Ethos IV
Numina: the body spiritual
Ritual and Practice

The NUMINA: THE BODY SPIRITUAL ETHOS PROGRAM focuses on the ways that the human being can embody the numinous or spiritual dimension of being through forms of sacred somatics. In addition to the deepest study of the most complex and spiritualized forms of the MogaDao tradition—the MogaDao Qigong Seasonal Transition Forms, or The Cosmic Soma—students learn the religiosity (the spiritual and sacrosanct aspects) of Post-Daoist 5-Realms Theory. The program combines the sacredest qigong forms with the Numina Prayer of Ethea Yoga asana, Empty Sky Meditation, as well as sacred theater and sacred performance in relationship to the spiritual life.

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.
