**Dr. Jampa Yonten**, holistic medical doctor of Tibetan Medicine, reads and signs his new book, *Compassion as Remedy in Tibetan Medicine: Healing through Limitless* *Compassion.*

This talk will be of interest to, and benefit for, anybody who works in healthcare or wellness as well as any individual who desires to learn about a system of healthcare that expands the notion of “health” to include working with the healing strength of compassion inseparable from wisdom. Tibetan medicine also works with the interactions of body, mind, emotions and spirit, as well as embracing a deep trust in the body’s own healing process.

This is a rare opportunity to meet Dr. Yonten, as well as to learn about how we can benefit from bringing the deep wish to alleviate another’s suffering into our professional as well as personal lives.
