Journeys with Tibetan Medecine

Journeys with Tibetan Medicine” reveals the dramatic story of a family of Tibetan physicians from Buryatia (Siberia). The Badmayevs brought Tibetan medicine to the West: to St. Petersburg, Poland, Switzerland and the USA. They were border-dwellers who ventured to translate an Eastern Science into occidental thought and culture. Their story reveals a remarkable perspective of Tibetan medicine: namely, not as an ancient healing practice, but as a dynamic body of knowledge. As the Badmayevs made their way to the West, they encountered mystical inclined aristocrats, revolutionary lamas, party members with health problems, two Polish presidents and Swiss authorities. An odyssey which entailed four generations on a journey through the turmoil of the 20th century.

  1. […] And why not just publish on the main site www.anyma.ch or better directly in /research ? This question was one of the questions I asked myself all the time. We have already a website, and we’ve already chosen wordpress to run it – it’s basically a blog already, so why put up a new one? I’d better keep everything together? Well, we do so many different things at [ a n y m a ] from documentaries to media-art and video installations to our tv-workshops, and it already a big headache for me to keep that site in shape. So I too often refrain from posting there, in order not to flood it with meaningless stuff. Setting up a new blog avoids having to rethink the whole concept of our website – which is another project by it’s own, and I don’t want to tackle that one, so maybe the main reason for this blog is… layziness?
