How can we adapt our diet, lifestyle, and behavior to achieve greater balance in our health and spiritual practice? Eliot Tokar, a traditional Tibetan medicine doctor who has been practicing in New York City since 1993, presents the basics of Tibetan medicine, an ancient system of medical science inspired by a dharmic view of life and health. Each week, Tokar will apply key principles from Tibetan medicine as antidotes to Buddhism’s three poisons—ignorance, attachment, and anger, which prevent us from reaching psychological and spiritual harmony.

Dr. Tokar will be available throughout the month to answer your questions in the discussion forum below.
