Cairn  Strategic  Tsa-rLung  Coaching

Tsa-rLung Applied Psycho-Pedagogy & Philosophy Postgraduate

" Tsa-rLung  Applied Psycho-Pedagogy & Philosophy Postgraduate"





The new CAIRN   " Tsa-rLung  Applied Psycho-Pedagogy & Philosophy " Certificate is based upon a synthesis of previously organized EU- postgraduate options in HRD, Applied Psychology, Counselling, Crisis Prevention and other upgraded European Curricula in Organization Management and Humanitarian Assistance. The ongoing peace initiatives in Nepal, have led us to seek for a practical synthesis of the traditional non-violent Dharma philosophy, inclusive of   the comparative study of the European and Tibetan Traditional Healing Philosophy, which could be translated in Applied Psychology for the upgrading of skills in terms of more modern tools.

   The One Year Certificate is based on a personalized project, which includes cultural immersion, e-Learning Mixed Mode and Continuing Education Coaching methodology designed to encourage the target-site Bauddha Stupa youth and other students, monks or NGOs professionals, to progress into further studies focused on Applied Psychology and Personal Development skills. This programme credibility is inherited from partnerships with local High Education Institutions (HEIs), Traditional Health Services, NGOs, Gompas and other community groups involved social/health development and spiritual venues.

CAIRN fully abides to the basic principles of Spiritual Coaching. During your journey, we will share and seek with you, through a non directive Quest how to best approach the established wisdom and teachings of  late Tarab Tulku Rimpoche, H.H. Dudjom Rimpoche, H.H. Dilgo Khyentse, as well as of masters and yogis still well alive today, so as to create and nurture with you a new path to the Body of Light Awareness, Rejuvenation and Wisdom. Fundamentally, this is a Laboratory on Tsa-rLung Psycho-Pegagogy and Ethics.

  CAIRN Objectives

CAIRN has genuine cross-cultural  immersion learning and research experience as its main goalAs an innovative R&D initiative in Euro-Asia university and High Education Institutions (HEIs)  linkages, this platform  is widely regarded as timely and appropriate, provided that key element of its strategy be refocused as much on the future of sustainable and relevant high education exchange niches, as on addressing Asian LDCs pressing priorities and bringing more awareness on Nepal dramatic current issues. This innovative programme is accordingly the only one of its kind today, which links Nepalese students/trainees, European researchers and the local spiritual assets with strategic sites selected needs in the Himalayan region and places them accordingly at grassroots level in a most favorable position to assess the prospective of Asia. While on the one hand, it addresses the future relations of Europe with Asian LDCs emerging economies and the result of imported development policies, Cairn also seeks for innovative, beneficial and ethical personal development avenues within the rich traditional, philosophical and cultural heritage of the Himalayas, which as tools in terms of attitude, knowledge and decision-making process may lead to better understanding, mutual respect and collaboration.

Given that this programme is fundamentally about creating and expanding new and sustainable structural opportunities for students, researchers and trainees to share and upgraded their practices, knowledge, attitude and awareness of Tsa-rLung Applications, it will remain flexible and based upon students projects,  within a Menu of Open Learning ECTS/ECDL Options. While the present set of priorities range from ‘Human Resource Development’ (HRD), ‘Online Curriculum Development’ and other technical categorizations,  emphasis is being brought to cover areas of a very practical use in situ, being: Social/Health Anthropology, Clinical Anthropology, Psychotherapy, Ethnomedicine, Drug Abuse Counselling Training, Tsa-rLung Tibetan Medicine Energotherapy, Tantras, Philosophy, Languages, Arts & Humanities, Investigation and other topics which may be developed without limitations by students or trainees in order to address their project objectives.

CAIRN follows the recent European Commission  decisions (Erasmus Mundus) to develop and strengthen European/Asian co-operation and international links in higher education by supporting high-quality  European/Asian   Joint-curriculum Masters Courses, enabling students and visiting scholars to engage in postgraduate study at European universities, as well as by encouraging the outgoing mobility of European students and scholars towards third Asian countries.

