Tibetan Soul Healing  Tse Dup Yang Bod 

Tse means life force   Dup means to intensify   Yang means the highest essence of the soul energy,   Bod means to retrieve through dedicated practice

Tse Dup Yang Bod is a very deep and comprehensive Tibetan healing system & spiritual practice from a 7th century Tibetan Bon text written by Lama Tsewang Rigzin. It was given to him in meditation by the Tibetan Dakini Thuk Je Kundrol. It is known as a longevity practice for balancing the soul & life force energies which can be performed for oneself as a daily practice or for the healing benefit of others. All participants that complete the 3 year program with all requirements will be certified as a Tibetan Tse Dup Soul Healer.

For us to be happy, healthy and able to manifest our life well in all the different areas, we must have a balanced energy system. Due to stress, trauma or disease our energies become blocked resulting in soul loss and a decreased life force. Signs of soul loss are increasing obstacles in every aspect of our life including depression, bad luck or long standing illness.

This form of healing helps us to connect to the five powerful elemental energies that are the very fabric of our existence. The universal energy that runs through everything including our bodies. Understanding this intricate dance of earth, wind, fire, water and space, helps us to balance the energies of mind, body and spirit for healing, spiritual growth and self awareness. 

In this three year program you will learn to build five unique energies and channel them through your palms for deep soul healing through balancing the energy of 5 major organs and systems in the body, each strengthening a unique spiritual “wisdom” and decreasing troubling emotions known as “poisons”.  You will also learn divinations to understand how the healing is being received, space clearing and house blessing as well as powerful mantras which help strengthen all aspects of life. As you progress through the program your meditations and sense of purpose will deepen as you expand your awareness and intuition. As you move deeper into the program and fulfill energetic requirements your healing energy will increase as your energy body becomes stronger and more resilient against all forms of negative energy. This strength and resilience is what allows you to send powerful healing energy to others and perform hands on healing sessions.

This complete energetic program prepares the healer to assist in every way, with any issue including practices to assist the dying. Participants who complete the whole training will be certified as Drup Shen, Tse Dup Soul Healers, and will be able to perform healing sessions on behalf of others in accordance with the Tibetan Bon tradition and lineage.

Tse Dup Yang Bod – Certified Healer Program

This is a three year program. All attendees who complete the three year program with all practice requirements will be certified as Drup Shen Ma or Drup Shen Pa (Soul Healers) and will be able to perform healing sessions for others.

Participants will meet four times a year for weekend workshops. Each three day weekend class starts at 6pm on Friday evening and finishes on Sunday evening at 7pm.  The teaching is from an unbroken lineage and the program is taught in the traditional Tibetan way, including transmission and empowerment. Tania studied Tse Dup with Geshe Chongtul Rinpoche for five years and was given the lineage empowerment by His Holiness Menri Trizen 33rd of Menri Monastery who was the spiritual head of the Bon for the world. She then took the 5 year training again to deepen her knowledge even more while beginning to teach it to others. Geshe Chongtul Rinpoche gave her the spiritual name Lumo Woekar and in 2023 she will begin her 7th group of students in this program.

If Tse Dup is presenting itself to you at this time or you feel like you are being called to it, listen to your intuition and JOIN THE CLASS!  When Tse Dup found me, I was a bit skeptical about whether or not it was for me.  I was not actively looking for an eastern-style practice but it kept calling to me, first through Tania’s Heart Mantra series and then in many other magical ways.
By the end of the first year of the class, I noticed a significant shift in my energy.  I had more peace, quiet, and calm in my mind and I was overall more disciplined as a result of the practice.  The practice has helped me to trust my intuition and increased my confidence in my own ability to be the connection between the source healing energy and my client.  It’s been a life-changing practice that I have used in a variety of ways, including using the love and compassion mantra to help with challenging days, assisting my dog Moose in his transition, and doing healing rituals for myself and my loved ones………….Emily G.
