Working With The Elements 1

Facilitated by: Sarah Wass & Beate Jantzer
Show/Hide Biography

This is a two-weekend course to explore the 5 elements: earth, water, fire, air & space. These elements make up ourselves & our world. Knowing about the elements can help us better understand ourselves; our relationships with others & the environment around us. By bringing awareness to the qualities & interactions of them within our daily life we are better able to restore the balance of this constantly evolving dynamic. In this way experiences of harmony & well being can be brought into our lives.

Dr Akong Rinpoche created contemplation exercises for each of these elements as part of the Tara Rokpa method. We will introduce the practice of these two weekends alongside using relaxations & art materials. It is recommended that participants attend both weekends & ideally practice the contemplation exercises between the two workshops.

During the two weekends we will work our way through the elements starting with earth the most gross to the most subtle, space during the second weekend. Using the contemplations, the relaxations & art materials we will experience & explore the elements within & around us.

Taming the Tiger

Facilitated by: Susan Atkin and Sarah Wass
Show/Hide Biography

Akong Rinpoche, the co-founder of Samye Ling Monastery & Tibetan Centre, was the inspiration for & originator of Tara Rokpa Therapy.  His book Taming the Tiger forms an essential part of this process.

During the course we will use the methods carefully designed by Akong Rinpoche to enable us to reflect on how our mental habits & resulting activities create & cause problems to the unfolding of harmony & peace in our lives & the lives of others. We will focus on the use of relaxations, contemplations & art materials to explore the metaphor of ‘Taming the Tiger’.

‘Tiger’ refers to the mind, our mind, the mind that can so often create difficulties for us. We will look at our potential to tame our minds through awareness, acceptance & understanding with the aim of then using our energy in more positive ways to benefit both ourselves & others.

This workshop is suitable for those who are new to the methods of Tara Rokpa & those who already have some experience. There will also be an opportunity during the course for anyone interested to hear more about Tara Tokpa.