CAIRN proceeds by using both Cultural Immersion (Tour&Study) in selected strategic sites in Asia, as well as a combination of online courses, lectures, seminars, group work and practical fieldwork, including a dissertation. Students will be continuously assessed by tutors online on the basis of their essays, report writing and presentation of portfolios. There are no examinations for this programme, as the final aim is based on personalized experiential and tailored project which fulfillment will require genuine and continuous efforts on the ground...

CAIRN also wants to follow the inspiring and innovative drive, launched in the early 1980s by late Tarab Tulku Rimpoche, Trungpa Rimpoche, Dudjom Rimpoche, Kyentse Rimpoche, as well as continued nowadays by Namgyal Rimpoche (Dudjom) Tenzin Wangyal Rpch, Lopon Tenzin Namdak (Bonpo) and others, in their continuous efforts to facilitate a more transparent and scientific approach to the concepts and practices of Dzogchen and the "Body of Light".

Directly linked in Nepal with the experiential nature of the Vajrayana philosophy, tools and practices in its natural context, CAIRN allows researchers to gain a more intimate embodiment with the Sacred Healing Arts, as it may still be found in the Himalayan Ayurveda, Chinese Qi-Qong and Tibetan Medicine Tsa-rLung living traditions.

The purpose of this professional training programs is to train students in the Applied Psychology Market-niche professional areas in the discipline for an upgraded synthesis between Psychotherapy, Counselling, Humanitarian Assistance and Traditional Psychology. Each personal project is designed to provide: (i) a grounding in the theoretical, conceptual and empirical foundations of Tibetan Medicine Psychology, cum skills relevant to the various areas of specialized professional practice of the trainees; (ii) a supervision of bot therical knowledge and practical experience, as required under EU- Postgraduate and Professional Thesis ECTS/ECDL, being adapted to the Himalayan context; and (iii) a focus on action research  in the selected areas of professional specialization for answering the current Himalayan priorities.

Compared with more conventional Psychology academic programs, CAIRN programs will provide a strong cultural immersion research basis for Westerners interested in future professional activities in Asia, as well as facilitate knowledge and certification for Asian trainees interested in further insights in Applied Psychology professional practices (Gompas, NGOs, INGOs, HEIs and SMEs).

CAIRN offers a rigorous but flexible program of experiential cultural immersion study options, grounded on the methodology of Adult Continuous Education Mixed Mode ECTS/ECDL  and e-Learning Certificationresources in the integrated fields of Health Anthropology, Humanitarian Assistance, Applied Psychology to Counselling and Tibetan Medicine Energotherapy. Based on the comparative approach of the Tibetan Nyingma tradition, it is enriched with studies and practices from other faiths, practices and philosophies, such as the Qi Qong, Tao, Keltic, Shamanic and Yogas healing traditions, as well as western science, pedagogy, psychology and organizational leadership training methods.

The curriculum follows levels of a stepwise knowledge and embodiment coursework, designed to develop a fully qualified practice in ethical organizational leadership, healing and counselling. The levels correspond to EU Postgraduate and Professional Doctorate levels study. Serious students who don't want to complete the whole curriculum and people non interested in certification, per se, but would like to follow CAIRN Experiential Tours & Study practices are also welcome to participate.

CAIRN Orgyen Gyaltsen Choling (OGC) e-Psychotherapy Courses, Seminars and Cultural Immersion Options are organized within the framework of the Euro-Nepal Academic Research & Development Unit, and based upon physical and online resources for Adult Continuous Education (e-learning Mixed Mode) being selected in Nepal, India, Tibet/China, UK and Europe.



CAIRN Development Mission

CAIRN mission is to provide new learning opportunities for adult students, monks and NGOs trainees, linked to the prospective of Applied Psychology, Pedagogy and Traditional Philosophy tools to answer better local needs, wherever and whenever it is possible.

