TTM 1.2: Body Study – Anatomy, Physiology, and the Process of Death

30 hours

Building from the foundations introduced in the TTM 1.1 Root Tantra course, the program continues into the Explanatory Tantra, which reveals all principles of the medical system in depth.

This Body Study course takes you on a journey through all phases of this life, from conception and embryology through the process of dying and intermediate states between rebirths, and everything in between.  Both the gross and subtle components of the body are introduced, from internal organs and bodily tissues to the energetic channels and an introduction to the point systems used in Sowa Rigpa practice.  Physiological aspects of the metabolic fire, tissue formation, and the dynamics of three humors will also be discussed in depth.

Topics Include

  • Embryology according to medical and spiritual systems
  • Anatomy of the organs, bodily tissues, channel systems, and points
  • Overview of the types of channels, both physical vessels and energetic channels
  • Physiology of the digestive fire, bodily tissues, three humors, waste products, and essential vitality
  • Constitutional typology
  • Prognostic omens and dream interpretation
  • Process and signs of death
  • Study of the bardo and process of reincarnation
  • Introduction to Vajrayana subtle anatomy of the body, speech, and mind.
