La (Tib: བླ) is our subtle life force, the pure energy of the five elements that circulates within the body according to the lunar cycle. The la energy, closely connected with our consciousness protects and nourishes both the physical body and the mind.  La can be compromised due to chronic illness, stress, physical or emotional trauma, or aggressive medical treatments. Traditionally it is said that our la energy can also be 'stolen' by negative influences from the outside. Signs of loss of la energy include lack of strength and stability in the physical body, chronic fatigue, anxiety and depression.

In this one day teaching Dr Nida will explain la energy from both a medical and Buddhist perspective. He will then confer the long life empowerment from the Yuthok Nyingthig tradition (cycle of Vajrayana Buddhism connected with Tibetan Medicine) and 'hook' back the lost la from the ten directions and return it to one's own body in order to restore physical health and vitality, happiness and clarity. 

This is an excellent course for Vajrayana Buddhist practitioners of any lineage, or for anyone simply seeking greater health of body, energy, and mind. It is also a highly practical teaching for healthcare practitioners who are seeking a deeper understanding of the subtle causes of imbalance in their patients.
