ancient Tibetan practice of Chöd, developed by the 11th century Buddhist yogini Machig Labdrön, FYD offers a profound path of self-transformation by effectively adapting ancient principles for a modern secular audience.
