Join Tibetan Buddhist teacher and interfaith chaplain Lama Tsering Yodsampa and Zen teacher and chaplain Ji Hyang Padma to learn traditional Buddhist healing practices to help us reclaim the power of ritual within healing. By reclaiming this power, we gain access to the boundless field of blessings that is our original nature, and then become medicine for our world.
The Medicine Buddha empowerment is a healing practice treasured by many in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition that we can practice for ourselves, or for someone we care about who is ill. Lama Tsering and Dr. Ji Hyang weave the ancient teachings related to the Medicine Buddha together with cutting-edge relational-cultural neuroscience that describes why these practices work so effectively.
Review the history of Buddhist healing, do some simple Medicine Buddha practices together, and learn how to:
- Develop unshakable serenity, mindfulness, and compassion
- Use ritual to bring spiritual healing to illness and other life-changing events
Experience the power of these paths directly through experiential exercises and rituals, which include the Medicine Buddha and White Tara practices, as well as vipassana and shamatha meditation. Gain an understanding of how Buddhist healing practices have catalyzed the contemplative sciences and somatic experiencing movements. These practices help you overcome inner and outer obstacles, and gain insight into your healing journey.