CAIRN Strategic Tsa-rLung Coaching is dedicated to transforming the practice of community leadership and to helping create cultures of engagement for high performance/high fulfillment organizations that bring out the best in people in terms of  Personal or Organizational Renewal and Leadership, this by using the precious legacy of the Tibetan Tsa-rLung Body of Light Practices and Vajrayana Philosophy (ref- Dudjom OTG Namgyal Rimpoche).

We believe that personal development should be targeted, relevant, stimulating and above all practical. We are deeply convinced that the current actuality of the Himalayan region will bring enormous changes and opportunities at both the Asian and international levels. We are passionate of the role of spiritual elite and Subtle Energy Body Awareness can bring as evolution prospective to Human Being, Society and the World, as a whole.



CAIRN Open Learning Options

It is our aim to widen participation by formerly excluded and under-represented social groups in higher continuous education. Also, we want to create a self-sustainable bridge between people practicing Dharma in the West, and those in the target-site Bauddha Stupa.

That is why we deliver our Options at non-accredited, accredited, part-time degree and post-graduate levels, being certified as Cross-cultural Awareness Postgraduate Programme of a duration between one year (Certificate) and three years (Diploma).

This includes a personal research or training project, conceived within a  flexible ECTS/ECDL menu, which options are organized from the SXC/Cairn selected supervision resources, based in Nepal, northern India, Tibet TAR China, Canada, USA, UK and EU.

It is also our intention, after a careful review of current evolving education exchange and immigration frameworks, to expand the ongoing activities of experts in our learning centres in Europe/UK and Canada/USA in such a way as to try and answer better the community needs in terms of Applied Psychology, Pedagogy and Traditional Philosophy Training.

We strive to respond to all students in a holistic manner. We aim to provide a legal, safe and supportive learning environment. We offer  personalized Coaching, as well as selected teachings, seminars, online courses and field-research resources, focused on both personal and local development priorities.

Perceived and conceived in a world view which is linked with the current Himalayan and Asian geo-political, social and educational prospective, the synthesis of tools being proposed will allow trainees and students to rediscover and understand the transmuting context of Asia, linking cross-cultural awareness experiential with teaching on the Subtle Energy level, and working with the emotions and representations linked to their enfolding destiny.

Cairn Tsa-rLung Certificate is primarily based on a Personal Research Project including, as required by ECTS/ECDL guidelines, a project paper presentation, group seminars, Mixed Mode online courses and instructors face-to-face activities.  This allows for flexible learning experiences based upon the needs of a specific research. The number of supervision meetings will depend upon the project TOR chosen.

Each Research Project conducts a qualitative investigation into the Tsa-rLung Applied Psychology Healing experiences, and will be supervised within the academic framework of a pilot evaluation strategy implemented from the cohort of participants studying such module. The evaluation methodology is based on both the assessment of mixed-mode e-learning, as well as Project Papers, which include the subjective, perceptual and experiential aspects of the learners’ experiences.



Tsa-rLung Traditional Healing

Tibetan Traditional Medicine healing practice ‘Tsa-rLung’, may also be also called ‘hand healing’, these two Tibetan words meaning, per se: ‘channels-wind’. Similar to the Reiki and Tai-Ji this is a Tibetan version of these well known techniques for energy healing. Similarly it may be traced back in Central Asia and Tibet Himalayan Shamans, either in Bon-Pos or Amchis Traditional Healing since thousands of years ago, and so far has been preserved in the Tibetan Materia Medica, Tsa-rLung Lamas, Dzogchen Lamas and Nagpas Yoga Lineages, presenting today various forms all issued from the identical Shamanic Healing Roots, but sometimes presented to Westerners nowadays as part of an so-called secret knowledge. Practically, it simply can be learned, practices and experienced in ways being similar to other sources, such as in Ajna Yoga, Pranadi / Panorama Yogas, Reiki, Tai-Ji and Acupuncture developmental curricula.

