Letter from Belen

Heriogaballus and Kundalini
---Crisis of the Birth of Subbody
 

This article is for midwife course which is connected with a mail from an old student, Belen.

Next year several student of this year will continue to research at Subbody Butoh Institute.

Second year is midwife course to help the safe birth of fetus of subbody and cobody including one's own and other's.

We have to calm down one's own Ego and Self deeper than the creator course of the first year, and listen to subtler signal of the birth of fetus of subbody and cobody.

The birth is always on the edge between life and death.

It is the one of the most critical moment for life.

We need to learn there are so many different patterns of the birth.

A subbody is easy to come out, another one is shy and hesitant to be born. Sometimes there are very difficult birth or near death birth on the edge of miscarriage or still birth. 

In Subbody course, we take time to let various subbodies and cobodies to come out one by one for one year in proper order.

Then slowly we can learn how to become friend with them.

One of the critical type of the birth is sudden emergence.

 

Belen encountered this case and mailed me from Spain;

 

" I witnessed something amazing this weekend. I have a friend who has been meditating a lot these last couple of years, vipassana meditation. Right when the butoh workshop in Tiocan (in Switzerland) started she called me to tell me she had some experience while meditating: her arms had started to move on their own, without her doing it. Then, in July, she was going deeper, and at one point she had light convulsions of the torso. Two days ago we went to nature and spent a lot of time in the water, the river´s ponds. On Saturday morning she started concentrating on the energy and her arms started to move. She did this for 20 minutes, and then it started to become more violent, strong convulsions from her feet to her head, agitating her arms and making her face disfigured..... I was behind her, catching her every time she fell in the water. It was as if something possessed her violently and she could not control it. At one point she started making noises, screaming, and spitting saliva full of phlegm. Her eyes went white, completely. this went on for 3 hours, and then the movement started to be pleasurable, she moved as if dancing, her arms up in the sky.

 

It was the most authentic Butoh i had ever seen. On sunday i spoke to her about Butoh and taught her some conditioning and basic ways to start so she could move this energy in a more controlled way. A friend told her she was experiencing a kundalini rising and had to work with this energy.

 

I felt so attracted to this energy, afraid in a way, because it was monstrous, the way it came out, but very attracted, the attraction pulling forward and the fear pulling back, like i feel right now in my life......."

 

Some of our subbodies are hidden and enduring in the darkness of body for long years with keeping energy. Once they are coming out, the emergence becomes as an explosion with extreme speed and uncontrolled energy.

In the Yoga tradition, it is called as the emergence of Kundalini.

Stanislav Grof who is a transpersonal psychologist had organized the 'SEN (Spiritual Emergence Network) to help people who encounter the difficulty of these cases, since 1980.

Though I don't use the word of 'Spiritual' because it is bound by the archetype unconsciously.  'Spirit' and 'Kudalini' are one of archetype which bind our mind and body from the realm of  the collective unconsciousness. We need to be released from all kinds of archetypes. We understand it as the birth of subbody (subconscious=body) and accept it as natural phenomena of Life. It is the richest source for us. Subbody method is to grow up them safely and open full potential of creativity, originality and resonance ability of Life.   

 

Hijikata called it 'Hiliogabullus' in his butoh score 'Quiet House'.

 

"There is only one moment of Heliogabalus.

Things that endure – It was the other face of dazzling moderation" 

 

Heliogabullus is known as the worst emperor in the Roman Empire.

 

We can understand that 'Kundalini' or 'Heliogaballus' is a case of the sudden birth of subbody with extreme energy and speed.

I have experienced it many times during the construction of the school at Himalaya. I became an obsessive-compulsive neurosis by encountered so many unexpected hardships of the culture gap between Japan and India.

My Heliogaballus was suddenly getting angry and was bound by strong tendency to kill others and myself.  I could not control the emergence at all, because the speed was extreme. When I noticed it, it was late. My body had already been possessed by the extreme anger.

I tried to calm down myself by breathing and various movements, but it didn't work at all.

I could only escape from the too complex circumstances at Himalaya to the jungle and ocean in Kerara and Tamil Nadu of South India, at that time.

 

Also I have met various cases of sudden birth of student's subbody, someone is violent, other one is shouting, crying with uncontrolled energy as if killing others.

But when we accept them by warmest hug with full of Life Resonance, they can be calmed down absolutely. Because the violence is from the illusional archetype which the world image is felt to be opposed against the self image.

 

Through these experiences we learned that we have to establish a method to facilitate the birth of subbody with a safe order and slow tempo, one by one from easier one to harder one. We need to train ourselves how to calm down our condition of body, mind and subbody through various methods of conditioning. Then now we can be a midwife to facilitate the birth of subbodies and cobodies somehow. At the beginning. we learn to become Quiet body, Ash body, Weakened body, and proceed to Proto body, Animal body, Hidden body, Bottom body, Chimera body, Nest body, Possessed body and so on. When we integrate all of them, we can be Transparent body which is not bound by any specific tendencies finally.  It takes time, at least for one year, ideally two or three years.

We need to learn how to stop our Ego and Self, and how to listen to very subtle signal in the darkness of body of oneself and others. We can control the timing and tempo when subbody is a fetus before the birth. That's why to get the conditioning method is so important. 

Still our experience is not enough. We must meet a lot of unknown emergences of subbody. We have to prepare to accept any kinds of emergence of subbodies as natural phenomena of Life with full of Resonance. The training process to be the Midwife must be lifelong.

Belen, and all old students, also you need to continue the research in the darkness of body forever. Hope to come back Himalaya someday to co-research deeper.

Infinite freedom of Calabi-Yau Fetus





 This is the basic text of Second semester of Subbody School 2011.

Updated 14 September. 2011
 

"Art of Shisha



Hijikata wrote as the important thing for himself in his last butoh score of his last solo, "Quiet House".

Shisha transform their shapes quietly yet infinitely. It is not rare that they borrow the shapes of things on the earth with unexpected nonchalance."

(QH 2---This article can be a travel map for researcher in "Quiet House". Please investigate in the chapter which is showed as the chapter number of QH) 

In this short sentence, everything of Art of Shisha is condensed.
"Quiet but infinite transformation of Shisha without any intention"---This is the essence of essence of "Art of Shisha". The reason why infinite transformation happens is that transformation is change of resonance pattern of Life. Life is resonating with everything and the resonance pattern is infinite.

