Vitality and calm in the physical body provide a valuable foundation for meditative states. The normal fluctuations in the physical body also offer opportunities for learning mindfulness around lifestyle choices that contribute to or detract from physical vitality and calm. The Tibetan contemplative tradition for over 5000 years has respected the essential role of precise personalized nutritional and herbal practices as a core component of contemplative life. This workshop provides the opportunity to discover practices for nutrition and herbs that match your unique bodily constitution through lecture and demonstration. You’ll receive fundamental tools for making foods and teas that will support your physical well-being, and in turn, your contemplative life.

Instructor: Yangdron Kalzang, Menpa, L.Ac., is a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, as well as a Doctor of Tibetan Medicine (in Tibetan: Menpa).
