MMEE 5 - Water "Monkey in the Water" - Deep water survival and the quest for Implosion in the everyday
This is going to be something really QUITE spectacular. Format: An intimate exploration of Living Water in classroom, pool and kayaking on the river! Our bodies are over 70% water. Externalising the experience of our internal nature dramatically increases our understanding and ability to make the changes we know we must with the minimum of turbulence and strain. We will spend much of these two days actually in and on the water experiencing: * Living Water and the Thirst - Water has memory and even water can die. Think about it. * Vortex Power - harnessing the spiral that propagates life * Playing or drowning - bio-mechanical foundations of deep relaxation * The essence of Boundary * Fluid dynamics and the Self - Turbulence, cavitation, and creative instability for body, emotions and mind * Dissolving and the Great Stillness - "Now isn't that better?" * The mammalian dive reflex - what is it good for? * Sonics & the power of vibration * Phase transitions in the everyday - how water breaks all the rules (and so can you!) * The Empty and the Full * Denizens of the Deep - Water wights in river, tap, lake and sea But WHAT does it all MEAN? - Come and find out. You'll never be the same again.

Those who attended the earth session will tell you how the work at level 3-4 really helps you get the most out of the element series at level 5. BUT - don't be shy. If you want to come and are unsure, you are warmly encouraged to get in touch. Chances are that if you've been doing your Damo's cave regularly (50 hrs + ) you will have an amazing experience at level 5. If you're interested in coming along, and I've already got 8 people attending, then please drop me a line at email@example.com. I'll be handling the finances, arrangements and can give advice on travel if you need it. Payment can be done either via PayPal, Bank Transfer or cool cash (Sterling or Euros). I look forward to seeing you there. All the best, Dan
Water – Write up
WATER: We spent a short first session looking at a video of Viktor Schauberger's work on living water and the power of implosion. Then did some practical work on drinking water. Glass shape, charging with energy, ozonation - double blind taste tests. Quite a buzz. Then off to the water park where in flumes, rapids, jacuzzis and wave pools went spent about 6 hours playing. End of day 1 we had worked through: Living Water Drinking water variations 9 Sip breath for expanding capacity (and other uses you will know Bill) Blue fear excreting breath Yin/Yang breathing with full and empty meditations Craniosacral fluid vortexing Toning Boundary/interface techniques Waterfall practice (later with specific harmonic toning) Mamalian dive reflex - what is it good for Drownproofing Core conservation techniques Sinking and floating with the full and empty Breathing through the fingers (how much LONGER you can stay underwater!) Breathing through crown of head (longer still) Mudras for the great dissolving and sinking to the still center (underwater) Empty lung meditation on the bottom of the pool and how it matters on which side of the interface you let go of the world of air Yin dropping techniques 5 part alchemical breath transforming emotion to energy Foundations of in water shaktipat for private use only Rending the Veil in the water Foundations of Watsu Foundations of in water medical qigong - qi emission & dredging THEN we went home - ate/slept and went on the river next day. Much of that must remain in the setting but I can say that we did: Eddyline spinal bubbling & dual helix implosion work Full classic Middle pillar - with full lotus root work Rending the Veil on the river Many many observation and awareness exercises Meeting the Wights of many types Running small rapids with eyes closed for full feeling of the Schauberger principles Feeling the difference of the natural water compared with the water at the park the day before. etc etc That evening we had proper Belgian frites at a proper Belgian friterie and finally crashed out. Twas good.
Water testimonial Hi all, Thank you for a wonderful fun filled weekend :). I had a great time and the opportunity to build new layers on top of my prior techniques. Re-discovering stuff that I had forgotten and learning amazing new stuff. Thank you Dan for being such a warm and fun person – keeping us all together at times. Also the grounding excercise was great. Thank you Thomas for sharing your shaman experiences – extremely interesting and "far out stuff " (for me:). Hope to hear more abot that. Thank you Jessica for smiling – very contagious. And keeping the good conversation alive. Always very nice to listen to you talk - and ask questions. The smart questions that never come to my mind :) Thank you Peter for holding me in the pool – it felt like being a baby :). Also for telling us about the trick with "listening to your pulse". And the "high brow" chat in the car with Dan… Thank you Allyson for bringing your good mood :). I'm sorry i did not get to say goodbye. Thank you Susanne for executing a super dense package of theory, experiental action filled learning and plenty of fun :) Can't wait for the next one. These seminars do change the world. Also thank you for the shaktipat. Very powerful and revealing for me. Found a knot in my heart chakra. I guess I need to have a chat… Hope to see you all, including Jen, - again soon! So say we all, Chris
