Major thing about the basic Silva
now is that it's covered in 2 days. Terrible
We went non-stop for 10+ hrs. Noone could even ask a question b/c we did the 4 days in only 2 and i think the 4 days was what originally was the week.
I called them and wrote to them that they are doing themselves a disservice to cram it all in in only 2 days. And what use is the free refresher course when it'll just be another workshop of cramming in the techniques?
The Silva people are very laid back. Laredo is still a very laid back country type of place. They take off when it suits them. But they are sincere and caring, just not high pressure competition type of 24/7.
How very cool to find that Silva book like that. Same thing happened to me. So there's definitely some synchronicity involved w/ the old man Silva. He's hanging out helping us along.
I purchased Dream Gates the tape set. I'm glad i did b/c i wanted to connect w/ his voice as well as content. I may buy the book conscious dreaming, but i'll PhR it first to see if there's much more info. His conscious dreaming is just intuition to me but from an ancient setting, i.e., the shaman setting. I am now on tape 5 of 6 and find it very interesting. But, i've been a dreamer and lucid dreamer for a long time now. I think i'm really more along the lines of shamanistic dreaming though. But, i've also studied Jung for 35 years now & i like how Moss correlates archetypes to spirit figures. Very good connection; same concepts only different vocabulary.
I want to get the Emery book PowerHunch that mgrego mentioned. And, i'm trying to get the tape set for N. Rosanoff's book, Intuition Workout. Then that's it till i assmimlate this stuff.
good luck to us all--as he says in Dream Gates: May we come together in a sacred and loving way. May we honor the wisdom of dreams. May we seek to align ourselves w/ our higher self. May we honor our ancestors and defend the earth. May we walk the path of soul and spirit in this lifetime. May we be true to ourselves and to what we may become. May it be so This is the essence of his philosophy. Love all; Serve all. Or as Chunyi Lin says: I am in the universe. The universe is in me. The universe and i combine together.
