Dance of EagleExplorer

The Eagle Dance is the main dance of the Maya, although in a later period it was ousted by the Dance of the Corn, which merged three symbolic ideas of dance – the Serpent, Jaguar and Eagle. However, the plumage that was used in the Dance of the Eagle stayed as an external element of symbolism. What was the Eagle Dance for the Maya?

The Matrix of DancePhilosopher

Dance is an experience defined by certain tasks and expressed in a mental form. Dance is a quality that consists of either rest (if the body is in a static state) or motion (if the body is in a dynamic state). Dance is characterized by externally expressed positions and movements, it cannot be examined as a random or spontaneous position or movement because it is strictly directed at a certain mental work. It is always holistic, and in its entirety, it is based on a certain matrix.

Sufi YogaPhilosopher

The grass and the trees, the rocks and the fields, everything that announces and anticipates, everything that can be seen as One, is Alif. The station Ba is separation after unity (tafrika). Each true doctrine has a form that draws us ever nearer to the understanding of the soul. The station Jim is a space that collects and forms a unity.

TangoExplorer

Tango is the art of dancing in search of yourself. Who says tango is a partner dance? Tango is the loneliest dance of all. Yes, it yearns for a response however this might be the response of the raindrops falling on the pavement or the dancing snowflakes… Tango is a dialogue with the surrounding space, yet who or what carries through this dialogue is of no relevance to the tangueros. What matters to is the state.

Belly dance – the art of livingPerson

The dance is a form of filling up for women. This is  the art of living of the feminine principle, because the woman can only live in  the actions that fill her up. The actions that don't fill up the woman, on the  contrary, exhaust her both physically and spiritually.

SynchronizationMaster

Synchronization is the level of practice, which is characterized by the notion of axis. In reality, this is the Doctrine of Naturalness, which has its own physical basis. The first condition for synchronization is filling up. What is the form that should be filled up? That's the main difficulty for a person who is starting to practice, because he needs to understand what is really hampering his development.

ConcentrationMaster

Concentration is one of the most important topics related to human development. Only those who have mastered concentration can progress in their practice since thus they have gained access to the concept of measure. The highest knowledge accessible to Man is the knowledge of concentration because this is the effort with the highest frequency controllable by Man. This effort helps him to understand not only his own nature but also the nature of super-consciousness.

The teacher and the student. A private opinion on a general questionPerson

This topic is, I’d say, more important for me (as well as for those who teach others) than for you. Having written an article entitled "The teacher and the student", where, first of all, I demonstrated the conditions which characterize the relationship of the teacher and the student, and having received many questions related to this article, I decided to continue the topic. And since the questions were addressed mainly to me personally, I will actually continue to speculate on this topic from the perspective of my own experience.

The Way of WomenPerson

The question of understanding or defining the idea that forms a kind of consequential understanding of women from the perspective of their development or life, can not be declarative by nature, or, indeed, purely argumentative by nature for two fundamental reasons. Because the main problem when we consider the question of women lies, first of all, in the emotional perception, and secondly - in the ad-hoc behavior of society towards women.

Geometry of the BodyPerson

The inability, incompetence and unwillingness of contemporary Man to work on himself is typical not only for those who do nothing but also for the ones who are engaged in something. Development requires a genuine understanding of what you do and a genuine result. And the genuine result is the internal satisfaction from the process.

The practitioner: The difference between the first and the second levelPerson

One of the basic problems for the practitioner is related to the fact that the beginner does not focus his attention on where he might be in the nearest future. He is in a state of expectation, thinking that things will naturally clarify themselves, they will come naturally. As a result, he is not simply incapable of moving ahead, but disguised under new ‘garment’ his old problems get reinforced and he starts actually moving backwards.

The Muscular SystemPerson

The muscular system in the Taoist tradition is related to the concept of the Alchemical body. The muscular system is in fact the whole body. In the modern world this system is — from the very beginning — subjected to unsystematic and unnecessary (above all for the system itself) development both by the people who strive for physical development, and by those who neglect it completely.

Mistakes of the people engaged in inner practicesPerson

Today, when the concept of development is determined in different ways by different people, when development is defined by those who aren’t actually engaged in it, it’s really hard to instill in people the need to understand what development is exactly, instead of getting engaged in it without the proper preparation.

