  1. After helping out Tina for the last 2 weeks at the Casa de Karma in Mezcala, I have moved into an apt. near the lake. We will begin Tai Ji /Pushing Hands classes at the Chapala Malecon, beginning Monday March 5, every M-W-F, 8-10 AM and 4-6 PM (if there is interest in this late afternoon class) Classes free for 1st two weeks. After that, there will be a Suggestions/Donations box. Cheers!

  3. Yin is stronger and more abundant than Yang, but Yang is more obvious and active. There is more water on earth than fire, for example, but fire phenomena such as lightning are more exciting and attract more attention. Still, ever since the term Yin/Yang first appeared in China, the word "Yin" has always preceded the word "Yang", and in Chinese this indicates a position of Yin superiority that long antedates the advent of patriarchy in Chinese society.

  4. She probably had to wield the yang side of her personality more often than maybe she felt comfortable with to make up for my dad's weakness. This left me with a negative mistrust of my yang power and a dependence on the yin for survival. R. J. COLE, The Dragon's Treasure 6 likes like

  8. Thanks, Bisbee Gal! The cartoon is a. nuanced example of the dynamic familiar to Meditators/others--the MonkeyMind, ever-restless,jumping from one train-of-thought to the next....living in the Past(shoulda-coulda-woulda) and in the Future (" I will...). The time-proven solution is to give the Monkey-Mind a simple task...such as observing breath/thoughts...

  12. Pushing Hands and DAO & Dia-LOGOS In the ancient Chinese Dao de Jing (aka Tao de Ching)... 1st Chapter 1st verse DAO ke dao. feichang DAO DAO that can be wordized/verbalized... isn't the authentic/true/eternal DAO In the ancient Gospel of John (in Greek) 1st Chapter 1st verse In the beginning was the: * LOGOS (Greek) *WORD (English translat *VERBO (Spanish translation) *DAO (Chinese translation) Dialogue comes from Dia-LOGOS
  13. Pushing Hands with eyes closed...can be a pleasing are freezing sensory experience...like a massage. Additional element...Tai Ji/Pushing Hands...there is the practice of the VERTICAL, rather than the horizontal. As with the spinning top...the gyroscope...the Earth...there are the 2 poles...Yin & Yang...and we Humans are between the Sun/Yang & Earth/Yin polarity. Pushing Hands allows us to open up the polarity circulation. The FLOW. Having a Partner, with a Mutual Contract to be Non-competitive, but rather to help the P experience sitting back/down gradually more...to open the GUA..the zone of Acupuncture Meridians in the loins...so one does not have tension/fear of suddenly being pushed forcefully. Nevertheless... One stays ALERT...maintaining/deepening one':s ROOT
  14. Tnx.Root meaning of YOGA is...UNION. More than physical or flexible...
  15. As a future resident, I just now discovered/read this process of Digital Community Meeting. Most impressive. One piece of Info, of relevance to individuals/NGOs/Charities for Fundraising, as English Conversation Partners with Chinese/other learners of English, using Fiber Optic Internet connection. Google search "Online English Teacher". It is a "Sellers' Market". The going rates are from $15 to $30 USD +. If a group organized, they could have a stronger bargaining position. I have no financial interest. I am not advertising. Just Google it. But..if there is a Charity/NGO interested in this project, I would welcome the opportunity to chat with you.

  17. My mother-in-law was an Acupuncturist, as was her father and others in the Family Tree. She was Head of the Acupuncture Dept. for a govt. hospital in Shanghai. In such hospitals, folks are able to choose between approaches, whether drugs/surgery or herbs/acupuncture. When Acupuncture made mainstream media discussion 40+ years ago, there were charges regarding its demonstrated effectiveness for centuries with Chinese...charges that it was a Placebo effect, cultural conditioning, hypnotism, hogwash etc. In terms of Western scientific research & results, those explanations have been left behind. Now race horses are given Acupuncture treatments. USAmerican Pragmatism: "Whatever works...even if we don't quite understand it.. "
