How much does it cost? I have often wondered what the benefits of a dual qualification in western and tibetan medicine would be.

Namdrol,
Is the Shang Shung Institute's online Tibetan Medicine school up and running yet? It seems that they said they'd have info by September of last year, but I still don't see anything. I'm planning on applying for the full 4-year program. Do you have any info or advice?

I spoke with Gen Phuntsog Wangmo the other day and there were plans to begin a new online course this Fall (2012).

You can also contact the Shang Shung secretary (secretary at shangshung.org) or call for more information.

As this topic has turned into a general discussion it has been moved from the Tibetan Medicine forum.

Tibetan medicine institute is very interesting but its more realistic to contribute undertstanding to the -Western Approach-

~ especially in the field of psychiatry.

Everyday problems teach us to have a realistic attitude.
They teach us that life is what life is; flawed.
Yet with tremendous potential for joy and fulfillment.
~Lama Surya Das~

If your path teaches you to act and exert yourself correctly and leads to spiritual realizations such as love, compassion and wisdom then obviously it's worthwhile.
~Lama Thubten Yeshe~

One whose mind is freed does not argue with anyone, he does not dispute with anyone. He makes use of the conventional terms of the world without clinging to them

[quoteWhy?
What good does a psychiatrist do for a person in most cases?
They for the most part just prescribe drugs, as is common in the west for most anything, instead of helping to find the true answer to the problem.
I have read that in the Eastern cultures psychiatry is basically non-existent.
I believe Lama Yeshe said that for one to calm/subdue mental issues, one needs to find the cause in themselves. Through meditation, first calming the mind, then through more meditation finding the truth of their own mind.

Not drugging a person into the "form" society deems "proper".


Kindest wishes, Dave][/quote]

You need to read more about western psychiatry, most mental illness is caused by a pathological mechanism - which needs drug treatment. Of course things like meditation may help someone keep well by reducing stress triggers but if a patient was diabetic there would be no question about giving drug treatment yet with mental illness people treat it differently why?
The monoamine theory of depression and dopamine over-activity in schizophrenia is a physical brain disorder, not treating with sensible medications based on this pathology is stupid. The reason psychiatry doesn't exist in the east is because it is taboo, not because there is no mental illness.

I respect your reply on this. Alsp I never said there wasn't mental illness in the east.
But many "disorders" are over medicated in western scociety.
Yes there are some things that need to be medicated there is no doubt in that.
Many problems both physical and mental can be overcome without pharmicuticals.

Speaking of which - why do most psychiatric hospitals have to restrict freedom of movement around the facility? . . :shrug:
