Webinar: Touched by Untouchables: Massage as a Tool to Bridge Cultures and Heal Humanity
At a one-of-a-kind massage school in Kathmandu, Nepal, “untouchables” from the lowest level of society have been given new lives in the most unexpected of ways—through touch. In 2000, Rob Buckly opened Nepal’s first massage school for "untouchables" called Himalayan Healers. The students who train there radically shift their lives. And their touch, once shunned, becomes a blessing. Join us for an uplifting and inspirational presentation where Steve Capellini showcases Buckley's work and highlights several of his students and how their lives have been affected.