The technique of the Tibetan Tsa-rLung practice, is derived from the Tsa-rLung-‘khrul’khor-gyi-bcos-thabs, a yogic tantric tradition of ancient Tibetan and Indian Buddhist masters. More than 2500 years ago, Buddha’s healing hands cured many people in this world and the tradition is still practiced by the Tibetan lamas and spiritual masters. They cure the people by giving love, compassion, and spiritual energy, tantric and mantric power. They transfer positive energy through their hands by touch and restore the body/mind imbalances. This practice entirely belongs to the Buddhist teaching and practice.

The proper flow of the energy through the body channels (Tsa) brings the cause of a good health and prolongs life. It helps to avoid the toxin accumulation in the channels which blocks the channels and rLung/wind energy in the heart of the body/mind. The Tsa-rLung therapy practitioners learn the art of holistic healing and the deep nature of the human body/mind systems by knowing the structure of the traditional psycho-physical nature and its functions. One who understands the method may become able to regulate these complex systems. Certain subjects are beyond the human knowledge and can only be experienced by meditation and practice.

In principle, learning the techniques of Tsa-rLung healing involves various steps. Firstly, the body must be attuned to the more subtle perception level of the energy body for giving healing. The channels are to be (re-)opened by various embodiments, breathing exercises, body movements and visualizations/meditations, and the channels elements and humours must be well-balanced. Thereafter, using the Tumo Yoga for heat energy or the Tigle visualization for channelling, again by means of the personalized energy practices, one must become able to generate Tumo heat and control the energy, then to release and control the healing energy. IN principle also, Tsa-rLung techniques use various type of wind energy to guide healing energy to the person undergoing treatment.

However, there is also a more Tantric or artistic way to perceive and control healing energies by using Performing Arts, Archetypes Painting Visualisation, Sacred Dance Embodiment, Divination Rituals, Pujas, Mandalas Yoga and other Himalayan Shamanic tools, which may apply their benevolent effect on the soul, mind and body of oneself or of patients, by opening channels, embody archetypes energy and/or restoring the balance of the spirits and elements, for purpose of inspiration, visualization, healing and rejuvenation.

Shamanic healing techniques, when duly controlled by an experienced practitioner, may at a same time cleanse the energy body and open possibility for better communication between ones higher-self and the normal consciousness. As soon as a channel between the higher-self and the consciousness is initiateds, healing and visualization can go much further. Dreams, divination, intuition, inspirations, visualization of energy body(ies) and a new awareness directly will affect, on a very practical and day-to-day basis, ones very personal experiences. It helps to bring an entire human being into a more harmonious state of mind and relationship with people, their natural world or any contextual circumstances.

Reiki,  Shamanic Healing Traditions and Tibetan healing tradition Tsa-Lung, are working together. It seems to me as if a big puzzle is very gently put together by invisible hands and helps to give us an idea what our existence could be about. 

 All these healing methods whether they are ancient or lately channeled, once we have worked with them, integrated them into our life and felt and trusted the inner, hidden message within these techniques, help us to  realize that our life is changing. How could we possibly not hear the message behind it. Healing and the development of loving kindness are going hand in hand and help us to do the next step further.

Cairn Tsa-rLung Healing & Performing Arts always will include explanations on the concepts, systems and techniques involved, as well as the medical knowledge required for proper healing. All participants will be guided through the exercises and visualisation, and of course initiated in healing power, when necessary.



Comprehensive Training

CAIRN  Tsa-rLung curriculum is generally divided into sub-modules, which are flexible and can be tailored to any particular background, praxis, needs or audience. Although the content is of a rather sophisticated nature, for being linked with conceptualization, visualization and control of the Subtle Energy Body and channels, the language and practices are accessible and jargon-free, making the training and material user-friendly for participants, at all levels and disciplines.

The training is a dynamic combination of prior- tested conceptual references and experiential exercises. Emphasizing the critical concepts of awareness, empowerment and developmental collaboration, CAIRN training focuses on three major goals:

  • A theoretical framework to guide work in healing, self-healing and counselling

  • Specific diagnosis and intervention techniques to use either with clients or self

  • Attention to the internal needs of consensual archetypal coherence, tantric awareness procedures, cleansing and lineage protection or powerplaces

In addition, the curriculum cogently addresses the common questions, concerns, and skepticism about the Tibetan Medicine Materia Medica, Traditional Shamanic Healing, Hermeneutic Awareness in Tibetan Group focused praxis and on treatment efficacy. Participants are given many opportunities to question conceptual references, address core issues with Trainers, as well as test and practice their new skills.

