Wayfarer: @here Hello Internet, I am going to rant at you for a while now. I’ve got some options for y’all. If anyone is even here what wants to be ranted upon.

Rainsong: hihi… I’m “listening” 🙂

Wayfarer: 1) if you’re good at remote viewing and like, understand what it is, can follow a protocol, like you get out paper and know what I’m talking about if I say “stage 1” or “AOL Bk” then we can hit some of those RV targets up above. Obviously we should also not be the tasker but I can reassign coordinates if we are the tasker.

ThunderGladiator: The CIA wants to know your location.

Wayfarer: 2) if you don’t want to do any of those things, I’ve been studying the ancient mystical grifter art of feng shui lately, and everyone is bad except me. I am the only person who is good at this.

Wayfarer: The CIA should know already; my computer is broadcasting an IP address!!!!!

Wayfarer: So because I’m the only person who is good at this I am going to explain why I am saying that and then lay out the real shit. It will be extremely authentic and consistent and you will be able to clown on folks who think they know some shit.

Wayfarer: Secret Bonus Option: 3) I dunno, ask me questions and I’ll answer them. We doin’ a master class.

Vampire of Death: I have a question of sorts regarding practicing, but it’s a little complicated and requires a few relative examples.

Wayfarer: Secret bonus option 3 is a go for now. Go for it.

TehOldeSourcerer: Hi

Chirotractor: I’m good for hearing about your funk sway wayfarer

Wayfarer: Aight I’ll talk about that after the questions.

Overlaps of Buddhist Practice and Energy Work

Instructor: Wayfarer
Date: October 5, 2019 (Saturday)

Seminar: Topic: “Overlaps” of Buddhist Practice and Energy Work (also some religious views of psionics) -by request of Azum’ram and TehOldeSourcerer — Saturday, 5 October, 2019 at 6:30pm/1830hr New York Time — text format in the PSC #lecture room (Discord) — Instructor: Wayfarer — Search LECTURE96

Rainsong: Good evening, ladies, gentlemen, and people generally.

Rainsong: Welcome to another psionics seminar here at the social club

Rainsong: Are there any requests for tonight?

Rainsong: Apparently not…

Azum’ran: Are there any strong overlaps between Buddhist practices and energy work?

Azum’ran: If a lecturer is knowledgeable in working causal grooves, as an example, I’d be particularly interested in that

Rainsong: @Wayfarer Do you feel like fielding that question?

Constructs: Common Issues for Beginners

Instructor: Rainsong
Date: September 28, 2019 (Saturday)

Seminar: Topic: Constructs, common issues for beginners — Saturday, 28 September, 2019 at 6:30pm/1830hr New York Time — text format in the PSC #lecture room (Discord) — Instructor: Rainsong — Search LECTURE95

TehOldeSourcerer: Hi

Rainsong: Hi

TehOldeSourcerer: Haven’t had time to see a lecture in a while

Rainsong: Do you have a particular psionics-related topic you’d like to see covered?

TehOldeSourcerer: Thinking on that. Nothing much has been on my mind other than construct creation and meditation. Construct creation has been on my mind more as I try to navigate the confusion about thoughtforms, servitors and tulpas.

TehOldeSourcerer: Been attempting to come up with a way to explain these to others in a way that covers what one should avoid doing as a beginner, pitfalls you can find in your creation of these all these mental creations, etc.

Rainsong: Alright… Constructs it is.

Rainsong: As mentioned in the main chatroom, I won’t be discussing tulpas, because I don’t know enough about them to comment intelligently, so I have almost no chance at all of cutting through all the rubbish that’s grown up about them in recent times.

Rainsong: Thoughtforms and constructs are overlapping concepts, essentially the same things, with some traditions making small distinctions in usage.

Rainsong: Not touching that one, either, because in this part of the ‘psionics world’, typically the two terms are interchangeable

Rainsong: Most of the problems beginners have with constructs is that they attempt to do things too complicated and too complex for their level of skill…

Rainsong: …and usually too complex for their intended purpose, which can result in anything from mere inefficiency to (hilariously) backfiring

Rainsong: Or, even more frequently, simply failing to produce anything more than a transient blob of stuff

Trash Pandas, Empathic Emissions, and Safe Practice

Instructor: Rainsong & Wayfarer
Date: September 21, 2019 (Saturday)

Seminar: Topic: trash pandas, empathic emissions, and safe practice — Saturday, 21 September, 2019 at 6:30pm/1830hr New York Time — text format in the PSC #lecture room (Discord) — Instructor: Rainsong and Wayfarer — Search LECTURE94

Rainsong: Hi, all.

