      Unified Mind and Body

      The Practice of Psychology in Tibetan Medicine

      A free public lecture presented by Aku Nyima, the foremost living doctor of Tibetan Medicine

       

                         Text Box: Friday, October 16th  4- 6 PM 
Amherst College, Paino Lecture Hall, Earth Science Building
In Tibetan Medicine the mind and body are seen as inseparable from one another. Therefore emotional stress can lead to physical problems and mistreatment of the body can lead to mental disease. The underlying cause of mental illness is considered the imbalance of the 5 elements of the body, due to improper diet, lifestyle, season and influences of unseen forces.  A Tibetan Doctor brings the five elements back into balance with diet and lifestyle changes as well as herbal and external treatments.
This lecture will be delivered by Aku Nyima, Founder and Director of the Qinghai Tibetan Medical Hospital, the largest hospital in Amdo, Tibet. He is also Professor of Qinghai Tibetan Medical School, Vice President of the Tso Ngon Tibetan Medical Group and the author of eight books on Tibetan Medicine.  Aku Nyima has become the most well known doctor throughout Tibet for his limitless compassion towards his patients and his boundless knowledge of Tibetan Medicine. This one-time visit to America is a rare opportunity to meet this great living master.
      Sponsored by  the Asian Languages and Civilizations Department, the Hamilton Fund, the Religion Department at Amherst College, and the Shang Shung Institute.
