Beginners and experienced students alike are invited to attend Tibetan Yoga From the Oral Tradition of Zhang Zhung: The Magical Movements (Trul Khor) of Body, Breath and Mind to be held November 2-5 with Alejandro Chaoul-Reich at Serenity Ridge and on Zoom. This is the first time these movements have been taught at Serenity Ridge in a decade!
The distinctive Tibetan practice of yoga known as trul khor or magical movement incorporates breath retention, awareness and dynamic physical movements. In this four-day retreat we will focus on the pith or root magical movements from the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyu (Oral Transmission of Zhang Zhung).
Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche calls trul khor a wonderful support for all spiritual practitioners, not just for those with an interest in physical yogas. By harmonizing the winds (called lung, prana or chi) and guiding their flow through physical and energetic dimensions, trul khor can clear long-held blocks in the practitioner’s body, energy and mind, supporting the spontaneous arising of awareness during formal meditation and in everyday life.
Trul khor has different sets of movements composed by different masters. This retreat will focus on practices from Pongyal Tsenpo and Orgom Kundul, two great yogis who are among the masters of the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyu.
Students who complete this retreat are eligible to participate in Trul Khor, Part II in 2024.