Rainsong: Welcome to another psionics seminar here at the social club

Rainsong: One of our trash pandas has very young cubs, so we were putting some extra snacks out for her.

Rose Cinderfall: aaww

Rainsong: She has a month to get them to full size and fat, if they’re going to make it through the winter, normally. We’ll be extra careful to make sure food is available for them, and also contacting the wildlife rescue to see if there’s anything else we should be doing for them

Rainsong: We don’t actually have a scheduled topic for the evening… Any requests?

Rose Cinderfall: …tensing and oomph amount in PK? has that been covered before in a lecture?

Vampire of Death: Trash panda.

Vampire of Death: Nani.

Rainsong: Trash panda = North American Raccoon (also known as the long-tailed bear and the washbear)

Wayfarer: My spirit animal

Rose Cinderfall: i like the term trash panda

Chirotractor: adressing people with… not so great empathic emissions

Rose Cinderfall: anyone else have a suggestion for the lecture subject?

Rainsong: We can probably cover both of the suggestions so far. Anyone else?

PatchesTheCoydog: Safe psi practice might be good since been been brought up elsewhere… checked logs on psc site to see if any on that specifically, there are ones health issues and medical issues but none on how to practice safely specifically unless missed it(though sometimes mentioned in others). Not meaning pick on Rose by suggesting it either(would be hypocritical considering some stupid shit I’ve done in past and likely most here which why might be good lecture topic)

Rainsong: Sure thing. It’ll fit nicely with Rose’s suggestion

Book Discussion: The PK Zone

Instructor: Wayfarer
Date: August 24, 2019 (Saturday)

Seminar: Topic: PK- Saturday, 24 August, 2019 at 7:00pm/1900hr New York Time — text format in the PSC #lecture room (Discord) — Instructor: Wayfarer — Search LECTURE90

Wayfarer: Informal because I’m hella preppin’ for some shit next week for Tibetan Astrology. I’ll be happy to cover some recap on Tibetan Astrology stuff, and elements and so on, and this will also do well with skills as skill development, blah blah. Mostly I’m going to do a book report on The PK Zone. I got press-ganged into standing by at a meditation retreat today in case the teacher needed an interpreter so I am not quite as prepared as I’d like to be but here we are lmao

Rainsong: It happens

Wayfarer: So anyhow, let’s call this thing started. How y’all? Questions, comments, hate mail, threats, etc. about the previous two weeks?

Wayfarer: I’ve done… no prep on those other talks and am desperately behind time because of that standby-interpretation gig but that’s normal as hell, heck yeah.

Chirotractor: No hate mail at least

Wayfarer: Okay, looks like no questions or, apparently, hate mail! So, The PK Zone is a big ol’ book that goes over the state of the field of PK research within parapsychology ca. 2003. In a field that largely relies on a corpus from the 50s-80s, where research funding is virtually impossible to get, this is an incredibly up to date book.

Introduction to Tibetan Astrology

Instructor: Wayfarer
Date: August 17, 2019 (Saturday)

Seminar: Topic: Introduction to Tibetan astrology- Saturday, 17 August, 2019 at 7:00pm/1900hr New York Time — text format in the PSC #lecture room (Discord) — Instructor: Wayfarer — Search LECTURE89

Wayfarer: Right, speaking of lectures

Rose Cinderfall: whoa..

Wayfarer: Getting me mad about capitalism is free, it’s the only free thing on this earth, but not what I’m trying to do today lmao

Rainsong: Thanks, ThunderGladiator

Wayfarer: So, I’m not just giving one talk in 2 weeks, I’m giving … two talks. For those of you not familiar with my business, I teach psychic stuff but I also do traditional Tibetan astrology.

ThunderGladiator: @Rainsong wlc

Wayfarer: In fact, I do three things, because I also do consultations &c. but that’s just an extension of my normal stuff here.

