About Lama D
Lama Dungtsho brings a unique integration of strict Buddhist monastic training, ancient cultural wisdom of Bhutan, plus decades of teaching, healing, political activity, and equanimity. In his “Dharma talks” he explains the Natural Laws of living and dying using creative metaphors. His formal title, Lama Dungtsho, means “Tibetan Doctor”.
Lama D’s online Dharma courses are highly regarded by Bhutanese followers of Lama Je Khempo, the head of all Bhutan monasteries. Lama D teaches daily classes for 8,000 students through social media Dharma groups in Dzongkha, the language of Bhutan. His groups are called “Tharpi Sabuen” meaning “Seeds for Paradise”. He teaches how to plant seeds by every word and action, to help all beings move beyond the 3D physical world of Samsara, where we experience the repeated cycle of death and rebirth.
Lama D teaches basics we all need to learn such as: How to live almost stress-free, and how to to be at ease in the moment. He teaches practical skills including meditation, sacred chanting, how to balance the mind, and how to live in the modern world without creating Karma.
A graduate of Simtokha Dzong and Tango Buddhist Institute in Bhutan, Lama Dungtsho earned his Master’s degree in Buddhist philosophy. He performs and teaches visualizations and chants for healing and protection. An author of six books in Dzongkha language, he offers breathing exercises for physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional harmony. He is versed in how to use chants for specific purposes, summoning the wisdom of Shakyamuni Buddha, Guru Rinpoche, Padmasambhava, and Milarepa. Lama D also teaches and practices Tibetan Kunye Massage.
Lama D’s training and experience give him a wealth of knowledge, merging ancient wisdom in modern times. Unlike many Lamas, he has been forced to surmount complex life challenges of relationships, parenting, money, and chaos of society, while living the Dharma purely. Lama D and Sri Jana live at Keramas Sacred River Village in Bali, where they offer transformational healing retreats.
Srijana, aka Jane Barthelemy, is an intuitive medium, author, Buddhist Kundalini practitioner, teacher, and healer. She teaches transformational healing to align the body, mind, and spirit.
Her life path includes a deep commitment to be free of preconceptions and limiting thoughts, to allow healing shifts to take place gently and permanently without invasive methods. A certified BodyTalk Practitioner, Accunect practitioner, 3rd degree Reiki Master, Qigong Guide, and MBA, Sri Jana is a lifetime practitioner of Tibetan Buddhist meditation for over 50 years. She trains others how to listen deeply and observe quietly without judgment or opinion.
Sri Jana’s journey has been circuitous and surprising.
Sri Jana grew up in a non-traditional family of scientists, world travelers, artists, and teachers. She studied music, languages, and writing, receiving her BS in Opera and Russian, and MBA from Indiana University.
She began her inner journey under Swami Rudrananda. The first American-born Swami, Rudi was a brilliant spiritual “heavyweight” master who studied with Tibetan masters, Pak Sudbud, Gurjieff, Shankaracharya of Puri, and the Mahasiddha Baghavan Nityananda. Rudi integrated many traditions into a highly effective practice for modern times. Sri Jana continued her Buddhist studies with Lama Tshering Wangdu Rinpoche, a lineage holder of the Longchen Nyingthig, Shije, and Chöd traditions.
A life-long practitioner of Buddhism for over 50 years, Srijana is also a trained chef. She has her MBA and worked for 10 years as CFO and partner of the original Rudi’s Bakery. An artist and jewelry designer, Sri Jana created Marco Polo Designs, an international Venetian glass jewelry business. The discovery of her opera voice took her to Italy, where she sang major soprano roles. Click on the Diva picture to hear a sample aria.
Personal illness led to her deep interest in physical health and its intimate relationship to mental and spiritual balance. Her journey to self-healing from cancer, multiple food allergies, chronic fatigue, total adrenal failure, digestive collapse, multiple food-chemical sensitivities, frozen shoulders, and shingles, gives her a unique perspective of a natural healing path.
“I have enormous respect for Srijana’s channeling and intuitive ability. Her integrity is of the highest order. The difficulties in our lives serve to season us like a sword, in time making the metal strong, efficient, gentle, and swift to the mark. I trust Srijana’s careful interpretation of all the challenging issues she handles so gracefully. I feel honored to know her, and grateful for her contribution to humanity.” Brian S.
