Tibetan Thrul Khor Yoga Retreat - Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud transmission

Pittsburgh, PA with Tempa Dukte Lama and Geshe Chhembel Gurung
Saturday November 17, 9:30am-5pm and Sunday November 18, 10am-1pm
Venue: Olmo Ling Center, 1101 Greenfield Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15217

Join us for a special weekend Workshop on the ancient Tibetan Yoga practice of Thrul Khor. Thrul Khor means “the magical wheel” or “wheel of miracles”. Tempa Lama and Geshe Chhembel Gurung will teach and give instructions from the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud transmission of Thrul Khor.

Thrul Khor practice is the training of harmonizing our body, mind and energy. The harmonious state of our being is a manifestation of joy, peace and prosperity of our body, mind and energy. This state manifests when we clear obstacles, obscurations and blockages of our energy, as well as blockages of mental clarity and wisdom due to agitation, dullness and drowsiness. Thrul Khor utilizes gentle physical movement, breathing and visualization to clear our mind so that we can abide in natural clarity and insight. Through this yogic practice we can transform conditioning that causes disturbances and imbalances in the three humors of wind, bile and phlegm and thus maintain a healthy body.

The focus of this yogic training will be on building mental stability and awareness and improving the circulation of the vital breath, supported by gentle physical movement. We will learn practices of the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud transmission of Thrul Khor. No prior experience or yoga practice is necessary.
