11th Seminar of Himalayan Religion International Workshop

Traditional Wisdom & Body-Mind Practices in the Himalayas and Their Potential Applications to Modern Society


eng_v3_11th Seminar of Himalayan Religion.jpg


For centuries, Himalayan meditation practitioners have directly experienced the beneficial effects of meditation practice in preventing and healing many forms of illness. In the last few decades, there has been a growing interest in mind-body practices, and their therapeutic use. Tibetan spiritual traditions utilize mind-body practices as a way to heal one's body, energy and mind. During this workshop, we will discuss how we could apply Himalayan traditional wisdom and body-mind practices to modern society.
[1st Day] Dr. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche has explored the possible benefits of Tibetan yogic practices from the Bon tradition in people with cancer and their caregivers in collaboration with medical scientists. On the first day, he will talk about "Breathe as Medicine: Yogic Practices of the Bon Tradition and Their Effects on Human Health" to share his knowledge of these ancient practices, as well as how to apply them in our modern daily life.
[2nd Day] Centuries ago, Tibetan yogis developed spiritual practices that use dream and sleep as a spiritual path. The practice of dream yoga is meant to deepen our awareness during all our experience: the dreams of the night; the dream-like experience of the day; and the bardo experiences of death. The ultimate goal of Tibetan dream yoga is the recognition of the nature of mind or enlightenment itself. Dr. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will discuss the relationships between dream and waking, and dream and death.
