Stimulating the Wholeness of Being

3-Day Online retreat

June 2 – 4, 2023 

Once we are in tune with universal laws, our purpose in life becomes clear. Through Kum Nye Healing we are no longer separate from ourselves. We feel complete within. Nothing is missing; nothing then needs healing, for the nature of our being is open.

— Arnaud Maitland, Kum Nye Healing Teachings, 2018

This retreat is a chance to practice what is central to Kum Nye Healing: bringing together what has become separate by stimulating the wholeness of being.

Kum Nye brings mind into the body and stimulates the flow of feeling through stillness and movement. With this practice we create inner space and deepen understanding. Life is changed by contacting and cultivating the energy of the breath. In such, beginning to discover the healing rhythms that link us to the vitality of the universe itself.

During the three days of the retreat we will join in healing circles that promote communication between inner and outer space, opening healing for ourselves and others.
