From Fire to Light: Completion Stage Yogas for Transforming Trauma into Fully Awakened Humanity

April 26 - April 28, 2024

Dr. Nida Chenagtsang

Joseph (Joe) Loizzo , M.D., Ph.D.

This in-person retreat introduces the embodied neuroscience and transformative arts of the completion stage of Unexcelled Tantric healing and explores how this powerful and accessible methodology can help catalyze and speed the dissolution of our habitual trauma body into our fully awakened, native humanity, at the individual, interpersonal, societal and planetary levels.After reviewing the subtle body that maps the journey of transformation from embodied trauma to the rainbow body of full awakening, retreat leaders Drs. Nida Chenagtsang and Joe Loizzo will introduce the yoga of inner fire sublimation (chandali) that grounds all nine yogas of the completion stage.Our main focus will be on how the flow states sparked by sublimation fuel the light of the Tantra’s embodied emptiness meditation—the great completion stage (mahanispannakrama) or supreme yoga (ati-yoga). We conclude by exploring how the lucid intuition and joyful care released by this profound practice can be applied in the contemporary fields of psychotherapy and psychosocial change.