SkinPerson

Skin system is a complex and organised system that first of all depends on the circulation of energy in the lungs and depth of breathing. I.e. in essence from the effort we have during breathing we can tell about properties and quality of skin.

StudentPerson

A student is, first and foremost, a condition for development, and second – a definition for a man who believes he possesses the qualities of a student. However, whereas the first is independent or scarcely dependent on the person, the second is a developed condition which combines the learning experience with the ability to learn.

Brainless means unfocusedPerson

Unless our mind is focused, we cannot develop our body symmetrically since the energy is not distributed evenly. The focus of the consciousness is determined either by its total suspension or the development of an interlocking effort. In fact – although this may sound a bit offensive for the ones who work on developing their brain – in terms of energetic indicators, for the body the state of not-thinking is equivalent to the state of thinking. In other words, ‘Brainless’ is either the person who has not learned how to think normally or the person who is being distracted from the state of not-thinking by certain thoughts.

Body PartsPerson

Originally a human body is one whole mechanism that relies on specific rhythm of breathing (put there by innate internal proportion of a human that is a measure of breathing) and a specific measure of movement (coming from external proportions that are regulated by hands, legs, head and tummy-single source of nutrition).

The Palace of the Great Lord (Tai Huan Gong 太皇宫)Master

The palace of The Great Lord (Tai Huan Gong) is situated in the forehead region and corresponds with the frontal lobes of the brain. This Palace determines regulation, rate of development of a human body and is directly responsible for building operations of the body. This is a supporting Palace but it has significant capabilities.

Mistakes of Taiji Quan PractitionersPerson

Most of taiji practitioners think that they have got a result by remembering sequences and movement in the form or by feeling confidence in their movements looking like movements of great masters. In reality this doesn’t mean at all that a practitioner does not make mistakes. Mistakes can be separated in to mental, physical and energetic. Here are some of them.

Five Main Ways of LearningPerson

We can define five main ways of learning: group practices, individual session, master classes, seminars and workshops. Regardless of what format we pick to teach a person we should keep his individuality. This means to point a person primarily to look at oneself. To make that happen it is necessary to follow how does the practitioner focuses during classes, how one concentrates.

Problematic Points of LearnersPerson

In practical methods we can reveal problematic points and zones for learners. Regardless of what kind of collective education and how we direct it – from a position of a host, instructor, master or a teacher, we should always understand that no matter how many people there are in the same space, they start to influence that space and every person brings his advantages and disadvantages. The most important in the space harmony, being in naturalness.

Knowledge Should Be Higher Than UsPerson

Often practitioners rely on a person, a human. This should be analysed. We should understand that knowledge should always be higher than us. It doesn’t matter how we call this knowledge – Daoist yoga, belly dance, or something else. The task and principals are all the same everywhere.

First Law of Education – Do Not DisturbMaster

When a person comes to you to practice firstly you should consider – do you need him in your practices? Maybe it’s best to advise him to go to another group, to prepare, and then come to you…

The BloodMaster

The seed of father and the blood of mother define our existence in space of our physical nature. Blood is the main source of nourishment for the brain. Our feelings experiences and emotions depend on our blood circulation. But most importantly the ability of the body to capture the process of energy breathing depends on the state of ones blood.

African YogaExplorer

African yoga is the art of transforming by working with your body work in various rhythms. This practice helps cultivate one’s movements and sensational fulfillment with the help of rhythm. Africans know since ancient times that understanding the link between rhythm and movement helps one achieve deep internal transformations. They believe that dance is key for shaping one’s power and one’s relation to the Ashé, the energy that fills the entire universe.

Sacred DancePhilosopher

It doesn't take so much for the dance to be born – just a sound and a response of the body to it. It may be the rumble of the African drums, or the rain, hitting the pavement, or it may even be the heartbeat. Nature has endowed each Man with certain rhythms that ask a question, and certain movements that give the answer to it. Their coincidence creates the dance - the dialogue between the body and music, the dialogue between Man and himself or another person, the dialogue with God or the Universe.

Alchemy of TuishouPerson

More and more people realize that martial arts are not about random fighting but are above all discipline, strategy and tactics, in other words martial arts are related to inner work. Tui shou (Chinese for ‘pushing hands’), initially known as jie shou or da shou, is a practice developed to the highest degree by the Chinese art of Taiji quan. However Tui shou is essentially much deeper and broader than a simple set of exercises or techniques for applying taiji quan, as it is sometimes perceived.
