Tuition $150 + 2 nights

This program has been cancelled. 

Discover the powerful healing arts of Tibet through Sowa Rigpa, an ancient holistic practice spanning thousands of years. During this introductory program, we will explore the three energy principles and how they influence our emotional and mental states. Through meditation, diet, and exercises relating to the natural cycles of seasons, we will learn simple tools for identifying these energies; as well as how to antidote imbalances and create equilibrium. Applying these principles helps increase well-being, reduces symptoms of irritation, anxiety, and sluggishness and will assist in the reduction of acute or chronic conditions. The ultimate goal is to foster balance in the body and mind while encouraging a direct relationship to self. Whether Buddhist or non-Buddhist, healthcare practitioner or not, join us as we explore the time-tested wisdom of Traditional Tibetan Medicine. Beginners welcome.

This workshop can be taken on its own or can be a gateway for more in-depth training in Tibetan Medicine. Enjoy a discounted rate when combining this retreat with The Fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine: Level 1. Register for both programs together HERE.
