"The Knowledge of Healing"
Directed by Dranz Reichle
The first full-length film covering Tibetan medicine
and healing practices, The Knowledge of Healing bridges the gap
between Eastern and Western ideologies by detailing the principles and
practice of one of the most highly developed medical systems in the world.
Focusing on the work of Dr. Tenzin Choedrak, personal physician to the 14th
Dalai Lama, the film examines the differences between the holistic approach
of Tibetan healing and the more technological and invasive methods of
Western medicine. An important and informative look at an established and
spiritual alternative to our notions of wellness. Tibetan, Russian, German,
English and Swiss dialect with English subtitles. 93 minutes.
