The “three jewels” of Tantric Buddhism are; Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. The word “Sangha” refers to the community of spiritual practitioners who are using the same methods of healing and realization, and whom you can turn to for support along the path.
The Directors and Instructors of IATE know from personal experience how essential community support is for healing trauma and overcoming internal “blocks to bliss”. We are dedicated to providing ourselves and our students sustainable systems to access ongoing support for healing.
A householder and Tantric Yogi, Lama Tashi has supported and sanctioned our use of authentic Tibetan Tantric healing methods, combined with contemporary cutting-edge knowledge about sexuality, trauma, and holistic healing, in order to create effective methods for addressing the root causes of illness and suffering in our modern world.
Each of the Directors has taken refuge in the Shangpa and Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Tantric Buddhism. Our “Root Lama” is Lama Tashi Dundrup of the Kauai Dharma Center. (Find out more about Lama Tashi here!)
It is our mission and purpose to bring these authentic and lineage based Tantric healing methods out into the world with clarity, integrity, compassion, and power.
