What You Receive

In this Retreat we will explore the traditional Tantrayana practices in the lineage of Tulku Lobsang.

  • Learn Lu Jong Tibetan yoga, a comprehensive series of movements to release blockages based on principles of Tibetan Medicine. Lu Jong systematically reestablishes the harmonious flow of blood, oxygen and energy in the body. Combining slow targeted movements with rhythmic breathing creates a stillness of mind, resulting in a calm focus after practicing.
  • Learn Tog Chöd, the Wisdom sword practice. Based on the Yama monk dances and movements from the Kalachakra, Tog Chod is a powerful dance with a sword. Cut your thoughts, battle your negative emotions, and become decisive in body and life.
  • Learn Tsa Lung, the breathwork practice with a profound goal. With proper breath retention techniques in combination with precise movements we effectively open hard to reach blocks in the subtle body channels. Our wind-energy, or lung in Tibetan, permeates the body and releases tension in the mind. Ultimately, we come closer to our pure nature.
  • Learn the rich context of this deep path. In Tantrayana Buddhism we use the body to transform our mind. This body is a precious vehicle that—when properly nurtured—can be the best method to increase our awareness, compassion and wisdom.

This retreat will give you several tools to improve your health, boost your energy, balance your emotions, elevate your happiness and deepen your awareness. Plus, receive the motivation to continue at home, whether you choose just one practice or all.
