Many students have been requesting advanced courses for some time now. We thank them for their patience!
Through the experience gained from conducting several online courses, we have learnt and improved systems for developing content and online delivery. It is then with the greatest of pleasure, that we announce the start of online advanced courses for students who have already successfully completed our 3-year Tibetan Medicine course or the 4-year course of the New Yuthok Institute of Milan.


An advanced course will be presented in one or more modules that include/s:
- A new learning environment:
