This education offers a personal work on the body and the spirit in connection with the philosophy of the Buddhist Tantrayana. The Tibetan Practices of the Five Elements is a rapid transformation technique that helps address the stressful issues that our society today encounters. Tibetan Practices of the Five Elements is a complete method that works as long as you respect its integrity. It is essential to understand that the elements that comprise its practice cannot be mixed with other traditions, just as other traditions cannot integrate the Tibetan Practices of the Five Elements. When we do the Tibetan Five Element Practices, we do the Tibetan Five Element Practices, we do not add Indian yoga or reiki ... in the same way, when we practice Indian yoga or the 'we do reiki, we do not add elements from the Tibetan Practices of the Five Elements. Splitting the practices is a pledge of respect for Tulku Lobsang and the guarantee of a method that will bring its benefits.


You must participate 100% of the education. If you cannot come for the whole education, you can catch up either by setting up a catch-up course (paying). No refund will be made if you decide to stop the education.

Theoretical study is carried out through education and the study of a manual which is issued to you in PDF format as part of the education. The various chapters of the manual are delivered to you online on your extranet as we progress. The complete PDF version will be sent to you as soon as we have finalized the oral transmission. If you stop the training before having finalized it, then you will only have received the chapters corresponding to the courses you have taken.

An extranet located on our site www.e-yogameditation will bring together all the elements of the course.



Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche received the teachings of Lu Jong from the Bön tradition at the age of 11. At the same time, he received the teachings and transmissions of almost all the Tibetan lineages, except those of the Nyingma tradition. This approach is very rare because it is very difficult. He is thus considered Rimé, that is to say non-sectarian. He studied Buddhist meditation, medicine and astrology. In contact with Westerners, Tulku Lobsang decided to collect Lu Jong exercises from different traditions and lineages, then he modified and adapted them for the human body of Western man so that people of all ages and physical conditions can practice them.


Tulku Lobsang presents to His Holiness the Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso the practices he teaches to Westerners.

Tibetan medicine

works to restore the balance between the elements.

However, who says "balance" means that there will also be an "imbalance" ready to manifest.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

In Tantrayana,

we therefore go further in order not to seek only balance, but transformation.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Each element manifests in various ways on the physical body and on the subtle body, the latter being our energy body.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Our consciousness is closely related to the state of our energy body. Each element manifests a mental aspect.

Pure and unclean mental aspect.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

By acting on the elements, we allow the transformation from our impure mental aspects to our pure mental aspects.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

We thus switch from negative, disruptive emotions such as pride, attachment, anger, jealousy, greed, to beneficial emotions such as calm, non-self, compassion, love, 'equanimity.

We are thus working on the 5 main poisons of Buddhism.

  • the kyang (a horse endemic to Tibet),

  • the Falcon,

  • Mount Kailash (mountain located in western Tibet).
