Sowa Rigpa: Foundations of the
Healing Science of Tibetan Medicine
with Dr. Eric Rosenbush | September 1st - 30th, 2021 | 30-Hour Live Online Training
Learn the foundations of Sowa Rigpa, the healing science of Tibet and the Himalayas. This course will present essential principles of health, disease, and a spectrum of therapeutic techniques. Following the tradition of the Root Tantra, the introductory text studied by all Tibetan doctors for centuries, essential principles of the medical system will be introduced using the visual learning system of metaphorical tree paintings. This system is simple yet profound, and helps to establish a context where we can understand the dynamics of how to maintain balance in body and mind, and how to rectify imbalances leading to disease.
All are welcome, from beginners to experienced therapists of all traditions. While this course is the first step on the journey to become a Sowa Rigpa practitioner, it is useful for anyone wishing to learn how to understand and maintain health in their own bodies. It is like a user manual for being embodied, according to the wisdom of Tibetan medicine.
If you cannot attend live sessions, lifetime access to course re-plays are provided.
