Panic Attacks: Stop the Suffering

The purpose of this workshop is to end the unnecessary suffering due to panic attacks. You will learn the surprising cause of most panic attacks and discover a healing path back from fear, shame, and embarrassment. Regain your joy and confidence.

I offer three decades of in-the-trenches experience with panic attacks. In that time, I’ve found methods that are particularly effective in stopping my panic attacks. For instance, one technique releases the onset of my fear with only a few breaths.

As a non-mental health professional, I’m happy to share this information with you at no cost. Just take and use what works for you and leave the rest. Such is my payback for all the help that was given to me along the way.

--Tom Evans, first Center Director of the ManKind Project of Northern California, active participate in men’s circles since1980, and a truth seeker.

Are you ready to be free? It is easier then you thought! Experience your true essence and find your authentic voice and purpose in life.

This program offers the most potent keys to unlock our authentic self, which have helped Angelika to free herself of life-long patterns and step into a great and joyful freedom of Being.

The presentation is geared to lift everyone into their true authentic nature and experience a more expanded state of consciousness, not just temporarily, but from that moment on. It is meant to be a spring board to greater awareness, freedom and spaciousness within the participants. The evening will include a slide show designed to clarify how to easily let go of guilt, trauma, fear and taking things too personally. With guided meditation, partner interaction and toning/chanting we open up to experiencing a doorway into that presence/connection with our universal self, our true purpose and claim greater freedom of our voice and expression in the world.

P'HOWA: TRANSFERENCE OF CONSCIOUSNESS
With Chagdud Khadro

Dates: Saturday, July 9th and Sunday, July 10th
Times: 9-5:30 pm (tentative times)
Location: River School Farm, West Reno, NV.
The weekend retreat is only available for in person attendees.
Cost: $150 - 250. There is an additional suggested Teacher dana of $45 - 90.

khadro

Chagdud Khadro will be in the Lake Tahoe/Truckee/Reno region on July 9th and 10th, 2016. She will give an empowerment and teaching of P'howa: Instructions for the Practice of Consciousness Transference as Revealed by Rigdzin Longsal Nyingpo on Saturday, July 9th and Sunday July 10th.

The practice of p'howa, transference of consciousness at the moment of death, gives us confidence to live without dread of dying. The signs of accomplishment can be gained relatively quickly, without extensive retreat, and allow us to direct our minds toward a higher state of rebirth. P'howa ensures that we won't die in a state of spiritual uncertainty and drift helplessly in the after-death bardo.

Chagdud Khadro will explain the steps involved in P'howa training, the means of accomplishing p'howa at the time of death either for oneself or for others, and integrating p'howa into one's daily meditation practice. P'howa can be used by people of all faiths.

Please note this very important information about the P'howa training:

Please plan to participate for the entirety of both days if you wish to take Empowerment of P'howa (this enables you to do the practice). It is important to commit to the entire process due to the nature of the way empowerments are given and received. If, for some reason, you are unable to attend the entire weekend event, please come another time for this teaching.

Registration Information

Pre-registration is required as sitting space is limited, registration on the day is only allowed if space permits. Please register here for this special event. Those who pay at the maximum or above support fellow practitioners who are in need of financial assistance.

In June, we will email all registrants with info needed for the retreat as well as the address of the location.

Dana

We have the opportunity to offer dana to Chagdud Khadro for the weekend retreat (suggested amount $45 - 90). Dana is our personal offering in support of the teachings. The teacher donates time in the service of the Dharma, and only receives what the students offer. If you wish to make such an offering, you may give this to her in person at the end of the teaching.

Additional Information

Practice texts and commentaries will be available for purchase the weekend of the empowerment.

There will be ample chair seating and some meditation cushions provided, or bring your own cushion.

This retreat will be accepted at Tara Mandala for Credit for those in the Magyu program.

About Chagdud Khadro

Khadro has trained in p'howa extensively under His Eminence Chagdud Tulku and her teachings have found a receptive audience not only among dharma students, but also among health professionals who are seeking new, more profound techniques to alleviate the pain and grief of those they work with. People of other faiths have likewise found the training of p'howa training valuable. The Amitabha Buddha empowerment required for p'howa will be offered. Chagdud Khadro compiled the teachings of the late master, H. E. Chagdud Rinpoche, into the P'howa Commentary. Since Rinpoche's Parinirvana in November 2002, Khadro serves as the spiritual director of the Chagdud Gonpa centers in Latin America. She lives in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, where she teaches and writes.
