Our Nonprofit Organization

Tibetan Cranial nearly became extinct as a result of the Chinese invasion of Tibet. When Shar Lee, Master Teacher and Lineage Holder, realized that she was the sole person to whom this teaching was passed by the last-surviving Tibetan monk practitioner, she dedicated herself to preserving this work, teaching others to do it, and expanding the number of people who experience it. Toward this end, Shar formed the Tibetan Cranial Association, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation.

The Tibetan Cranial Association’s mission is to assure the preservation of Tibetan Cranial in a manner true to its historical roots. The Association seeks to fulfill its mission by sponsoring training programs for those wishing to learn this healing art, offering clinics and other events that expand the number of people who can experience TC, spreading awareness about Tibetan Cranial, and supporting TC Practitioners and Apprentices.

The Association is governed by a Board of Directors elected annually by its members. Currently, the Directors consist of Shar Lee and a number of Practitioners. Tibetan Cranial Practitioner Susan Bernhardt serves as President and Treasurer, and Practitioner Devon Parker serves as Vice President and Secretary. Nancy Sparrow guides the organization’s day-to-day activities as Executive Director. Please feel free to contact Susan with any questions about the Association (susan@tibetancranial.org) or call 720-378-8044.

Tibetan Cranial continues to exist in part because of the generosity of donors. Donations enable us to provide scholarships to Apprentices in our training program and to support our operations.

"While visiting Boulder, CO I happened upon Tibetan Cranial. After decades of suffering debilitating pain, I sought many different treatments and managed to heal a lot of the pain issues in the body, but could not shake the intense & frequent migraines. After my first TC session, I had absolutely no pain anywhere! I hadn't experienced that in over 20 years. It lasted a couple of days then I had another session. Again, no pain. After returning home, I decided to fly to Colorado once a month for 2-3 sessions and found that the length of pain free time got longer and longer. Eventually I was healed of pain entirely. This lasted 3 years, until I was injured again in an accident. I'm now looking for a TC practitioner n the LA area. Hands down the best modality I've ever experienced! Thank you to all who offer this powerful gift to the world."
