For everyone.

Healing Chöd is an ancient Buddhist ritual known for its power to alleviate physical, emotional, and mental illness and suffering. There are no instructions to follow or techniques to learn. One simply lies down, rests, and receives healing. Healing Chöd is suitable for everyone, including those with chronic and mild illnesses.

Healing Chöd rituals consist of music, prayers, and mantras in the sacred sounds of Sanskrit and Tibetan, transformative mudras and offerings, and meditation to cut through the destructive emotions and repel negative energies and obstacles. Empowerments are given to further increase healing blessings.

Dakini’s Heart-Essence Chöd, led by Lama Migmar Tseten, is based on the female Buddha, Vajrayogini. It originated with the 10th-century Indian yogi and mystic, Mahasiddha Naropa. This healing tradition was passed down to Lama Migmar’s guru, the great master Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, renowned worldwide as a powerful healer. Chogye Trichen Rinpoche was also the guru of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
