Ancient Tibetan Bon 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 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 a practice for balancing the soul, life force and life which can be performed for oneself as a daily practice and for the healing benefit of others.

For us to be healthy and happy we must have a balanced energy system. Due to disease, trauma or stress 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 awareness. 

In this three year program you will learn to build five unique energies and channel them through your palms for the healing of 5 major organs and systems in the body, each strengthening a unique spiritual and emotional “wisdom”. 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.

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