Dakini's Subtle Body Training (DSBT)
is a transformative spiritual journey that weaves together subtle body-oriented practice techniques and advanced tantric theory with mudra, mantra, meditation, and pranayama practices as well as modern knowledge of biomechanics, fascia training, and other yoga therapeutic practices.
Natural Liberation of the Four Demons
On this five-week journey, we will delve into an exploration of the Four Demons, four types of blockage for freedom, which were presented by Machik Labdron, the 12th century Tibetan yogini. This journey invites us to move into the possibility of self-liberation or natural freedom of the Four Demons through body-based contemplative and embodied practices.
Each class explores each demon in an embodied, integrated, and experiential manner. We will take an intimate approach to inquire into how our own demons manifest in our body which is the most reliable source. Then, through various subtle body exercises, we will see if we can allow those demons to find freedom in and of themselves through releasing blockage and cutting through the conceptual process of thinking mind.
Integrated Buddhist Tantric Practice
Fully rooted in the ancient Tantric tradition, each class assists us in connecting with the inner experience of internal, emotional, and psychological materials as well as physical body sensations and subtle body alchemical transformation.
The subtle body training is designed to support spiritual practitioners, and people living in modernity to integrate spiritual psychology and advanced Vajrayana into a skillful practice for balancing body, heart, mind, and awareness.
Whether you are just embarking on the path of Buddhist Tantric practice or yoga, or have been studying and teaching for years, we invite you to take the next steps in your Journey with Dakinis Subtle Body Training.
This class is open to all levels of physical ability. However, please notify us if there is any specific physical or mental condition of which we may need to be aware.
