The book Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, was originally published by the Tibetan Nuns Project in Dharamsala. It is a 200-page Tibetan translation of the book Our Bodies, Our Selves, a long-time bestseller on women’s health and self care in the Western world.
The Tibetan translation was carefully adapted to be appropriate for Buddhist nuns and contains a foreword by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Marlies Bosch, the initiator of the first edition, will be helping distribute the books to remote border area nunneries in Ladakh this summer and will also be teaching women’s health at the nunneries in Ladakh and Zangskar.
