Kum Nye is a holistic healing system first documented in 8th-century Tibetan scripts, and it aims to liberate the body's energy so that it flows freely for optimum health. Now it's brought to the West and systematized by Lama Tarthang Tulku, so everyone can experience the benefits of this yoga-like Buddhist tradition. Featuring more than 70 relaxation exercises, this guide progresses logically from simple breath control and sitting postures to full-body self-massages and deep stretching movements. Gentle and suitable for all ages, these procedures promote emotional and physical well-being by relieving tension, heightening energy, improving concentration, and renewing clarity of the senses. More than 200 photographs, coupled with simple and detailed instructions, make this a unique and beautiful introduction.
