TWO PART Community Chod Offering With Polly Ryan, MA MFT

Date: Wednesdays, September 16th & 23rd
Time: 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Location: For Goodness Sake

Chöd, a Tibetan word that literally means, "to cut", is a wonderful and powerful practice for these difficult times. The practice brings understanding to the root of our pain and offers a concrete method for the healing of addictions, traumas, and other "demons" in both our inner and outer worlds. It is a unique blend of the Tibetan Shamanic traditions and the Buddhist principles of compassion and emptiness. Click here for more details.

Chöd, a Tibetan word that literally means, "to cut", is a wonderful and powerful practice for these difficult times. The practice brings understanding to the root of our pain and offers a concrete method for the healing of addictions, traumas, and other "demons" in both our inner and outer worlds. It is a unique blend of the Tibetan Shamanic traditions and the Buddhist principles of compassion and emptiness.

This centuries-old practice is sung in Tibetan by the chodpa(s) while recipients relax on the floor. The practice is accompanied by the use of a traditional chöd drum and bell. Healing comes when fear, fixation, and self-clinging are cut through. Chodpas were traditionally called in when there were epidemics of infectious diseases and practiced in frightening places in order to transcend fear.

Polly Ryan, M.A., a student and authorized teacher of Lama Tsultrim Allione, has been a chodpa since 1989.
She offers this traditional Tibetan healing practice to all who wish to receive it.

Suggested donation $12 - $15 per session. Alternatively, please give within your means.
