What Takes Place in a Tibetan Pulsing Yoga Session?

(Simon Rees)

LiliesAt Tibetan Pulsing Yoga workshops, participants learn how to exchange sessions and begin giving sessions to each other. A Tibetan Pulsing Session might typically last up to 45 minutes or an hour, or possibly longer, allowing time for preparation, discussion and optionally an eye-reading at the start. The person receiving the session let us imagine it is you does not need to bring any special items to the session, and it is not necessary to remove any clothing before or during the session, except outdoor gear such as hats, jackets and shoes so that you are able to feel relaxed and comfortable during the session..

During the session itself, you may typically be asked to lie on your back or on your front, usually on a special yoga mattress or perhaps a massage plinth, and pulsing (i.e., the pressing of specific body points in a particular way) may then be performed on areas such as your back, head, neck, abdomen, arms or legs. Areas are not touched if they would be sensitive or painful upon contact – pain is not the goal! You would be asked or expected to communicate (usually via hand signals) about your feelings and sensations as you go, since Tibetan Pulsing Yoga should be above all relaxing, so that transformation can take place. At the same time, the ‘right’ kind of pain can be a healthy sensation felt when tension is breaking up – you will know the difference, because this discomfort brings a sense of release with it.

Unlike in most other forms of acupressure, massage or bodywork, in Tibetan Pulsing Yoga a long time may be spent on a particular combination of points – often up to 20, 30, 40 or 45 minutes, depending on the position, without changing points. This is to allow time for the bio-electrical circuit which is being worked on through the chosen points to become activated and energised, as though coming to life. This permits the accumulated negative bio-electrical charges in the circuit to relax, dissolve and be cleared away, for the permanent benefit of the recipient. This length of time is for most people probably the first time since they were in their mother's womb that such sustained contact, involving the pulsebeat energy of the heart, has taken place, and so it is an extraordinary opportunity for personal transformation and the extended period of contact holding the same points in unison gives the body and mind permission to go deeply into the process for a profound release which is not normally possible via forms of physical contact which are much briefer and speedier.

During this time sound is also used in specific ways to help ‘tune’ both the practitioner and client into the bio-electrical frequency of the circuit which is being worked on. Tibetan monks can spend years simply chanting, without employing physical touch, and this prepares the organs and points in the system. What they are doing is using the power of the voice to vibrate the specific frequency of a bio-electrical circuit or point. Nowadays in Western societies, however, we are in so much of a hurry that we prefer not to spend so long on this preparatory phase, and so we press straight on with touch as well as sound right from the start!

Separate to the initial preparatory chanting, music is then usually played during sessions as well. Music is used which specifically resonates the bio-electrical circuit being worked on. For this purpose, Shantam Dheeraj's son Parmesh specially composed music of the right frequency for each of the organ circuits.

This correlation between music and organs is fascinating in itself: it is so because the emotional expression of a piece of music, or even just the intrinsic emotional experience and character expressed in the singer’s voice, hits you in the specific bio-electrical circuit where you feel that type of emotional experience – for example, the feeling of being pressurized would hit you in the Lungs circuit (it's logical why!), while the feeling of threat would hit you in the Adrenals circuit (which is logical too!), and so on. Every person alive has a specific permanent expression of their own unique character and life-experience through the intrinsic vibrational qualities of their voice, in the same way as every person has permanent characteristics which have become an intrinsic part of the DNA programming of their cells.

This precise use and understanding of sound for transformation is one of the most ancient practices in Tibetan Buddhism, and has been refined and greatly expanded in modern times through the development and practice of Tibetan Pulsing Yoga.

After the session is finished, you are usually left to rest for a few minutes, either in your own internal space or resting together with your partner, in order to finish processing the bio-electrical activity of the session and slowly come back out of yourself ready to get up and go about the rest of your day. You may quite likely (and hopefully) be already in a state of relaxation at this point, so it is a good idea not to finish and get up abruptly. Then if possible allow yourself time in the hours and days that follow to create further opportunities to rest and relax in your life, in order to better assimilate the bio-electrical changes which have taken place in your system, and so get your maximum benefit from the experience.

It depends on which issues came up for you individually during the eye-reading – if an eye-reading was done – and on what you would like to achieve, but generally it is good to undergo a series of sessions rather than only one. This is why many Tibetan Pulsing groups focus on a single organ and take you through up to five or seven session exchanges on this same organ. This enables you to work on a particular organ more deeply, and perhaps a particular issue related to that organ. When a particular issue arises it is normally not dealt with after only a single session, but more effectively over the course of a series of sessions working on the same organ.

If an eye-reading is done, certain organs can be identified which are determined to be the ones most connected to issues that have arisen prominently in your life. Typically these are emotional-psychological issues such as negative behaviour, emotional or thought patterns, relationship problems, emotional traumas, and so on, but they may equally be physical traumas or other physical issues which have an under-pinning energetic weakness that has been identified in a particular organ circuit.

Medical SafetyTibetan Pulsing Yoga is complementary to most other therapies. It is a safe technique without danger of side-effects as it is not an invasive therapy like many conventional therapies, such as surgery or chemotherapy, which themselves leave deep scars in the body’s bio-electrical system. Instead of seeking to damage the body’s bio-electrical network further, Tibetan Pulsing Yoga patches up the holes and rejuvenates the body electrically.

Tibetan Pulsing Yoga sessions are therefore safe because it is not a system of invasive moves or physical manipulations, but instead a gentle process which involves the pressing, holding and stimulating of points. No substances or medications are given. No claims are made to diagnose or treat any medical condition or disease. And no potential harm or side effect is inflicted on the client – Safetyprovided, that is, that Tibetan Pulsing Yoga is not contra-indicated. Tibetan Pulsing Yoga is contra-indicated for individuals who are currently taking psychopharmacological drugs.

It is also advisable for clients not to engage in stressful activities right after sessions, and for them to drink plenty of water after sessions, but this does not relate to potential side-effects, but instead it is to help and allow the relaxation process to continue unimpeded in the system. Tibetan Pulsing Yoga is also a complementary therapy which can be safely employed at the same time as other therapies without disrupting them, with the exception of acupuncture or any other form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which are contra-indicated during any period when Tibetan Pulsing Yoga is being practised. (This is not because one system is better or worse than the other – it is in order to avoid energetic cross-fire of two techniques which have been observed to negate or disrupt each other's effects).

In my experience, Tibetan Pulsing gradually increases the joy and pleasure in your life, bringing a tremendous inner sense of bliss and peace, as well as increased wisdom and compassion: you can feel your fears, worries and difficulties one by one shedding away from you.
