The Yoga of Bliss: Yuthok Nyingthig Karmamudra

May 15 - May 19, 2019

Karmamudra refers to the ancient Buddhist practice of partnered sexual yoga, whether in pure visualization form or with a physical partner. Also known as ‘The Path of Skillful Means’ or ‘The Path of Great Bliss’, karmamudra uses powerful meditation techniques to transform the raw energy of ordinary sexual pleasure, worldly desire, and orgasmic bliss into vehicles for spiritual transformation and liberation.Aiming to inform and empower, Dr. Nida offers these rarely taught practices in order to clear away common misconceptions and offer vital context and instructions through which beginner and advanced students of any gender or sexual orientation can learn to engage with typically destructive and distracting emotions in a skillful and healthy way.This teaching includes an introduction to and empowerment for the Yuthok Nyingthig, the unique cycle of Vajrayana Buddhist practice connected with Tibetan Medicine, characterized by its concise and simple methods designed to bring about both worldly benefits--including improved health and longevity, enhanced healing and diagnostic skills--as well as the ultimate benefit of complete spiritual liberation.Please note, that while traditional teachings and techniques will be introduced and may be practiced using visualization, no physical sexual practices will take place during this retreat.Open to all Vajrayana Buddhist practitioners
