100 years of Tibetan Medicine in Poland

Medicine for our nature: internal and external

A Congress for Adults, Children and all together

We feel honored to invite you to the 8th International Congress on Sowa Rigpa- Traditional Tibetan Medicine which will be held from April 24 to 25, 2020 in Poznan/Poland (including a comprehensive additional program before and after the Congress days) and we are looking forward to welcome you to this timeless personal encounter of practitioners, scholars, cooperation partners and interested people in the field of Sowa Rigpa and other disciplines.

Let’s come together in the polish “metropolis” of Poznan with people from all over the world to celebrate “100 years of Tibetan Medicine in Poland” together with our motto “Unity in Diversity”, working for the same goal, beyond borders and national or individual interests.

The inspiring motto  intends to broaden our scientific perspectives and to present Sowa Rigpa as a “Science of traditional modern medicine”.

Families with children are very welcome. We are very happy to meet the next generation of Sorig practitioners from all over the world. For the first time there will be a separate Congress program for children with a separate registration. Sorig Kids will be active Congress participants and will have their own separate program to get in touch with the science of health and happiness as soon as possible. At the moment an international group of experts -in cooperation with Avishan Saberian who developed Sorig Kids under the guidance of Dr. Nida Chenagtsang as a program of study (and fun) for children and families, integrating a variety of techniques from both the Tibetan medical and spiritual traditions- is creating a transcultural concept for the Congress in Poznan.

Poznan, among the oldest and largest cities in Poland with a high quality of living, surrounded by nature as the city lies in the outskirts of beautiful lakelands,   is an important academic site with 130 000 students, a city with a history of openness and experience in welcoming and hosting people from around the globe for exchange on an academic, economic or on the level of arts and culture.

During the Congress Poznan will be the metropolis of Sowa Rigpa and a connecting bridge on the pathways of Sowa Rigpa from the Tibetan high plateau to eastern Europe and with this bridge-building gathering we would like to strengthen our interconnection with a concrete focus on scientific cooperation and interdisciplinary on the highest possible level to face future challenges: for the benefit of all sentient beings and our environment: let´s go beyond “natural medicine” and talk about medicine for our nature: internal and external.

Let ́s come together in the wonderful traditional and modern city of Poznan.

With most cordial greetings on behalf of the International Organizing Committee,

Dr. Nida Chenagtsang

Dr. Marian Majchrzycki

Dr. Anastazja Holecko
