Root of Treatment in Tibetan Medicine (FTTM 1.4)
TTM Theory Part 4 of 4
In-person or Online
Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM) is one of the oldest healing traditions in existence, yet it remains fully alive in the modern world. It offers a vast medical knowledge that is accessible to everyone, and supports the cultivation of a happy mind along with a healthy body.
In this workshop, we will study the fundamental principles of TTM treatment presented in the Root Tantra. We will learn how TTM therapies encourage the maintenance of health while also offering techniques to relieve symptoms and to cure the root of disease. We will explore TTM’s many approaches to treatment, including diet and lifestyle regimens, natural and herbal medicines, and external therapies, each according to the three nyepa. We will also consider how TTM treatment options compare and contrast with those offered by modern medicine.
This workshop establishes the theoretical basis of the practical treatment techniques taught in FTTM levels 3–5.
This workshop is part of the two-year Foundations of TTM program in Tibetan Medicine & Therapeutics. Students are welcome to attend select workshops, or the entire program.
