Robert Sachs is a guest instructor for the Chopra Center for Well Being in San Diego and lecturer in Tibetan Medicine for the Sino-American Rehabilitation Association College in Los Angeles. He is sought after as a lecturer at holistic health care conferences nationally, has been featured in a number of holistic, wellness, and spa magazines, T.V. and radio programs nationally and internationally, and has hosted his own talk radio shows in New Mexico and California focusing on a unique system of astrology called 9-Star Ki and alternative health care. He is the author of Nine-Star Ki: Your Astrological Companion to Feng Shui (Vega Press 2001), Tibetan Ayurveda: Health Secrets from The Roof of The World (Inner Traditions, 2001), Rebirth Into Pure Land (Diamond Way Ayurveda, 1994), Perfect Endings: A Conscious Approach to Dying and Death (Inner Traditions International, 1998), The Passionate Buddha: Wisdom on Intimacy and Enduring Love (Inner Traditions, 2002), The Buddha at War: Peaceful Heart, Courageous Action in Troubled Times (Watkins Press, 2006), and his and Melanie’s most recent book to promote Ayurvedic treatments and wellness for individuals and therapists, Ayurvedic Spa. Most of these titles are available in several European languages.
Along with his wife, Melanie, Robert has pursued studies in Indian and Tibetan Ayurveda for over a decade. Recognized by such teachers as Dr. Deepak Chopra and other physicians of both eastern and western traditions, their published works in this field are considered to be the clearest and most usable texts available.
With a educational background and training that is as conventional as it is ‘alternative,’ Robert works with physicians, clinics, hospitals, and private individuals and organizations, teaching them how to integrate contemporary scientific approaches with the ancient wisdom traditions in the areas of stress management, preventive health care, and relationship and group dynamics.
