Suren Shrestha was born in Nepal, forty-five miles southeast of Mt. Everest. In the village where he grew up, people were healed by herbalists, monks and medicine men using shamans' drums, gongs, and mantras. At age fifteen, he came to the United States, later attended college, and received a B.S. in Civil Engineering. In 1999, he began his own business, Serenity Tibet, in Boulder, Colorado, where he lives with his wife and daughter. Noting the growing interest in alternative medicine in the US, Suren returned to Nepal to learn how to practice ancient healing techniques that use sound and vibration. He was taught these by Tibetan monks and the yogi Tahalkishor Maharaj. Suren has given workshops and assisted clients with healing bowl work in the Rocky Mountain region and all over the United States. He is raising funds through his teaching to build an orphanage for the homeless children in his native village.
