Tse Dup Yang Bod 4 Spring 2023

Tse Dup Soul Healing course: 5 Levels, 2,170 hours
Tse Dup Level 4 welcomes all student who have completed any previous Tse Dup Level 1 – from May 2021’s Tse Dup 1 class to any Drupshen, Lopon or Ponlop of Tse Dup who has studied with Chongtul Rinpoche.

Geshe Chongtul Rinpoche founded Bon Shen Ling in 2006 to help preserve and share ancient Tibetan Bon teachings from an unbroken lineage of qualified teachers. As a result of that commitment, he has established a temple in Queens, NYC and a Bon learning and retreat center in Warwick, NY.

In 2008, after extensive study of the 7th century text, the Tse Dup Jha Ri Ma Nyen Dup, written by the great Bon Master, Lama Tsewang Rigzin, Chongtul Rinpoche offered the first Tse Dup Soul Healing training in the U.S.A. While incorporating learning how to work with the energy of the five elements, long life rituals, ransoms, soul and life force retrieval, the ultimate focus of this Tse Dup training has been deep and profound soul healing. Tse Dup Soul Healing and Tse Dup Soul Retrieval are very similar, but Soul Healing touches much deeper into the La.  Since 2008, over 134 students have completed the extensive three-year course requirements and become certified Drupshen, Tse Dup healers. Of these students, over 35 completed an additional two years of training to become Lopons, qualified to teach Tse Dup Soul Healing.
