Embodiment, meditation, and Kum Nye

Here’s an intriguing article by Reginald Ray about how embodiment supports meditation practice. My summary of what he says is that perhaps the reason people don’t go deeper in their meditation practice is because they are doing it all with their heads, and not enough with their bodies.What he doesn’t mention is why do people even want to go deeper in their meditation practice? So they can #begoodatlife.

Kum Nye is a practice that incorporates both meditation and body practice. In Kum Nye, we move, to open up space in the body, and then we sit, to allow the energy to flow into the spaces we open up.

You may not want to meditate and you may not want to do yoga, but you may want to try Kum Nye, which is the best of both and at the same time not like what you might traditionally think either one is.
