#39 – Pana-Wave

No Comments

In this episode we delve into the convoluted and unusual world of the Shinshukyo, which are often mistranslated as “Japanese New Religions”. Pana-Wave is one of the Shinshukyo that illustrates very well both the instinctive feeling that people have for loss-of-Nature and also what the Miasma can do to the responses they come up with.

We head at last to Ancient Greece, and look at the attempts of Thales to challenge the miasma of his time.
We also discuss how he agreed with (or perhaps even originated the ideas of) Genesis in a way that modern Christians generally don’t.

Our sister podcast, Woven Energy, has just released a new episode that I think Heretics listeners would enjoy because it has lots of fascinating insights into religions and spirit dance. In this episode you’ll learn about:

  1. Yan Yi – a spirit dance tradition from Malaysia which is taught alongside the martial art of Xing Yi.
  2. What the terms Qi, Shen, Xin and Yi mean in Damon’s martial teaching and how they are expressed in Yan Yi.
  3. How to tell real from fake spirit dance.
  4. The Tanna island in the Pacific and the strange John Frum religious tradition that evolved there.
  5. What Cargo Cults are and what the Prince Philip Movement is.