Buddhist Psychology and Psychotherapy

Tibetan Medicine Tsa-rLung Psychology and Psychotherapy is unlike the Western approach imbedded deeply in experiential as the basis of knowledge. It is deeply related to Buddhist Philosophy concepts of the nature of mind and energy, and its approach to understand the mind and its nature. Especially, it looks to the mind and mental health in its purely philosophical and spiritual bases. Its soft approach and development of human natural psychology gives way to the understanding of many causes of psychological disequilibrium.

The Tibetan Medicine Tsa-rLung psychology course presents and analyzes the possible points of contact between Buddhist psychology and modern psychology. It includes a detailed study of the unique psychological aspects of Tibetan Buddhism and an explanation of the functions of the mind. It illustrates the appropriate therapeutic techniques to provide the students with a training meant to understand the patient’s needs. The course provides a sound basis for the diagnosis and therapy appropriate to the psycho-somatic disturbance to optimize the quality of the cure and to re-establish balance and health in the subject.

The course also deals with psychosomatic concept and methods of Tibetan meditation, yoga, respiration, visualization, mantric recitation, dream and various other healing methods according to the Tibetan medical tradition and medical psychology. The ancient patrimony of Tibetan culture is an articulated complex of knowledge which can give doctors and psychologists the possibility of enriching their practice with a holistic approach and related techniques.

  Tsa-rLung  Introduction Sub-modules

 Tsa-rLung experiential training is divided into 5 Sub-modules:


Tsa-rLung Energy Body Concepts (Dudjom lineage)

CAIRN has chosen as a principal concepts for training practices :

  • Ngondrö (ref- Namgyal Rimpoche, Jadral Rimpovhe, Ralou Rpch):

    As the foundation of the teaching, the courses will begin with the preliminary practices, which focus on the purification of the Outer Doors (Body and Speech). Ngondrö consists of contemplation, insight, purification, offering and devotion practices. You will have the opportunity to receive clear explanations into the details of actually engaging in the practice ("tri"). You will also have the chance to engage in the actual practices on many occasions.


  • Tsa-rLung (idem) :

    After Ngondrö, the next step is to work with the breath and the positive and negative channels. The Tsa Lung practice is considered secret. As a result, those wishing admittance to this retreat must: 1) complete their Ngondrö accumulations; 2) have special permission resulting from an interview; and 3) be able to participate in the retreat. The traditional signs of accomplishment, the generation of inner heat, will be measured at this retreat. Retreatants should be prepared to participate in a lot of physical activity.


  • Tibetan Medicine Body & Mind Cleansing (Amchi Jampa, Amchi Kunzang, Amchi K. Dorje, Amchi Tashi Pedon, Amchi Tenzin Wangpo...) :

    The Tibetan cleansing therapy practice is generally performed during a Medicine Buddha retreat, but it can also be performed anytime when required by the person. This practice helps to remove toxins and heal the energetic disorders left by intoxication, smoking, alcohol and unhealthy food and drinks. The practice is derived from Tibetan medicine and is very gentle and smooth. It is accompanied with yoga exercises that help move the entire toxins and liberate the body/mind from burdens of negative influences. It also helps keep the mind clear and clean and improves meditation and awareness. The method is also used as a preliminary purification to the spiritual practice, and especially the rejuvenation practices.

    The rejuvenation therapy is practiced along with the Medicine Buddha retreat, or separately with the Tibetan body/mind cleansing retreat. The practice is a very important method described in Tibetan Medicine for those who wish to remain young and have a powerful body/mind. The secret art of the rejuvenation is made from combining special ingredients and their process of detoxification. It is an ancient method that improves the body strength, function of sensory and general organs, and prolongs life with Ciudlen pills (extracted essence of herbs and minerals). There are numerous rejuvenating healing herbs growing in the mountains and also in the terrains.


