Just returned from "mini tensegrity workshop" at Phoenix Book Store in Santa Monica. The three "Chac Mools" who conducted the workshop were thorough, intense, sincere, warm, and totally professional. The particular movements taught, though not complicated, have to be seen. It would serve no useful purpose to try and describe them.
It is interesting that there were emails tonight concerning institutionalism, however. The Chac Mools were dressed all alike, a type of uniform reminiscent of a Mexican National Church Orginization that bags on the downtown street corners here in Las Vegas. Was also informed that there will be three months long workshops on breathing technics given throughout the country starting in the L.A. area very soon.
Am keeping an open mind knowing that trickery and deception is inherent in the Nagualism philosophy. This "coming out of the closet" so to speak could be either a ploy to find a few new recruits or it could be the start down that slippery road of institutionalism. I prefer to think its a ploy. Either way. I'm in for the ride!
