October 27 - 31, 2017
Instill a solid foundation for your study or review of the Tibetan healing system.
The Root Tantra is the basis for the entire healing system of Sowa Rigpa. It is said that if you understand the Root Tantra, you understand all of Tibetan medicine
In this weekend, we will learn the foundational and key aspects which can be applied into one’s personal journey of healing or professional life working with others.
This teaching provides a comprehensive overview of the root upon which all Tibetan Medicine builds, along with tools to apply the system.
Friday evening lecture serves both as a beginning to the weekend or a stand alone lecture with a focus on the inner mandala and teachings of the Medicine Buddha. One can attend either Friday evening and Saturday separately, but Sunday requires attendance in the earlier sessions.
