About the event


Learning some simple and effective methods on how to deal with our negative emotions, especially, when we are surged and overwhelmed by negative emotions.

Many of us do not know how to cope with our negative emotions. Modern science and psychology do teach how to deal with them. Do they work? Tibetan Buddhist science and psychology teach many ancient methods on how to temporarily subside/suppress and how to uproot our negative emotions such as anger, desire, fear, ego, jealousy, sadness, guilt, loneliness, resentment.

The workshop covers the following topics:

1.  Some breathing techniques: breath and mind inseparable and invisible

2.  Some yoga/exercises: body, breath and mind are interdependent

3.  Some single-pointed meditation techniques using breath

4. What is the main source of our negative emotions? It is important to know where and how our negative emotions arise. Understanding this concept, we will learn some analytical meditation techniques.

Target Audience:

All, young and old, need happiness and mental well being. 

There will be standing, sitting yogas and many breathing yogas and then meditation.

What to bring:



Water bottle

Class Fee: $35

About Dr. Chok

Chok Tenzin Monlam is an accomplished teacher who has dedicated his career to preserving Tibetan Buddhist culture and language in modern society. A practicing academic, teacher, and healer, he teaches many modalities, from Tibetan language to Tibetan yoga, meditation, and Buddhist science and philosophy.

Ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, he studied and practiced as a Tibetan monk for ten years. Having advanced his studies through institutions for two decades, Dr. Chok has obtained multiple Buddhist and Tibetan studies degrees, including his Ph.D. from the University of Delhi. He has studied and trained for decades in Buddhist studies, Tibetan yoga, healing, and meditation under the direction of many major and minor Tibetan Buddhist traditions teachers. He served as the Research and Translation Department Head at the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives in Dharamshala for 13 years until he relocated to the United States in 2019.

An author, translator, and certified language instructor, Dr. Chok has written two books on the Tibetan language, translated over 35 books and many articles, and taught both Tibetan and English language courses affiliated with multiple learning institutions. His passion, however, lies in Tibetan yoga and meditation. The Tibetan style of yogic practice is exceedingly rare, and few people are qualified to teach it today. Dr. Chok is qualified to teach yoga in this Tibetan tradition and is certified in the Indian tradition. To share the health benefits of Tibetan yoga to the body, energy, and mind, he has taught prolifically in India, the United States, and over a dozen other countries.

Dr. Chok is also qualified to practice healing modalities, including Chöd, pranic healing, mantra healing, and more. Since the pandemic, Dr. Chok has taught virtual courses all over the globe. He teaches Tibetan Yoga and Meditation at the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art in Staten Island, NY, Tibet Center, Chicago. He is a Brooklyn Public Library’s University Open Air program instructor. Dr. Chok offers diverse and inclusive teaching series on Tibetan yoga, meditation, healing, and Buddhist science and philosophy in partnership with multiple organizations.

Dr Chok learned Chöd practice in a three-month Chöd retreat in Sankhu, Nepal, in 2017. He received the Chöd empowerment and oral transmissions from Lama Chödrak (Forest Lama) in Nepal and from Lama Wangdue (Nepal, Portland) and Lama Jigme (Tso Pema, India). He also learned how to perform the Chöd ritual from Chödpa Kunsang Dorjee (Khandro Labdon Shije Chod Institute, Nepal).
