This is a replay of a retreat that took place live at Pure Land Farms in November of 2022

8 Teachings and guided practices | Approximately 20 hours of video content

Participants will receive one year access to video recordings to watch at your time

This retreat opens the door to the profound world of deep sleep (clear light) and dreaming from the perspective of Tibetan medical and spiritual practice, guiding us on a deep journey to the inner self. Combining theoretical instruction with practical meditation sessions, Dr. Nida will share powerful methods to access hidden knowledge about ourselves; to analyze and interpret dream language and symbols; to diagnose illness; and to transform obstacles and heal ourselves by resolving sand psychological blockages. Ultimately these practices teach us how to 'wake up' from the illusion which is the root cause of our suffering and connect with the true vast and luminous nature of our own minds.

This special teaching will be given according to the Yuthok Nyingthig tradition, the unique spiritual tradition of Tibetan physicians of which Dr. Nida is a lineage holder, and complemented by traditional Tibetan medical knowledge and Dr. Nida’s personal experience as a doctor, sleep and dream yogi, and international Buddhist teacher. 

The Yuthok Nyingthig is a unique and comprehensive set of Tibetan Buddhist practices transmitted by Yuthok Yönten Gönpo the Younger, the great 12th century Tibetan physician and meditation adept who is considered to be an emanation of Medicine Buddha. It is a complete system of practice from the Anuttarayogatantra (Highest Yoga Tantra) class of teachings, beginning with Ngöndro (the preliminaries) and progressing through Kyerim and Dzogrim (Creation and Completion Stage practices) to the highest practices of Mahamudra and Dzogchen.

The tradition includes concise and essential methods perfectly suited for busy contemporary practitioners that offer both worldly benefits including improved health and longevity for oneself and others, as well as the ultimate benefit of complete spiritual liberation. The Yuthok Nyingthig is the main spiritual tradition connected with Sowa Rigpa (Tibetan medicine), and it contains many unique methods to heighten the intuitive, diagnostic, and healing capacities of doctors. It is the only complete cycle of Vajrayana teachings in which Medicine Buddha as a yidam (personal meditative deity).
