Intermediate Mixed Level Kum Nye: Joy of Being, Easening Practices

Thursdays, 7:00 – 8:30 PM 

“For our health and happiness, it is essential that we learn ways of relaxing and bringing ease to the mind and communicate directly with body and senses.”   Joy of Being

This ongoing 2021 Joy of Being series features practice that bring ease; promoting deep relaxation, giving mind space to be, while energizing the senses. This class also develops awareness that lessens the grasping quality that comes with perceiving and narrating experience. We explore redirecting energy that gets diverted into discomfort or negative patterning into positive action that relieves and empowers.
Instructor: Abbe Blum. Cost: $144.  Based on Tarthang Tulku’s Joy of Being. Prerequisite: familiarity with Kum Nye through at least one prior class.
