NCF Newsletter Winter 2014

As we gallop into the Year of the Horse, many of us are notic­ing that the pace of change is accel­er­at­ing. Whether we live in the East or the West, our world seems to be shrink­ing, and the plan­e­tary chal­lenges faced by the entire human race seem to be increas­ing in inten­sity. Welcome to the age of Phoenix Rising! For those of us who enjoy soar­ing the Phoenix Rising currents with Miao, the good news is that fresh oppor­tu­ni­ties for profound and play­ful trans­for­ma­tion are right around the corner.

On Febru­ary 22, and March 1, Miao will lead two precious work­shops at Loyola Mary­mount Univer­sity (LMU).

Both of these work­shops are open to the general public as well as the LMU student body, which includes Masters candi­dates and under­grads devoted to the study of Yoga. The work­shops offer a special oppor­tu­nity to expe­ri­ence the inten­sity of Miao’s teach­ings at a deeper, more advanced level. Because LMU is a pres­ti­gious insti­tu­tion with a dedi­cated Yoga Stud­ies program, Miao intends to up the “ante” in what and how she teaches, to empower and trans­mit to all atten­dees the direct expe­ri­ence of Yoga’s true purpose–which is of course, enlight­en­ment. While the work­shops are not being billed as “inten­sives” they will undoubt­edly be deeply pene­trat­ing.

Every work­shop with Miao opens the sacred portal through which Kundalini Dragon energy and Phoenix Shakti energy can unite; Guan Yin’s energy fans the flames of our own unique rebirth into higher aware­ness and augments our capac­ity to love. Expe­ri­enc­ing rebirth is differ­ent for each of us. It may entail a dramatic shift in perspec­tive, invig­o­rate our sense of free­dom, or help us heal painful emotions and phys­i­cal condi­tions. It may spon­ta­neously unleash feel­ings and percep­tions that we’ve never expe­ri­enced before. Or it may simply engen­der an unprece­dented state of thun­der­ous still­ness. What­ever form our ener­getic rebirth takes, it’s a precious expe­ri­ence deeply cher­ished by those of us who aspire to soar among the high­est realms of conscious­ness.

The Phoenix is a myth­i­cal bird which has long symbol­ized our poten­tial for rebirth and renewal from suffer­ing and chal­leng­ing expe­ri­ences. Phoenix Rising energy enables us to tran­scend our limited human concepts and attach­ments to a three-dimen­sional world. When the Phoenix energy rises within us, we can directly expe­ri­ence the Infi­nite in daily life.
Infi­nite possi­bil­i­ties. Infi­nite bliss. Infi­nite peace. Infi­nite beauty.
Ya la suo!
