Dr. Nashalla Nyinda
May 13–14, 2016
- $50.00 – Tuition
The 5 elements are a part of who we are physiologically, emotionally, and psychologically. Every major tradition in the world has a way of understanding and working with elements to increase vitality and health. The Tibetan tradition links the elements with all aspects of Buddhist practice and is intrinsically linked into the healthcare system of Tibet.
Come learn about how the Tibetan lens views the elements from a physical and spiritual viewpoint, how to apply these concepts to increase your well-being, stabilize Buddhist meditation practices, and live in greater harmony with the natural cycles and seasons.
• Understand and work with your basic nature and the elements to prevent common ailments and mental stresses.
• Learn which Buddhist practices are right for you to create deeper meditation and a more stable mind.
• If working with others in the healing arts, learn to deepen your diagnostic skills and enhance treatments.
• Learn about basic foods which harmonize the elements.
The program will be held from 6:30pm – 8:00pm on Friday night, and 9:30am – 6:00pm on Saturday at the Boulder Shambhala Meditation Center located at 1345 Spruce St, Boulder, CO.
