Wonderful online class last night with Mikhail Ryabko and Vladimir Vasiliev! The content of the class was based on questions asked by the participants. The main practice of the class was how to overcome your fear. We practised this by learning how to fall without fear. With the help of demonstrations from Daniil Ryabko and Eric Peres, Mikhail and Vladimir joyfully guided us all how to do this.
The reason for practising this exercise was really not to practise the skill of falling, but to reduce the tension in our head and in our thoughts. Mikhail said that you have to feel the moment when fear comes in, relax and fall. It’s as if you’re jumping off a plane with a parachute.
Mikhail also gave us an example of falling without fear by dropping a piece of paper. We should fall like that. Mikhail demonstrated this and he just fell without any plan in mind, but he landed so softly. Amazing to see!
The whole class was just so positive, fun and full of inspirational and profound teachings about many topics. It was a real pleasure to be part of such a class. Thanks once again to Mikhail, Vladimir, and, of course, Valerie for the great class!
