Tibetan medicine, also known as Sowa Rigpa, is a precious heritage of Tibet. It is a holistic system of treatment and prevention for maintaining equilibrium of body, energy and mind. It is very beneficial even for our European society that is why we strive for its propagation in Czech Republic.
We have organized two intensive workshops about Tibetan medicine in the past. For both of these course we invited an experienced Tibetan healer MUDr. Darima Balzhinimaeva, a student of the renowned Emchi Lama Dr. Dugarov from the Republic of Buryatia.
We also organize courses with MUDr. Anastazja Holečko, a healer and a lecturer of Tibetan medicine and chairwoman in the Academy of Traditional Tibetan Medicine.
We also cooperate with Roman Nenadl from Czech company specializing to Tibetan Medicine products - Norbu tibetská medicína, s.r.o.
Since 2019 we have organized two weekend workshops of Tibetan yoga Lu Jong with French teacher Julie Breukel Michel at our retreat center in Všenory. Of these practitioners, 6 opted for almost a year of intensive Lu Jong teacher training.
We hold the issue of ecology and protection of our environment very dear to our heart. In the past we have participated in afforestation and ice stupa construction projects. We are currently preparing a programme about ecology for 2020 – follow us and keep in touch.

The natural world is our home. It is not necessarily sacred or holy. It is simply where we live. It is therefore in our interest to look after it. This is common sense.
