In this weekend workshop, Zen teacher, chaplain, and longtime Omega meditation teacher Ji Hyang Padma shares traditional Buddhist healing practices to help us reclaim the power of ritual within healing, helping us gain access to the boundless field of blessings that is our original nature, and become medicine for our world. The monks of Gaden Shartse monastery will join her via livestream, to give the Medicine Buddha empowerment.
Through the Field of Blessings approach, Ji Hyang weaves ancient teachings together with cutting-edge relational-cultural neuroscience that describes why these practices work so effectively. She also helps us gain an understanding of how Buddhist healing practices have catalyzed the somatic experiencing and contemplative care movements.
We learn how to:
Develop unshakable serenity, mindfulness, and compassion
Use somatic practices to de-escalate conflict
Find creative ways to bring spiritual healing to illness through the Five Elements
