The Yuthok Nyingthig (Tib. གཡུ་ཐོག་སྙིང་ཐིག་), the ‘Heart Essence of Yuthok’, composed by Yuthok the Younger, the great 12th Century Tibetan yogi-physician is a complete cycle of Vajrayana Buddhist practice, beginning with the preliminary practices (Tib. སྔོན་འགྲོ་ “ngöndro”) and progressing through the development and completion stage practices to the highest practices of Mahamudra and Dzogchen. It is characterized by its concise and simple methods which bring about both worldly benefits, including improved health and longevity, as well as the ultimate benefit of complete spiritual liberation. The Yuthok Nyingthig is the main spiritual practice of Tibetan physicians, and it contains many unique techniques to heighten the intuition and healing capacities of the doctor.

Dr Nida Chenagtsang, Traditional Tibetan physician and meditation master from Amdo, Tibet will introduce this very unique spiritual tradition and offer practical meditation instruction.

As part of these teachings, Dr Nida will also confer a very special 'la hooking' ritual. La energy is the subtle life force that exists within the body that can be compromised due to chronic illness, stress, physical or emotional trauma, or aggressive medical treatments. Signs of loss of la in the body can be chronic fatigue and depression. This ritual from the Yuthok Nyingthig root text involves 'hooking' back the la from the ten directions and bringing it back into one's own body in order to restore health and vitality.
