Both in spiritual life and in ordinary life, we are daily confronted with a multitude of mental states, not always easy to manage. We often find ourselves overwhelmed by strong emotions, anxieties, fears, obsessions, desires, hopes, sadness, disorders, difficulties, and so on. There are various ways to deal with these mental states, which we here call “demons,” and the ancient Tibetan science of the mind offers us extremely effective methods that allow us to work with them from different angles. It is primarily important to know one’s mental structures and the mechanisms that induce disturbed states, and secondarily learn to use the various emotions in the most constructive way. Demons can destroy us but can also lead us to a very deep understanding of ourselves and consequently to a state of deep peace and awareness.

The journey towards the knowledge of our most sacred and profound nature necessarily involves confronting one’s own shadows. The great Tibetan Yogini Machig Labdrong, as early as 1200 A.D., developed a unique system of spiritual practice that is based primarily on encountering one’s own demons and has inspired generations of meditators to this day.
