Happy Losar Greetings for the Tibetan New Year of the Water Rabbit

Whether we use a solar or lunar calendar I think we can all agree that the tail end of winter is the ideal time for letting go of negative habits and adopting a healthier, more positive direction for mind and body in the year ahead. Which brings us to the new programme of events at KSD Edinburgh, designed with just that in mind!
