  1. I get really hung up on the whole "healing' and 'helping' thing. There's a baseline assumption with that in believing that there's something wrong with 'you' or what you're doing that 'I' can fix, that ultimately seems like a dis-service more than a service. I'm all about working with whoever shows up and whoever is already here, it just seems like as much my benefit as theirs, and that it's not for me to say that where they are and what they're doing is not perfect for them in any given moment...
  2. Hi Lori - I'm not sure how a sincere dialogue is possible when you think we're all brainwashed by a guru. I would love a discussion about polarity practice (or any practice), but when the starting point is that I'm blind and a fool there doesn't seem like anywhere productive to go from there. Also, there's a difference between having a dialogue about a practice and launching a series of personal attacks on the people who do the practices. Maybe that's where the sorting needs to start.

    Energy

    When Cheya first told me about the chat room - this is the chat before the Slack chat - I won't say that I didn't believe her, but she's a much more advanced energy practitioner than I'll ever be, and what she was saying seemed a little fantastical. I became a believer when she linked me to the site and I was able to experience it for myself and started interacting with the people here. I was one of those folks who would just go sit in the channel and soak it in, or do practices in the energy of chat. The Energy channel in Slack is similar to the original chat. I haven't done cultivation practices outside of some basic tai chi, so I don't know that I'm qualified to compare and contrast the energies. In my limited experience tai chi generates a localized energetic experience, while a dive or one on one work creates more of an ocean of energy of which I am a part.
  5. Iyengar is alignment based, and a lot more time is spent in each pose exploring where strength/weakness, allowance/resistance is residing. Because so much time is spent in each pose, the practice develops strength as well as flexibility. Ashtanga and Iyengar are sometimes referred to as the dynamic and static forms of yoga. Sun salutations are a powerful practice in both styles and a great way to start a day!
  6. I've tried a number of forms of yoga - including Ashtanga, which i found really powerful. I always end up back in Iyengar, which most people find exceedingly tedious. There is something so restful about being so exacting in the asanas, but also there is a deeper stability in the precision of Iyengar that I didn't find anywhere else that seems so balancing and healing to the body. It helps that there are some amazing very high-level teachers in my area...

    Energy

    Yes, I feel energy within and from others. I've done group energy work here in the energy channel, and locally in group meditations and other intentional gatherings. Pros for me are quieting the mind and expanding my field, as well as recognizing and sometimes clearing out old patterns. Cons would be the frustration that can develop when I have an agenda about how things should be going, or when I'm not sure what's happening within the group dynamic. I've never really understood shielding, either how or why, so no.
  8. Thanks for posting this - really cool to watch and feel the energy...
