YUTHOK NYINGTHIG PRACTICES

The Yuthok Nyingthig (Tib. གཡུ་ཐོག་སྙིང་ཐིག་) is a cycle of Vajrayana Buddhist practice connected with Tibetan Medicine.

We meet regularly to practice the Ngöndro (Tib. སྔོན་འགྲོ་) preliminary practices — the root of the tree from which all other Vajrayana practices grow. We also meet monthly on Medicine Buddha Day (the eighth day of the Tibetan lunar month) to share a Ganapuja (Tib. ཚོགས་མཆོད་ “tsok chöd”) feast.

From the Mantra Healing Treatise of Tibet's great 19th century meditation master, Ju Mipham comes this simple yet profound meditation technique that utilizes the power of sound (mantra) and light (visualization) for the healing of self and others.

NEJANG Tibetan HEALING YOGA CLASSES

Nejang (Tib. གནས་སྦྱངས་) is a Tibetan healing yoga practice that literally means ‘cleaning the energy sites of the body.’ It consists of simple breath work, physical exercises, and self-massage designed to improve the function of the sense organs and inner organs, balance the internal energy, open the channels, and relax the mind.
