He is an accomplished instructor of meditation, Anu-yoga, art, feng-shui, cultural and historical studies as well as a skilled practitioner of Tibetan medicine. Lama Lhanang supports cultural education and artists and musicians and dancers around the world. He shares teachings from an unbroken lineage in a way that is fresh, cross-cultural, and current for these times.
