Everybody knows the five elements, but we don't know how important they are in our life. We don't even know how to deal with them in our daily life, and how they can influence our body, mind and energies. We can learn how to recharge our energies through these elements.

All these answers can be found in ancient traditions such as the Bon Tradition. In this Weekend Retreat we will practise

- Each element according to the part of the body or Chakras.

-The specific mantra for each element

- The Mudra for each element

- The movements associated with each element

- Meditation for each element


"I hope these practices can help you on the path of healing and also help you to heal others" Geshe Lhundup

Geshe Lhundup, born in Tibet in 1976, is a Geshe (doctor of philosophy) in the Tibetan Bon tradition.

Geshe Lhundup was born into a nomadic family in Tibet, in a small village called Damrani, at around the age of 12, he made the decision to become a monk. He entered the monastery of Patsang in Kham. Patsang is one of the great family lines of Yungdrung Bon.

He received the teachings and transmissions of Dzogchen and Trul-Khor, as well as the Tsa-Lung from several great Dzogchen masters of the Bon tradition, holders of their lineages, especially during a retreat in a cave in the mountains at 14 o'clock.

It was in 1993, at the age of 17, that Geshe Lhundup decided to leave his native country. He then went on a pilgrimage to Mount Kailash in Tibet for 2 months. He made 19 circumambulations and finally walked all the way to India. He fled with a group of 29 other people, including four other Bonpo monks, on foot across the Himalayas.

HE Yongdzin Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche, the oldest master of the Bon tradition and founder of the Triten Norbutse monastery in Nepal. He encouraged them to continue to Menri Monastery in India, where they could study to prepare for the Geshe level (PHD Doctor of Philosophy).

He studied sutras, tantras and Dzogchen, as well as Tibetan grammar, poetry, astrology, medicine, mandala painting, calligraphy, yoga and meditation. After 15 years of studies and exams, he received his Geshe diploma.

In 2010, Geshe Lhundup came to France where he teaches students who want to learn the science of the nature of the mind and who wish to discover meditation, the teachings of Dzogchen and Yundrung Bön: the ancient philosophy of Tibet.

Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche contacted him in 2013 to give him advice and offered to start teaching his students in France for the Ligmincha association. He became the resident lama in Paris and France for a few years and then decided to create his own structure, the Sagesse du Tibet association which represents him.

Geshe Lhundup now lives in Versailles, teaches in France and internationally.



Hello, my name is Silvia!

I am an Educator and Teacher of Lu Jong, Tibetan healing yoga, Mandalas and Meditation. I met "Tibetan yoga" in 2014 in Galicia and I trained as a teacher in 2018 with the Tibetan master Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche and was selected as Educator (teacher of teachers) by Tulku Lobsang in 2022, since then I have never stopped learning.

In these teachings, being based on Buddhist philosophy, we first seek compassion towards ourselves, and all sentient beings, trying to generate a mind full of joy and happiness that inspires us to be a better version of ourselves.

I was certified as a Yoga Instructor by the Yoga Alliance (200h) in 2016 and then with Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche as a teacher of Lu Jong - Tibetan Healing Yoga (2018), being Tulku-la my Refuge teacher, I follow his teachings all over Europe and I have participated in numerous Retreats with him.

I worked and lived for a year and a half at the Jamyang Buddhist Centre in London, an FPMT centre, founded by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, where I also taught regular Lu Jong classes and started my Lam Rim studies with Geshe Tenzin Namdak.

In 2019 I organised, on two occasions, the teachings of Dzogchen master Chaphur Rinpoche in Galicia, whom I met in 2015 in California; today Geshe Lhundup is the one who continues with the Dzogchen teachings in Galicia.

Main Dharma teachers: Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche; HH Kyapgon Ngawang Tenzin Rinpoche, HH Dalai Lama, Chaphur Rinpoche, Geshe Tenzin Namdak, Geshe Lhundup, Jhado Rinpoche, Khensur Jhado Rinpoche.

When I returned to Galicia I created Lhamo Mandala House, a rural house in a small village in Pontevedra, dedicated to protect and spread the ancient teachings of the Dharma and Tibetan yogas.
