Carlos Castaneda's Magical Passes
Dreaming-Awake: Listening to the Seer Within
Tensegrity Workshop Series
New York City, April 15, 2000
Barcelona, June 9, 10, 11, 2000
Dreaming is an art, discovered by seers of ancient Mexico, in which we suspend our ordinary interpretations, allowing a new way of responding to the world around us. Don Juan Matus, cultural heir to those seers, told his four students-Carlos Castaneda, Taisha Abelar, Florinda Donner-Grau and Carol Tiggs-that dreaming can take place whether one is sleeping or awake.
To dream, he said, is to perceive more than we believe is possible to perceive, and to act in ways that are beyond our usual capabilities.
The dreaming attention, he maintained, is forged by in our waking hours, by intending a new sense of purpose and awe in our thoughts and actions-the hallmark of what seers call heightened awareness, or dreaming-awake.
Dreaming, and dreaming-awake, he said, are not learned; they are intended, meaning that they are accomplished by awakening our natural link with the vibratory force of intelligence in the universe that seers call the active side of infinity, or intent.
In these workshops, apprentices of Carlos Castaneda, Taisha Abelar, Florinda Donner-Grau and Carol Tiggs will guide participants to perform activities that enhance our awareness of the intent that drives our actions, and to practice magical passes that reawaken our link with the vibratory force of intent through the vibration of sound.
Magical passes are bodily movements, positions and breaths discovered in dreaming by the seers of ancient Mexico, and practiced for their remarkable effect on vigor, well-being and awareness. The modern version of these movements is called Tensegrity: a combination of tension and integrity, the driving forces of the magical passes, and of dreaming. Tension, in the case of dreaming, refers to the intense concentration and purpose, as well as the acquiescence, that it requires. Integrity is allowing the intent of infinity to permeate all of one's actions.
The magical passes, don Juan told his students, can bring the mood of dreaming into our daily actions, and the energy to listen to the vibration of intent itself--what the dreamers of ancient Mexico called the voice of the seer within.
