What a delightful new Log! And these people: here they are---suddenly...direct from a Chuckawalla Fest in Yucca Valley. Yucca Chuckawalla. I love saying that! It falls trippingly from the tongue. Welcome to the Logs, my day is set for sure (Yucca Chuckawalla) and what will they bring us tomorrow?

Regarding Thomas and Amara Alban's comments that Mentalphysics was a "big, big cult" in the 20's thru the 70's -- enlightenment by mail order as I understand it" those who do not know about the teachings of Mentalphysics should not attempt to make assumptions. If these are "cult teachings", then so are meditation and yoga, core teachings of Mentalphysics.
Dingle, a very successful publisher, studied and worked in China for 21 years and in Tibet early in the 1900s. (see mentalphysics.org website) The breathwork techniques he brought back from a monestary in Tibet are designed to open the consciousness, clear the body's energy centers and reconnect the practitioner with their Higher Self.
A friend of Earnest Holmes, founder of Religious Science and Paramahansa Yogananda, founder of Self-Realization Fellowship, Dingle used mail order lessons written in 1927 to start students with consciousness development techniques based on breathing techniques. Students were then expected to come to at least one Convention retreat to fine-tune the practices and expand their understanding of their spiritual development. Our sister center in India teaches these techniques to 10,000 people a year.
The lessons are still being taught, and the Institute of Mentalphsyics and its teachings The Science of Mentalphysics have NEVER BEEN A CULT. I have used these teachings since 1968 and now teach at the Institute of Mentalphysics.

I suppose before using such a potentially volatile word, I should consider how my meaning might be misconstrued. I assure you, I meant it in the most basic way ... cult as in short for culture. It is my understanding that the teachings, in the first few decades at least, were highly secretive and required initiation. Perhaps just a matter of semantics and in any case, no disrespect was intended. Thank you for contributing and enlightening us! --A
