"Not who starts, but who Perseveres", quotes - the motto of the Amerigo Vespucci school sailing ship. In the course of my life, I have always tried to achieve the best. I graduated in economics, then in physiotherapy, and finally in medicine and surgery, but when I met Dr. Nida in 2000, my path and my goal finally came to light.

Everyone in this world needs to understand who he is and where he is headed. Sowa Rigpa taught me this and so I strive every day to be able to transmit it, in the best possible way, to anyone who is part of my path. I am currently working as MD in Italy and an advocate for Sowa Rigpa practices. I have been an international teacher of several aspects of Sowa Rigpa, such as the Four Tantra, the Ku Nye, and Mantra Healing.


The correlation between good quality of sleep and dreaming is a fascinating aspect of human physiology and psychology. While sleep quality encompasses various factors such as duration, continuity, and depth of sleep, dreaming occurs predominantly during the rapid eye movement (REM) stage of the sleep cycle, which is characterized by increased brain activity, vivid imagery, and heightened emotional experiences. Understanding the relationship between sleep quality and dreaming sheds light on the intricate interplay between different stages of sleep and their impact on cognitive and emotional processes.

While medications are commonly prescribed to manage sleep disorders, it's essential to consider the balance between efficacy, potential side effects, and biases associated with pharmaceutical treatments. Like any medication, those used to treat sleep disorders can have potential side effects that range from mild to severe. Common side effects of hypnotic medications include drowsiness, dizziness, impaired coordination, memory impairment, and daytime sedation.

By addressing the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit and employing a combination of internal remedies, lifestyle modifications, and external therapies, Sowa Rigpa, rooted in ancient wisdom and principles, offers valuable insights into promoting restful, rejuvenating sleep and fostering overall health and well-being. In conclusion, while Western medicine relies on objective measures and scientific methods to diagnose and treat sleep disorders, Tibetan medicine provides a holistic framework that considers the balance of energies and the interconnectedness of the individual's entire being. By integrating insights from both systems, individuals can adopt comprehensive approaches to promote restful, rejuvenating sleep and enhance overall health and well-being.