Exactly speaking life resonance generates qualia in Life. Because of the resonance pattern of qualia is infinite, then infinite transformation occurs.
Yes, Shisha is the qualia which Life feels.
Dead body does not transform. Dead body just follows the physical law.
But qualia of Shisha within Life can transform infinitely.

 If it is allowed to go further in the reason why qualia transform infinitely, qualia is generated in glia cell in the brain, qualia is generated by the change of resonance pattern of String in which String theory researching. They say that resonance pattern of String is infinite. But this is too apart from Butoh method. If you are interesting in it, Please read "The Qualia", "The resonance" and "The Life" in subbody.net』 And I recommend to research by yourself in string theory, brain science, life science, process orientated psychology by Mindell and so on. And please investigate further in what is Life, Qualia and Resonance by yourself.  

I used to explain that Shisha is a view point of Animism which is base of Japanese ancient culture. But at the same time we can understand it as the above when we integrate all of the recent researches and findings in various field of science. 

Ancient people in Animism culture understood deeper than us who are bound by physical scientific information which has forgotten both of Life and Death.

Until now Butoh is understood as the technique of becoming the dead body by following his famous word, "Butoh is a corpse (= dead body) which try to stand desperately." and practice of it which he gave beginning students in butoh. And they have spreaded to the world as the BUTOH. 

But when we study his last butoh score, "Quiet House" deeply, we can notice that the word is merely for beginners in butoh. In the "Quiet House", there is no description about the dead body but full of technique for becoming Shisha is written. Shisha means the dead in Japanese. But shisha is not the physical dead body but it can transform into everything quietly and infinitely.

Japanese and Asian deep culture are completely different from modern physical culture but they are based on Animism, which universal spirits are streaming and transforming flexibly at everywhere beyond the border between life and death.

This delicate and inevitable misunderstanding is based on the cultural gap between modern culture and ancient one. It has disturbed for modern western people to understand the true butoh. But when we sink down the darkness of body into the Abyss swaying between Life and Death, we can contact the subtle shivering of life.


From Dead body to Shisha, they are so wide apart. 

Even me, until the last year we started practice to becoming ash body which was burnt out by big fire. It is proper as an entrance of butoh, but the way toward the real butoh is so far from the entrance. Not only becoming dead but becoming Shisha, this infinite transformation technique is the essence of Hijikata’s butoh. It has so deep and complex logic of multi-dimensional and non-dual world which is completely different from the daily world which is bound by dualistic logic. 

Now I can try to guide the Technique of Shisha through the work to condense the contents of Subbody Butoh School into some essences as the following. When we can unify all of them, the total technique of Shisha will be completed as "Art of Shisha". It is the very "Butoh of Life" which Hijikata pursued in his later years. I investigated in the darkness of body for long years by alone apart from Hijikata. I found subbody butoh method which we become a Life through becoming a subconscious body. Life is resonating with everything in multi-dimensional and non-dual world. Through the investigation in "Quiet House" we found out what the multi-dimensional life resonance and Shisha are the same. Then we can transform naturally and infinitely. Finally, subbody method and Hijikata's Butoh method are integrated and become oneness as "The Resonant Art of Shisha" or simply "Art of Shisha".


Important elements of Art of Shisha

*Subbody

-Becoming subconscious body (=subbody), through stopping daily conscious mind.

*Life resonance
-Listening to subtle multi-dimensional life resonance, releasing from the binds of daily ego and self as a modern human.

*Infinite transformation
-Transforming quietly and infinitely into various being between death and life by using the method of the reduction by X and regeneration. 

*Reduction by X and regeneration
This is one of the main hidden logic for transformation in the darkness of body.
-"Reduction by X" means to reduce something from the daily body and mind. 
X can be anything. You can substitute (=put) anything for X. 
To reduce means simply to deduce. You can regard reduction and regeneration simply as “minus" and "plus" at the beginning. 
Reduction by X= Human body - X = Reduced body
Regeneration= Reduced body + X 
X can be the size, age, sex, weight, strength, number of dimension flexibility, fluidity, solidity and so on. 
At the beginning of transformation you can become anything by reducing something from your human body and mind. In the advanced realm, it becomes more complicated because it happens in the multi-dimensional and non-dual realm beyond simple dualistic logic.

The following are the samples of transformation using "the reduction by X" at the beginning of Butoh practice.


When we reduce fluidity from our body, we become solid body.

When we reduce solidity from human body, it becomes fluid body (ameba or any proto creature).
When we reduce both of fluidity and solidity from human body, it becomes vaporized body (air, wind, spirit and so on).
When we reduce own will from us, we become passive body which is moved by something else. (The red god -QH1=Quiet House 1st chapter- means this something which moves him.)
When we reduce speed from human movement, it becomes subtle speed (or the silence of speed).
When we reduce time, it becomes stillness.
When we reduce flexibility from our body, we become Stone body, Kugutsu body or Belrmelle. (QH 10, 19).
When we reduce the health from us, we become weakened body.
When we reduce the size from our body, we become boxed body or bottom body.
When we reduce surface personality (or persona=mask) from us, we become floor face or infinite hidden bodies will come out.

When we reduce or regenerate age, we become baby, fetus or old man/woman.
... etc.


The transformation by X reduction and regeneration give us infinite possibility of creation.

Long time ago I found similar logic in the darkness of body. It was "Changing the number of dimension". This finding guided me to understand the hidden logic of "X reduction and regeneration".
When we reduce time dimension from our four dimensional movement, it becomes stillness.
When we reduce one space dimension from our three dimensional shape, we becomes two dimensional being (=paper, wooden plate)
When we reduce two space dimension from three dimensional being, we become one dimensional being (=a stake or stick).
These are including in X reduction, I found that Hijikata's X reduction logic is much more universal than "Changing the number of dimension". 
It is universal hidden logic in the darkness of body. The extreme transformation in our dream, illusion and ancient Myth is created by these hidden logics, though we need to research farther through our subbody and cobody experience. 


*Carrying Density and Jumping wild
(The following sections are for advanced research in creation)
-"Freedom of carrying density" (QH 9) and "Jumping wild" (QH 25-27) are very characteristic of Shisha and life resonance. 
- The missing ring of the previous method of butoh is "Carrying density" and "Jumping wild". Hijikata performed them in his weakened body butoh actually, but they were so subtle that people (including me) could not catch them.

