Ephemeral Mists "Moon Ritual"
is a new musical project by composer Brett Branning
(also the composer for The synthetic dream foundation & Abandoned Toys). "Moon Ritual" is the debut cd, out now on Mythical records
The sound of the project is best described as downtempo ambient new age music mixed with ethnic world musics in the vein of "Karma" era Delerium, Amethystium, and Dead Can Dance. Its really a an incredibly beautiful creation to be used as yoga music or Reiki music
. and I sincerely recommend it to anyone into newage music styles. I'm looking forward to further releases by this project.

Oil Pulling For Your Health
Indian medicine, Ayurveda, has long hailed the practice of oil pulling for healing the human body. Many illnesses and diseases can be prevented and potentially cured with this method. The concept of oil pulling is not new. It has been discussed in the Ayurvedic text Charak Samhita ( Sutrasthana 5, 78-80) as kavalagraha or kavala gandoosha. It was Dr. F. Karach, M.D. who popularized the concept of oil pulling in the 1990s.
Dr. Karach presented a paper before the All-Ukrainian Association. The meeting was attended by oncologists and bacteriologists belonging to the Academy of Science of the USSR. Dr. Karach explained an unusual simple healing process using cold-pressed oils. In this paper, Karach said the oil pulling totally heals “head-aches, bronchitis, tooth pain, thrombosis, eczema, ulcers and diseases of stomach, intestines, heart, blood, kidney, liver, lungs and women’s diseases. It heals diseases of nerves, paralysis, and encephalitis. It prevents the growth of malignant tumors, cuts and heals them. Chronic sleeplessness is cured.” He warned that if these claims sound exaggerated, try out the process yourself.
First thing in the morning, before eating, before brushing your teeth, take 1 teaspoon of refined or expeller pressed sesame oil (NOT toasted sesame oil) into your mouth and DO NOT swallow during this process. You swish the oil in your mouth, tiling your head back so that it can get to the back molars. You suck and pull the oil through your teeth and chew the oil so that it activates the saliva. You do this for 10 -15 minutes (at least 10 min). The oil will turn white in your mouth as you do this. If it is still yellow after the 10 min, then you are not swishing and pulling and chewing enough.
Spit the oil out in the toilet. Again, DO NOT swallow the oil. If you were to see one drop of this oil magnified 600 times under a microscope, you would see microbes in their first stage of development. The oil pulls toxins and excess Kapha (mucus) out of the blood through the mucus membranes in the mouth.
After spitting, swish your mouth with a pinch of salt and warm water. And then immediately brush your teeth thoroughly, making sure to brush your tongue and the roof of the mouth too.
One of the obvious first results is the fixing of loosened teeth, the stoppage of bleeding gums, and the whitening of the teeth. Other healing indications: fresh, relaxed feeling on waking up, disappearing dark circles and puffiness below the eyes, renewed appetite, increased energy, better memory, and deep sleep.
Dr. Karach says that man lives to be only half the age which he could be. He says men and women can live easily up to 150 years old.
A study done by the Meenakshi Ammal Dental College & Hospital in Chennai, India is as follows:
1. Significant reduction in S.mutans count in oil group after 1 and 2 weeks (p = 0.01; 0.008 respectively) and in chlorhexidine group in all time periods (p = 0.01; 0.04; 0.005; 0.005)
2. Significant difference in S.mutans count between the two groups after 1 and 2 weeks (p = 0.02; 0.002 respectively)
1. Significant reduction in plaque and modified gingival index scores in both study and control group (p = 0 in both groups)
2. Reduction in colony count of microorganisms in plaque sample from both groups.
Conclusion: Oil pulling therapy, 5 to 6 times cost effective than chlorhexidine, can be used as an effective preventive home therapy in maintaining and improving oral health especially in developing countries like India.
(A. SHARATH, J. JEEVARATHAN, M.S. MUTHU, V. RATHNAPRABHU, E. PAMELA, R. RAGHURAMAN, and G.S. CHAMUNDESWARI, Meenakshi Ammal Dental College & Hospital, Chennai, India; Efficacy of Oil Pulling on Oral Health Status; http://iadr.confex.com/iadr/2008Toronto/techprogram/abstract_105440.htm)
A paper in India reported results of an oil pulling survey:
In 1996, after continuous publication of a regular column for three years in their Sunday edition on OP, Andhra Jyoti, a Telugu daily news paper, conducted a survey to find out the types of diseases cured and the effectiveness of OP. Out of a total of 1041 respondents, 927 (89%) reported cure of one or more diseases. People who did not report any cure were 114(11%).The analysis indicated cure of the following types of chronic diseases:
Pains in the body and problems pertaining to neck and above 758 cases
Allergy and respiratory problems of lungs like asthma, bronchitis etc191 cases
Skin problems like pigmentation, itching, scars, black patches, and eczema etc 171 cases
Digestive system-155 cases
Arthritis and joint pains-91 cases
Heart disease and B.P-74 cases
Diseases pertaining to female reproductive system reported by women-21 cases
Diseases like Polio, Cancer, Leprosy, polycystic kidney, neural fibroma, paralysis etc -72 cases
(a) Do not swallow. The oil should be spat out. But inadvertently if you swallow a little bit there is nothing to worry. It will go out through feces. Nothing is to be done.
(b) If you are allergic to sesame oil, change the brand of oil.
(c) Sunflower and sesame oil have been found to be equally effective in curing diseases. Other oils were not found to be as good. Do not blame oil pulling by practicing with other oils. Use refined oils.
It is said that oil pulling helps to massage the internal organs as all our internal organs are mapped out in our mouth. It also pulls toxins out of the blood. It dissolves plaque and bacteria from the teeth.
Dr. Karach, in his article, reports that in terminal diseases such as cancer, Aids and chronic infections, oil pulling has been shown to successfully replace all others. Dr. Karach has successfully healed a chronic leukemia patient with 15 years of harsh treatment methods behind him and healed acute arthritis within three days in one patient who was totally bedridden.

