The Great Connection Online Course

In this three-day practice-centered retreat, Dr. Nida offers Dzogchen Ati Yoga instruction according to Tibet’s great 12th century physician and meditation adept Yuthok Yönten Gönpo, widely acclaimed as an emanation of the Medicine Buddha, following his seminal teachings entitled “The Great Self-Liberation of Samsara-Nirvana of the Great Perfection of Yuthok”.

This program focuses on Ati Yoga preliminary practices and trekchöd, “cutting through hardness”, and includes the special blessing of the Yuthok Nyingthig (Heart Drop) cycle of teachings. The text we will study is Dr. Nida’s Mirror of Light: A Commentary on Yuthok’s Ati Yoga, along with his Weapon of Light.
