Katannabis – The Mandala Effect, a little fun

25 Jul

Journal Entry # : The Mandala-Effect: A Bit of Fun

I’ve been deeply exploring and documenting a very intense aspect of Katannabis Ritual Meditation, the entheogenic combination of my Kata-Rx For Wellness and cannabis. I call this aspect the “Mandala-Effect” of Katannabis. I first discovered the mandala-effect several decades ago while practicing the Kata on the sands of Cape Cod Bay. That fun little story is for another day.

The intense nature of the mandala-effect dictates that I selectively and slowly release information on not only its nature but how to experience it. It is has peril and is not for the intermediate practitioner of Katannabis and certainly far too dangerous for the novice.

Having said that, while my exploration of this topic is often serious, it does have its lighter moments. One such moment came during a Katannabis session exploring the “mandala of the hands” in Suparunpei Kata. I tried to visualize the three dimension aspect of these mandala and was having difficulty. While meditating on the topic, it came to me. I put my idea to work and using video, my visualization problem was solved.

I continue documenting my research.  I currently have over fifty pages on the Mandala-effect, and over 250 pages on Katannabis in general. For now, I’m releasing it slowly and safely. One step at a time. I don’t think anyone is at the stage where they can safely delve into the more intense and profound aspects of Katannabis ritual meditation. The rewards are great, but there is danger that only an adept can safely navigate.  In her book Psychic Self-Defense, Dion Fortune, the nome d’plume for Violet Mary Firth, faced a similar conundrum, “To disclose sufficient to be adequate without disclosing sufficient to be dangerous.” (E-Book, Chapter 1). That is my current conundrum. I reflect deeply before disclosing aspects of Katannabis.

You can start in the “shallow end of the pool” of Katannabis ritual meditation for FREE using this safe, convenient link to my online school: https://kata-rx.teachable.com/p/preview-kata-as-moving-meditation The course is FREE! 

How far you want to explore its depths is upto you. I am reminded of the words of Casey Hardison, “The cartography of the Inner Soul is nothing to be afraid of.”   (Casey Hardison – Hamilton’s Pharmacopeia S1 E6: The Lazy Lizard School Of Hedonism).