London Festival of Tantra
I thought you might like to know about a rather special forthcoming Tantric event in the UK...
The London Festival of Tantra will be held at Chelsea Old Town Hall (Kings Road, London SW3 5EE, UK) on 27 September 2008, 10:00 - 23:00. Tickets: £50 in advance.
Created by tantrika, author and community activist Bernadette Vallely, this one-day festival is the most important celebration of the Tantra spiritual movement in Britain since the 1970s. It features an unprecedented international line-up of speakers who will address the festival's theme "What is Tantra?" from many perspectives.
These inspiring personalities will discuss the use of Tantra as an intellectual and practical tool to achieve sexual healing, personal and spiritual empowerment, and self liberation. They include: Mark Michaels and Patricia Johnson, recently voted best sex educators in the US; Angela Hassan PhD, one of the world's leading Vajrayana Tibetan tantra experts; Rafa and Chelsea Zabala, inspiring Kriya Yoga practitioners; plus teachers representing many of the main tantra schools from the UK.
As well as feeding the mind, the festival will also enable you to experience "Tantra in Action" through practical demonstrations and participatory events involving meditation, yoga and ecstatic dancing led by leading experts. There will also be exciting musical events by Ravi and Orchid Star, and a demonstration of priestess belly dancing.
Throughout the day there will be exhibitions of artwork, photography, Buddhist Thankga and Sculptures from Nepal, Body Painting and Adornment. Various practitioners will also offer massage and healing, colour and beauty therapies and fakir magic. A range of stalls and stands will offer for sale arts & crafts, books & information.

3 Types Of Espresso Coffee Machines
There are a number of different espresso coffee machines that you can buy today. These include the manual, semi automatic and the full or super automatic. Below I will be taking a closer look at just what each of these machines are capable of doing.
1. Manual Espresso Coffee Machine
This type of machine requires the person using it to carry out all the various procedures involved in order to brew a great cup of espresso coffee. You will need to add both the water and the coffee grinds as well as controlling the frother if you are making cappuccinos or lattes.
2. Semi Automatic Espresso Coffee Machine
With this particular machine you will need to start the process by turning the machine on and then pressing a button. Then once the espresso has been made, you will then need to turn the machine off. However with this machine you will be required to ensure that they water reservoir is filled and that there is sufficient beans within the grinder (as some models come with an internal coffee grinder).
3. Full or Super Automatic Espresso Coffee Machine
This machine will produce a great espresso coffee without you having to participate in the process at all. These types of machines come with a fully integrated water system (which is attached directly to a water supply) and a coffee grinder for grinding the beans. With this particular machine all you need to do now is push a button and then the machine takes over and at the end will produce a great cup of espresso coffee. During each process, once the beans have been ground and used they will then be ejected and placed in an internal bin which can then be taken out and the contents removed.
When it comes time for you to find the perfect espresso coffee machine, you will need to determine just how convenient you want it to be. So if you are someone who wants to be involved in every process of making your own great cups of coffee, then the manual espresso coffee machine is the ideal choice for you.
However if you are someone who just wants to sit back and relax before they start drinking a great cup of coffee then the semi or super automatic espresso coffee machines may be your preferred choice. Also you will need to take into consideration the cost, unfortunately both the semi and super automatic machines can be quite expensive, plus they are quite large as well so may take up more space than you have available.
A great way of learning more about these various types of espresso coffee machines is by going online. There are lots of sites that can offer you reviews as well as offering great discounts on some of the more well known brands available today.

Do you guys know any good kriyas for burning karma? Or know of any books you've come across that discusses this specific issue? I have a lot of Kundalini books, but I can't find any that have kriyas for burning karma.

