A workshop on Self-Transformation Through the Medecine Buddha Mandala will be offered June 25-26, taught by Dr. Lobsang Rapgay.

This workshop is designed to help the participant design his or her own mandala of healing using the Tibetan medicine Buddha mandala as a prototype. The mandala is a representation of the structures and levels through which one has to pass in order to grow and develop. It represents the archetypes of your potential for transformation. By knowing the type of person you are at a physical, environmental, emotional, psychological, and spiritual level, you are able to design your own path or model.

Participants are given the Tibetan personality test which consists of physical evaluation using the pulse, urine and body examination as well as psychological evaluation in the form of a questionnaire designed as an aid to self-understanding. Through these evaluations participants measure the effect of nutrition, behavior, meditation, psychology, and spirituality on their own health needs.

This is a practical workshop and all participants take part in the evaluations, meditation, and group discussions. It is appropriate for individuals working on their own health as well as for professionals interested in Tibetan medicine.
