Cultivating Health & Happiness
Fri Feb 1st 6:30-8:30pm

One of the oldest healing sciences on earth, Tibetan Medicine helps us cultivate a happy mind and healthy body in balanced relationship with the world around us. Tibetan Medicine’s healing methods are customized to the unique traits of each individual, making it a truly personalized healthcare system.

In this talk, Jason Whitlow will explore the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine, including its essential understanding of health and disease, its sophisticated diagnostic techniques, and its many practical healing methods including lifestyle and diet guidelines, herbal medicines, massage and external therapies, and healing yoga, breath, and meditation practices.

This is the first in a series of monthly talks at Gathering Thyme being offered in partnership with our friends at Sorig Khang Bay Area, the local Tibetan Medicine center here in San Rafael.

In addition to these talks, Sorig Khang Bay Area is hosting upcoming weekend workshops on healing and prevention through lifestyle and diet, herbal medicines, and external therapies. They also offer opportunities to consult with Tibetan Medicine doctors and receive nourishing Tibetan massage and healing therapy treatments. To learn more, click here to visit their website.
