“Tibetan Medicine: Create a Healthy Mind and Body”
Faculty, Dr. Miriam E. Cameron and Dr. Tenzin Namdul
7-8:30 p.m., Thursday, January 28, 2021
The Meditation Center, Minneapolis, via Zoom
All of us want to be happy and avoid suffering. Yet, too often we make choices that sabotage us. Tibetan medicine, Tibet’s ancient science of healing, teaches
that the purpose of life is to be happy, and that after our basic needs are met,chappiness results primarily from our own thinking.
Tibetan medicine describes the intricate relationship between mind and body. Dr. Cameron and Dr. Namdul will explain how to use Tibetan medicine for self-
care as a complement to Yoga and modern medicine. Tibetan medicine and Yoga empower us to make mindful, informed choices that create health and
happiness for ourselves, others, and our planet.
