The Shang Shung Institute of America was founded in 1994, and it is located in Conway, Massachusetts. It’s achievements include: online bookstore, an extensive library of educational resources on Tibetan culture, an onsite and online bookstore full of materials on Tibetan culture and the Dzogchen Teachings of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, and many public programs and courses on Tibetan Culture & Art.
The most extensive project of the American branch to date is a Tibetan Medical School that is the first in the West to offer a four-year curriculum equivalent to traditional Tibetan medical schools in Tibet and India. To preserve existing Tibetan Medical knowledge as well as recover aspects of the tradition, the Shang Shung Institute in America has developed training programs in Traditional Tibetan Medicine, archived all classes, and worked on transcriptions of Traditional Tibetan Medicine commentaries.
The Shang Shung Institute in America is a non-profit and tax exempt 501(c)3 organization incorporated in the State of Massachusetts. The Institute receives funding from private donations, corporate matching grants, and grants.
