A Spiritual Approach to Healing


Tibetan Buddhists often consider a major disease like cancer to be a wakeup call. When we look at some of the deeper aspects of our being, like spirituality, and decide to radically change the way we have been living so far, it may be possible to heal our entire being.

Practices such as meditation and compassion can help us to understand and accept the different treatments we may have to undergo while fighting a disease.

IMPORTANT – In case of serious illness, Tibetan teachers strongly advise everyone to primarily follow an appropriate medical treatment and benefit from a spiritual approach in addition.

During this weekend held by Alain Beauregard, we will explore four main themes:

  • Our fundamental nature – a source of healing
  • Meditation – a practice to heal our being
  • Discovering the source of love within ourselves – to accept and become friends with ourselves
  • Visualising and invoking – another way to heal our being

This approach introduces a holistic view on the topic of healing that allows us to deal with all physical, mental, and emotional suffering.


Alain Beauregard is a physicist and a high-tech entrepreneur as well as a strong practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism, an instructor and senior teacher of Rigpa. About 11 years ago, at the age of 46, Alain was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer which was inoperable and had spread to such a point that his doctors said he was incurable. In less than 3 months of receiving chemotherapy combined with working on the emotional cause of disease and doing spiritual healing practices, his cancer went into complete remission. Alain has been ‘clean’ to this date.

This life-changing experience inspired Alain to give public talks and workshops about the powerful tools that Tibetan Buddhism offers, that can help us to develop compassion for ourselves and accepting things as they are - an emotional and spiritual approach to healing.

Alain’s story also inspired the radio series “Vivre autrement” that was aired on Radio-Canada.
