Bon Contemplative Healing Retreat with Tempa Dukte Lama

10am Fri. Sept. 16 until 2pm Sun. Sept. 18
Venue: Laurelville Mennonite Church Center, 941 Laurelville Lane Mount Pleasant, PA 15666

Contemplative healing practices help us to recognize that we are all gifted with the primordial wisdom of healing. In the Tibetan Bon tradition, practices to help us connect with the innate potential of healing have been done for thousands of years.

In this special Retreat, Tempa Lama will offer instructions and transmission of the traditional Bon healing practice of Sidpa Gyalmo, the chief protector of the Bon tradition.

In the Bon teachings, healing encompasses the physical, emotional and mental dimensions. Through the healing practice of Sidpa Gyalmo we can clear both physical illness and disturbances in our mind and feelings. The practice gradually opens us to our innate potential to heal ourselves and to help others heal. We will spend several days together in the beautiful Laurel Mountains to immerse ourselves deeply into this ancient practice.

This Retreat is suited both for those who are new to this practice and those who have practiced this healing practice previously. A booklet with detailed explanation of this healing practice, written by Tempa Lama, will be available for purchase at the Retreat.

The Retreat is for all who are interested in healing, including those who personally need healing, those who are working with others who are ill, and everyone with an interest in Bon practice and the Bon healing tradition.



Registration is closed.
The fee includes two nights of accommodations and all meals beginning with lunch on Friday and ending with lunch on Sunday. Vegetarian and vegan options are available.
