This three-day workshop, co-funded by the British Academy/ Leverhulme Small Research Grant, the Sino-British Fellowship Trust and IASTAM (International Association for the Study of Traditional Asian Medicine) aims at discussing and developing an interdisciplinary and multilingual digital knowledge base with the aim of providing a useful analytic tool for documenting and analysing Tibetan medical formulas, focusing on the treatment of rlung (‘wind’) or ‘stress-related’ disorders. The aim is to culturally translate, relate and analyse formula and substitution patterns, distinct ideas of efficacy and safety and different disease categories/ body images in relation to ways of different ways of knowing and styles of practice.
