Kapala Training Level 1 & Feeding Your Demons® 1 (Buddhist & Secular tracks) (Retreat in Sweden)
With Dorje Lopön Chandra Easton and Lisa Svensson
June 30 - July 5, 2023
Feeding Your Demons®: Kapala Training 1 (Buddhist track)
Feeding Your Demons® 1 (Secular track)
Both retreats in one place at the same time: Stockholm, Ytterjärna
In this retreat we will work with Lama Tsültrim Allione’s practice Feeding Your Demons® (FYD). FYD is an accessible and effective approach for dealing with negative emotions, fears, illnesses, and self-defeating patterns. It was distilled by Lama Tsultrim Allione from the teachings and practice of the 11th-century Tibetan yogini Machig Labdrön. FYD has benefited thousands worldwide, with practitioners from every walk of life on five continents. The work transcends spiritual constructs, serving as a meaningful tool for anybody, regardless of religious affiliation or personal philosophy.
Lama Tsültrim Allione writes about the method: “Paradoxically, feeding demons to complete satisfaction does not strengthen them; rather it allows the energy that has been locked up in them to become accessible. In this way highly charged emotions that have been bottled up by inner conflict are released and become something beneficial.”
- If you want to learn about Buddhism and a Buddhist meditation you will be aligned to the Buddhist track (the so called Kapala Training 1), where Lopon Chandra Easton will teach the Prajna Paramita meditation, a nature of mind practice.
- If you want to learn and practice a mindfulness-based meditation you will be aligned to the Secular track (Feeding Your Demons® 1), where Lisa Svensson will teach Shamatha, Calm Abiding meditation. Shamatha uses the breath as support to cultivate relaxation and concentration.
Place: Ytterjärna, Stockholm, Sweden.
