Feeding Your Demons (FYD) is a profound healing practice developed by Lama Tsultrim Allione. This practice is inspired by the 11th century Tibetan chöd practice and modern psychotherapy. It offers techniques in identifying and working with our “demons,” or hindrances. FYD is based in the compassionate principle of “feeding” rather than “fighting,” and is applied to cognitive, emotional, and physical obscurations that bind up our lives. Participants will be introduced to the history and principles underlying FYD, learn and practice the 5 steps of FYD, and learn supportive practices.


Jonathan Barfield, Ph.D., has been a contemplative practitioner for over 20 years and is an apprentice teacher in the Tibetan Buddhist lineage at Tara Mandala under the guidance of Lama Tsultrim Allione. Jonathan is a certified Feeding Your Demons therapist and facilitator and has taught this practice to many monks, nuns, lay practitioners, and clients.