-Thus, the essence of the Technique of Shisha is "Reduction by X and regeneration". 
-When we could use the logic of X reduction flexibly, it is able to get the technique of "Carrying Density" and "Jumping Wild" as a Life. 


*Chimera and Nest body

There are so many qualia of Archetype in our darkness of body.
When we increase or decrease the number of qualia, we can create unique Chimera body or Nest body which wears various qualia of Archetype flexibly. 


*Whole-Part-Detail-Behind technique

These transformations are supported by WPD-B method which control the following four elements of the Whole body image, movement at a Part of body, subtle resonance at the Detail of part, resonance with Behind world.

A fine Spider’s thread that runs on the forehead (Detail)

Beggar (Whole)

Cat Waist (Part)

Behind World (Behind) (QH 1)


*Flower

They are suggested in various part of scores how to create the flower. 
There are two levels of flower, small flower and the flower of whole. 
Small flower :( QH 3- 19) 
Flower of timing (=Tame): (QH 12)

A shout and a girl – shivering before collapsing (QH 12)
This is the same as "Zu-Ji-Cho technique" in subbody method.
Zu=Picture=A shout → Collapsing, Ji=back ground=a girl, Cho=subtle signal=inner shivering

Flower of change :( QH 3-20)
Flower of carrying density : (QH 9) 
Flower of whole ( QH 20, QH 25-27) =Participation in the skin = Opening the Hidden Skin toward the world.

*Secret =Blood of dance 
we need the blood of dance in each part of butoh. Hijikata suggested lots of hints to put the blood of dance in the score. 

-Salmon face: as Hidden tendencies or Hidden characters which come out spontaneously form the darkness of body
-Horse meat: as your deep desire to connect to your dear home place
-Can factory: the deep memories which are connected to the most familiar place for your life. You can get actual qualia of life in whole channel. (QH 1)
-Dancing place: each part of your body which bound by various experiences or trauma. When we reverse twist the binds, we can transform them as a unique creation. (QH 16)
-Nightmare: Remember your fatal dreams in your life. They are so called proto dream or original dream. We need to solve the mystery with changing them to a creation. 
This each of own qualia is the blood of dance. Insert them on your each part of body in movement. Each part of body is bound by them. Dance the struggle for releasing between binds and reverse responses against the binds. Your butoh will be a necessary creation of Life. Without the blood, it is merely gymnastics. Hide your secret. 
Where?
In the surface of your skin. When you hide the secret, it becomes a flower.


*Mystery
The red god (QH 1)
Shisha (QH 2)
Soul and spirit (QH 3)
Vaporized body (QH 4 and 15)
Shivering (QH 24, See the next)
These mysteries which we cannot understand what it is, are the hidden behind our dance. Life is always in the huge mystery. Wear the all mysteries and sway between death and life.


*Shivering of Life

Bird's fear and bug's fear (QH 5)
Dizziness, shivering and swaying shadow of flower (QH 10)
Mescaline hands (QH 14)
Senile hand attached by bug of Rakan ( QH 17)
Shivering (QH 24)
These shiverings are the prototype of life response with the mysteries. When we take off the human illusion which we are strong or great, and we become a Life through the shivering we can resonate with all of Life. Hijikata wrote that butoh dancer has to be familiar with these subtle shiverings of Life. (QH 5)


*Resonance with Abyss

In the picture of the abyss, the focus must be on the participation in the skin rather than the compound eyes. (QH 22)


We can create original necessary butoh through opening the resonance between our Life and the abyss (=bottomless depth). The abyss can be own behind world, deep memory, proto dreamland and so on.
Learn the abyss meditation from Arnord Mindel and Bardo conditioning from Tibetan Buddhism and other traditions. Various ancient worship is to connect to the abyss for Life. Learn from them. 
We don't know what the abyss is. Just we can dance the bottomless fear as Life. 

*Hidden skin

The flower of the whole and the participation in the skin are homogeneous.

The nightmare, in which everything is performed with dropping hands, is particular to the naked body. (QH 20)

In the picture of the abyss, the focus must be on the participation in the skin rather than the compound eyes. There is only one moment of Heliogabalus.

Things that endure – It was the other face of dazzling moderation (QH 22)

Hijikata wrote about "the participation in the skin" (QH 20-27) as the final integration of the nest of eye, compound eyes and multi- layering. 
The skin means not only single layer of physical skin, but it means multi-layered Hidden skin. He wrote about the multi- layered hidden skin and various spaces exactly at the butoh score of the "Bugs walk" and “Ash walk”.
To open the world layer of hidden skin is the essence of the flower of the whole.
When only life opens the world layer of hidden skin, we can resonate with the shivering between "
things that endure" and "only one moment of Heliogabalus"
Listen to your body. Listen to the 
dazzling moderation of your life. And find the best timing of coming out of Heliogabalus. It could be the Flower of Kyu.
This is also Zu-Ji-Cho technique. (Zu=Picture=Heliogabalus, Ji=Ground=Things that endure=daily body, Cho=Subtle signal=Dazzling moderation.)


*Rhizoming technique to resonate with behind worlds

The Rhizoming method which resonates with various own behind world through multi-layered hidden skin by delicate bug's fear and bird's fear is necessary.
The Rhizoming technique was my original transformation method which I found long time ago.

At the beginning it was merely a technique of somatic movement. When we segment a movement in the minimum movement, it starts from a subtle tendency at a cell of each part of body. I have integrated it as a “Seven Rhizoming techniques”

They are the Bottom Rhizoming, Top Rhizoming, Edge Rhizoming, Inner Rhizoming, Behind Rhizoming, Front Rhizoming and Total Rhizoming.

Bottom Rhizoming grew up as the resonance with qualia of archetypes in the underground.

Top Rhizoming grew up as the resonance with qualia of archetypes in the heaven or sky.

Edge Rhizoming grew up as the resonance with various outer hidden skins.

Inner Rhizoming grew up as the resonance with various inner hidden skins

Behind Rhizoming grew up as the resonance with behind world or behind spirit.

Front Rhizoming grew up as the resonance with floating wish or spirit apart from the body.

(See "Ash walk" in the Practice Guide of this site)

Total Rhizoming grew up as a momentary resonance with the whole world.

