Sache: Tibetan Geomancy

about this event


Sa Che or Tibetan Geomancy is the analysis of the earth — including water, space, air, light, trees, garden and home. The principals of Sa Che are to bring harmony and equilibrium, both in the natural environment and within the being, affording good health, wealth and enjoyment. These benefits flow on to our relationships and lifestyle.

In this one day workshop, Dr. Nida will guide students in a study of Tibetan Sa Che through the lens of our Topanga property, illustrating the main principles of land geomancy in a real life environment. We will study the directions, the special healing features of the land as well as investigate simple ways to ‘remedy’ any aspects of one’s home, workplace or property that could potentially cause obstacles.

As Pure Land Farms is designed to be a replica of Medicine Buddha’s Tanaduk pure land, our study will include a tour of our Tanaduk gardens, with explanations by Dr. Nida of the properties of the healing plants that grow in the four directions of Medicine Buddha’s pure land.

Please bring a hat, good walking shoes and a bottle of water.
