PostBourgie PostBourgie is a running, semi-orderly conversation about race and gender and class and politics and media and whatever else we can think of. It represents the views of its authors and not those of their respective employers or organizations with which they are affiliated. Holler: Facebook [1] Twitter [2] +[3].

I’m not sure what prompted it, really. DVD, Otherworld: Places of Initiation and Living Resurrection by Freddy SIlva What if... the concept of resurrection handed down to us is false? that it was once a level of initiation performed in secret Mysteries schools around the world, thousands of years before Christ?

On Taking Pictures #186: Little Blips of Satisfaction November 17, 2015 at 11:00AM • 1 hour 22 minutes This week, we begin with a warm thank you to everyone who made it out to the DC meetup. It was really terrific to get to meet you all and we will definitely be doing more of these. The big discussion centers around a question from a listener who asked whether talking so much affects the doing—and both the quality and quantity of what we actually are able to ship.

That goal is presented as not solely a social and political process, but one requiring individuals to develop an awareness of the basic goodness and inherent dignity of themselves, of others, and of the everyday details of the world around them. This is facilitated by cultivating gentleness and bravery.[5]

Tonglen - Taking and Sending Meditation, Thrangu Rinpoche TongLen is a meditation done in conjunction with one's breathing, and in relation to one's parents, friends and enemies, to all beings gathered around oneself. As one breathes out, imagine that with the exhalation out goes all one's happiness and all the causes of happiness, all the good karma that one has, in the form of white light rays. These light rays go out to all beings to touch them, so that they obtain present temporary happiness and the cause for the ultimate happiness of buddhahood. With inhalation one imagines that all the suffering, the causes of suffering and the bad karma that beings have are drawn into oneself with the incoming breath, in the form of black light rays. These black rays enter and merge into oneself, so one thinks that one has taken on the suffering of all other beings. Thus this Sending & Taking meditation involves giving away happiness and taking on suffering, in combination with one's breathing.

5 Tibetans Energy Rejuvenation Exercises We've been practicing, teaching and recommending the 5 Tibetan Energy Rejuvenation Exercises since 1998. You can do the whole routine in 15 minutes and only need enough floor space for your body while laying down and enough air space for your arms to be outstretched. The 5 Tibetans represent a great way to keep your body in shape when you have limited time for a physical workout or limited space for a complete yoga routine. You can easily do the exercises in the space at the foot of the bed in most hotel rooms. We use the 5 Tibetans as a warm up for our morning yoga or body workout. How do I begin to benefit from the 5 Tibetans?
