The Rubin Museum opens their new exhibition with a celebration Friday evening, March 18th. This event is sold out, but a limited number of tickets may be available at the door.

Practices for healing vary across the world. In Tibetan Buddhism, mental, physical, and spiritual well-being are interdependent, and can only be achieved through a variety of holistic practices, from ritual to medicinal, that restore balance to these three aspects.

Healing Practices: Stories from Himalayan Americans presents the diverse ways that Tibetan Buddhist artworks and practices have served as roadmaps to well-being, with over 25 objects from the Rubin Museum’s collection set alongside personal stories and experiences from Himalayan Americans. Centered around the themes of prevention, healing, and longevity, the exhibition highlights how these living traditions are transformed and adopted for today’s world, inspiring visitors to reflect on their own healing journeys.
