Tibetan Land Healing
CHOD HEALING QUEST WITHIN KELTIC SACRED MANDALA
We will travel with Lama Jinpa, Lama Pema, Namgyel and other Chod & Tsa-rLung teachers on this Quest journey, this to be proposed several times during the year 2010-11, so as to discover in the Keltic Sacred Powerplace of the Verdon Mandala (South of France) the ongoing revival of both the Tibetan and Keltic sacred healing shamanic traditions, during musical and arts fusion embodiment sessions. Learning ancient tantric and shamanic practices, including those of Chod and Tsa-rLung Land Healing, we will offer these to the compassionate Dakinis protectors of the Grail, such as the Lady of the Lake and the other Fairies, still alive there (re: Wolfram Von Eschenbach - Parzifal - Templar - XII AD)
We will link the Shamamic practices of Chöd, Tsa-rlung windhorse and others, to the creativity in fusion shamanic music and arts, during sessions and prayers during which participants will reinvigorate both the land and their own life path.
The Tibetan Practice of Chöd
is a powerful method of cutting through obstacles—material, emotional and spiritual. It continually clarifies and free one’s body, mind and spirit, as well as healing others. Relying on Feminine Wisdom energy, the body itself becomes an offering to all beings in the universe. This is the ultimate practice of the compassionate spiritual warrior, a rich approach to life that leads to ultimate liberation.
We will receive the Chöd empowerment and progressive training in this and other transformative sacred technologies. There will be one week of retreat, including a weekend, open to all interested, which will includes the Chöd dance, Pegyal and Kusali Chöd, windhorse, smoke offering, healing Hayagriva-Garuda practice, a full day of the Precious Rosary Chöd, Healing the Four Elements and teachings on the Nature of Mind, in synergy with the ongoing creation of Tibetan Shamanic Rock music and dance prayers
The daily itinerary will be a flexible Quest pilgrimage, during which depending upon conditions and inspirations, we will scan, study and practice in sacred places, chapels, monasteries and high energy powerplaces sites within the Verdon Mandala itself, where we will link with the prevailing egregores and balance the outer and inner landscape, purifying the earth and uncovering our inherent clarity.
Caer Sidi is usually of a 14 days duration, on the traces of the Healing tradition of Mary Magdalene, Wolfram Von Eschenbach, the Grail Lore and Tibetan Vajrayana both pursued in the sacred sites of Verdon and Pyrennees, including options for pilgrimages to Valcros, Montsegur, Puivert, Alet, Limoux, St Maximum, Ste Beaume, St Victor, les Stes Maries (Ratis) and other renown Sacred Black Madonna altars.
At the introduction level (First Tryptic), we usually visit and scan the Verdon Mandala various sites, so as to focus upon the historical heritage as basis for the envisioned Chod, Tsa-rLung, Yogas and Keltic Archetypal Healing practices.
This includes numerous references to the Grail and Keltic Christendom Lore Mythology giving Keys for the practices (Wolfram Von Eschenbach) in relation with the Tibetan Tsa-rLung Five Elements (Body of Light) earlier teachings from Khyentse Rimpoche, Dudjom Rimpoche, Tarab Tulku Rimpoche, Tenzin Namdak, Namkhai Norbu, Tenzin Wangyal Rimpoche and John M. Reynolds, amongst others, this always bearing in mind the hermeneutics for a synthesis of Roots Shamanic Healing practices.
We will drive in mini-bus (09 seats) and then trek, from the roads or the old keltic paths, to several megalithic artefacts, ruins, fortress, altars or chapels, following the ancient pilgrimage traces of earlier ages in a renewed Grail Quest.
This will include further discovery and study of the Mary Magdalene Grail Lore history, its relations with the early Pagan and Keltic Christendom altars, as well as with later Irish Culdean monks migration into the Benedictins, Cistercians and Templars, as they are found situated in several South of France regions, such as the Aude, Ariege, Provence and Verdon. We will drive or trek to some of the higher ranges Templars chapels, Keltic and Roman strongholds, as well as sites not reviewed during our previous Verdon Tours&Study (2007-08).
More study and experientials related to the Grail Lore will include renewed pilgrimages to St- Trophime, Valcros Solar Fortress, as well as possibly a Shamanic Music Sacred Arts & Rituals retreat at Chateau de Valcros itself.
