HEAL: Body Mind Spirit
Be Well From the Inside Out
Tibet is home to one of the world’s oldest healing traditions, based on the principles of karma and the interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit. Adherents believe that wellness cannot exist if any of these three elements are out of balance.
HEAL: Body Mind Spirit allows you to explore holistic Tibetan practices that can help eliminate negative karma and create positive energy for inner and outer wellbeing. Each month features different activities including holistic healing therapies, meaningful community work to purify the body, and basic Buddhist philosophy to develop a positive mind and spirit.
