Tibet - Dharamsala
HEALING TOUCH TAUGHT TO TIBETIAN MEDICAL STUDENTS
Healing Touch at Tibetan College
In the northeast corner of India, tucked away at the foot of the Himalaya mountains, live many of the Tibetans who have escaped from their native country after the Chinese invaded in 1949. Thousands of men, women and children still pour into India seeking safe refuge after enduring the treacherous journey over the mountains. The health care needs of these courageous, gentle people are tended to in most part by Tibetan doctors who practice traditional Tibetan Medicine. Healing Touch is very compatible with the Tibetan Medical practices as it employs energy principles and understands the flow through and chakras of the body.
In 2005 and again this year in 2006, Healing Touch Instructors Mary Frost and Teleka Fulton journeyed to the town of Dharamsala, home of His Holiness, The XIV Dalai Lama, to teach Levels 1 and 2. Classes have been taught at Men-Tsee-Khang College to Tibetan Medical Students, Tibetan Medical Doctors and other individuals desiring the information. Instructors have also been able to treat Tibetan Buddhist monks and nuns who endured imprisonment in Tibet before escaping to India.
