In the summer of 2018, Lotus Garden was delighted to welcome Dr. Rigzin to the Mindrol Lekshey for a series of lectures and discussions entitled ‘Understanding Body, Understanding Mind’. Over the course of this special program, participants had the opportunity to learn more about Tibetan medicine and receive practical instruction on how to develop a better understanding of body in relation to mind. There were also opportunities for personal consultations by appointment.
