WELCOME TO THE ATS HOME

The Association for Traditional Studies is a 501c3 not for profit dedicated to bringing eastern traditions in medicine & mindfulness to the modern world. Working with a network of individuals & organizations, we believe the solutions to many of the challenges society faces can be found in the paths of cultivation developed long ago in the east. Through seminars, medical clinics, organic farming, & community spaces, we are quietly changing the world one individual at a time.

COMMUNITY CENTER

Asia House 828 is our community learning center in Asheville, North Carolina. Featuring health and wellness classes, evening lectures, yoga, taiji, meditation & much more. A place for the community to gather is the first step in building a more mindful community.

MEDICINAL HERB FARM

Beyond Organic is what agriculture needs to be. Growing medicinal herbs & tea, along with traditional garden crops, Appalasia Farm showcases natural farming methods and how to bring them to market to encourage small scale farming and land preservation.

SISTER ORGANIZATIONS

Since 1992, ATS has trained & inspired many lives through its work. Whether in England, Switzerland, Germany, across the USA or just about anywhere, you can find people who have modeled their work after our mission & are busy changing their communities one individual at a time.
