why it's difficult

to make a namkha

Harmonizing means dealing with Chaos, and Chaos never wants to reduce its presence.
 
For this reason on the way to harmonization a variety of obstacles appears.
 
 
I can’t count all obstacles I’ve overcome on this path. From the very Namkha workshop there was something I was forced to deal with.
 
With unexpected cold, with severe back pain, with a lack of health and energy in days of practical course.
 
With threads tearing apart, sticks breaking. With chaotic energies literally laughing at my face, asking jokingly: how do you cope now?
 
When I was harvesting sticks for the previous website , I fell on the ice. I barely escaped swimming in ice-cold water – the pond nearby hadn’t frozen yet.
 
 
I’ve encountered so many obstacles on the way – with your Namkhas, my Namkhas, with all activities I’m involved in.
 
Tools break, vice slip away, I remake rhombuses for 3 or more times straight… Chisel slips away – and breaks sticks… Making mistakes in colors and unwrapping threads…
.
.
And this still happens after more than a 100 thread-crosses I made. It’s not the matter of my skill.

 

It’s about the obstacles a Namkha maker is forced to deal with.
 
 
This is why I charge so much for Namkhas. And this is why it never will be a cheap process.
 
 
It takes great energy to make a good Namkha. And great rest after.
 
For this reason I set this cost for making.
 
 
Namkhas are powerful items with potential to truly change one’s life.
 
This is why it difficult to make them – and it takes much energy and resilience.
