The Five Elements, Healing with Form Energy and Light
Welcome to the Five Elements Meditation Course. This course provides a thorough introduction to the Five Elements practices of the Bön tradition, which bring a life filled with balance and harmony.
October 30 – December 13, 2020
Experience improvement in your daily life through formal and informal practices designed for each part of the course.
Develop your experiences and insights through daily journaling tracking your transformational journey.
Enhance your understanding through focused study of Tenzin Rinpoche’s book Healing with Form, Energy and Light.
Students work with the online materials according to their own schedules. However, as a general guideline we suggest that students make available – 1 hour each week to enjoy the teaching videos, 30 – 90 minutes each morning during the course to experience the formal meditation practices (don’t worry if you miss a practice but try not to); and between 1 to 2 hours for reading, journaling and participating in Online discussions.
“This course made me realize that the Five Elements practices are an incredible antidote to the stress, anxiety, and disconnection that are so prevalent in modern life. The practices helped enormously to make me more aware of and in harmony with the natural world surrounding me and in balance with my own inner world. I reached some profound insights into certain issues I have, and the practices are truly healing.”
