KNR105 Beginning Kum Nye: Listening to the Body, Healing Body and Mind

This is the first semester of a year-long introduction to Kum Nye Tibetan yoga, a gentle healing system adapted by Tibetan lama Tarthang Tulku for the West. This fall we learn to listen to our bodies, opening our senses and touching our feelings directly. We explore how we can integrate body and mind in all our activities, promoting relaxation that has a vital and lasting quality.

Anyone who wants to learn Kum Nye systematically is encouraged to start here; it’s also possible, however, to take beginning Kum Nye classes and topics in any order. Those who want to delve more deeply into Kum Nye’s foundations are also encouraged to return to this Kum Nye home—and to learn about teaching Kum Nye here as well.

Open to all levels of students.

 

This class can be joined either in person or online. Please contact us to let us know if you will be joining online.

KNR208 Kum Joy of Being: How to Change the Pattern

The Joy of Being Path: How to Change the Pattern Through Relieving Busyness and Attuning to What Supports the Whole of Our Being


“For a long time, we have relied on mind to direct the body. Kum Nye teaches us that the body can also help relax the mind and stimulate its sensory capacities.” “The practice of Kum Nye promotes deep relaxation, giving mind space to be” Joy of Being, 114, 115.

Asking how to change the pattern of what limits beauty, clarity, and ease, the second year of this ongoing Joy of Being class continues to tune and deeply relax body, breath, and mind. Starting with chapter 17 of Joy of Being, “Mind and Perceptions,” our practices “look beneath the patterns woven into mind” in order to experience more directly the “sensing aspect of mind” that opens to wonder and new ways of knowing.

This course requires prior experience with Kum Nye or consent of the instructor
