Open Module: The Healing Practices

Due to extraordinary circumstances, we are temporarily skipping over Modules 2-4
and opening up Module 5, the Chöd Healing Practices, to all qualified
practitioners.The four rituals we will learn are the core healing rituals used
universally by Chödpas of all lineages: Kagyu, Nyingtik, Dudjom, Do Khyentse and
so on. They are addendum that are added on to any Chöd feast or daily practice.
An ideal method of healing others, these methods are also excellent for one's
own practice or retreat. Cutting to the roots of illness, these practices
address a broad spectrum of disease causation: karma, demonic influences,
elemental imbalance and so on.

Prerequisite for taking this 3-day training is Module 1, or long term
involvement in any Chod lineage (Kagyu, Nyingma, Gelugpa, Bön), to be
individually assessed on application to the school. We will use a brief daily
Chod (PeGyal Lingpa's Concise Chöd or Kusali Tsok of Jigmé Lingpa as the
"envelope" for learning these rituals. Tsewong Rinpoche will offer explanation,
aided by Lama Jinpa's clear translations, slides and diagrams. The first ever
translation of these texts will be available as a hard bound book.

TseWang Sitar Rinpoche began his dharma studies at age 4, under the tutelage of his father, the renowned Lama Kunzang Gargyi Wangchug, also known as Lopön Gyelpo. From him he learned the basics of Buddhadharma, as well as the system of Longchen Nyingtik. Furthering his studies with Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and Dodrup Chen Rinpoche, he was recognized as the incarnation of Nubchen Sangye Yeshe, heart disciple of Padmasambhava. He also learned the cho system of the great female cho master, Shugsep Rinpoche (Rigdzin Chonyi Wangmo) from this father, who was her direct disciple.

Subsequently, he had the great fortune to meet the Treasure revealor and meditation master, Pegyal Lingpa. From this enlightened yogi of the non-monastic lineage, he received the entire cycle of his terma, the Kusum Gongdu (the Three Kayas of the Guru’s Mind). On his passing, Tsewong Rinpoche became his successor and lineage holder, as confirmed by Kyentse Rinpoche and Dodrup Chen.

Under the great yogin Lama Naljor Rinpoché, he trained in the highest teachings of Dzogchen, the Great Perfection. Spending more than twenty years in strict meditative retreat, Rinpoche was able to bring the profound practices of subtle energy and Dzogchen to full fruition.

Now head of the historic Sangye Teng monastery in Bhutan, founded by Sangye Lingpa and subsequently the seat of Ratna Lingpa and Pema Lingpa.
