Jan. 14 / Food, Relaxation, and Movement as Medicine (KNR412)

Whole foods received by our bodies in an optimal state of digestion, provide fuel for energy, and the elements for building and repair of our structure and physiologic functioning. Relaxation through Kum Nye allows us to transform deeply held tensions in our subtle body energy system into circulating energy, and wake up areas that are dormant, healing at the deepest level. Healthy movement supports circulation of fluids and energy, releasing tension, and expressing our best intentions through action in the world. In this workshop we explore healing through food, relaxation and movement, utilizing Kum Nye Relaxation as our foundation.

Tasting Relaxation (Dec 27- Jan 1, 2017)

Tibetan Yoga (Kum Nye) practice opens the senses to feeling. This flow of feeling can loosen even chronic tension.

Gentle movement, breathing, and awareness practices help us to discover this relaxation.

Instructors: Peggy Kincaid, Jack van der Meulen and the Nyingma Institute faculty. Retreat begins Tuesday at 10 AM and concludes on Sunday at 2 PM. This retreat includes the “Renewing and Refreshing the Senses” workshop on December 31. Suitable for all levels of students.
