Wisdom in Healing

Dr. Vinod Verma, Barbara Gerke, Dr. Pema Yangzom & Melitis Kwong

This four-day workshop will introduce participants to three Asian wisdom traditions of healing and maintaining health: Chinese medicine, Tibetan medicine, and Indian Ayurveda. Professionals trained in these ancient systems of health care will each provide a day-long introduction into the tradition’s background and basic principles.

There will be time for discussions on practical applications of some of the methods to modern life and some hands-on instructions on balancing and sustaining health (acupressure massage). The final day will be a day of dialogue and exchange of ideas with opportunities to visit the Tibetan medical clinic in Bir.