*Butoh of Life and Art of Shisha

These are the oneness. Hijikata pursued what the Butoh of Life is in his latest age. He suggested them as technique of Shisha in "Quiet House".
When we integrate them the Butoh of Life will be completed as the Art of Shisha.
We will deepen it through group research by students of school and participants of workshop. 
And we will open it to the world through uploading them immediately on the site.
They will grow up as a common treasure in the world for opening infinite creativity, originality and resonativity(=resonant ability) of Life. It will help you to meet a necessary creation for living.
I believe that every Life needs own necessary creation for living. Subbody midwife devotes to support the process for each Life.



 I updated the following red part of the article.
 9 September, 2011

Becoming a Midwife


We need to become a Midwife, to open full creativity, originality, resonativity (resonance ability) of life, for the birth of subbody and cobody.
After the beginning process, we are just guided into subbody mode by another Midwife. But you should also become a Midwife too, for your own birth of subbody and cobody.

1. Principles of Midwife
-Leave from your Ego and Self, listen to the breath of subbody’s fetus which is going to be born.
-Find the best timing of birth, give the minimum stimulus and support to subbody’s fetus and mother’s womb (= body), resonate with the moment of the birth of subbody, concentrate with complete devotion to this moment.
-Not directing by your own intention the fetus of subbody and cobody, just by resonating and supporting each subbody and cobody so that they can follow their own necessity of creation.
-If any trouble happens, take all responsibilty of the birth. Midwife can never say that " It was because of him/her( the womb of subbody) or the fetus of subbody. "
They have no responsibility because they are a subtle posibility of life which is going to be born. Midwife has to take all responsibility including the unfortunate
miscarriage of the subbody and cobody. The reason of unpleasant accident must be found in the process which the midwife tried to guide. Also I did so many mistakes to kill subbodies and cobodies. It must be really hard as same as the miscariage of a real baby. Though the pleasure of the birth of subbody and cobody makes us extremly happy. Heaven and Hell is always together.


2. Edge work
-When you meet difficult and uncomfortable qualia in the darkness of body, resonate with the edge qualia as concretely as possible.
-Arnold Mindell said that edge is an encounter between first process (daily body) and second process (subbody), including unknown shadow, miserable hidden body, inferior personality, not-me, dissociated personality from your identity, trauma and so on.
-When our Ego (identity of daily body, first process) encounters unknown tendencies in the darkness of body, Ego denies them to protect and maintain the identity, social image and personality.
-Ask the person who meets an edge to give you his/her own uncomfortable qualia, qualia of binding pressure, unable and hard to endure, receive it by being pressed and return it to his or her body exactly as you received it.
-Repeat it until some awareness is coming up from his/her body. When awareness comes out just leave him/her to listen to this awareness.

3. Paradox of the edge
-There are so various types, levels and uniqueness in edge qualia, phenomena which occurs infinitely.
-When you meet an edge, recognize it at first and find a safe distance from it, until your life becomes ready to connect with it.
-With repeating the meeting and continue to taste it, become friend with it.
-Sometimes the Mengen (qualia of old somatic and mental injury) responses, comes out and attacks you, advise yourself or the other about the paradox of edge which is: The deepest of the suffering or difficulty, the biggest creation and awareness generates through the edge process. Advise to endure with believing at this paradox of edge.
-About physical suffering or pain, resonate through resonance touch method or shiatsu according to the type or degree and let the body to follow the Life’s resonance, just wait the natural process of self-cure ability which comes from the proto-vitality of Life.

4. Various phenomena of Life’s resonance
-Various phenomena of strange relationships occur: projections, dreaming up and so on. We need to find the best resonance pattern with them.
-Projections are phenomena of resonance between real relationships and archetypes of father, mother, anima, animus, shadow, guru.
-Dreaming up is a phenomenon between a dream and a real image of a person (Midwife and student), when an uninvited (but unconsciously invited) visitor comes in our dreams.
-Both of them (projections and dreaming up) are one kind of natural resonance patterns of qualia, we cannot stop or control it, we can only observe these phenomena as a Shisha, from the dead world. When we can observe these phenomena as a Shisha from the dead world, we can see them transparently, we can see what is happening in Life’s qualia resonance and share the Bardo conditioning together. These phenomena have infinite variations of qualia’s resonance without being bounded. Taste them as Life’s resonance phenomena, just enjoy them like a Shisha watching a movie and accept them like something natural and not like something you should stop or deny, to deny them is impossible anyway…

5. Awe of Life and Death
-We cannot deny it, we cannot expect what is happening in the darkness of the body, so many unknown phenomena are hidden, and we know only a very small part of them, maybe under 1%. The Midwife should throw your body into the unknown darkness and continue digging in your darkness of body. Also students need to be a Midwife for themselves as early as possible, and find the best time to swift from student to Midwife.

Letter from Jullie

Jullie gave me a letter from France with resonating previous article; "Watching from death".
I am happy to know the resonance. Also she send me an intersting text about parallel universe from psychiatiric reseach. Yes! Nowadays various researchs are approaching another dimension, psychiatric, string theory of physics, body-mind work, brain science, anthropology, hypnosis therapy, and so on.
We need to integrate all of them as life without binding by only one aspect.
I guess some of long term students and readers are in the similar condition which is experiece between death and life.
I recommend just to taste it deeply. Because it is real life resonance. So deep and rich awareness will be come out through it. Someday we can integrate all of them, and will find the hidden logic of life resonance in the darkness of body.

"Reduction by X and regeneration" is a one of precious finding of the hidden logic by Hijikata.
"Increasing an decreasing the number of dimension" is another finding by me. i could understand Hijikata's llogic based on this finding. And I noticed Hijikata's logic is more universal. It includes the numeber of dimension. X can be much more other things.
" Understand every fenomena as a resonance" is my own biggest finding to understand fenomena in the darkness of body and life.

Jullie, see you September!

Dear Lee,

Thanks for the email. Yes, I met Eduardo in Paris before he came to Greece, it was nice.
And thank you so much for the text "watching life from death" you put on your website. Since I left Japan, and even more since I left India, I have had quite strong insomnia. After I got sick in India, I had some cardiac problems and got really scared of dying, which leaded me to be unable to sleep. Since then, I have been thinking about death pretty often, and by extension, life. Maybe that's why I guided a conditionning about resonnating with death during the rehearsal of "Fukushima, mon amour". Reading your text this morning, after another night of insomnia, made me feel like I am not alone, that at least someone can understand.

