10 AM – 6 PM Central
Hormé is one of the essential healing therapies described in the root texts of Tibetan Medicine. This safe, simple, and portable method uses warm herbal compresses and oil to unwind the nervous system, deeply relaxing and nourishing 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 the wind element. 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 make the herbal compresses, and practice offering the therapy to each other.
This workshop is open to everyone. Students are encouraged to attend the Saturday workshop as well, especially if this is your first encounter with Tibetan Medicine.
