Full Bio & Programs
For everyone interested in doing deep emotional work and learning a profound Buddhist meditation practice.
Discover deep healing and integration as you explore practices from the lineage of the 11th-century Tibetan yogini Machig Labdrön. Learn how to feed your “demons” (anything that plagues or blocks you) rather than do battle with them, as you move from a paradigm of fighting your shadow to one of nurturing it. The ultimate goal is to move beyond dualistic struggle.
This training offers personal guidance in accessible and effective approaches for dealing with negative emotions, fears, and self-defeating patterns, as presented in Tsultrim Allione’s best-seller, Feeding Your Demons: Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflict. Chandra Easton, who studied Buddhist philosophy and meditation in Dharamsala, India, also integrates teachings from the Great Mother of Transcendent Wisdom (Prajña Paramita) on your own true nature and the nature of mind.
