Chod is the one of the most powerful meditation practices in Tibetan Bon and Buddhism. Chod practice uses chanting, meditation and the two-faced Damaru drum, trumpet and bell to guide practitioners in recognizing the power of their pure mind to cut through fears and release suffering.


The two faces of the Chod Damaru drum represent two facets of life: living and dying. During this retreat, students will chant from the ancient Chod text and learn to use the Damaru in the right hand, bell in the left hand, and sound calls on the trumpet.


Chod is a special and unique practice for conquering fears and recognizing natural wisdom through Dakini energy.


This teaching is recommended for students seeking to deepen and strengthen their meditation practice.
