Feeding Your Demons® Kapala Level I

With Lama Tsultrim Allione, Dorje Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam and Lopön Pieter Oosthuizen

March 3 - April 27, 2024

Feeding Your Demons® (FYD) is a simple but profound five-step process that guides the practitioner to transform their demons into protective allies through a sequence of illuminating questions and visualizations. Created by Lama Tsultrim Allione, it employs principles of the Tibetan Buddhist practice Chöd, as originally articulated by the eleventh-century female Tibetan teacher, Machig Labdrön. 

This method has helped thousands of people transform and heal negative emotions, fears, illnesses, and self-defeating patterns. The work transcends spiritual constructs, serving as a meaningful tool for anybody, regardless of religious affiliation or personal philosophy.

Who is it for?

  • Individuals who wish to acquire an effective methodology to directly engage with their own habitual patterns, challenges, and obstacles for sustained transformation.
  • Mental health professionals, life coaches, substance abuse- or guidance counselors, spiritual mentors, social workers, or anyone who wishes to eventually become certified to use this method to help and empower others. (See FYD Online Certification Program for more details)
  • This course is offered in both Buddhist and Secular Tracks, and this course is the Buddhist Track (Kapala Training). Please note that this is s a required retreat for the Magyu Mother Lineage Program.
