Science of Healing
Sowa Rigpa, the Healing Science of Tibet, is a precious treasure of human culture, and one of the great medical systems of Asia.
Ancient indigenous medical practices from Tibet were syncretized with the medical systems of India, China, and Greece and codified in the 12th century by the great master Yuthok Yonten Gonpo. Since then, Sowa Rigpa has been passed down and evolved in an unbroken lineage until today.

Learning is interactive, with online multimedia teachings incorporating the study of medical thangka paintings, meditative practice, and practical instruction.
