Indigenous Wisdom Series: What Is Healing?
Offering cross-cultural perspectives in Health and Well Being.
Sunday, 2-4pm, May 9th: 5 Elements: Through the Indigenous Wisdom of Tibetan Medicine
Dr. Yangdron Kalzang, DAOM, LAc
The essential concept of Tibetan Medicine is to bring or keep everything in balance and to promote health and well-being based on the five elements externally and internally. These five elements are earth, fire, water, air, and space.
When these five elements are balanced, we will be happy and in harmony; but if any of these elements are deficient or disturbed, or in excess, they will manifest in physical and emotional imbalances.
In this class, students will learn the name of the five elements in Tibetan, what their functions are, and the benefits to the mind and body.
We will also learn how to balance them through diet, lifestyle, and herbal medicine externally and internally.
You will learn to balance them in your daily life and routine, as well as, leaning some self-healing and tips for yourself, family, and friends.
