Bön teaches that many of life’s problems have to do with fear and attachment, the most basic obstacles to realizing one’s essential nature. The ancient practice of chod (literally, “to cut”) is a skillful method for dissolving these obstacles.

Traditionally, chod practitioners (Chodpas) would practice mostly outdoors, in environments believed to harbor harmful energy from nature spirits. The chodpa would travel into the mountains, chanting with drum and bell, in order to conquer the spirits through wisdom and re-establish harmony between the natural and spiritual worlds.

In the chod practice the fear-creating actions of the spirits are also considered a manifestation of one’s own internal fear and attachments. Thus, one can confront one’s fear and emotion indoors, seated on a meditation cushion.

These teachings will give the student an understanding of how the chod practice can help overcome the ignorance, attachment and aversion that are at the source of all fear. They will also teach you to free your potential for creativity, dissolve emotional conflicts, and help you reconnect to your own natural state, open, aware and fearless.
