The Power of Mantra

  • The Rubin Museum of Art 150 West 17th Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

Mantra healing is the practice of using sound as a healing medium—the primordial sounds of nature, as well as divine words from the Sanskrit and Tibetan languages. It is a powerful method for bringing balance to various diseases, restoring health, and protecting against future disease for oneself and others.

Drukmo Gyal Dakini, trained in the medical and yogic traditions of Tibet, will share the base theory behind Tibetan Mantra Healing in this intensive workshop. She will transmit 10 vital Tibetan healing mantras and explain how they can heal psychosomatic disorders according to Tibetan Medicine and spiritual healing system. A professional singer and humorous public speaker, she will share her healing melodies for participants to chant together as a group. The workshop will also include Nejang healing yoga, which incorporates breath and gentle movement, and can easily be practiced for self-care.

Join us for this rare and special event with Drukmo Gyal Dakini combining body, energy, and mind through mantra and meditation.

This workshop is open to all levels. You are invited to bring your own malas, (prayer beads), but it is not required.

Presented in partnership with Golden Drum, the Sacred Arts Research Foundation, Sorig Khang International, and Yangchenma Arts & Music

Drukmo Gyal Dakini was born in the Northeastern region of Tibet into a Tibetan yogi family where mantra and meditation were introduced at a young age. With support from the local Tibetan yogic community and her family, she practiced mantras with traditional melodies and started singing publicly in 2008. Drukmo moved to Europe in early 2014 in order to work with Sorig Khang International, one of the biggest organizations and academies of Traditional Tibetan Medicine in the west, which was founded by Dr. Nida Chenagtsang. During her stay in the West, she produced five albums of Tibetan healing mantras and chants with musicians from all over the world. Drukmo has travelled to more than 20 countries to share concerts, public talks, workshops, and courses on healing mantras, yoga, meditation, and external therapies according to traditional Tibetan Medicine. A main focus of her work has been helping women to find equality and helping mothers and children to view each other with divinity and compassion through Tibetan spiritual healing and Buddhist practices.
