Introduction to Tibetan Medicine
Jul

9:30 AM09:30

Introduction to Tibetan Medicine

Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM) is one of the oldest healing sciences in existence. It offers a vast medical knowledge that is accessible to everyone, and supports the cultivation of a happy mind along with a healthy body.

In this workshop we will gain an overview of the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine. We will explore essential concepts including interdependent connection (tendrel), cause and effect (karma), and continuous authentic education (tantra), and will learn how the building blocks of the five elements form our body, energy, mind, and the world around us.

We will also learn about the dynamic energetic qualities known as the three nyepa (loong, treepa, and beken, or wind, bile, and phlegm) as well as the seven body constituents and three waste products. We will learn how, when these energetic and physical aspects are in balance, we enjoy good health, long life, and a balanced and happy mind, and when they are imbalanced, we experience disease.

Students who have not previously studied the Root Tantra (FTTM 1.1–1.4 or TTM 1.1) and who wish to attend the July 7–10 Ku Nye Tibetan Massage Intensive, the July 12–13 Channels & Points workshop, or the July 14–15 Mebum Cupping Therapy workshop must take this workshop as a prerequisite.

This workshop serves as an introduction to the two-year Foundations of TTM program in Tibetan Medicine & External Therapies offered by Sorig Khang Bay Area. Students are welcome to attend individual workshops, or the entire program. Learn more →

Introduction to Tibetan ‘La’ Massage
Apr

8:00 AM08:00

Introduction to Tibetan ‘La’ Massage

10 AM – 6 PM Central

‘La’ Massage is one of the subtle energetic treatments from the Tibetan medical tradition. It is used to replenish the vital protective energy known as ‘la’, described in both the Tibetan medical and astrological traditions as an essence of our consciousness. ‘La’ energy pervades the body, circulating through it on a lunar cycle and giving us strength and vigor, as well as bliss, sensitivity, and satisfaction. Signs of depleted ‘la’ energy include feelings of tiredness, sadness, and anxiety, a fuzzy mind, and a grayish complexion.

In this workshop, we will review the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine, including the five elements and three humors, and will learn how their gross and subtle forms (including ‘la’ energy) manifest in our body, energy, and mind. Jason will then introduce the practice of ‘La’ Massage, including the visualizations, recitations, and techniques used to contact and replenish this protective energy. Advice will also be given on how we can gather and protect ‘la’ energy in our day-to-day life, as a means of supporting our vitality and sense of blissful well-being.

We will then learn and practice some of the twenty-four Nejang exercises and explore their specific therapeutic applications using the Nejang text and commentaries.