I am looking forward to dance with you again in October and to deepen "Fukushima, mon amour".

Resonnating from France,

Julie

PS: Here is a text about madness I read quite a long time ago, after being released from psychiatric hospital. I thought you might like it too:

"And it is easy to slip into a parallel universe. There are so many of them: worlds of the insane, the criminal, the crippled, the dying, perhaps of the dead as well. These worlds exist alongside this world and ressemble it, but are not in it…most people pass over incrementally, making a series of perforations in the membrane between here and there until an opening exists. And who can resist an opening?"

"In the parallel universe the laws of physics are suspended. What goes up does not necessarily come down, a body at rest does not tend to stay at rest, and not every action can be counted on to provoke an equal and opposite reaction. Time, too, is different. It may run in circles, flow backward, skip about from now to then. The very arrangement of molecules is fluid. Tables can be clocks; faces, flowers.

"These are facts you find out later, though.

"Another odd feature of the parallel universe is that although it is invisible from this side, once you are in it you can easily see the world you came from. Sometimes the world you came from looks huge and menacing, quivering like a vast pile of jelly; at other times it is miniaturized and alluring, a-spin and shining in its orbit. Either way, it can't be discounted.

"Technique of Shisha 1"
Watching life from death


A strange conditon continues on my body and mind after leaving from Himalaya.
I was so tired during the two weeks Himalaya Butoh Festival. I could not sleep during the term.
I am carried by unknown space quietly as a dead during the travel.
Exactly saying, it seems a condition of so called "Bardo" in Tibettan Buddhism.
It is another timespace between life and death. In Buddhism it is beleived that the dead floats in the Bardo during 49 days after the death.
Also I felt as if I am floating in the Bardo during the two months travel from Himalaya, via Switzerland, and Greece.
I met various foreign scenary and things during the travel, I resonated with them as only once resonance until dying. I cannot bring them into the dead world.
I felt every qualia as only one chance in life.
Even subtle qualia of swaying leaf, bird song, floating cloud, I could felt so brilliant and each of them is so rich and uique.
I could feel all of qualia as very precious resonance of life. After the death I can not feel any qualia through life resonance. I can not carry them into dead world.
Now an important awareness came out. This must be the first essence of "the Technique of Shisha.


The entrance of " Thechnique of Shisha" is to stop daily mind and body.
Because they are so gross and rough comparing the subtle qualia of life.
They are trillion times stronger than life qualia.
As a daily body, we cannot be aware of the subtle sway of qulalia in the darkness of body by masking of strong language thinking.
We can try to stop thinking through various conditionings; the breath of life, swaying meditation, shivering conditioning, and so on.
Through these conditionings, we can calm down conscious thinking, and language brain.
But, it takes long time to get it.
In the intensive summer workshop in Greece, though the term is four weeks,
at the third week half of participants have exchanged. Then we had to start again from the beggining of conditioning to become subbody mode.
Almost participants still could not respect the only one principle not to talking during the class.
They start talking often unconsiously. It means they are not in subbody mode. It means also that it is not able for them to stop inner talking and thinking.
Even one word coming out, it destroys the subbody mode of other people including me.

To take off all condition of human and to become Shisha is the essense of butoh.
Then in the third week, I decide to guide people into the dead world which I am experiencing now as "Bardo".

Through normal conditioning of swaying or vibrating, when we enter the subbody mode, slowly all of life swayings stop and become a Quiet body as a dead.
Watch this living world from the dead world.
You are already not here, nobody can see your shape.
What will be seen on your dead eyes?
What is happening in living world?
What is life?
What is death?

Continue this condition during your whole life.
You can get so presious awareness about life and death.
You will be able to become a butoh dancer someday.

How to create "the Fllower"

In the last butoh score "Quiet House", there are hidden so many hints to create own fllower of butoh.
Fllower means the deep life resonance between a moment of dance and the life of audience or the world.
Withot fllower, it is not dance, but just a exercise of movement.
The middle part of the "Quiet House" ( chapter 12- 19), Hijikata wrote several important techniques of creation.


Fllower of timing

12. Collapsing
A shout and a girl – shivering before collapsing

This is the so called "Tame" technique in Japanese tradition.
Tame is to wait the the best timing for each movement.
Each movement has the best timing to come out.
If it is too early or too late, the movement has to lose the fllower.
When a girl is going to collapse( =to fall down), there should be an inner shivering of life. And when the inner shivering comes out as a subtle inner shout,
dancer's movement can resonante with the audience life, "What will happen next moment?
".
When dancer can share the resonace with the world, it is the timing to collapse which dancer and audience can share the collapsing together as oneness of life.
Then the collapsing can be not only physical movement but also can be a fllower with full of life resonance.

Fllower of change

16. The difficulty of changing place
The body is a dancing place. A dancing place of the hand, a dancing place of the hip, a dancing place of behind the elbow, and so on.
The depth of this dancing place is formed by overcoming the deep memories (and qualias) that were caught in each dancing place and reverse twisting them.
For example, suppose there is a house of Mr. Yanagida, and I discover that it is a very precious thing that there is a peacock in Mr. Yanagida’s yard.
And the place called “Can Factory” is narrated by the powder that was dear to me.
They become the blood of the dance.

When dancer can put own blood of dance into each change, it becomes fllower .
Change includes various kind of change; change of the speed, change of the shape, change of the size, change of the dancing place, and so on.
Remember your own experience to encounter the peacock in Yanagida's garden. When Hijikata met the peacock unexpectedly, his life was moved with surprising, he felt that this is very precious moment which my life was moved deeply. That unexpected surprise is the fllower. When you can find a unique timing of change, it can be youe own fllower.
Reseach youw own experience which your life was moved with precious feeling, you can create your own beauty of change in your dance.

Fllower of density

14. Mescaline Hands
The issue that the hands possess will gradually becomes clear
( See chapter 25, 26, 27)

10. (Mescaline)
The love affair of hands and the copy inside the skull are connected through discontinuity. A mescaline injection is given at a fingertip. Small flowers and small faces are born there.

When a mescaline injection is given at a fingertio of mad king, the love affair of hands increase density into another world. You can share many illusious small fllowers and faces with audience. The hands can be a fllower which was focused in the world and resonate with the audience.


