Awakening the Sacred Body
with John Jackson
June 8 - 10, 2018
In the Tibetan tradition, the body is seen as a doorway that contains the pathway to enlightenment. Within the physical body lies a sacred energetic system of channels, chakras (energy centers), and energies that affect our physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Discover Tibetan practices for awakening the sacred body during this experiential workshop.
During this weekend, you will:
- Practice the simple methods known as the Nine Breathings of Purification and Tsa Lung (winds in the channels)
- Use the breath and slow, easy movements to release the old patterns held within the body and encourage the healthy flow of energy
- Learn to positively shift your mental or physical health in only ten or fifteen minutes
- Explore mental exercises to practice throughout the day to help you be more calm, centered, and joyful
If you enjoy Yoga, this workshop is a wonderful way to deepen your meditative experience and awaken to the sacred presence within your own body.

John helped me create one of the most powerful daily practices I have ever had access to! I will be eternally grateful! — Nuno Rosa, Portugal
