Ethos II

Mythopoetics: Emotion, Archetype, and Imagination


THE EMOTION, ARCHETYPE, AND IMAGINATION ETHOS PROGRAM addresses the deep influence of studies in the imagination on the somatic practices of the MogaDao tradition (the technes). In MogaDao's practices, "Western" ideas of soul and the primacy of the imagination are understood Post-Daoistically, not as ideas alone but as somatic experiences in movement and in meditation. This program focuses on the imagination as the foundation of healing, if healing is considered in the broadest sense to describe a soul's embrace of its own experience through forms of fruition and consummation, challenge and change.

honoring the transmission-based tradition of mogadao

A transmission-based tradition means that teachers—and the bodies of teachers, and the body of knowledge that MogaDao teachers represent—are the only source of the teachings of MogaDao. In other words, there is no "media" available with regard to the practices of MogaDao.—there are only the teachers. MogaDao teachers are not permitted to record their online teachings and offer them to students as study tools outside of the live experience of their online teachings (streaming). This means that students, too, are part of this honor code, which establishes the MogaDao tradition as rather unique in the modern age. In some 30 years of teaching, Zhen Dao herself has never made videos of the vast practices of MogaDao; no material outside of the direct interface of her body has ever been available. Going online at this time, under the current circumstances, is a form of flowing with the Dao, of following necessity. However, this means that students taking her online classes—and the online classes of other MogaDao teachers—must participate in that timeworn honor code of non-recording. Zhen Dao, the MogaDao teachers,  and the tradition of MogaDao are deeply grateful for your understanding and compliance in this regard.
