Lama Somananda Tantrapa is the 27th lineage holder of Qi Dao, also known as Tibetan Shamanic Qigong. He has been practicing Meditation, Qigong, Dream Yoga and Internal Martial Arts for over thirty years, primarily trained by his Grandfather who was the paragon of the Russian Martial Arts and Qi Dao Grand Master.

Lama Tantrapa was ordained as a Buddhist monk in three different orders and initiated into Subud spiritual brotherhood. His background is complex enough to include serving in the Soviet Army’s Special Forces, being kidnapped in the Ukraine and surviving several near-death experiences. In addition to being a Tibetan lama, he studied with a number of Kung-fu and Qigong masters, great teachers of Yoga and Martial Arts, as well as Native American, Hawaiian and Siberian Shamans. He is also trained in Cultural Anthropology, Meta-coaching, Hypnosis and NLP.

In addition to that, he is known as the pioneer of Qigong Coaching, author of two Qi Dao books, executive producer of the film Qi Dao – Tibetan Shamanic Qigong, creator of CD albums Qi Dao Initiation and The Art of Being in the Flow, publisher of the Basic Qi Dao Home Study Course and other multimedia learning materials. Even prior to living on Guam, seven thousand miles away from the majority of his students and clients, he created a novel method of practicing Qigong called Qigong Coaching. In the last decade, he provided wellness, peak performance and life coaching to thousands of people of all ages from all walks of life. He also serves as the executive producer and host of an Internet Radio talk show The Secrets of Qigong Masters and the publisher of Mastery Magazine.
