Three Energy Principles of Tibetan Healing & Tibetan Medicine 1
April 24–May 1, 2015
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.
Continue your education in Tibetan Medicine and deepen your understanding of healing with this retreat. Building on your basic knowledge of the three energy principles, we will now explore the sacred text The Root Tantra. You will discover how to apply the three energies as they relate directly to symptoms and exactly how disorders arise and manifest. We will also introduce the six tastes, their effect upon the body, as well as their characteristics. The level one program lays a solid foundation for future courses. Prerequisite: The Three Energy Principles of Tibetan Healing, or an equivalent workshop
