A Conversation with Alejandro Chaoul-Reich, Assistant Professor and Director of Education, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center
Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and guest presenter Alejandro Chaoul-Reich discuss the benefits of Tibetan yoga and sound meditation in cancer patients as revealed in research findings at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. Since 2000, they formed a team that included MD Anderson researchers and Ligmincha Texas practitioners to investigate the possible benefits of the ancient Bön mind-body practices of tsa lung and trul khor with different cancer populations and their caregivers. They also have researched the benefits of Tibetan sound meditation to ease cognitive impairment after chemotherapy in women with breast cancer. This research has helped reshape the clinical group and individual meditation sessions that MD Anderson provides to patients and caregivers, and now also to faculty and staff.
