First of all, I wish you a Happy Losar and a prosperous and Happy Metal Mouse Year.
Secondly, I have the pleasure to tell you that, on the occasion of Losar, the International Atiyoga Foundation is publishing its Guidelines for public courses of Yantra Yoga, Vajra Dance and Khaita. We hope that we can soon publish guidelines for public meditation courses, too.
In the preamble of the Guidelines, you can read what the International Atiyoga Foundation is (briefly ATIF) and what our values are. In any case, it was created following Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s wish and it was legally founded by him in July 2018.
We are convinced that a Cultural Foundation is a suitable instrument to communicate the cultural heritage of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in the world and we are also convinced that networking among teachers through the method suggested by the guidelines is an excellent approach to collaborate.
For this reason, we propose that you enter into a relationship with ATIF by following the
instructions in the Guidelines attached, and by promoting your courses with ATIF’s logo (which Chögyal Namkhai Norbu asked us to use) and eventually by suggesting to your course participants to become friends with ATIF.
The department that supervises these courses in ATIF is called Ati Movement and Mind Department (AMMD), whose coordinator is Fabio Andrico. Fabio Andico, Adriana Dal Borgo, Laura Evangelisti, and Prima Mai constitute the so-called “Scientific Committee of advisors of ATIF”, in particular for AMMD. However, ATIF has other departments and legal/cultural entities connected to it in various ways, as Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s cultural heritage is broad. Among them: the International Dzogchen Community, the Tibetan School of Medicine – Shang Shung Institute, the School for Tibetan Language and Translation, Shang Shung Publications, and the Museum of Asian Art and Culture (MACO).
Looking forward to developing a long and fruitful collaboration.