17. (Rakan)
Bugs attach to Rakan with senile hand – Small Flower – String – Sea Shell – Scale

A Rakan's hande is senile, he cannot stop the shivering. This is the base movement. And when you add another shivering which a bug crawl on your senile hand, the shivering become complicated and unique. You can carry the density by overlapping. It is a technique of multi-layering.

You can carry the density of a part of body( for example your face) by increasing the physical tension and overlapping a emotion with increasing density. It means overlapping emotion on the physical movement. Then youe face become a fllower which is focused in the world.
And you can involve all audience into your world. When the life resonance is completed, it becomes a fllower.

These are the methods of creating a fllower which is absolutely necessary for creation. Reseach in your life, there must be hidden so many hints of creating unique fllower.

"Technique of Shisha 2" in Greece

The first week of one month intensive workshop in Greece is over.
Here We are studying the essense of Hijikata Butoh method which is researching at Subbody Butoh School in these years.
It is called as "The technique of Shisha".

Hijikata wrote as a importance for himself in his last butoh score of his solo of "Quiet House".

" Important
Shisha transform their shapes quietly yet infinitely. It is not rare that they borrow the shapes of things on the earth with unexpected nonchalance.”

(QH 2nd chapter)

Until now, Butoh is understand as the technique of becoming the dead body by following his famous word , "Butoh is a corpse(= dead body) which try to stand desperately."

But when we study his last butoh score, "Quiet House" carefully, we can notice that the word is merely for beginners of butoh.
In the "Quiet House", there are no discription about the dead body, but full of technique for becoming Shisha is wrote.
Shisha means the dead in Japanese. But, shisha is not the physical dead body, but it can transform quietly and infinitely into ecerything. Japanese deep culture is completely different from modern physical culture, but it is based on Animsm, which universal spirits are streaming and transforming flexiblly at everywhere beyond the border between life and dead.

This delicate and unevitable misunderstanding based on the culture gap has disturbed to understand the true butoh for western people, though it is simplly saying.

From Dead body to Shisha, they are so wide apart.
Even me, until the last year we started practice to becoming ash body.
it is proper as a entrance of butoh, but the way towad the real butoh is so far from the entrance.
Not only becoming dead, but becoming Shisha, this infinite transformation technique is the essense of butoh. It has so deep and complex logic of multi-dimensional and non-dual world which is completely defferent from the daily world which is bound by dualistic logic.
Now I can try to guide the Technique of Shisha through the work to condense the contents of Subbody Butoh school into some essenses as the following;

Technique of Shisha

Subbody
-Becoming subconscious body(=subbody), through stopping daily conscious mind.

Life resonance
-Listening to subtle multi-dimensional life resonance, releasing from the binds of daily ego and self as a modern human.

Infinite transformation
-Transforming quietly and infinitely into various being between death and life by using the method of the reduction by X and regeneration.

Reduction by X and regeneration
-"Reduction by X" means to reduce something from the daily body and mind.
( For example, When we reduce fluidity from human body, it becomes solid body( stone or wood).
When we reduce solidity from human body, it becomes fluid body (Ameba or any proto creature or water body).
When we reduce both of fulidity and solidity from human body, it becomes vaporized body( QH 3, 4, 15) what can transform into everything naturally and infinitely
When we reduce own will from us, we become passive body which is moved by something else. (The red god (QH 1) means someone which moves him.)
When we reduce speed from human movement, it becomes subtle speed ( or the silence of speed; QH 3).
When we reduce time, it becomes stilness ( QH 5, 8).
When we reduce flexisiblity from our body, we become Stone body,
Kugutsu body, or Belmelle (QH 10, 19).
When we reduce the health from us, we become weakened body.
When we reduce almost of vitality, it becomes Framan (=near death
body, QH 3)
When we reduce size from our body, we become boxed body or bottom
body.
When we reduce surface personality (or persona=mask) from us,
infinite hidden bodies(=salmon faces; QH 1) will come out.
When we reduce moderation of daily body, we become mad king
(=Heriogabals QH 10, 22)
When we reduce or regenerate age, we become baby, fetus or old
man/woman.
...etc, etc.
The transformation by X reduction and regeneration give us infinite posiblity of creation.

Carrying Density and Jumiping wild
-"Freedom of carrying density" (QH 9) and "Jumping wild" (QH 25-27) are the very charasteristic of Shisha and life resonance.
- The missin ring of the previous method of butoh is "Carrying density" and "Jumiping wild". Hijikata parformed them in his weakened body butoh actually, but they are so subtle that people (includes me) could not catch them.

Chimera and Nest body

-The are so many qualia of Archetype in our darkenss of body.
When we increase or decrease the number of qualia, we can create unique Chimera body( QH 10,11) or Nest body ( QH 8) which wears so many various qualia of Archtype.
-Thus, the essense of the Technique of Shisha is "Reduction by X and regeneration".
But, we could not understand enough the importance of the sunken logic which Hijikata found in the darkeness of body.
-When we could use the logic of X reduction flexiblly, it is able to get the technique of "Carrying Densty" and "Jumping Wild" as a Life.

Hidden skin
Hijikata wrote about "the participation in the skin" (QH 20-27) as the final integration of the nest of eye, compaund eye, and multi layering.
The skin means not only single layer of physical skin, but it means multi-layered Hidden skin. He wrote about the multi layered hidden skin and various spaces exactly at the butoh score of the "Bugs walk".

Rezoming technique to resonate with behind worlds
The rezoming method which resonates with various own behind worlds through multi-layered hidden skin by delicate bug's fear and bird's fear is necessary.

WPD-B method
These transformations are supported by WPD-B method which we controll the following four elements of the Whole body image, movement at a Part of body, subtle resonance at the Detail of part, resonance with Behind world.

Resonace with Abyss
We can create original necessary butoh through opening the resonance between each dancing place (part of body) and the abyss(=-infinite depth) of own behind world.

Butoh of Life and Thechnique of Shisha
These are the essensial elements of "the Technique of Shisha".
It means the same as "the Butoh of life" which Hijilata priented in his latest age.

We will deepen it through group research by students of school and participants of workshop.
And we will open it to the world through uploading them immdeately on our site.
It will grow up as a common treasure in the world for the necessary creation of Life.

