Did you know that Ligmincha International is run by a Board of Directors, a group of dedicated volunteer leaders and a small administrative staff? Many of the activities and projects that are continually under way at Ligmincha are managed and implemented by these volunteers, who are vital to the success of the organization.

Frank Jeri GomezThe newest board member is Frank Jeri Gomez of Peru. Frank Jeri first encountered Bön in 2010 and immediately felt a deep connection with Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and his spiritual lineage. He has served as board member for The 3 Doors since 2015, and currently offers 3 Doors teachings as a presenter and seminar leader. Professionally, Frank works as Wellness and Development Director for the Peruvian University of Applied Sciences. He holds master's degrees in business administration and in management and leadership. He and his wife, Eli, live with their daughter Muriel in Lima, Peru.

The role of the Ligmincha International Board of Directors is twofold:

  • The board works with Ligmincha's Spiritual Director Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche to understand his vision and priorities for Ligmincha International. It then develops policies and procedures based on his guidance for the international community of practitioners.
  • The board listens to the voices of the sanghas and individual practitioners around the world and works to ensure that Ligmincha is supporting them as fully as possible.
