Dr Kelsang Dhonden consulting from 24 - 28 February

Following the very sad news last September of Dr Dorjee's unexpected passing-away, we are delighted to be able to welcome a new Tibetan Doctor, Dr Kelsang Dhonden, to the United Kingdom this spring. Dr Dhonden will be giving consultations in London and Birmingham between Wednesday 24 February, and Sunday 28. February.

His schedule will be:

  • Wednesday 24 February - London
  • Thursday 25 February - London
  • Friday 26 February - London
  • Saturday 27 February - Birmingham
  • Sunday 28 February - London

 

Medical consultations last approximately 15 minutes and cost £30 (£18 for Tibet Foundation members) plus the cost of any medicine prescribed.

Dr Kelsang Dhonden has been highly recommended to us by his former teachers, Dr Tenpa and Dr Tamdin (both of whom were at one time the Foundation's visiting doctor).

Dr Dhonden studied at Ganden Choeling Monastery in Yumdrok, and Tibet University, Lhasa, before studying English at TCV Suja, and Tibetan Medicine at Men Tsee Khang, Dharmasala (the Tibetan Medical and Astrological Institute). On completion of his medical study, he has worked variously in Tibetan clinics around India, and the Research Department of Men Tsee Khang. He has written several Tibetan books on Tibetan Medicine, and was elected as a member of the Central Council of Tibetan Medicine in 2012, serving as a member of the organising committee of the Second International Tibetan Medical Conference in Dharamsala. Today he is the Junior Doctor in the renowned Dr Yeshi Dhonden's Clinic in Dharamsala, and has studied pharmacology, practical pulse-reading and urine analysis, and special practical and diagnostic lines for cancer and other diseases.

We look forward to welcoming Dr Dhonden on his first visit to the UK and hope that he will be able to make biannual visits in future. To make a booking to see the Dr, please contact the Foundation Office on 020 7930 6001 during office hours.
