Tibetan Mantra Healing level 1 Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd July 10am - 10pm Saturday, 10am - 5pm Sunday Cost is $250 Mantra healing is the ancient tradition of using specific mantras for healing.

The mantras are simple to use, profoundly effective, and are immediately accessible to... Continue reading

What a great night we had welcoming in the Year of The Wood Sheep! The Wild Yak put on a fantastic night, the food was amazing, and so generous (and the Chang - Tibetan Barley beer - was so strong!). Tenzing Yeshi sang for us so beautifully, we were very lucky. All in all it was exactly the start to the new year I was hoping for; fun, positive and celebratory. We will be doing it again next year for sure! My heartfelt thanks to Tobchen, Tenzin and Pempa for their amazing food and fabulous hospitality. I hope that those... Continue reading

My Tibetan medicine teacher, Dr Nida Chenagtsang, gave a great on line teaching last week on Dreams and Sleep in Tibetan medicine. It was good to be reminded of how important quality sleep is to our on-going health, well-being and state of mind. As always the approach for this in Tibetan medicine is to first look at the person's typology. The TTM practitioner identifies each patient as one of three main body types (of course these lines are blurred, we all have elements of each type, but for the most part tend to one type as dominant.) And as always,... Continue reading

Dear friends, I invite you to join me for a special celebration on Wednesday 18th of February as we welcome in and celebrate the Tibetan New Year! I have been working with my friends (and neighbours!) at the Wild Yak to create an evening that celebrates Tibetan culture, food, and ok, maybe just a little bit about Tibetan medicine ... The banquet menu is amazing and many of the dishes are being prepared just for this night, you won't find them on the usual menu. And there are going to be a few Losar surprises... Only 50 places so don't... Continue reading
