Erik Jampa Andersson

Erik Jampa Andersson is a practitioner and instructor of Sowa Rigpa (Traditional Tibetan Medicine) and the Yuthok Nyingthik. He is one of the few westerners to have completed a comprehensive education in the Gyu-zhi (Four Medical Tantras), as well as practical training in Tibetan herbalism, clinical treatment, and astrology. He established his clinical practice in Los Angeles in 2017, but has since moved across the pond to England, where he is now the director of Shrīmālā Healing Arts and resident teacher at Sorig Khang London.  

A longtime fixture in the Tara Mandala community, Erik first met the Dharma at age 13 while living in nearby Durango, CO, where a young interest in spirituality led him to begin sitting with a teen meditation and study group at the Durango Dharma Center. After a particularly moving experience reading the life story of Padmasambhava, Erik decided that he wanted to be a Nyingmapa, and began searching for a guru. It wasn’t long before he was led to his heart’s home at Tara Mandala, and he has been a devoted student of Lama Tsultrim’s ever since. After a stint in Tibetan studies at Naropa University, Erik underwent a classical five-year training in Tibetan Medicine at the Shang Shung Institute, followed by a half-year medical internship in Kathmandu. He received additional training in Sowa Rigpa, the Yuthok Nyingthig (the spiritual tradition of Tibetan Medicine), and additional studies from his medicine guru, Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, and is proud to be an authorized teacher with Sorig Khang International.
