Connect mind, body and spirit at retreat

At the teaching retreat, Geshe YongDong will focus on Tibetan Bon healing practices that have been passed down for over 6,000 years.

LAMA GESHE YONGDONG invites you to learn Tibetan healing practices that have been passed down for over 6

Sherab Chamma Ling, Tibetan Bon Buddhist Centre and Lama Geshe YongDong, invite the community to participate in their upcoming Spring Retreat.

It’s a special healing practice experience to those who wish to take an active role in either healing themselves or helping others.

The connection of mind, body and spirit represents a perfect and powerful healing system, equipped with infinite possibilities to respond to even the most difficult conditions. Unfortunately most people are not aware of how to access and utilize this inherent potential.

The discovery of neurotransmitters, small proteins released in response to thoughts, beliefs and feelings, directly impact and controls the functions of our cells. Medical studies have demonstrated that negative emotions play a significant role in the development of heart diseases, chronic pain, autoimmune diseases and cancer.

Anxiety, anger, shame and sadness drain our energy and suppress our immune system. Stress-related illnesses are the No. 1 cause of death.

Our body is able to identify and efficiently eliminate toxins, germs and even cancer cells on a daily basis. It can produce any medication (painkillers, antibiotics, antidepressants etc.) and administers them in a dosage, which is always correct and given on time with no or minimal side-effects.

Our mind has the ability to effectively process, analyze and utilize the vast amount of information we are surrounded with and can constantly adapt to and learn from new demands and challenges. Our subconscious mind regulates and influences most physiological functions.

Our spirit or higher consciousness represents the core of our being, our true essence and goes beyond the thoughts and emotions. It provides us with enormous resources of wisdom, strength, compassion and peace.

Connecting to our spirit, to our essence is natural and doesn’t require a religious or spiritual belief.

Because of the mind, body and feelings interconnection, the Tibetan healing sciences place special emphasis on healing the mind, which will also take care of our feelings and our body. Once we master a healing practice, we have the power to repair a variety of illnesses and pain.

At this weekend teaching retreat, Geshe YongDong will focus on Tibetan Bon healing practices that have been passed down for over 6,000 years.

It happens at 407A Fifth St. (at England Avenue) in Courtenay.
