Traditional Tibetan Medicine, known in Tibetan as Sowa Rigpa, is one of the oldest healing sciences on earth. It offers a vast medical knowledge that is accessible to everyone, and cultivates good health and long life together with a happy mind.
Tibetan Medicine offers a holistic, ecological view of health that considers the balance of our body, energy, and mind together with our interdependent relationship with other beings and the environment. It uses preventative and therapeutic methods customized to the unique traits of each individual, making it a truly personalized healthcare system.
In this workshop, we will explore the fundamentals of Traditional Tibetan Medicine, including its essential understanding of health and disease, its sophisticated assessment techniques, and its many practical healing methods including lifestyle and diet guidelines, herbal medicines, massage and external therapies, and healing breath and yoga practices.
This workshop is open to everyone, with no prerequisites.
