About Us

Bret Bourman 


Communication and Administration - USA

I have been working for the Shang Shung Institute in the USA now for several years, working in the field of Administration and Communication. Within the School of Tibetan Medicine I am Personal Assistant to the International Director, Dr. Phuntsog Wangmo and look after Instructional Design, Web Development, Video Production and Post Production and general accounting.

I believe that collaborating on the Institute’s goals and objectives as fostered by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu for the preservation of Tibetan culture are wonderful circumstances with which to work. The Institute benefits others and one can clearly see how this functions by observing the Institute’s School of Tibetan Medicine: we educate physicians who are then able to help many people who are then in turn better able to be of use to themselves and others, benefiting an even greater number of people. This is a direct example.


I am a Visual Artist, Principal Ballet Dancer, Art Director, Business Principal and Health Care Professional.
