I've been reading a book about Tibetan healing, where art, spirituality, medicine and intuition are all used to promote the healing process. The training to become a Tibetan doctor begins with 14 years of preliminary education and an additional 5-12 years of rigorous studies, including 2 years dedicated to the artwork alone! Tibetan medicine regards the body as the source of all learning and healing, and diseases as valuable opportunities to gain insight. As the Buddha declared, "Our body is precious. It is a vehicle of awakening."
To mark the end date of my cleanse, I celebrated my own healing with sun, colored pencils, friends in capes, en vogue and this refreshingly delicious cocktail: cheap beer and kombucha. Cheers to summer! xo
