Spiritual Advice From a Tibetan Medical Perspective

Broadcast on August 23, 2023
With Nashalla G. Nyinda, Menpa TMD, MA Acu
Hosted by Selima Harleston Lust

For thousands of years, Tibetan medicine has synthesized a unique systematic system, balancing cause and effect, hot and cold, and realities of both the illusionary and awakened self. Buddhist healing philosophy renders a distinct explanation for pathophysiology. In this session, Nashalla G. Nyinda, Menpa TMD, MA Acu will discuss the inseparability of nature to our intrinsic selves, and how to tailor treatments to any subsequent expressions of health or disease.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • Your inner ecology, health, and mental wellness as they relate to the to the natural world, surrendering linear thinking of symptoms as the primary focus 
  • How to strengthen intuition and sensory perceptions, allowing you to comprehend what plants and the environment offer, and how to apply antidotes with precision
  • Cleaning inner channels, awakening pure vision of the healing Medicine Buddha and wisdom Dakini's within, begins by knowing how causes of spiritual and physical illness are linked
The views expressed are specific to the author/speaker and may vary from the perspectives of The Shift Network's participants, staff, or other speakers.