Resonance revolution at one billion years ago

14 May, 2011

Our life was one celled creature from the biggining to one billion years ago for three billions years long.
Just one billion years ago, one celled creature invented a new resonance pattern among them. It was an invention of resonance pattern of a colony celled creature (See pictures of Gonium, Eudoria and Volvox above). They were still one celled creature, but they invented a confortable resonance pattern to live together.
Their trials and experiments of various resonance patterns guided to the big invention of multi-celled creature at one billion years ago.
Some cells at the outside( Ectoderm) became the skin, inner part (Endoderm) became proto intestine for digestion.
Midium part (mesoderm) became tissue of body.

Later, Nerve system and brain came out from the skin( Ectoderm).
Inner organs were differentiated from Endoderm.
Muscles, bones and blood were from Mesoderm.

The most intersting process is the moment just before of the differentiation of each part of body. Each cell has the possibility to take every role like the ES cell (Empryo Stem cell) which is able to become every part of body.

We are now learning their resonance patterns at that moment which everyone is able to be any part of body. Without a being of special choreographer, each student can be every role to co-create a world.

We don't need the role of choreographer and dancers. Everybody can be both of them as a 'Choreo-dancer'.
This is the proto-type of the resocracy which the future human society will be.


 

Dancing the warped qualia

6, May, 2011

In our life of each cell, uncomfortable qualia which could not resonate with well are imprinted. Our consciousness has forgotten them, but the cell keep them as the life memories.  We call them "warped qualia".

When life was warped, or pressed, twisted and so on, life kept the qualia in the cell as inner qualia.

 

Life is waiting for coming the timing when life can reverse the warped qualia and recover the uncomfortable condition.

The reversing the warped qualia is creation of life.

 

We can research what warped qualia are remained in our each part of body.

When we found the warped qualia at some part of body, we follow the subtle tendency of reverse warp. And ride on them by whole body and mind, and amplify the tendency. It becomes the creation of life as the reverse warp.

 

Life can recover the uncomfortable condition of warped qualia through the reverse warp. This is the sunken logic of life.

 

Dancing the warped qualia and reverse warp is the butoh of life.

A secret of Hijikata's subtle body control technique

"Three" is the entrance tunnel to release from dualistic binds.

"Three" is the necessary way to the multi-dimensional world.

Hijikata knows well about the importance of "three", he used "three" often.

There is an important "three" at the first chapter of Quiet House ;"Red god".

 

This "three" is the secret method how to control subtle body.

 

 

  1. A fine Spider’s thread that runs on the forehead---Subtle qualia at the detail of body
  2. Beggar                                                        --- Total body image
  3. Cat Waist                                                    ---Partial body movement

     

    Hijikata controled this three level with the best balance for focusing on the subtle qualia at each detail of body. To show the subtle qualia is the main thing, the whole body shape, and partial movement are supporter for the subtle qualia. Then the subtle qualia; sway, shiver, collapse and so on can be focused as a picture.
    We need to arrange the best timing to focus a subtle qualia at tiny detail.
    In Japanese we call it "Tame" and "Ma" which is a time of stilness preparing the best timing a flower coming out. Also we need proper techinque of controling three level of body how to arange the three; a subtle detail, a part of body, and total image of body to focus on the subtle qualia transformation.

    Then audience saw as if he could control all of infinite subtle transformation.

    This is the secret method of Hijikata magic.

     



Dream body and subbody-cobody
17, April, 2011

Dream body and subbody=cobody are brother, sister.
Both are the life resonance, and live in another world from the daily world.
Dream and subbody-cobody have completely different logic from the daily world. Hijikata called it "Sunken (=Hidden) logic world before the separation between self and others".
Only a little difference between them is movement channel. Dream body doesn't open body-movement channel, inspite of subbody and cobody open body-movement channel.

Co-create the Sunken logic world

We can learn what kinds of strange logics are working in these world.
We can enter into the other person's dream land by cobody resonance so naturally. Because we are one life. Life shares the dreamland which has the sunken logic as common property.

Infinite creativity and resonativity of life

THis week we will try to co-create the other world where dream body and subody-cobody live by cobody resonance.
We can do it so naturally, because we share the same qualia of dreamland and subbody-cobody. This infinite creativity and resonativity is common property of life.
Subbody school is the place to open the infinite treasure of life.


 World transforming cobody
16, April, 2011

Subbody and cobody are resonating with other worlds always, and shifting from one after another.
In the dream we can see various transformation of world and self image.
We can co-create the transformation of the worlds through cobody resonance.
During this month, cobody will grow up as a so many different worlds creator.

 

Rotten eyes and Forest face

13, April, 2011


Segmenting and multi-layering, this is the essence to create the nest body.

It need so many layers of different qualia to build it up.

 

Training of the Hidden muscles of face

 

 Move each deep layers muscle of face into three dimensional directions.

-Head muscle

-Eye blow muscle

-Eye muscle

-Nose muscle

-Cheek muscle

-Mouth muscle

-Rip muscle

-Tongue muscle

-Chin muscle  

-Joe muscle

-Throat muscle

-Neck muscle

-Shoulder muscle

-Chest muscle

….and so on

 

Rotten eyes

 

Integrate the following eyes to build the rotten eyes.

-Transparent eyes

-Glass ball eyes

-Diagonal eyes

-Edge eyes

-White eyes

-Sick eyes

-Compound eyes

-Kabuki eyes

-Floating eyes

-Dead eyes

-The third eye

-Hidden skin

 

Forest face

 

Integrate the following faces as multi-layers.

-Faces of ancesters

-Faces of the Behind spirit

-Massages  from the Behind world

-Face of the Hidden characters

-Faces of the Proto creatures

-Faces of the dead

-Faces of near death

-Faces of sick

-Faces of beggars

-Faces of archetypes

-Faces of the weakened bodies

-Faces of old trees

 
Waking with Jo-Ha-Kyu

Walk with finding Jo-Ha-Kyu of the Forest face
Jo: Start walking with watching this world from dead world through rotten eyes and forest face
Ha: Increase the specfic multi-layers qualia of messages or complex of emotions from behind world
Kyu: Amplify it to the maximum and become oneness with audience and the world
Ending: Walk back to other world with transforming another being

Necessity of the weakened body

 

We learned how to transform into the weakened body through the method of Bug Walk" by Hijikata Tatsumi.

