Fragments: followed kundalini movements, emptied mind several times. Tried to follow chaitanya but couldn’t feel it, so went by kundala. Somewhere end of S1 I started to yawn a lot, then somewhere mid of S2 I got a runny nose. S3 got void swirling for about 2 mins and my fingertips for left nabhi and vishuddhi began to pulsate. Then sensations disappeared. S3 exit 2nd downward dominance – I totally lost my balance.
As I’m writing the report no yawning, no runny nose (?!??)

Hello dear Sifu.
I did have definitely lots of thoughts as waves 🌊.
Wasn’t sure about many moves..
But remembered -not to resist ..
It was challenging, difficult but slowly went, occasionally into not trying and not doing .
And that I enjoyed..:)
Thank you 🙏🏻

I applied the “follow me” method. It was a very relaxing dance. I never thought I can practice feeling so relaxed and so slow. I felt like my hands were holding some energy balls no matter how I moved them. The spine straightened up from time to time, the movements started from the belly, the weight of the body was differently distributed between legs and the gravity centre of the body was positioned differently than usual.
Thank you Sifu for the experience,

What did I feel? At various times – nothing – pain in the lower back – tingling sensation around the torso – energy on my hands.
A fairly common occurrence was pulsing of the movement.
In the first third (by time) of the dance, I mostly felt alignment with your movements, in the middle third the mind started wandering, and in the last third there were a few times when I got ahead of you and waited for you to “catch up”.
Unlike previous times in the dance, I never really felt lost. I was amazed that we went for 1.5h. It didn’t feel that long.
My mind also felt fairly calm. I didn’t beat myself up too much about when I lost alignment with your movement or when my mind wandered.
“Today was a milestone for the group, wasn’t it? The first full Dance across time zones.”

how I felt today while dancing:
in the beginning I felt strong pull down in the area of my lower back, legs and arms as well. And I was twisting, mainly clockwise, a lot while having this feeling of nearly constant strong pulling down (to the earth) and pressure in my head as well (something like when you are a bit deeper under the water).
Slowly came some movement into my arms as my arms were feeling less and less of pulling.
As I sometimes could see you, my thought were that I am not doing the same movements as you at all, and that I don’t mind that. I was more concentrated on my feelings.
I joined you while doing 9 cloud hands and I followed you for a while. The feeling of pulling was gone and my lower back on right started to feel sore and a little bit like having a fire there, in one place.
After that I was less following you and more trying to finish to the end.
About doing 5 cloud hands: I found it tough to continue, still having backpain, feeling sometimes a little bit dizzy and like it is too much. But I did continue to the end.
The pain is now getting slowly better and dizziness as well.
Have a nice day.

Nothing really matters.
From: Andrew Rohowyj
Today in the dance was focused on following.. Sifu, the Way, . As it became automatic my mind started thinking resolving an issue I’ve been struggling with seemed to resolve the problem. Thought about become what you follow, .. of you don’t need to see… Realized I maybe would benefit from copy what you see.. back on the path.
Magda’s match report:
First section 2 – deep, profound path, still unfamiliar but less so than a couple of weeks ago.
Second section 2 – much harder to follow the path due to feeling very tired (yawning a lot), but still enjoyed it.

- “I do not move, therefore I am moved.”
- “Origami “
- “Very slow today. My mind was becoming frustrated but same time just kept moving started wondering what was driving movement. At a point later felt like a canal train but with woolly mammoths instead. Noticed little dogs and funny things around and movement was smooth again unsure where from, neither fast or slow.
Was buzzing a bit towards the end influenced my speed. Then finished.”
- “s1 and s2: Diligently following Sifu’s path that he has shown us, but not able to follow Sifu directly.
s3: Having fun – so much so that I lost count of 7 cloud hands. Still following the path but realizing I can explore the path and reach out beyond my previous limits.
Just had fun.”
