About the Course

Designed for the person who does not wish to practice Sowa Rigpa professionally, but would like to learn the fundamentals of Tibetan healing in order to better take care of oneself, improve quality of life, and learn how to promote health and rejuvenation at home and in one’s family and communities. 

The course follows the main structure of the Root Tantra (tsa gyu), the first of the Four Tantras (gyu zhi), the principle medical texts of Sowa Rigpa, with supplementary information from the (2nd) Explanatory Tantra (shé gyu) and (4th) Final Tantra (chi mé gyu) and special emphasis on safe and practical applications at home.
