Dr. Alejandro Chaoul, Bon-Buddhist Tradition
Suggested donation $10
Learn about meditation in the ancient Bon-Buddhist tradition of Tibet, and how it can be a "medicine" for our mind, taking the three pills of stillness of the body, silence of speech and openness of one's heart-mind. Also experience how simple movements of Tibetan Yoga, called Tsa Lung, can help us open our chakras, in particular our heart chakra, and how we can connect to our inner qualities to then share with others.
