Lean Forward from Within the Vortex and the Vortex Moves with You: Words of Power and the Yoga of Primal Reality -- 2019-2020 Programme

Salvador Dali -- Nike, Victory Goddess of Samothrace, Appears in a Tree Bathed in Light (c. 1977)

“The moon in all her immaculate purity hung in the sky, laughing at this world of dust. She congratulated me for my carefully considered maneuvers and invited me to share in her eternal solitude.” --  Shan Sa, Empress

“I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone.” -- Rainer Maria Rilke

"Now I understand
why the old poets of China went so far and high
into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.”
-- Mary Oliver, Why I Wake Early

“The more powerful and original a mind, the more it will incline towards the religion of solitude.”
 -- Aldous Huxley


IN RESPONSE TO NUMEROUS INQUIRIES:

We are over half way through 2019 and hurtling toward 2020.

This year and next frame an important cycle for me, the third in a sequence.

Red Pill or Blue Pill?

During the first cycle (2010-2015), I delivered 15 public talks and shared 126 “epiphanies,” which I organized into 5 books, consisting of 633 pages, 125,759 words and 209 images.

The second cycle (2016-2018) was a period of consolidation, culmination and roll-out, in which I wove those 5 books into a single all-inclusive volume, "Wyrds of Power: New Language for A New Reality" and also wrote and published "I, the Dragon: Chronicles of An Epic Life Among the Humans" Part autobiographical novel, part world history, "Dragon" tells the story of my six decade journey into and through the Mysterium. Both "Wyrds" and "Dragon" are now available via Amazon.com.

"Dragon" can be purchased in either black and white or full color editions.

These are important works. Maybe the future will validate my boast, maybe it won't. But you can avail yourself of this medicine. In the here and now. After all, you have ears to see and eyes to hear. You are engaged in an ever deepening awakening into your own primal reality. You are willing to bear witness to the naked truth of our circumstances. You feel the arc of human evolution.

Of course, those who just want a better dream should take the other pill.

It's the same choice that Morpheus and the Oracle offered Neo.

Yoga of Primal Reality

In this third cycle (2019 and 2020), I have two major concentrations: 1) Continuing to promote "Wyrds" and "Dragon" and 2) Leading "Dragon Medicine: The Yoga of Primal Reality" -- a monthly two-hour yoga and meditation practice in a sacred, legendary venue in downtown San Francisco.

It's free, but it's invitation only, because the space is limited to eleven mats.

This practice is an intimate journey into Meditation, Breath, Sound, Yoga (Hatha Flow and Yin), Self-Healing Energy Work and Occult Philosophy. Ours is a time of great crisis and peril in the nation and on the planet. In such times, genuine, life-affirming self-care is itself a potent rEvolutionary act.

In sharing deep practices, in authentic presence with each other, we not only heal and nourish ourselves for the road ahead, we also create an etheric bubble in which powerful beneficent energies are generated. "Bodhicitta, Bodhicitta, Bodhicitta ..." These energies are, in turn, utilized by those unseen beings dedicated to holding this world together.

If you're interested, message me either via Facebook or Instagram.

Meanwhile ...

The hub of my online presence is http://wordsofpower.earth.

The three most recent posts are of particular import:

In "Pull Yourselves Together. Seven Imperatives As We Enter the 2020 Vortex," I offer perspective on the harrowing gauntlet from where we are to election day (i.e., judgment day): November 3rd, 2020.

"Pull Yourselves Together" articulates seven rEvolutionary imperatives for those leaning forward:
  1. How This All Came to Be
  2. Mueller's Mission
  3. Freeing the White House
  4. Freeing the Senate
  5. Who We Really Are
  6. The Bitterest Lesson
  7. The Inner Challenge
"This Eden Does Not Tolerate Cowards -- A Personal/Universal Review of Richard Power’s 'I, THE DRAGON' (NSFW)" is an in-depth analysis written by gifted poet and philosopher Emily Shurr.

Emily's essay is in itself a work of brilliance.

"Dragon Bone Broth" was the first of two public talks in 2019 (look for the second in September).

Previewed at the Theosophical Society of San Francisco on 1/18/19, the full version was delivered a month later via Facebook Live on 2/17/19. It is composed of several segments. Each segment could be a talk on its own, or a book on its own. But I just stirred it all into this black pot.

Subsequently, I posted each segment here (including text, PowerPoint slides and embedded videos:

"Dragon Bone Broth: In the Palace of Mirrors"

"Dragon Bone Broth: STDs (Spiritually Transmitted Delusions)"

"Dragon Bone Broth: The Problem of Men (And Some Radical Remedies"

"Dragon Bone Broth: On the Nature of Magic, Magical Beings and the Structure of the Magical World"

And as we move deeper into the Vortex, I will continue to contribute to the collective stream of consciousness 24x7 via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram:

Private Consultation

I am not teaching public classes, and probably won't be, except perhaps for occasional workshops, but I am available for private consultation on yoga and meditation.

If you have a developed yoga practice, but want to deepen your relationship with meditation, or if you have developed meditation practice but want to bring asana and flow into your inner work, AND/OR ESPECIALLY if you are on some path of healing from deep trauma, PTSD, etc., OR you are a creative (e.g., poet, painter, performer, programmer) in need of cultivating a greater well-being and an authentic relationship to the divine in the five bodies, I have some insights to share.

As with the monthly "Yoga of Primal Reality" practice, if you're interested, message me either via Facebook or Instagram.

Sands in the Hourglass

The exact number of sand grains in the hourglass is unknown, all we know is that it is a finite number.  So I take nothing for granted anymore. Not tonight, and certainly not tomorrow. I asked the Universe if She would give me this year and next, and I simultaneously declared to the three worlds that I would take this year and next. Lean forward from within the Vortex, and the Vortex moves with you.
