Join the Tibetan Healing Movement to Cultivate a Healthier Mind and Body

Donating to the THI is a powerful way to heal suffering, create happiness, and promote compassionate care for people, communities and the planet. Since the Tibetan Healing Initiative came into existence in 1999 at the University of Minnesota, one of the main goals has been to help humans flourish. With the promotion of cross-cultural learning, community building, and marrying Tibetan practices with Western-style research, we are achieving this goal. 

Transforming Lives through Tibetan Healing

Flourishing in life requires a healthy mind. The ancient, timely wisdom of Tibetan healing supports self-care practices that can help you to cultivate a healthier mind and body. Tibetan healing teaches you to bring your mental and physical energies into balance thereby reducing suffering and fostering a healthy, happy life.

Dr. Miriam Cameron (Mim) had been visioning and leading the Tibetan Healing Initiative (THI) at the University of Minnesota's Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing for 25 years. Mim, Dr. Tenzin Namdul, and colleagues have published books and articles on Tibetan healing, conducted research, and educated more than 1,500 students, many of whom describe the experience as transformative. 

The Bakken Center’s Tibetan Healing Initiative, previously led by Dr. Miriam “Mim” Cameron, is in transition to the capable hands of Dr. Tenzin Namdul.

"Tenzin is the best person by far to take over for me. Nobody else worked with me all these years, published together, conducted research together, helped with courses [like he has]. There’s nobody else.​​​​" Dr. Mim Cameron, Former Leader of the Bakken Center's Tibetan Healing Initiative
