Tibetan Yoga of Breath
Anyen Rinpoche and Allison Choying Zangmo
February 27–March 1, 2015
Medical science, the Tibetan Medical Tantras, and the yogis of old agree that breathing is the key to physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Modern Tibetan master Anyen Rinpoche calls the breath “the dynamic link between body, mind, and spiritual practice.” And what’s more, the breath is our constant companion, making it the perfect vehicle upon which to develop and deepen our practice of meditation. Join Anyen Rinpoche and Allison Zangmo for a practical and practice-oriented weekend integrating shamatha meditation, as well as yoga of body and breath, in a beautiful mountain setting. All are welcome regardless of experience level.
Anyen Rinpoche was born in Amdo,Tibet. His lineage can be traced back directly to the renowned Dzogchen master Patrul Rinpoche. Anyen Rinpoche is a heart son of Tsara Dharmakirti Rinpoche. After remaining with his Root Lama for 18 years, Anyen Rinpoche came to America, where he established the Orgyen Khamdroling Dharma Center in Denver. Rinpoche’s dharma activity focuses on helping Buddhist practitioners prepare for the moment of death through the Dying with Confidence Program and the Phowa Foundation. He also teachings a traditional “shedra,” or intensive Vajrayana study, for westerners at Orgyen Khamdroling. Read more about Anyen Rinpoche on his expanded bio HERE.
