Self-care skills have always been a fundamental component of contemplative practice traditions. This practical workshop will impart self-care skills from Tibetan Medicine that help prepare the mind and body for meditation. Techniques presented include Hor-mey, or warm oil therapy, which promotes calmness, relaxation, and rejuvenation. Skills for recognizing imbalances and restoring balance in your body and mind also will be presented. Tibetan Medicine, which has been practiced for more than 4,000 years, is called "Sowa Rigpa" in Tibetan. "Sowa" means to heal that which is imbalanced and "rigpa" means the knowledge and science of a particular subject. Sowa Rigpa is regarded as one of the five most important and essential sciences in Tibetan traditional education.
