Abitility to participate
In order to participate in the course and learn this medical tsalung practice, high spiritual commitments or years of Buddhist practice are not required. By learning and practicing, the participant follows a medical lineage, which means there is no specific required affiliation to a certain Buddhist school or lineage. However, to effectively integrate these teachings, a regular practice of a short Medicine Buddha sadhana, Tibetan yoga and meditation, as well as commitments of respect towards the practices and texts involved are required. Above all, one should cultivate bodhicitta, a good heart. Tsalung healing therapy is based on Tibetan tantra, so it is highly recommended that students are Buddhist practitioners.
Participants take part in TME activities fully responsible of their behavior and must notify TME-Tibetan Medicine Education center of any relevant physical and/or psychological impairments before the seminar/course/workshop/retreat. If necessary, participants must consult a physician or psychotherapist. TME-Tibetan Medicine Education center reserves the right to exclude participants who do not fulfill the physical and/or psychological requirements from participating in a seminar/course/workshop/retreat.
In order to maintain an appropriate learning environment, students having an inappropriate, disruptive, or offensive behavior may be excluded from courses or workshops.
