About Our Name

Sorig (short for Sowa Rigpa, Tib. གསོ་བ་རིག་པ་) means the ‘Science of Healing’ in the Tibetan language — it is the traditional name of Tibetan and Himalayan Medicine. Khang (Tib. ཁང་) means ‘house’ or 'center', a place where something is held, practiced, and shared. Thus Sorig Khang means a ‘Center for the Science of Healing’ or a ‘Center for Tibetan Medicine’.
