INTRODUCTION AND CONCLUSION
Link to the latest edition of "The Sorig News" from Jacqueline Yu (ATTM Singapore) with more information to the Congress and an outlook on upcoming events:
A wonderful, lasting and profound experience: "Sharing Knowledge" with participants from 34 different countries.
Thanks to the great organizing work of Sorig Khang International Nepal (SKIN) in close cooperation with the International Congress Team of the IATTM, the exceptional lectures, presentations & workshops from highly experienced TTM practitioners and scholars from around the world, the variety of informative material on Sowa Rigpa at the stands and due to the openness of the participants for the exchange and sharing of knowledge, the Congress days in the perfect surrounding of Shechen Monastery (with thanks to Shechen Monastery for the warm welcome and to the team of Shechen Guesthouse for the perfect hospitality and catering) have been characterized by a sustainable, comprehensive and lively discourse full of joy.
The 3rd International Congress on Sowa Rigpa- Traditional Tibetan Medicine from December 28-30 in Shechen Monastery (Kathmandu/Nepal) was an amazing gathering: after the precious opening lectures of the Congress President Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, the local Chairman Dr. Sherab Tenzin, the Director of Men Tsee Khang/Dharamsala Mr. Tashi Tsering Phuri, the Director of Chagpori/Darjeeling Dr. Teinlay Trogawa and the IATTM Acting Director Dr. Tam Nguyen, more than 250 participants from 34 different countries created the TTMIC together with the local organizing team of Sorig Khang International Nepal as joyful days of interdisciplinarity, cooperation and friendship with more than 30 comprehensive presentations, moderated panel discussions and workshops. Many thanks to all participants for these wonderful days of exchange in the field of Sowa Rigpa. Thanks for the enthusiasm and the joy of sharing.
The world of Sowa Rigpa is rich, creative, connected and well-prepared for the great challenge of a growing international interest and the bridging of the gap between time-tested wisdom and modern scientific perspectives and the opinion leaders in the field of Tibetan Medicine are full of openness and clarity for a further exchange and cooperation: side by side, working for the same goal from different perspectives!: to preserve and develop Traditional Tibetan Medicine for the benefit of all sentient beings.
The IATTM-meetings (expertly guided and sensitively structured by Dr. Tam Nguyen/IATTM Acting Director) offered a great opportunity to experience the IATTM as a networked & mutually enriching international organization with immense potential and clarity for the next steps.
It gives immense pleasure to announce that the 4th International Congress will be held under the motto "Long Life & Good Health: The 2 Flowers" from April 1-3 2016 in Tallinn/Estonia.
Be a part of it as you are already!
A cordial invitation to all.
Full of gratitude for all the wonderful encounters with TTM friends from all over the world and with all my best wishes, here (below) the Congress Documentation.
Cordial greetings to all from the Congress Office in Innsbruck/Austria,
Dr. Jens Tönnemann
IATTM Congress Coordinator
The Motto of the 3rd Congress was „Sharing Knowledge“.
In between the lectures and workshops, Sowa Rigpa experts from various countries were invited to participate in moderated panel discussions. It was the idea to create an interactive process of „Sharing Knowledge“ with the possibility for metareflections. Lectures and presentations by TTM experts from various countries allowed an inspiring overview and reflected an impression of the wide methodological and contentual spectrum of TTM in this field. Enhanced by practical workshops, presentations and information stands, a varied framework program and networking meetings, the Congress had invited to an exchange of information and experience and a lively discourse between experts and interested people under the Motto „Sharing Knowledge“.
According to the great feedback from the participants, the concrete results and the considerations for steps of implementation, this exchange has taken place in an inspiring and enriching way.
