Chod is an ancient practice of cutting through tensions, fears, and obstacles in our life. In Chod, we visualize making an offering of our body, which is transformed into whatever is wanted by all beings in all realms. In this vast offering we create and cultivate a flow with everything around us and are in contact with the boundless dimension of ourselves.
This course will draw on the teachings of Lama Tsering Wangdu Rinpoche, Swami Chetanananda, and the Longchen Nyingthig tradition.
The topics we'll cover include:
What Chod is and its origins
Instructions for practice, with commentary
How to play the drum and bell
The rhythms and melodies
Recommended donation for the course: $50.00. Please make an offering in whatever amount you can.
This program will be held at Unity of Tustin, 14402 South Prospect, Tustin. For information about the program, contact Sophie at 714-393-0978.
