The 3 healing Lights

Facilitated by: Susan Atkin and Sarah Wass
Show/Hide Biography

The 3 healing lights were offered to us by Dr Akong Ronpoche as part of his creation of Tara Rokpa. Tara Rokpa is a series of relaxations,meditations & self development exercises that are simple but profound & can be practiced in every day life.

The white,red & blue light visualisations use the healing qualities & powers of the elements that make up our bodies, our world & our universe.The visualisations use the elements in their pure & most essential form, that of light.The pure white light is especially suited to heal our physical body; the pure red light relates especially to the healing of emotional pain & blocks of expression & creativity; whereas the blue light especially helps to heal our fears, anxieties & lack of confidence.

Holy Isle is a wonderful place to experience the elements. We will utilise the natural qualities of earth,water,fire,air & space on the isle. We will also use art materials as a form of expression & the activity of simple massage to su[[ort the practice of these visualisations.

This workshop is suitable as an introduction to the 3 healing lights & for those familiar with the visualisations who wigh to deepen their experience of them.

Our aim will be to enable & encourage participants to pracice the exercises at home to help with the more enduring difficulties & when new difficulties arise. The workshop will approach them as relaxations, however participants are welcome to practice them as meditations if they wish.
