With Tempa Lama and Geshe Lhundup Chaphur

Public Talk, Friday Nov 12, 7-9pm (open to all – no registration needed)

Venue: Olmo Ling Center, 1101 Greenfield Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15217

Join us for this Weekend Workshop on Tibetan Dzogchen Yoga, called Thrul Khor – the magical wheel or wheel of miracle. Geshe Chaphur and Tempa Lama will teach and give instructions from the Dzogchen Oral Transmission of A Khrid.

The Yoga of Thrul Khor practice is the training of harmonizing our body, mind and energy. The harmonious state of our being is the manifestation of joy, peace and prosperity of our body, mind and energy. This state manifests after we clear the obstacles and obscurations of
  • Blockages of energy that cause abnormal arising, abiding and dissolving of energy,
  • Blockages of our mental clarity and wisdom due to agitation, dullness and drowsiness.

Through the practice of Thrul Khor we clear our mind and retain its clarity and insight. The practice clears conditioning that cause disturbances and imbalances in the threefold humors of wind, bile and phlegm and thus helps us maintain a healthy body.

Mental stability, gentle physical movement and proper circulation of the vital breath will be the focus of this yogic training.

This Workshop is the first in a series of four Workshops. After completion of all four Workshops, participants can enroll in a “Thrul Khor Instructor Training” Workshop offered at Olmo Ling. While Thrul Khor practice includes some rather difficult physical postures, this weekend will focus on gentle movements from the A Khrid lineage and an introduction to increased awareness of the energy channels in our body. We will learn how to use the vital breath and simple, gentle movements to harmonize and strengthen the five elements and the flow of energy in our body.
