Meditation as Medicine of the Mind: Tibetan Mind-Body Practices for Health and Well-being

Jun 09 - Jul 07, 2019 Begins in 2 weeks
with Alejandro Chaoul

Well-being in the Tibetan tradition is a holistic sense of wellness that encompasses body, energy, and mind. During this program, participants will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of Tibetan wellness and experientially practice meditative techniques that utilize the healing power of the breath-energy (qi or lung in Tibetan) as a link and support for a healthy body and more aware state of mind. In addition, some of the current research in this area will be presented and discussed.
