You can find details of the Medicine and Compassion project via the link below. If you are interested in these teachings and would like to find out more please get in touch.

Medicine and Compassion Project
David published the groundbreaking book Medicine and Compassion with Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche in 2006. The purpose of the book is to present practical tools for revitalising the caring spirit based on the teachings of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy. It is particularly relevant to those who find they need to draw on compassion in their professional as well as personal lives.

If you haven’t done so already, please do look into David’s recently published memoir, A Gentle Rain of Compassion. In the words of Matthieu Ricard who reviewed the book, ‘How rare and lovely'.

About David Dr David Shlim
David R. Shlim, M.D. is the co-author, with Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, of Medicine and Compassion: An American Doctor and a Tibetan Lama on How to Provide Care with Compassion and Wisdom.
Dr Shlim first visited Nepal in 1979 to work as a volunteer doctor for the Himalayan Rescue Association, at an aid post at 14,000 feet. After three stints near the base of Mt. Everest, he moved to Kathmandu in 1983 to begin what became a fifteen-year career as the Medical Director of the CIWEC Clinic Travel Medicine Centre in Kathmandu, the world’s busiest destination travel medicine clinic. He created a research program into the diseases that affect travellers, and has developed an international reputation as one of the most knowledgeable travel medicine doctors in the world. He is the author of more than forty-five original research papers, numerous chapters in textbooks, and is the recent past-president of the International Society of Travel Medicine.
