Hormé Warm Oil Therapy: Soothing Stress, Calming Mind (FTTM 5.5)

Hands-on Workshop with Jason Whitlow

Hormé is one of the essential healing therapies described in the root texts of Tibetan Medicine. This safe and simple method uses herbal compresses and warm oil to unwind the nervous system and deeply relax and nourish the body and mind.

Hormé can be performed as a standalone therapy, or combined with other healing modalities such as acupuncture or massage. In the Tibetan medical tradition, Hormé is one of the superior remedies for stress, anxiety, and insomnia. It is also excellent for prenatal as well as postpartum care.

In this hands-on workshop we will review the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine, focusing on the function and disorders of ‘loong’ or wind energy. We will learn about the historical use of Hormé, as well as how to identify the types of people and conditions it can benefit. We will then study the points where Hormé can be applied, learn how to prepare the oil and herbal compresses, and practice offering the therapy to each other.

Root of Tibetan Medicine: Health & Disease with Jason Whitlow (FTTM 1.2)

Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM, known in Tibetan as Sowa Rigpa or Sorig) is one of the oldest healing sciences on earth. It offers a vast medical knowledge that is accessible to everyone, and cultivates a happy mind along with a healthy body.

In this workshop, we will study the fundamental principles of health and disease in TTM.

TTM explains that the nature of health is balance, and the nature of disease is imbalance. We will study 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 an open, satisfied, and happy mind.

We will also study the fundamentals of pathology, including the causes and contributing conditions of disease. We will learn how disease manifests when the nyepa become deficient, in excess, or disordered in the body, and how diseases can be grouped into the two categories of hot-natured and cold-natured disorders.