  • Tibetan Tantric Yoga (  Trul-khor & LueJong)

    The Tibetan tantric yoga is a practice that has been done by Indian and Tibetan yogis for centuries, and is not like the normal yoga practiced in the West. It is a practice of rLung (psychic wind) and exercise of the mind and psychic wind purely based on spiritual development, which was laid down by the tantric tradition of master Pundit Naropa and Lama Marpa Lotsawa. The exercice removes the negative energies from the channels and chakras by physical positions and movements which harmonize wind and mind and release inner stress and tension. The yoga technique basically helps stimulate the channels and chakras, and gives an experience of realization of the mind and its function.

Trul khor (lit. "magical machine") is a Tibetan physical yoga practice which includes breath awareness, mental concentration and precise movements designed to bring the body of the practitioner into the perfect balance: a machine-like perfection to free the practitioner from drowsiness, agitation, and dullness. It is appropriate for all levels of fitness. A longer title Tsa lung Trul khor means "magical movement machine, channels and inner breath currents".

Trul khor traditionally consists of 108 movements, including bodily movements, breathing, and visualisations, all performed to a specific heart rhythm timing. The body postures of tibetan ancient yogis are depicted on the walls of the Dalai Lama's summer temple of Lukhang. It is thought to have originated over many centuries as a combination of ancient Bon movements, Indian hatha yoga, and Chinese movement forms. Tibetan physical yogas vary slightly between lineages and the complexity of the practices is often kept secret until a high level of commitment has been made by the practitioner.


  • Yoga of the Elements
    The Yoga element meditation is a special yogic practice used to purify our basic five elements and re-balance the body/mind and energies. It is a method that should first visualize space and later the other elements and their colors one by one. It should also purify one’s own body, organs, channels, consciousness, subtle wind energies, and subtle and gross bodies through mental exercises. The instructor guides the practice with verbal instructions and participants listen to the instruction and heal themselves through the elements visualization.


Also references to...

  • clear light togyal (ref- Namgyal Rpch Dudjom Gompa),

  • inner togyal (idem),

  • darkness practice (idem),

  • dream yoga practice (ref- late Tarab Tulku),

  • working with the elements (ref- Tenzin Wangyal)

  • training in the nature of sound (ref- Any Chowing Drolma)

  • Tibetan Medicine tantra and pure realms practice.

References also exist to Terma spiritual treasures that were concealed by Padmasambava and his close disciples to be revealed at a later, more appropriate time. These termas were hidden in both physical elements and within beings mind streams, to be remembered and revealed in later incarnations.


The Body of Light (a synthesis with Dzogchen Togyal)

The complete explanation of these practices is only given from a master to a student these teachings are appropriate. With the practice of Trekchö, one cuts through delusion with diamond-like thoroughness. When this has been thoroughly accomplished, the master will introduce Tögyal, a Dzogchen practice through which, via the posture and the gaze, one works directly with the light inherent in all phenomena using specific practices to reveal it within him or herself. Both of these practices are indispensable for a deep understanding of what occurs in the between states that arise after death. These practices can only be achieved through receiving the inspiration and blessing from a living master who has realized them.

Illustration of Tsa-rLung Healing in Tibetan Medicine Praxis

Proper flow of energy through the body channels (Tsa) brings the cause of a good health and prolongs life. It helps to avoid the toxin accumulation in the channels which blocks the channels and heart functions of the body/mind. The Tsa-rLung therapy practitioners learn the art of holistic healing and the deep nature of the human body/mind systems by knowing the structure of the traditional psycho-physical nature and its functions. One who understands the method may become able to regulate these complex systems. Certain subjects are beyond the human knowledge and can only be experienced by meditation and practice. The Tsa-rLung practice starts with the knowledge on Tsa, ‘channels‘, and how to use the wind power through yogic practice. The concentration, meditation and visualization as well as love and compassion motivation are this tradition's way of practice.
