Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche: Breath as Medicine
Asia Society hosts a talk by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche on the application of ancient Tibetan mind-body practices to our modern world.
Over the last few decades, there has been a growing interest in mind-body practices and their therapeutic uses. Tibetan spiritual traditions utilize mind-body practices as a way to heal one’s body, energy, and mind. One of the most potent mind-body medicines is the use of breath, sometimes known as prana, qi, or rlung in Tibetan. In fact, many times these practices are called mind-breath-body practices.
In this talk, Tibetan master Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will share his knowledge of these ancient practices, as well as how to apply them in our modern Western setting. Tenzin Wangyal will participate in related events with The Jung Center on February 6-7, 2016.
