Tibet House, 22 West 15th Street, New York, NY 10011

This is a free event. Donations are warmly invited to support the Humla Medical Service Trip

We are all gifted with the primordial wisdom of healing. In the Tibetan Bon tradition, practices to help us connect with this innate potential of healing have been done for thousands of years. According to the Bon teachings, healing encompasses the physical, emotional and mental dimensions. Tempa Lama will explain how healing practice is used in the Bon tradition to heal our mind, balance and strengthen our energy, and help us reconnect with our inherent potential of healing others and ourselves.


Tempa Lama will also introduce the Humla Medical Service Trip that he will guide this fall to Humla, Nepal, a remote Himalayan region of incredible natural beauty and rich cultural diversity. The trip will bring acupuncturists, naturopaths, medical doctors, and nurses to Humla’s remote villages to offer no cost, high quality health care to people who otherwise do not have access to medical care. The trip is now open for applications from medical professionals and lay people who want to share their compassion and wisdom with the people of Humla.

The talk is offered free of charge, donations are gratefully accepted to benefit the Humla Medical Service Trip. Prints of Tempa Lama’s Thangka paintings and his recent book Journey into Buddhahood will be for sale also with proceeds supporting the Humla Medical Service Trip.
