“My wish is that Tibetan Medicine would spread like the infinite expanse of the sky in order to benefit all sentient beings.”
— Yuthok Yonten Gonpo, Father of Tibetan Medicine (12th Century C.E.)
Sorig Khang New York (SKNY) organizes classes in Traditional Tibetan Medicine (TTM), aka Sowa Rigpa (བོད་ཀྱི་གསོ་བ་རིག་པ་) and the Yuthok Nyingthig. Sowa ("healing" or "nurturing") Rigpa ("science" or "awareness") is commonly abbreviated to Sorig, and Sorig Khang ( གསོ་རིག་ཁང་) loosely translates as “medicine house”, a place where healing work is practiced and shared. SKNY courses range from daylong teachings for laypeople to learn self- and family care, to multi-year certification trainings for clinicians--as well as dharma teachings and meditation practice and retreats. SKNY presents the curricula and teachings of Sorig Khang International founded by Dr Nida Chenagtsang. Learn more here.
