Traditional Tibetan Medicine Clinic 25th March (Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm)

Traditional Tibetan Medicine offers a truly holistic approach to your health and wellbeing. The Tibetan medical system focuses on treating the root cause of the problem as opposed to alleviating the discomfort caused by the symptoms.
It can be used alone or in conjunction with Western medicine.
It recognises how dietary, psychological, lifestyle and environmental factors cause imbalance in the body and mind.

Our medicines are sourced from rare plants and herbs grown on the Tibetan Plateau.
The medicines are made according to an age-old tradition, which follows strict methods, and uses sophisticated processing techniques.

lobsang_arranThe practitioner, Lobsang Dhonden Soktsang, will see you in strictest confidence. Although his English is still improving, if you speak slowly and clearly, he will be able to understand what is necessary for your consultation. If you have any doubts about this, in each of his clinics there is an assistant for the clinic of the day.

We have a sliding scale of rates for consultation, depending on the financial circumstances of the patient, with concessionary and medical card rates.

The Six Paramitas - Ancient Wisdom for Modern Living, with Clive Holmes 8th April - 9th April 2017 (Time: 11:00 am - 4:00 pm)

The Six Paramitas:-Ancient Wisdom For Modern Living

Clive will share teachings about the six paramitas, how to bring mindfulness into a social and ethical framework. These instructions are about the way of life for a meditator. We do not need to “reinvent the wheel.” These teachings have benefited millions of people over hundreds of years although they may be unfamiliar to a western audience. The first five paramitas are under the broad heading of compassion:

1.      Generosity/ gratitude,

2.      Moral ethics (discipline or coolness),

3.      Acceptance,  Forbearance and patience,

4.      Diligence and

5.      Mental stability.

Whilst the sixth is transcendental wisdom.

If we approach these ancient teachings with humility and an open mind they can bring great benefit. They are especially useful to those practising mindfulness and compassion.

These teachings are open and suitable for all. Book your place on or call 01 4537427

Saturday 8th April 11am – 4:00pm

Sunday 9th April 11am – 4:00pm
