    On Friday, September 5, we’re happy to be bringing in a new season of the Himalayan Heritage group where we will honor the closing the Rubin Museum’s flagship show, Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine.

    This month, we will be joined by our friends Dr. Guna Natha and Dr. Dawa Ridak, who will lead the group in a Tibetan meditation practice, recitation, and visualization of Medicine Buddha.

    We will also be welcoming  Saranne Rothberg,  the CEO of Comedy Cures Foundation,  and Dr. Marsha Woolf, founder and director of  Alternative Resources Unlimited, Menla Tibetan Medical Institute (MTMI), and Menla Tibetan Medical Research Initiative. Medicine She has practiced Natural and Preventative Medicine for 39 years, specializing in Chinese since 1975, and Tibetan Medicine since 1981, with a focus on treating cancer, the immune system, and women’s disorders. They will be sharing their stories of healing during our reception in the education center.
