The Jaguar of the Maya-Toltecs

On Saturday August 24, from 7:00am to 10:00am PST is the First Annual Global Practice!

The Practice Project

This will be an Annual Gathering from all Practice Groups around the globe, to celebrate each other for their efforts and energy over the first year of the Joining Forces project of practices, to intermingle, create new relationships and support each other for the next year practice.
We help each other to have purpose and a sustained practice
We move towards freedom joining forces, side by side, and internationally
The Global Practice will take place via Zoom, from 16:00 to 19:00hrs CET of the third day of the Live Retreat in Slovenia, for those who can’t make it physically.
It will just like the group’s Seasonal Practices, but of double duration, and one same practice for all groups at the same time.
PLUS ANYONE ELSE YOU WANT TO INVITE!
Help support the Practices by inviting people from your network to come and experience the movements and the energy.
This is a unique opportunity!
Practice Groups of Mexico, USA, Russia, Bulgaria, Brazil, Argentina, Europe English, French, Spanish, Italian and German.

EACH Practice Group will work together to create their Signature Sequence for Dreaming and Jaguar Form, their unique arrangements, such as “The Jaguar of the Maya-Toltecs French Group, The Sequence for Dreaming French Group or The Jaguar of the Maya-Toltecs Brazil Group, The Sequence for Dreaming Brazil Group,
Each group can practice and develop their form over the next three months and include it in their regular practices.
In August 2024, when we hold the first Global Practice, each Practice Group will present and share their respective Forms, so we all get to practice all the different variations.

The Sequence for Dreaming

An Advanced Practice for seasoned and beginners alike

The Fluidity of the Assemblage Point

For the men and women shamans in ancient Mexico, every one of their practices was aimed at arriving to a state of fluidity, in terms of perception. Fluidity of perception meant, for them, the natural capacity that we have as human beings, of moving in new directions, conceiving new possibilities, and engaging new actions, which lead them to a greater definition of oneself, uplifting and empowering.
The act of entering into the new, in all its forms, they called dreaming, and the internal state that allows us to do dreaming they called fluidity.
Arranging your own Sequence for Dreaming is akin to preparing your vehicle for the ride. Entering into the right state, the right feeling—i.e fluidity, so you can dream.
For the particular aim of the Global Practice, we are exploring the dream of “becoming jaguarized”. But the Sequence for Dreaming can set you the tone for any dreaming endeavor you choose.

The Sequence for Dreaming aims at two things:

To bring a state of fluidity
to the Assemblage Point (AP)

Creating fluidity in 3 ways:

  1. A horizontal gliding of the shoulder blades over the ribs
  2. A continuous rhythm and flow of the shoulder blades
  3. A activation of the vital centers by turning the oblique muscles

To stalk perception
to be focused and clear in any new position of the assemblage point (AP)

  1. A pattern of breathing –Continuous even flow pattern
  2. A position of the eyes –No focal view, only peripheral activation
  3. A stance in the legs –Psoas-Earth communication

How to arrange a form

  • A vocabulary of passes –UNITS: 20 passes for Dreaming; 16 energy passes + 4 fillers
  • A sequence combination –Unique each practitioner / time
  • A perceptual focus –Fluidity of perceptiion
  • Instead of being a single set form, in The Sequence for Dreaming there is rather a vocabulary, a set of small components that can then be arranged in sequences with different orders and repetitions. In this context, an arrangement is a unique sequence and number of repetitions of the sets, reflecting individual expressions.
  • Each unit addresses a particular function or aspect of fluidity.
  • Each Practice Group worldwide develops its own arrangement, its own form, by individual members of each group practicing, exploring the units and creating their unique sequence.
  • Individual practitioners’ sequences will be shown and shared throughout the next Seasonal Practices, and each group will finally choose one version to present at the Global Practice in August.

The Jaguar Form

The jaguar is one of the most consequential figures in Mesoamerica culture, the ruler of the underworld, the spirit of light and darkness, the Sun of the night. For shamans, the jaguar brings a specific kind of energy to those who align with it: courage, valor and the confidence to seek and confront that which is in the darkness, that cannot or would not be seen, including one’s fears and one’s enemies. The jaguar represents power and ferocity. The jaguar has night vision and can see depth in the dark. Being a jaguar can also mean accessing higher functions of our brain, including insight and foresight.

How to arrange a form

  1. there is a pattern of breathing to follow,
  2. a specific mood to enter,
  3. a technique for how to engage the hands as claws,
  4. a set of wheels’ strikes
  5. a collection of blocks of energy passes; blocks can be combined in any order and number of repetitions so that the end result is a form always fresh, unique, and in motion.
  6. Any given Form, any given arrangement (sequence) can also include any of the sounds in combination with any of the movements.

Further Guidelines for Creating a Jaguar Form

  • Instead of being a single set form, in The Jaguar Form there is rather a vocabulary, a set of small components that can then be arranged in sequences with different orders and repetitions.
  • Each set functions as a unit of perception, from the realm of the jaguar. In this context, an arrangement is a unique sequence and number of repetitions of the sets, reflecting individual expressions.
  • Each Practice Group worldwide develops its own arrangement, its own form, by individual members of each group practicing, exploring the units and creating their unique sequence.
  • Individual practitioners’ sequences will be shown and shared throughout the next Seasonal Practices, and each group will finally choose one version to present at the Global Practice in August.

In this form, a warrior becomes “Jaguarized” It is not that the warrior leaves the human to become a jaguar; rather, the human pulls in the jaguar, he incorporates the energies and attributes of the jaguar into the human.

A Specific Mood to Enter 

A Pattern of Breathing 

Engaging the Hands as Claws 

Strikes & Blocks

Setting the Mood of the Jaguar

  1. Jaguar breaths (low in throat and belly). Generating respiratory alkalosis
  2. Jaguar sounds (panting & growling). Activating Intent
  3. Jaguar wheels (moving energy). Proprioception
  4. Jaguar sets
