"In mastering Kum Nye, we learn how to benefit from all manner of experience; we gain confidence that is grounded in self-knowledge and establishes a foundation of joy that can sustain us throughout our lives. We learn what it means to be complete within ourselves: We discover what it means to BE."
The Joy of Being goes beyond the purely physical aspects of relaxation to directly convey the joyful, wide-awake flavor of meditation. Once we experience that intense, energized state of being, we know it can lead us home to the heart of our being.
"While some orientation is helpful, words alone cannot connect you with Kum Nye: it is the practice that gives you the direct experience, and it is the experience that enables you to transform the quality of your life."