Have any of you gotten your teaching certification in Kundalini Yoga? Tell me about your experience--and where you got your certification. The only place I can find is in New Mexico--which is fine with me, but is it the only one? Are you teaching now? Tell me about your experience with that as well. I'm thinking of becoming certified, but I want it to be worth it.

I dug a deep pit, and buried my egotistical pride, emotional attachment and the desires of my mind. ||1||Pause||
Emotional Attachment, Ego (Scary isn't it? Just look at those chompers. The scariest thing is that he/she probably doesn't even know how ugly their ego is!!!)
And here we see the ego being buried in sand. Ahh, much better. I have conquered my desire.
The other night after Cranio Sacral training I was so energized that I decided to come up with a song for NOVA Idol, www.novaidol.com, and ended up dressing up as a witch and dancing around the house singing Loreena McKennitt songs until 12am. Didn't get much sleep last night either...two more days of training....will it ever end? Current Mood: awake

I missed a lot because the camera really wasn't on my mind most of the time. Every once in a while I remembered it was in my backpack and whipped it out. The last few days I was in such a happy daze that I forgot that I had it with me!
There are more photos on the 3ho newsletter: http://www.3ho.org/enewsletter/e-news01-01-08.html
This week I am taking the first level of Craniosacral Therapy training from the Upledger Institute. It's 9-5 Thurs through Sunday. I love the technique and going more deeply into it is quite transformative. It's also great to receive so much free body work and meet other therapists in the area.
Also this week, the GuruSangats and I are learning a new shabad.
On the down side I received my first C ever in advanced keyboard techniques. Admittedly I never practiced, and still did alright, but it appears that the teacher is on to me. I've decided to suck it up and start regular practice once again! Current Mood: amused

It's been a few days since White Tantric and I've decided to eat a cleansing diet accompanied by a meditation for 40 days to keep this wonderful clarity with me as long as possible and also to keep opening and growing.
Last year I decided to try and attend one White Tantric Yoga for each season. Of course there is Summer and Winter Solstice, and we host one here in the fall, so for the spring I was thinking of going to New York. It should be great. To find out more about it and see if there are any in your area: www.whitetantricyoga.com.
It seems that I am not the only one who is benefiting from this shift in consciousness. Everyone around me seems more friendly and happy. Maybe it's just all the junk I let go of, but I am very much enjoying the change.
I'm making a recipe from the Golden Temple Cook Book right now, it smells so yummy! Mung beans and mustard greens....yum. Oh yes, and more yogi tea. :)
The pictures are being developed and should be ready by Friday, I'm as anxious as you are to see what turns out..!
Love, Current Mood: cheerful

Мысли материальны, друзья мои..........
Убеждаюсь сам уже не в первый раз...........
Не вспомню, по поводу чего, но, ёмоё - меньше недели назад обсуждал с коллегой какой-то случай именно на эту тему..
Теперь.. В общем, в одном из предыдущих постов для всеобщего обозрения открыл свой свеженький стих........... Посвытил его своей коллеге - уж очень, всё же, она мне, НРА..
Так вот, случилось, в общем, ей приболеть..
Я, как опвтно практикующий йог начал, соответственно, делать практики сильные, по посылу энергии, там, и, в частности, её обменом.........
И что Вы думаете - в офисе, на другой работе, сидела за мной во время семинара какая-то не очень лицеприятная особа Жпола.. Как я её не пытался отсиморонить - нифига..((((((((
В общем, пипка в том, что кашляля она там сзади всю дорогу.
Я обычно к таким провокациям на своё здоровье отношусь достаточно спокойно.. Но тут. Стал буквально отключаться.. Может, сказалась усталость за ночную смену (работаю на радио звукорежиссёром)..
В общем вот........
Так о главном: прихожу я, в общем, сегодня на работу, ОНА - здорова-здоровёхонька, ну, по крайней мере, ЕЙ стало намного легче..
Ая вот, сижу, и глаза мои слезятся, башку, кости ломит - ну, в общем, все симптомы налицо.......
Быть может, судя по признакам,ОНА и есть "ТА_САМАЯ" половина?.)))))))))))))))))))))

Kundalini and Ten Body Yoga; The Heart and Circulatory System
Some insight into the positive effects of Kundalini and Ten Body Yoga on the heart and curculation…. Practicing both Kundalini and Ten Body Yoga works to balance your blood pressure and also increases your bodies oxygen supply. It also reduces weight through sweating. Another advantage is that it strengthens your heart muscles and increases the amount of small active blood vessels. Also, practicing these forms causes the consistency of the blood to become thinner thus helping to prevent heart attacks and strokes. Some beneficial exercises for your heart and circulation include: twisting exercises, all exercises with the arms (especially at a 60 or 90 degree angle), all upside-down exercises (causes blood to flow back), exercises with the diaphragm (Breath of Fire), exercises with the yogic locks (such as root lock) and also jogging to increase circulation.
