From April 24th to 26th Lobsang will teach us how to pronounce some of Khaita's songs correctly and he will explain their meaning. 

It will be an opportunity for all, whether students of Tibetan language or not, whether experts of Khaita or complete beginners, to deepen the pronunciation and meanings of many songs which we will then sing and dance together under the guide of Adriana dal Borgo and Salima Celeri.

Lobsang Zatul was born in Tibet from where he left at the age of eleven. Since 1963 he lives in Switzerland. He was fortunate to grow up with his parents who taught him correct Tibetan. He has been teaching Tibetan, both spoken and written, to Tibetans and non-Tibetans for more than thirty years.
As a student of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu he is devoting his time and energy to the preservation of the Tibetan language.

Adriana Dal Borgo

For more than twenty years I have been teaching contemplative dance and methods of awareness in movement, harmonization of energy, and the practice of presence through sound and dance, giving courses for those who wish to follow this path of knowledge.

Born in Venice, Italy, I graduated in psychology, with specialization in psychotherapy. In 1986 I met the Dzogchen (Atiyoga) teaching of the Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, from whom I learned the Vajra Dance – a method for integrating meditation and movement – and later on the Khaita Joyful Dances.

In 1992 I was appointed by my Master to teach the Vajra Dance. In 1995 together with Prima Mai I was authorized to coordinate the activities related to this discipline in the different centers of the International Dzogchen Community and to train new instructors, thus becoming one of the two main Vajra Dance teachers. From that time, I’ve held many courses and trained new teachers around the world, helping students to discover the joy and profoundness of the Dance.

Dancer and choreographer, from 2011 I have been also charged with coordinating the Khaita Joyful Dances and training new teachers in this field of study. Read More