With followingh the Jo-Ha-Kyu of the Bugs walk, we can progress the weakeness until the weakest condition of being.

But, the weakened body is not only physical technique, but it demands us a radical revolution among the ego, self, and life. 

It is the process to take off the gross stereotypes of the "Human".

It is not easy, because we are educated and trained as a human for long time.

And all of us feel  that to be human is our advantage and pride.

When we are bound by the pride, we forget the resonance among every life,  

And the pride shifts to conceit and vanity against the other life.

"The human is the king on the planet, we can decide everything on the earth freely." 

This is the biggest common illusion which all the human are bound.

Our ego and self is not top of the world and the Universe.

Far from it! The illusion is just a disturbance against the life resonance.

We need to realize the necessity to be a weakened body to recover the life resonance among all lives.
To deepen the study for the weaknened body, we need to listen to the darkness of body, and find one's own necessity to take off the human and transform into the weakened body.

Archetype of the Bottom body


The numinous depth of the Buttom body connects to the archetype of the bottom in various myths and folklores.




 Researching the constellation of the dakness of body
 27 March, 2011

Researching the constellation of the darkness of body


This week, we will research the constellation of the darkness of body.
Our lives are resonating with numberless qualia at a moment. And sometimes a tendencies of qualia are coming up like a meaningfull scene of a dream, and changing immediately to another scenery.
Jung call it the constellation as a kind of fenomena of synchronicity. But, if we know what the life resonates with countless qualia in each moment, it is just normal thing.
Always the life is changing from a pattern to another ffrequently. Sometimes a shape or a landscape comes up and disappears. It is just normal fenomina of qualia resonance.

Hijikata guided us into this strange travel as " A size walk".
He knew well how strange things will happen in the travel forreseaching the constellation of the darkness of body. He called it "The hidden logic world".
We need to prepare to accept any strange things might happen in the travel.

A size walk

1. Walk with becoming a fixed size body.
2. Not walking, but shifting body between heaven and the earth.
3. Eyes become glass ball eyes, open the third eye between the eyeblows.
4. The speed which the scenes are reflected on your glass ball eyes is quicker than the speed which you see the scenes.
5 Put the razor blades under the soles.
6. Carry a water vase on the top of the head.
7. All joints are hanged by spider's thread.
8. A wish to walk goes ahead, the shape of body follow it from behind.
9. The traces of walk are hanged in front of you and behind.
3. Eyes become glass ball eyes, open the third eye between the eyeblows.
5 Put the razor blades under the soles.
6. Carry a water vase on the top of the head.
10. A forest at the back of teeth. Spider's threads in the empty cavity of body.
11. Already the eyes have stopped to see, the legs have stopped to walk.
Your being itself become walking eyes, and walking legs.
12. The walking demands the discontinuity of walk, and
suggests an expanse of space.
1. Walk with becoming a fixed size body.

Rhizoming technique to resonate with other world behind this world


This week we learned a method to resonate with other world behind this world.

It is called "Rhizoming technique".
We amplify a specific subtle qualia which only one cell resonates and it spreads to the whole body.  Through this technique we can resonate with so many different worlds behind this world. This is also the most essential method of Hijikata Butoh.

 

There are seven Rhizoming techniques.

 

  1. Bottom rhizoming

    Resonate with qualia from underground; qualia of the dead, ancestor, gravity, and so on. 

     

  2. Top rhizoming

    Resonate with qualia of heaven; fairy, angel, sky, star, moon, galaxy, and so on.

     

  3. Behind rhizoming

    Resonate with behind spirit, behind world, millions of dead

     

  4. Front rhizoming

    Resonate with your separated spirit. In front of you your spirit is floating.  You want to become one with your spirit, but it is unable. Because you are a dead body disable to move. Desperately, you are eager to approach the spirit.

     

  5. Touch rhizoming

    Resonate with the hidden skin with invisible qualia; imaginary creature or something  in the space.  

     

  6. Inner rhizoming

    Resonate with your inner organ. It starts strange happening. Your stomach starts dancing. Bugs eat your inner organs. Your intestine comes out from the cavityy and dancing with strange emotion.  

     

  7. Total rhizoming

    Resonate with invisible qualia which only you know. Your total body changes at a stroke.

The secret of the Bottom body

The bottom body was a deep question for me for long time. I have become it so often for many years, but I couldn't understand what it is. It was just an opaque question.

But, slowly the secret of bottom body is going to be unfolded. 

During the second week of 2011 for five days we continued to research the bottom body from different aspects.

Almost students found their own unique bottom bodies. Some of them met the first bottom and second bottom body.  Transformation among them was so rich and deep taste.

Then I found that until this year we did only one or two day for researching bottom body.  This was my biggest mistake. It was too short. It need for one week or more to meet the bottom.  I realized so.

 

I did not recognized the real importance of the bottom body until last year.

I felt that the bottom body is special thing only for me, than I could not guide students so much strongly toward the bottom body.

But, during last year we research Hijikata's last butoh score "Quiet House" , and could create various practice methods.

This experience gave me a strong confidence what I am not alone.

I found the boxed body for Hijikata is the same as the bottom body.

And also Ohno kazua had various bottom bodies.

The bottom is one of the importance for transformation.

In the Greece and Roman myth, the Mercury who is a symbol of transformation is put into a bottle. Also this is a kind of bottom body.

In the Aradin's magic lamp of Arabian night, also a giant is folded in the lamp or vase.

 

These smallest spaces were a base camps of transformers in various culture.

Now finally, I understand that the bottom body is an universal necessity for transformation.        

At first the subbody method was born independently from Hijikata. But, through these processes the subbody method and Hijikata's method resonated and are going to become oneness.

The resonance brought it.

 

 "The Ten Bodies" is updated. Crick here to read it.

 

 

 
A Happy New Year!

Sorry to be unconbinient for long time.
At the end of last year, a big thundervolt attcked all of my computer and internet system. It took for one month to re-arrange them.

But I could have so quiet retreat released from all of infomations.
I could concentrate on to listen to only the subtle qualia streaming in the darkness of body.
It was the most confortable time in my life, as if a meditation in the womb without words.
Slowly I will come back to update the site.

I could taste that the life is resonating with everything beyond time and space in the non-dual and multi-dimensional realm.

May this year become a good year for you to be able to contact the quiet and infinite life resonance.

At first, I am happy to introduce that a good news Julie send us.
