Kum Nye Dancing
Introducing the mind to the treasures the body offers.
Seventy-six new Kum Nye postures and dance movements.
Kum Nye is the art of making friends with all experience. When we practice the gestures, we become familiar with the body's subtle flows of energy. Through movement, energy expresses meaning and liberates the mind. Dynamic and expressive, the Kum Nye Dancing postures manifest the understanding that only in the present moment can we find real nourishment and knowledge. These postures ignite the power to engage us now.
Tarthang Tulku, a well-known Tibetan lama, is one of the few teachers still living to have completed a formal traditional training in Tibet before 1959. Since 1969, Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche has lived and worked in California, where he established various publishing and educational organizations and authored over thirty books, including two earlier volumes on Kum Nye (Kum Nye: A Tibetan Yoga and The Joy of Being).
