Option 1 : Tibetan  Medecine and Psychotherapy 


Buddhism Tantra, cosmology, materia medica and symbolism are deeply related
to Tibetan Medicine. There is no distinction between mental and physical disorders,
as in Tibetan Medicine philosophy all such phenomena are manifested at a single level,
that being through the psychic centers and channels (ie: jinas and nadis). Although the
Tibetan medicine system is above all a functional and physiopathological approach, 
based upon the concepts of humors and five energies, and treatments grounded 
upon the efficacy of Himalayan herbal remedies, the process of a professional
introduction to-, and later training in-, Integrated Tibetan Medicine Psychology 
and Psychotherapy has now become more feasible for Westerners, if
organized in a rather careful and stepwise manner .

In principles, Tibetan Medicine Training could be undertaken  in three stages :

- stage 1- introduction teachings and seminarsto the elementary principles of both
Tibetan Dharma philosophy, psychology and medicine, including couses in Tibetan 
and/or Nepalese languages being part of the pre-requisite for the later stages.

-stage 2- personalized instructions in situ with a certified Tibetan Amchi (MD) with
supervision of a selected Tibetan Lama or Rimpoche. This includes insights upon 
diagnosis, therapy, spiritual healing resources, herbal remedies and materia medica, 
as well as the link to a personally chosen Tibetan Lineage in order to gather 
spiritual practices and experientials, under appropriate guidance.

- stage  3- clinical practices under supervision, whether based in Kathmandu (ie: 
with Amchi Kunzang, Amchi Kunsang Dorje and Amchi Tashi Paldaon at Kunphen, 
and/or at the Kailash Dharamsala Medical Branch in Chabihi Boddhanath, and/or 
with Amchi Jampa Medical Clinic, or the new Shechen Clinic) and/or with the official
medical training resources in Dharamsala in India, or possible links with Trogawa 
Rimpoche or ITTM Health Centers in Sikkim..

Regarding Tibetan Psychology and Psychotherapy Training, per se, specific resources 
linked to established and reputed Therapy Teachers within the Tibetan Vajrayana 
have been also founded and are integrated in our curriculum proposal..

Keltic Trilogy /CAIRN (Nepal) Field-studies Tours & Seminars in Tibetan Philosophy, Himalayan Healing and Divination, Herbal Medicine,  Psychology and Psychotherapy, 
include teachings and experientials based upon the Termas tradition. It is directly
linked with specialized social/health services based in Kathmandu valley.

Our Training programmes are organized by CAIRN (Nepal) in close collaboration 
within ISI-CNV Institute Certified Training (ISI-CNV Nice /France) framework.
