The Rime Center will be offering a one day Tsa Lung/Tummo workshop, Saturday January 20, 2018. The workshop will be facilitated by Lama Matthew Rice. The practice will consist of Tsa Lung and seated meditation in the morning from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. With an afternoon session of Tummo and seated meditation from 2:00 pm – 4 pm. Throughout the day Lama Matthew will be sharing instructions on the practice so that those who are new to these practices will be able to incorporate them into their daily practices. Beginners are encouraged to attend, but must first have received meditation instruction.
“Tsa” means “channel” and “Lung” means “air.” This is a practice for purifying one’s obscurations through working with the subtle body (tsa, lung and tigle), a rich practice that totally engages body, speech and mind.
Tummo is our wisdom fire. We naturally have this warmth within us in the area below the navel chakra, but we are not usually aware of it and we do not use it. When we develop proper concentration and begin to work with our inner fire, we can completely transform ourselves.
Using visualization, breath techniques and movement, we connect to our inner fire and generate it greater and greater. We work with our breath, bringing it to a higher level, and this changes our blood. This warm blood in turn affects our hormones.
On a physical level, the inner fire is responsible for the temperature of our body—the heat of digestion and metabolism, the heat that powers chemical reactions and builds hormones. On an energetic level, the Tummo fire blazes through the channels, melting away the subtlest blockages and surging energy throughout the body. On the level of mind, Tummo is the source of love, joy, happiness and bliss.
