Tulku Lama Lobsang has certified Farrah
to teach Lu Jong and asked her to do so, so that more may benefit from it.
This practice will be particularly helpful for preparing the body for the more
advanced practice of Tummo, which he will
teach in Sedona in April.
In the words of Tulku Lama Lobsang:
“Lu Jong is a very old Tibetan healing exercise in the Vajrayana tradition.
It is a higher technique for opening all of the body’s chakras, which means it
opens both the coarse and subtle physical body. The coarse physical body is what
ever belongs to the five senses. The subtle body is the 72,000 various channels
of the body. If you want to have a very healthy physical body, your coarse and
subtle body both need to function very well. Both are very important for anyone
that wants to live a long, healthy life. If someone does spiritual practices but
does not open the physical—both coarse and subtle—chakras, it will not be
possible to reach a higher state of mind. Therefore, if you want to practice
spiritual ways, know that your body is the vehicle to reach a higher state of
mind, or, in other words, your Buddha nature. This means that you need to use
your body to reach this place. Whether or not you are a spiritual person,
practicing Lu Jong is a great technique to achieve a healthy body and happy
mind. It makes sense for everyone to practice Lu Jong. If you have a body, then
it makes complete sense to practice Lu Jong.”
To further enrich your practice, the following resources will be available at the workshop. If you would like to have them in advance please contact Farrah (info is below).
More information is also available on the web. Use “Lu Jong” as a search term at www.youtube.com to view the trailer for the DVD (referred to as a CD-rom above because it is in PAL format, which does not play in most US DVD players) and other informational videos.
The website www.tulkulamalobsang.org offers a lot of information about Tibetan Medicine and the context in which Lu Jong developed. Tulku Lama Lobsang is a teacher in the Tantrayana tradition and there are a series of step-by-step practices one uses to reach a higher state of development. Lu Jong is the first of these.
“Change one, change
all. The physical body is the vehicle for change.”
Theory and Practice
This workshop is a combination of theory and practice.
Participants will be taught the Five Elements
exercises as well as a few simple techniques for generating energy. In
addition, context will be provided to enrich the understanding of the benefits
of the movements. Concepts of Tibetan medicine, as well as the role the
five elements—archetypal energy forms—play in our physical health and emotional
well-being. The system of channels and chakras in the subtle body will
also be discussed. Therefore, please wear loose, comfortable
clothing and bring something to take notes with, if you wish to do so.
It is helpful if participants could register in advance so that we can insure there is sufficient space for movement. However, we will make all efforts to accommodate anyone who is called to be there!
Please contact Farrah at 206-819-0165 or
firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
