rubinThe Rubin Museum of Art has launched an exciting new exhibition called Bodies in Balance. It’s the most comprehensive exhibition of Tibetan medicine that has been staged in the U.S. It’s an interactive and creative exhibition that includes opportunities for people to assess their own ‘life forces’ and learn about what can bring their bodies in balance through foods, herbs, meditation and other traditional Tibetan approaches to health and healing. And, of course, one is able to view various works of art that portray the philosophy and approaches to Tibetan medicine.

Tonight on Healthstyles, producer and moderator Diana Mason, PhD, RN, discusses the exhibition and related special events with Tim McHenry, Director of Public Programs and Performance at the museum, and Jon Van Alphen, the museum’s Director of Exhibitions, Collections and Research.  The Rubin Museum focuses on art of the Himalayas and is a gem in the heart of Manhattan. Bodies in Balance opened on March 15th and will continue until September 8th.