Wayfarer: So, astrology is something sort of … psi adjacent. It hangs out in the same sorts of new age spaces and, as prognosticators, astrologers also hang out around diviners and magic, which are other psi-adjacent topics.

Wayfarer: But to be clear, this lecture is entirely self-indulgent, in that I’m just gonna ramble about a thing I know too much about and get a feel for the scope I want to cover at this festival.

Wayfarer: I will make an attempt to make it relevant to psi-stuff here and there, however. If nothing else, it’ll be informational.

Wayfarer: Next week, I think I’ll return to the topic of psi as skill development and pull in some research from a book I got last weekend that has been informative for my PK practice stuff, but this week, it’s turtle astrology.

Wayfarer: But this week…Tibetan astrology! So, first, some background: Tibetan astrology is a combination of cultures coming together. Tibet is situated between China and India. Tibetans considered the Chinese their spiritual inferiors, but they considered India their spiritual superiors. The Tibetan word for Sanskrit literally means “the good language.”

Psychic Abilities As Skills

Instructor: Wayfarer
Date: August 10, 2019 (Saturday)

Seminar: Topic: Psychic abilities as skills – Saturday, 10 August, 2019 at 7:00pm/1900hr New York Time — text format in the PSC #lecture room (Discord) — Instructor: Wayfarer — Search LECTURE88

Wayfarer: Okay, hello, hi, I’ll be back and forth for a bit I think because I’m having another conversation also and also trying to figure out dinner but the good news is this thing is more or less out of a can.

Wayfarer: At the end of the month I’ll be at a festival where I’ll be giving a pair of talks, and by way of organizing those talks I’m going to go ahead and ramble on the topic in here. I’ve roughly outlined it and I’ll roughly follow that outline and if anything pops into my brain I’ll go with it.

Wayfarer: During the actual talk I’d probably pause for questions here and there based on time but since we’re typing on the Internet just go for it. I am not doing this for time, though I do suspect we’ll wrap in an hour or less.

Wayfarer: In part depending on the food thing lmao

Wayfarer: So, I’ve prattled on a bit about psychic abilities being skills and this is basically going to be about what the hell that means. What does it mean that they are skills? Both in terms of how they develop and in terms of what they are?

Biofeedback & Autosuggestion

Instructor: Rainsong
Date: August 3, 2019 (Saturday)

Seminar: Topic: Biofeedback and autosuggestion (suggested by Eclipse) – Saturday, 3 August, 2019 at 6:30pm/1830hr New York Time — text format in the PSC #lecture room (Discord) — Instructor: Rainsong — Search LECTURE87

Rainsong: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen

Rainsong: Welcome to another psionics seminar here at the social club (the usual disclaimers apply, yada yada blah blah blah)

Rainsong: I am experiencing technical difficulties with my keyboard which I have not bothered to trouble-shoot yet, because of more pressing concerns, so my typing will be slower and more awkward than usual, and probably include more than the usual number of typographical errors

Rainsong: In any case, our topic for the evening is ‘Biofeedback and autosuggestion”, kindly suggested by Eclipse

Rainsong: Are there any questions or comments before we dive in?

Eclipse: I find it tends to really help with projection and remote viewing if you get rid of distractions in your own body like that annoying itch or other things.

shadowsword: What do you mean by biofeedback?

Rainsong: Eclipse: excellent idea

Rainsong: Shadowsword: good question

Rainsong: Let’s start with some friendly definitions, so we’re all on the same proverbial page

Rainsong: ‘Biofeedback’ is the use of some kind of electronic monitoring device to track a bodily function (this is the ‘bio-‘ part) that’s normally thought of as involuntary, and use the data from that device (ie, ‘feedback) to train the individual to gain voluntary control of that function

Rainsong: that’d be the strict definition

Rainsong: More broadly, you can use non-electronic devices such as ‘mood rings’ for much the same purpose

Rainsong: And more broadly still, we routinely use biofeedback-like methods to take control of semi-voluntary processes and for some kinds of actually-psionic training

Whisp: topic?

Rainsong: Hiho

Rainsong: We don’t really have one…

Whisp: how about some sensory review?

Rainsong: Meaning?

Whisp: Like you happen to be scanning, or just generally being aware. You find something. How do you determine what you have?

Rainsong: It’s a callibration process, basically.
