Five Warrior Syllables

In this guided practice (Finding Refuge in Times of Change), Marcy Vaughn leads this guided meditation for all practitioners. First, through stillness, silence, and spaciousness of mind, abiding in inner refuge. Then, noticing our response to open questions posed by Marcy, we discover how we are alive at this time to our body, our relations, our community and the natural environment, bringing the warmth of connection to all that we encounter.

Explore the healing capacity of sound. In this Tibetan meditation, known as the Five Warrior Syllables, we bring our attention to five subtle energy centers in the body (chakras) and vocalize a sound, A, OM, HUNG, RAM or DZA, at each location. As we relax into the vibrations and rest in that silence, a natural confidence arises that goes beyond regrets, fears, hopes, and accomplishments. This practice helps to clear obstacles and overcome negativity.

“The term warrior refers to the ability to conquer the forces of negativity. Sacred sound has the power to eliminate obstacles, emotional blocks, and mental obscurations…” p. 8, Tibetan Sound Healing, by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche – the source book for these teachings.

Inner Refuge

Within each of us is a source of unbounded spaciousness, infinite awareness, and a natural joy of being. At The 3 Doors, we refer to this source as the inner refuge. By turning our attention inward and focusing on the stillness of the body, the silence of inner speech, or the spaciousness of mind – the three doors – we enter this inner refuge, the core of unlimited creative potential. The Inner Refuge is taught as a seated meditation practice. Once learned, this meditation method may be practiced from moment to moment throughout your day, to reduce overthinking and recharge your energy.

The source book for these teachings is Awakening the Luminous Mind by Tenzin Wangyal.

Tsa Lung

Supported by seated body movements, the Tibetan meditation practice of Tsa Lung brings together the mind, body, and breath. Tsa is the Tibetan word for channel and Lung is the word for wind. These body movements work with subtle energy centers (chakras) to allow you to connect to your inner wisdom and rest in a relaxed yet aware state of mind. Integrate this meditation practice into your daily routine to clear habitual patterns and live life in a more authentic, spontaneous way.
