About the teaching

Chöd (tib.:gchod) means to cut, to cut through. The ancient practice of Chöd teaches us how to make the most of our fears, and how to transform our fear into a beneficial tool that helps us to practice generosity.

Chöd is a ritual practice by which we can transcend our attachment to our body and to our ego in such a way that we offer with compassion everything that we are to other beings. In the Chöd practice of the Bön tradition, the fearful provocation of the spirit beings is considered to be nothing more than a manifestation of our own inner fear and attachment.

This practice can also be done on one’s cushion, at home or in a retreat setting as well. In cutting through our negativities, we transform our inner and outer worlds, heal ourselves, and open up toward our full creative potential and presence.
