Akasha Training is Energy Training presented for the public. This level is contained as part of the outer Mandala, and the inner part is contained in the inner Mandala, the "Sacred Exercises". Thus, Akasha Training may serve simply as a holistic and healing measure of a rather temporary intent, and is also the necessary preparation for the Akasha Sacred Exercises of the Inner Mandala.
The level of the Outer Mandala is compiled for healing and regenerative purpose for an audience beyond all faiths and lineages. Thus any people of Buddhist and Non-Buddhist faith motivated are invited. Only condition is altruism and respect for the lineage and master. It is a non-committal Dharma approach, which of course may lead the individual motivated and prepared to the inner Dharma path, which contains the Yogas of the Sacred Akasha exercise system.
Akasha Training is part of the Dharma path based upon the healing exercises of the medical systems of Eastern Tibet and Western China. These ancient Buddhist teachings are offsprings and byproducts of the transmission lineages of the "Great Perfection" (Dzogchen) and the "Anuyoga" teachings, including those of Acharya Vairocana, a Buddhist master who approximately lived during the 8th century. The underlying view of this system is the common view according to the teachings mentioned, the inseparability of body and mind (tib.: lus.sems.dbyer.med.). Thus it is a "physical Dharma" lineage.
Generally speaking, exercises and Yoga practices can be found in all Tibetan Buddhist lineages and in Tibetan medicine, but usually they are kept secret and remain concealed to the public eye. These non-medical Yoga practices are considered as the most advanced practices unsuitable for the general audience, and usually do require lengthy preparation. The medical exercises are used to enhance the healing process and treatment approaches for particular disorders, but nowadays rarely used due to a lack of time of the physicians. The practices referred to involve visualisations and meditations of the inner channels, winds and energies of the body, while training in particular physical positions, and during bodily movements.
Here, the basic exercises are trained. The training is compiled for healing and regenerative purpose, and the chants are used to prepare the necessary conditions of body and mind. Thus prepared, the energy level of the audience can be used for healing the inner and outer. The exercises are partly still, and movement, partly rhythmic and meditative. The best individual experience and effects come about through group practice, the larger the better.
Any one interested can join Akasha Training, at any stage, no preparation is necessary.
However, already from the beginning Akasha training points clearly towards the innermost essence.
Here presented in their Sino-Tibetan Dharma way are static and movement exercises arranged in the context of lengthy chants of Sutras and Mantras. This system of Dharma practices addresses in particular groups of the lay community for the purpose of regeneration and healing. In the centre of this approach lies our deep Dharma practice path, the so called "White Path".
