Sowa Rigpa: Tibetan Health and Healing

Sowa Rigpa: Tibetan Health and Healing
Wednesday June 21st
6:30 - 8:30pm

Traditional Tibetan Medicine, known as Sowa Rigpa, the ‘Science of Healing’, is one of the oldest healing traditions in existence, yet it remains fully alive and intact today. A truly holistic system of medicine that approaches the health of an individual at the levels of the physical body, energy, and mind, it has the fourfold aim of preventing illness, curing illness, extending life, and cultivating happiness.

Join us for a special evening with Dr. Nida Chenaktsang, Co-Founder and Medical Director of Sorig Khang International, as he shares how to lead a healthy life the Tibetan way, and introduces his most recent book The Tibetan Book of Health: Sowa Rigpa, the Science of Healing (Sky Press). Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
