Kunde (pronounced: kün-dey, spelled: ཀུན་བདེ།) Institute, a center for Tibetan wellness and healing, was founded by Doctor Yangdron Kalzang in 2004. The name “Kunde” was given to the center by her root teacher, Kenpo Troru Tsenam Rinpoche, one of the most highly respected scholars of traditional Tibetan Medicine in Tibet. In Tibetan, “Kunde” means “may all beings be healthy, wealthy and happy.” Dedicated to the mission of benefiting all people with affordable, integrative health services, Kunde offers a variety of traditional Tibetan and Asian medical modalities. Offices are located in Daly City and Berkeley.
With a goal to construct a bridge between Tibetan and Western Integrative Medicine to share the benefits and perspectives of these systems in a rigorous and open dialogue. We co-host "Tibetan and Western Integrative Symposium" with a focus on different topic each year for the past years with Stanford University School of Medicine, and Global Health Research Foundation. The upcoming conference will be held on May 22 - 23, 2020 at Stanford University, for more information about the conference, please visit conference website at www.twims.org.
