Led by Andis Egle*
Power Kum Nye opens up body, breath and mind to our natural aliveness. The energy centers fully, vibrantly alive and inner and outer integrated in fundamental openness. Thinking no longer poses an obstacle to being. Creativity becomes our way of being
According to the Kum Nye tradition, a healthy mind inhabits the present moment. Undisturbed by memories of the past, free of fears in the present, and unconcerned with projections of the future, a healthy mind engages experience freshly and directly. the present moment is the moment of embodiment - the right now of experience.
- Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche in Kum Nye Dancing
With Rinpoche's teachings we can align body, breath and mind with the dynamic of the power of time. From one point of view time is always changing, but as we enter time there is continuity, but without beginning or ending, not even transitions.
To enter Time, you must go through four gates. At the first gate you have to let go of the past. Being completely involved with what you are doing helps you to go through the second gate. The third gate will open when you are no longer pulled towards the future. Finally, when you shed the sense of 'I', you pass through the fourth gate. Now you enter Time.
