The Sherap Chamma Practice 

The teachings of Sherap Chamma (Mother of Wisdom and Love) comprise one of the most important tantric cycles of Bon. In many cultures the primordial female energy is seen as the origin of existence and the source of wisdom, love and compassion. The ancient Bon Buddhist tradition offers a method for retrieving and directly connecting with this divine feminine energy, bringing the potential for profound healing at all levels of experience — physical, energetic, psychological and spiritual. 

The Sherap Chamma practice permits students to deeply connect with their own innate wisdom and with the love and compassion that radiate from that wisdom. Marcy Vaughn will present these ancient teachings in a way that is fresh and relevant to modern daily life.
