Tibetan Bon Healing Retreat - the Healing Practice of Sidpa Gyalmo

Woodstock, VT with Tempa Dukte Lama

Introductory talk (no registration needed): Friday April 26, 7-8:30pm
Daylong teaching: Saturday April 27, 9am-5pm with lunch break

North Chapel Unitarian Universalist Church, 7 Church Street, Woodstock, VT

Join us to experience the healing power and blessings of the ancient Tibetan healing meditation of Sidpa Gyalmo with Tempa Lama. Sidpa Gyalmo is the chief protector of the Bon tradition. She is the healing manifestation of the Great Loving Mother. Sidpa Gyalmo embodies skillful means and transformation through the unification of awakened wisdom and compassion.

Tempa Lama will offer the transmission of the Sidpa Gyalmo healing meditation practice to connect us with the blessing of this practice. He will then offer instructions on how we can use it to heal our body and mind and help others heal. The blessing of this healing practice helps us reconnect with our innate capacity of healing. In the Bon teachings, healing encompasses the physical, emotional and mental dimensions of our being. The healing practice of Sidpa Gyalmo helps us clear both physical illness and heal our mind and feelings.

Tempa Dukte Lama is an ordained lama of the Tibetan Bon tradition. He is the founder and spiritual director of Olmo Ling Bon Center and Institute in Pittsburgh, PA, and co-founder of Humla Fund. He is an artist and poet and has authored four books. He is deeply dedicated to making the Bon teachings available in the West. Tempa Lama studied at Menri Monastery, India, under the close guidance of the late H.H. 33rd Menri Trizin, the worldwide spiritual head of the Bon tradition until 2017. Tempa Lama has lived in the US since 2000 and teaches internationally, helping people bring a practice of healing and happiness into their lives.
