Course Description

Tibetan Medicine, Ayurveda and Yoga are interrelated ancient, holistic Tibetan and Indian traditions that integrate ethics, spirituality and healing. While studying with experts in India, students examine the claim that the systematic practice of these traditions promotes optimal health. Using critical thinking, students evaluate philosophical knowledge, cultural practices and scientific evidence, and propose research-based programs for integrating these traditions into personal and professional life.

Students fly from MSP to New Delhi, where they can visit the Taj Mahal in Agra. Travel by Jeep to Dharamsala and study with expert Tibetan Medicine doctors at the Men-Tsee-Khang Tibetan Medical Institute. Students will have opportunities for trekking in Himalayan Mountains, Yoga, visiting His Holiness the Dalai Lama's temple and other significant cultural attractions. Students return to Delhi and fly back to MSP.
