  • To all artists levels and aspirants

  • Each student has its own trajectory, motivation, time and abilities. Teachings are individual and flexible to try to fit best each student interest, following the module guidelines.

  • This is an art specific from Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism. You do not have to be Buddhist to learn it, though your intention, motivation and energy must be moved by the spiritual quest and dharma study. Without this, learning such art can be very difficult and frustrating, as it requires a lot of dedication, time and focus. I do practice continuously this art since 2003 and I will be happy to guide you step by step, remembering that the main effort is from the student.

  • E-mail and skype communication as needed. Prices are per modules.

  • Exercises will follow as the students deliver each previous one with satisfactory results and can be inscribed at the next level, only if previous one is complete.
