5-Week Subtle Body Training
"MAGICAL WHEEL" In the Modern World
Untying the Knots of Self-Grasping and Self-Cherishing
5 Saturdays, May 29 – June 26
9 am – 10:30 am, Pacific Time
“Since the trulkhor (magical wheel) comes from what I am,
it feels extremely good.”
- Jetsun Milarepa (11th-12th century)
The movement or posture, known as TSA LUNG TRUL KHOR (“magical movements of channels and energy wind currents”) is intended to work directly with the subtle body in the advanced practice of the Tibetan Tantric tradition. There are many lineages and traditions of this rather demanding high-level practice of yogis and yoginis.
Honoring the auspiciousness of embarking on the one-year pilgrimage of the KECHARA JOURNEY starting in June, Dakini’s Whisper will venture into some movements of TRUL KHOR that have been transmitted by the masters of the ear-whispered lineage.
MAGICAL WHEEL will bring together breath work, visualization, mantra chanting, meditation, and human heart qualities with these physical movements to come to a deeper understanding of the nature of body and mind. In addition, some movements of subtle body training will be adapted as variations of TRUL KHOR for modern-day practitioners who still can get benefits from them according to their physical level. We will also learn theoretical aspects of view regarding the nature of body and mind along with meditation. These precious teachings will help us to have precision on the map of the inner body to move into inner yoga while maintaining relaxation during the movement.
As Milarepa describes, these magical movement exercises will eventually lead us to our natural state of bliss, luminosity, and non-conceptuality since they are the natural expressions of our experience, who and what we are.
This class is open to all levels of physical ability. However, please notify us if there is any specific physical condition of which we may need to be aware such as high blood pressure.
Please do not eat one hour before the class.
We will adapt both standing and seated postures and movements so please arrange the computer accordingly in advance.
Also, please wear a light cloth that allows you to touch your skin directly.