We will undertake some further meditation and prayers at St- Thyrs, Ste Anne, Ste Maries de la Mer, Ste Baume and at the St Jean Black Madonna, as well as visit the St- Victor Monastery, St- Maximin and other sites of interest (Nostradamus).
Our renewed Quest has now gathered a more deep focus on Chod Musical Healing when performed in South of France "Terre Gaste" of the Grail Lore. While practices in situ will remain anchored on what the events bring, the itinerary may still include a Three Maries and Sarah (Kali) pilgrimage at Ste Marie de la Mer, the Ste Baume cave and other various Black Madona(s) altars and scriptures found within the Troubadors, Kabbala and Free-Massons heritages.
This renewed itinerary basically follows the same path as all our previous Tours&Studies pursued from 1997 to October 2009 in the Verdon, Ariege and Aude regions, while now it becomes more focused upon divulging the relations between Shamanic Music practices, symbolism, rituals, history and Chod healing itself...
Our Cathares & Templars programme is basically the same itinerary as that pursued in October 2008 in the Verdon, Ariege, Aude and Riviera regions, now further focused upon the synergy between the Chod Rituals and Shamanic Music & Arts creation...
While each of us will go about our busy daily lives, filled with material objects, activities, goals and projects, there are many unseen forces that strongly determine our success, fulfillment and future happiness. These include internal causes, such as karma patterns, the fruition of our past actions, as well as the outer energetic forces. The effects of the earth and land, stellar forces, emotional imprints and the intersection of numerous spiritual influences, have a tremendous impact on our lives. Traditionally, Tibetan lamas were called upon to perform special rituals, a kind of “technology of the sacred“, in order to eliminate negative conditions and enrich and purify the environment and its inhabitants with positive forces. Such rituals can enhance our health, wealth, relationships and all aspects of our personal path and life journey of development and transformation.
Below is the spectrum of rites that are used in sequence to heal, energize and sanctify one’s environment and one’s mindstream.
1. BLESSING — Fire offering
The Sang offering is a Tibetan core ritual that uses fire and smoke to create and transmit vast spiritualized offerings into the invisible worlds. The smoke of sacred aromatic mixtures carries our mind-generated offerings to enlightened beings, local deities, land guardians—and all beings in creation. The effects are:
This process clears away obstacles in general, improving health, success, happiness and spiritual development.
Healing the environment from all kinds of disturbances and negative energies.
Connecting with local non-human entities, creating stability and security.
Pacifying any home or business, creative a positive flow of energy.
Gathering vast positive karma is gathered and old karmic debts are repaid.
2. ENRICHING — Hooking
Rich or poor, money and security are a source of stress and worry. The practice of Yang Guk (drawing in of prosperity) is a specific Tibetan practice that allows wealth energy to flow naturally to the person, their home, workplace, relationships and projects. Ritual effects include:
Increasing the forces that bring wealth and prosperity.
Nourished and strengthening the body.
Psychological and spiritual life is richer and fuller.
Consecrated precious Wealth Vases containing amplify the process.
3. ENERGIZING —
Windhorse is a Tibetan term for the vibrancy and life force that is associated with our health, charisma, careers, relationships, spiritual life and so on. When this basic energy becomes dampened or diminished, we are unable to succeed or follow through. Lungta rituals have the effect of:
Raising up good fortune, opportunity and timing.
Increasing vitality, strength and exhaustion of modern living.
Eliminating stagnation, blockages in all aspects of life.
Prayer flags help puts the wind back under our physical and mental sails.
4. PURIFYING — Cleansing karma
Negative actions, whether intentional or perpetuated out of habit or lack of knowledge, can leave disruptive traces or “stains” that pollute our lives. Healing rituals for purification of the individual and their home are performed to:
Clear non-productive, negative energies.
Inviting powerful healing forces.
Recognize and resolve whatever faulty actions or misunderstandings one has been involved with.
Purify the mental, physical and environmental effects of wrong choices, actions, verbal statements, etc.
5. CLEARING — Cutting
Chöd is a powerful sacred method for cutting through very deep obstacles, including negative entities, harmful spirits, or the disruptive effects of a personal tragedy, death of a close relation, and sickness of all kinds. This practice:
Subdues and befriends all local energies, demons and negative forces.
Promotes healing of difficult, intractable physical problems, where regular methods have failed.
Clears the massive karmic debts that have resulted in our difficulties.
