Medicine In Action

Being a good relative involves engaging Traditional ways of being which require us to interact with others from a place of compassion and respect. When we actively practice this way of living, we will not only prevent bad things from happening but promote the well-being of all people.

By putting our Medicine in Action through the Seven Teachings that follow, we will be contributing to the health of our families and communities in very tangible ways.
