Open to All


Tibetan medicine herbs consists of philosophy, science, and healing practices that can help create and maintain a healthy mind and body.  The Tibetan name for this holistic healing system is Sowa Rigpa, which means the science of healing. 

Tibetan medicine herbs has roots in the ancient, indigenous culture of Tibet. In the 8th century, the first ever international conference about Tibetan medicine herbs was held at Samye Monastery in Tibet. Physicians from India, China, Persia, and other areas attended. The first Tibetan medical college was established in Lhasa, Tibet, in 1696. In the early 1900s, the two major medical schools in Lhasa were the Chagpori Medical College and the Men-Tsee-Khang (Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute).  In 1961, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama re-established the Men-Tsee-Khang in Dharamsala, India.  This medical college educates post-high-school students during a seven-year intensive program.

Join us for an introductory talk on Tibetan Medicine Herbs.  Following the class, Dr. T-Dorjee will be available for private 15 minute consultations upon request.
