What you are fighting is growing...

November 9. - 13.
MAITREA, Týnská ulička 6

It is with great humility and infinite respect that, for the first time in the Czech Republic, we will welcome Charlotte and Pieter - direct students of Lama Tsultrim Allione, who will come to give us the technique of the ancient method of FYD (Feeding Your Demons).

This 5-day deeply self-discovery seminar, is the first part of the 3-module training.

The five-step process of FYD is based on the view that only real care of our dark sides and their nourishment can help us acquire the positive potential that lies within them.

Do you or your loved ones, or clients in your practice, suffer from problems such as depression, anxiety and fear, illness, eating disorders, addiction, relationship problems, self-hatred or anger? The practice of FYD calls them demons. The harder we fight them, the stronger they become. If we change our approach and give them the necessary care, we can be free from this fight once and for all.

Feeding Your Demons Method (FYD)

This method is based on ancient Tibetan Buddhist practices and teachings. It was developed to make the wisdom of these teachings accessible and usable in today's world. It is used in personal and professional life, from psychotherapy and medical care to solving everyday problems.

Demon feeding is a deep process of working with fears and limitations that you no longer have to fight. On the contrary! This ancient practice describes our obstacles in life as demons. By offering "your demons" what they really need, you allow them to turn into allies who can bring unprecedented benefits to your life.

By fostering deep compassion for all aspects of ourselves and those around us, this process brings harmony and integration across the entire spectrum of our being.
