„Sowa Rigpa – The Science of health and happiness“

“To improve our work I sincerely request you to better cooperate and communicate. 
Mutual trust and respect is so important for our Family 
I wish for everyone to express their best
 talents to help the Family to grow strongers..
Let’s discuss this at the congress!”

“We are one family”

 (Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, Congress President/Med. Director SKI)

Welcome to Pisa!

Under the inspiring motto “Vivere Sowa Rigpa” the International Congress Team of SKI warmly welcomes all to attend and invites to a lively and inspiring process of sharing knowledge.
 For the 6th 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

Let´s continue this inspiring annual Congress journey of unity in spirit & diversity in the wonderful city of Pisa and in the beauty of the Tuscan countryside (additional program will be in the pictoresque little Tibet of Tuscany, Pomaia) : Vivere Sowa Rigpa.

Sowa Rigpa – The Science of Health and Happiness: „Sowa Rigpa was originated in the high plateau of Tibet thousands of years ago, later it was developed in the neighbouring countries: in northern India, Ladakh and Nepal it is known as Amchi Medicine, in Bhutan it is known as indigenous or the Buddhist Medicine, in Mongolia it is known as Traditional Mongolian Medicine and in Tibet it is known as Traditional Tibetan Medicine. Sowa Rigpa is a science of healing and it transcends nationalism, political issues or culturalism. Therefore I would like to call Sowa Rigpa the Science of Health and Happiness.“ (Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, public talk, 10th November, 2018)

From Italy to Amdo, Summer 2017

Sowa Rigpa with its comprehensive time-tested knowledge meets an rapidly increasing global interest in treatment options and accessible information which are in accordance not only with the original tibetan teachings but also with international scientific standards.

The personal encounter at the Congress allows a rare opportunity for a profound further cooperation on the highest possible level. 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.

The perfect place for the 6th Congress of Sowa Rigpa: Bella Italia!
                             Italy, the beloved „base camp“ of Dr. Nida Chenagtsang (Congress President, Medical Director of SKI) and his family, with it´s powerful local SKI team and the inspiring and active SKI community there, seems to be the perfect location

Vivere Sowa Rigpa and welcome to Italy 2018!


After 5 years of focusing more on the „outer world“ and the cooperation of SKI with all different institutions and organisations in the field of Sowa Rigpa, the next Congress will invite to the „inner world“ of the SKI family.

All speakers will be highly qualified scholars and SKI family members, from Italy and from all over the world, directly chosen for certain topics by our Medical Director Dr. Nida Chenagtsang.


The 2 outstanding directors: Dr. Tam & Dr. Nida

The Congress will go back to its roots and connect deeper with the amazing new Sorig Khang International Foundation:
