Meeting SKI members, Sowa Rigpa practitioners and scholars from all over the world,
exchange on the highest possible level, joint meditation, face to face contact and further cooperation,
joint treatments during Free Medical Camps, case reports and sharing knowledge, fun …
Under the inspiring motto “Sowa Rigpa in Action” the International Congress Team of SKI warmly welcomes all to attend and invites to a program beyond theory and a lively process of sharing knowledge. For the 5th time people from more than 40 different countries will come together with joy and openness to celebrate the rich and creative world of Sowa Rigpa.
Sowa Rigpa with its comprehensive time-tested knowledge meets an increasing global interest in treatment options and accessible information which are in accordance not only with the original teachings but also with international scientific standards.
“Working separately, we are disjointed. Working together, there is no limit to what we can accomplish.“
– Dr. Nida Chenagtsang
The personal encounter at the Congress is a gift and an opportunity for a profound further cooperation. The root concept of the Congress follows the main vision of Tibetan Medicine: to work for the benefit of all sentient beings (inspired by the words of younger Yuthok Yonten Gonpo), beyond national or individual interests.
“Wherever possible, we must work on a common ground. Where there are differences, we need to respect the views, and not necessarily adopt the views and lose sight of one’s primary objectives.”
– Mr. Tashi Tsering Phuri, Director of Men- Tsee- Khang Dharamsala/India.
During the Congress days we would like to focus on inspiring practical aspects in the field of Sowa Rigpa: highly experienced speakers will present „case reports“ of their work and together with experts and scholars from around the world and – alltogether in close cooperation – we are going to establish international guidelines for future Sorig case reports and case studies. Parallel to the presentations we invite to practical workshops on external therapies (Stick Therapy, Bloodletting, Acupuncture, 5 Nectar Bath Therapy). In between there will be an ongoing process of joint meditation and participants will visit the Sorig College & clinics nearby for open treatment sequences, joint consultations and all interested practitioners are going to work together in Free medical camps in different nepalese areas after the Congress.
In accordance with the valuable experiences that have been made during the 4th International Congress on Sowa Rigpa in Tallinn/Estonia with participants from 40 different countries, the 5th Congress in Kathmadu allows a comprehensive and inspiring insight in the actual practice of Sowa Rigpa in Nepal and around the globe.
