Why do I want to learn Lo Ban Pai?

Hhhhmmmm…and what do I seek to achieve?

My life journey has been interwoven with the shamanic and Internal Arts. I have seen and recognize the Nagual Lujan Matus from dreaming. My path has refined and refined again and continues refining. Sifting. Shifting. I feel myself shedding more and more layers.

Any quest or journey towards power calls for a deep and humble faith. I am a bit of a maverick, even within the strict confines of a specific martial arts lineage.

The intent I set for myself was to study and learn with the Nagual Lujan Matus…in confluency. Confluency is a word I find arising within my practice and life. From the Latin, ‘Confluere’, ‘to flow’. I see it as a point where two paths meet and flow together.

My work is in the energetic realm, I practice as an acupuncturist and healer. I teach Tai Chi and Qi Gong. I work with youth, here in Africa. Youth at risk and disadvantaged youth. Rural communities. I feel that as my consciousness expands and as I grow, I continue becoming a stiller point from which I can extend outwardly to all those I play and work with here, now in this town I live in, and to shift the density of the energetic system. Africa, South Africa at present is in a state of transition. Our whole world is.

What have I learned from Lujan?

The resonance that I feel, that I have a connection with a group and teacher, whom on this level I have not met, yet, but that I already know. I read all the books I could lay my hands on on shamanic practices as a (precocious) young child, at twelve I had read most of Castaneda’s books. I began training Internal Arts over twenty years ago.

I find I am drawn to the energetics, the shapes, the multi-dimensional nature of these arts. The sacred geometry. When I ‘found’ reference to Lujan Matus on the internet, I sat and observed the unfolding of the information, what I could absorb, how I felt, and after reading some of his works, I would be deeply honored to learn and flow with the Nagual Lujan Matus. His integrity is clear.

This opportunity is such grace. What do I seek to achieve? A degree of self-mastery.

Personally, I feel I may gain, a deepening of understanding, greater stillness and a heart more open. It will be experiential. My learning daily in the past three years, at home and as a part of my community has been implicitly about boundaries. I have a multitude of occasions to really laugh at my ineptitude. And cry. My work takes me into the realms of pre-heaven or destiny. Why we are who we are. The tools available to us. Cellularly, genetically, and, always at the level of consciousness. Weaving into be-ing in the vastness of infinity. How incredible to be able to share paths and moments.

Initially, the Internal Arts are something you practice. This never stops, one continues to practice. However, over time, their essence seeps into you, permeating every fiber of your being. I am inspired by those masters who have dedicated their lives to their arts. For me, these arts, are vibrantly alive. Constantly evolving. Mutable. Consciousness is present, inherent, and begins to peek out at you if you are awake.
