Saturday, July 20th, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM

The Riverside Church
490 Riverside Drive, New York NY 10027
Sponsored by Eight Branches Healing Arts

According to the Tibetan Bon tradition, our bodies are made of the five elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space. During this workshop, we will learn the meditation, mantra and hand mudra for each of the elements. Tempa Lama will explain the role of the five elements in our lives and their relationship to the functioning and wellbeing of our bodies and minds. Tempa Lama will explain the benefits of this practice and how we can use it to strengthen our health and energy and to clear the five afflictions of ignorance, attachment, anger, pride and jealousy. He will also explain how to use the five elements practice to strengthen the La (soul), Sog (life force), and Tse (life span).

Following this teaching, there will be a monthly practice group for the Five Elements Practice forming in NYC.
