Emiliano has been the communication bridge between KF and the Mexican sangha for the last 3 years, involved in online meetings with the Latin American and North American sanghas. He was in charge of the Mexican sangha video offering to Rinpoche last year in a virtual celebration, and he composed the music for that video.
Emiliano is from Mexico. He has a degree in International Affairs, with professional experience in the field of international cooperation and cultural diplomacy. He is passionate about ancient cultures and about recognizing the latent potential of individuals and societies. For several years, he has been in contact with different cultures through his academic studies, travel, work life, musical experience, and teaching. He is an experienced teacher of yoga and other self-observation methods. He has taught yoga and relaxation techniques for the last 15 years in schools, universities, and retreat centers, as well as in the Valle de Bravo Prison (Estado de México). He is the creator of “Respira salud” (“Breathe health”) a comprehensive program for individuals and groups, whose aim is familiarization with breathing as a basic tool for health. He is currently teaching at the Environmental University (UMA) at Valle de Bravo, Mexico. He has traveled to India, Nepal, Canada, and New Zealand, taking teachings from different Buddhist traditions including Tibetan Buddhist teachings and empowerments, mainly with DK Rinpoche.
I met Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche in May 2012 in Mexico City during his first visit to this country. That year I traveled to India and spent 3 months in the dam ngag dzo (Collection of Precious Teachings), which took place near Bir, Himachal Pradesh. I then spent a year in Asia traveling, taking teachings, and doing some short retreats in north and south India and Nepal. In September 2015 I took Madhyamika teachings in Kathmandu, Nepal, with DKR. In December 2018 I went to Chagdud Gonpa in Brazil for 2 weeks for the Khandro Sangdu drupchen. I would love to get involved more in this mandala, contributing to the spread of Buddhist wisdom and creating a more inclusive and compassionate world.
