�Restoration of Body, Mind & Spirit:
A Tibetan Medicine Approach to Your Life in Healthy Balance�
November 14, 2009
From a Tibetan medical perspective a balanced, dynamic union of both masculine and feminine aspects is essential for the health of body, mind and spirit. Each of those elements then reinforces the other to bring health in both the physical and emotional realms. This is important not just for the health and wellbeing of the individual but for the family and the whole of society.
When the Divine Feminine is minimized or excluded things � like the body � fall away from balance with profound negative consequences. Tibetan teachings are acutely aware of this and revere such feminine spiritual influences as the healing Medicine Buddha and Green Tara.
In this Nov. 14 workshop Dr. Gyal provide:
� An introductory overview of Tibetan medical origins, teaching and philosophy with an awareness of the healing image and tradition of Green Tara.
� There will be three sections of learning focused, in order, on the body, mind and spirit to lead students to an understanding of the integrated relation of each to the whole.
� The simple noontime meal will be an experiential lesson on Tibetan nutritional approaches to the dietary balance of masculine (method) and feminine (wisdom) food.
� A brief self assessment report will be used to assist participants to better understand their physical constitution and the foods that would be most helpful to them.
