The course curriculum is offered under the auspices of the Nangten Menlang International Buddhist Medical Organization, founded and directed by Tulku Lobsang. The organization, a “School of Inner Medicine”, offers many teachings in Tibetan Buddhism and Tantrayana healing wisdom with the ultimate goal being the preservation and spread of traditional Tibetan healing arts.
The Teacher Education Program has been created with an eye toward the training of high quality and motivated teachers with a positive connection with Lu Jong Tibetan Healing Yoga. The power of Lu Jong is in its gentle ability to bring healing to all levels of students whilst encouraging them to take charge of their health by learning how to tap into their innate wisdom.
In Tibetan, Lu means body and Jong means transformation. By combining slow, meditative movements with rhythmic breathing, you massage blocked points open to re-establish the vital flow of blood, oxygen, and energy throughout the body. Physically, Lu Jong functions on the principles of Tibetan Medicine and balances all body systems.
It nurtures the spine, aligns the musculoskeletal system, improves joint mobility, and boosts organ function. Mentally, Lu Jong cultivates a calm, focused mind, transforming volatile negative emotions into peace and equanimity. In fact, Lu Jong is part of a deep spiritual tradition that uses the body as a vehicle for self-transformation.
Taught by NMI certified educator Joelle Kelly, the program is designed to transpire over a minimum of 14 days, strategically scheduled to encourage a deep connection with the movements and the rich context of the teachings that support them. Private trainings offer the greatest flexibility for studies as the format of study dates are organized to accommodate personal schedules.
In all cases, the pace will be such as to permit time to study and practice with Joelle, and fully absorb the content in body and mind. This training is much more than learning "choreography" and memorizing the names of movements. The curriculum encompasses the complete set of 23 Lu Jong Level 1 Movements and the comprehensive full Lu Jong Manual (340 pages).
The practical exam places focus upon the movements and your ability to share and teach the lineage clearly.
The online, written exam addresses the theories and foundations of Lu Jong (an open book test). These exams are a part of your training and take place under the guidance of your educator, Joelle Kelly
This is an annual online event, with several specific dates, where you can participate from your computer over the course of a weekend. You may also choose to attend this final event in person, in Europe, once travel restrictions are lifted, where it is offered twice a year also on specific dates.
