This event is CANCELLED due to low registration.


LJNY_Drongmo_Sur_DungLu Jong is an ancient Tibetan movement practice from the Tantrayana Buddhist tradition developed for the purpose of self-healing.

Simple movements are combined with rhythmic breathing to stimulate and train the subtle body channels to be more open thus facilitating the flow of blood, breath, and consciousness. Lu Jong pays attention to the health and flexibility of the the spine, vitality of internal organs, mobility of the joints, and restores balance to the body constituents, or humors, to encourage the flow of internal energy.

Many people are unaware of the Tibetan yoga tradition. Buddhist practices are thought of as being static and on a cushion. In great contrast, the monks that meditated in the mountains of Tibet, far from society, found it necessary to develop practices to keep their bodies in top condition, their immune systems strong, and their healing abilities well-tuned.

JKTLThis practice is in the lineage of Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche who gathered and modified the healing movements to be appropriate for people of all ages and abilities.
A Tantrayana Buddhist master and doctor of Tibetan medicine born in Amdo, Tibet, his teachings are deeply rooted in the ancient Tantric knowledge that has been the foundation for Tibetan Buddhism, Medicine, Astrology and many healing other techniques.

What does this mean for you? In addition to fostering physical healing by increasing flexibility, energy and balance, Lu Jong is a spiritual practice that opens your heart, cultivates inner calm, and hones mental focus as it is a form of Meditation in Motion.

Simply put, you will learn how to strengthen the critical connection between Body and Mind.
