Celibacy or Imperminance?

Celibacy or Imperminance? Which is easier? Unbeknownst to me I have fallen onto the yogic path of celibacy more than a year ago! This experience has lead me to make some interesting observations which I have decided to share here in this Blog entry today!  Basically for myself I can now understand the focus of Brahamayana or sublimation of sexual energy for spiritual pursuits!  It is not just the energy that dissaptes the moment that an orgasim occurs! ... But rather it is my belief the savings of mental stanima by avoiding the repitious cycle of unaccepted impermanence between couples!  What happens many times is the intimate pleasure between two persons can instill a desire or "greed" to keep this pleasure somehow for ourselves!  Hence why partners become obsessive or jealous which are in my opinion two of the most destructive emotions that corse through the veins of mankind!  Hence it is almost "easier" to avoid the entire subject and.all.of the juxta

The Four Yogic Bandhas : New Class Offered Live or On-Demand @goburnalong

Bandhas in Yoga Practice are used to unblock the free flow of Prana (energy) along the Sushumna Nadi. There are essentially 3 "Psychic Knots" called "Granthis" that can be transcended by the use of Bandhas. >>The first "Granthi" is "Brahama" it is located at the base Chakras Mooladhara & Swadhisthasina. It is linked with the survival instinct, urge to procreate, deep instinctive knowledge, awareness and desire! When the Brahama Granthi is transcended the primal energy = Kundalini can rise above the Chakras and this aids in avoiding attractions and personality. >>The second "Granthi" is "Vishnu" it is associated with the Manipura and Anahata Chakras. The Manipura Chakra is key to the energy, digestion and metabolism in the body. Anahata Chakra is the heart and emotions.  When the Vishnu Granthi is transcended one is no longer bound by physical, mental and emotional attachments.  >>The third

Mudras>>New Meditation Class @goburnalong Wellness Platform

Come and join me Michael Sands for a new class sequence I added at the "Live" & "On-Demand" Wellness Platform BURNALONG ❤️‍πŸ”₯ ❤️‍πŸ”₯ BURNALONG LINK This Class will focus on Hand & Head Mudras (gestures) that can be used during or before meditation and in some cases in unison with Yoga Practices, Asanas / Postures.  A mudra is a sacred and symbolic gesture found in yoga, Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism. The most well-known mudras are used during yoga and meditation practice as a means of channeling the flow of vital life force energy known as prana. The term translates from Sanskrit as "gesture,"’ "mark" or "seal". Each individual mudra has unique symbolism and is thought to have a specific effect on the body and mind by clearing energetic pathways.

Tantric Beginnings

Over 24 years ago in the previous century!! My first foray into the world of Yoga was a very exciting and adrenaline charged spiritual experience!  For purposes of a Yogic CV I generally mention that Power Yoga with Mark.Blanchard in Studio.City was my first yoga experience.  But now that time has passed I look back fondly on the gift of knowledge and life changing experience that crossed my path shortly beforehand!  It was in 1999 in Hollywood that I met a performance artist who helped me delve into the powers that can be shared between two beings with a unified consecration to a higher plane of psyche.  Surprisingly in retrospect the mantras, rituals, mandalas.and thought process behind Tantra I assimilated and enjoyed right from the outset!  Since this brief but impactive year of my life I have only sought out the Yoga Asanas and meditation practices.  As I felt I needed a deeper basis and more fundamental training before reinitiating into Tantric practices and teachings

Material Freedom

A close friend of mine Leslie once said to me ..... "I am so happy to be "broke"!! This means I have no money and I feel free!....." This statement to me in its moment that I heard it over 20 years ago I grasped mildly and understood.  But now with passing of time and life experience I herald this observation as being a Sage Truth!   We enter this world with nothing...we leave this physical body with nothing.... So to go through life in the same state with objectives beyond the material such as teaching, coexistence in harmony and spiritual objectives are actually attainable ideals.  One just has to be open to the possibilities and choose to avoid the illusions of material pursuits.  An object or item precious to us or others is not capable of taking us beyond a momentary lustre of contentment.  Knowing oneself and finding inner happines with one's connectedness and coexistence with the universe requires no currency just a beautiful internal journey.
