I really enjoyed today's Chod, and felt for the first time with this Chod anyway, a sense of really becoming Troma with the ejecting Phe! and seeing my own body as just a corpse without much sense of loss that it was now so huge and a collection of juicy parts. With this came a feeling of vast wrathful energy and spacious expansion. I'm not so sure this a good or desirable thing but thought I'd pass it along. (And as I struggled to put words to these sensations, they began to dissipate, so I like Andrew's suggestion of having the talking part at another time.) Which leads to my next question: (almost) every day I've been doing one of the Tibetan yoga routines as my daily practice, and not doing this Chod. I wonder if that isn't part of the reason today's practice seemed less fear-filled or not, but maybe! Anyway, at this stage, do you feel that is okay, or should I be doing our full Chod practice on a more regular basis? I appreciate any input, and thank you so much for these teachings,
This lineage does not require you to do this Cho practice daily. It's OK to do this practice occasionally - once a week in a group just as we have been doing. It's a great way to enter Cho practice together.
