I’m taking the Healing Love retreat. It’s taken me 5 years to arrange my life to get to a retreat. I’m so excited I can hardly stand it.May 11, 2011 at 11:01 pm #37300May 12, 2011 at 12:31 am #37302
Taking these things live is a much different experience
than just doing homestudy. You get complete immersion,
you are surrounded by a lot of high energy friendly
people, you get acceleration from the group energy,
and it’s a lot of fun. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
Only a little over a month away for your retreat . . .

This would be a good summer to take it.
The Kan and Li’s run in alternation,
and Greater is not offered this year.
If you take Lesser this summer, it gives you
the option to take Greater next year.
Otherwise, it could be 3 or more years
before you could take Greater.

What makes these Asian practices like qigong, pranayama, asana and so on interesting is that if one is seriously and cleverly doin’ them, one can get exremely strong and healthy body.
Breakdance, parkour, hiphop, urban exploration…there are so many interesting disciplines…
But these guys in soldier costumes are dancers and many of them, because they are for performance, have probably have deteorating body when quite young.
Even though Finland is such a small country there are talented operatic singers, ballet dancers etc., but they all have problem that they can have already quite young their body partly destroyed because of their profession, so opera singer might need to have hearing aid although he is only in his 40s (like for example Jorma Hynninen have needed, a Finnish baritone, born 1941).
Quite interesting is young Finnish ballerina, who has been few years in Corps de Ballet of American Ballet Theatre (she was actually living quite nearby where I was living few years back, when she still was in gymnasium). I think she was already needing physiotherapy, according to her own words in newspaper article, when she visited Finland during the first year of her employment.
Ps. I don’t know if picture comes through, but Ms. Miettinen (Elina Miettinen) is actually Russian although she has Finnish name.May 16, 2011 at 1:55 am #37318
Vajrayana or Tantric Buddhism had its origin in India, where it seems to have been practiced, at any rate in its earlier period, say the fourth to eight centuries CE, by small initiatory cult groups. The central ritual of these groups was the ganachakra, a night time sacramental circle, usually outdoors, often in a cremation ground or similarly spooky and powerful location, with distincly antinomian elements. These included the ritual use of sexuality, although it’s not clear how far this was performed literally and how far symbolically. The ganachakra involved possession, dancing and singing, and also magical procedures. it was seen as an occasion to enter a non-ordinary state of consciousness.

I still had some associations to STALKER’s posting.
I have for example in my mind some particular ritual practices of Wiccans…some of them are not very decent from conventional point of view.
I have impression that martial arts are not very important for Healing Dao, so persons don’t challenge each other that way during gatherings and also certain type of rituals with orgiastic (frenzy!) tendencies are too hardcore, because they really are meant for the “filthy few.”
There are really so much material in written for as well as video one that one really has to consider how much one can master. Retreats, especially if one is physically on the other side of the globe, are serious undertaking…karmically, IMHO.
