Her synthetic spaces examine tangible and intangible structures of authority and its manifestations in a built environment. The final pieces gesture to how intangible spaces within us — such as memory, knowledge and perception of time — are controlled and regimented. Park C.

We use both digital and analog. First and foremost we produce music for ourselves. Electronic music is an art for them; not a science. Watching their live show reveals how their music connects with crowds on an emotional level, and how its melodic and textural depth works in such synergy with its rhythmic backbone. The whole thing is controlled with one iPad each which allows us to work very fast and intuitively.
Mutual friends, interests and in general a similar perception of music and life brought us together. With an open mind and a vast range of music knowledge, she knows how to connect on another level when playing her music to the crowd. Her original production spans broad dance floor territory, from Techno, Deep House to Experimental Electronica.
Finding the balance between light and dark with both her solo work and as Slumber has kept her inspired and able to express both arrays of emotions through her sound. An extremely humble and gracious human being, Daniel Cowel has built an international name for himself with his ZERO residency opening sets, carefully warming rooms and crafting slow boiling vibes, each set individually handled with delicate care and respect for whoever comes next. Yet, when his moments to shine arrive, Daniel Cowel delivers, giving us some incredible memories. In , the year of the Rooster, YJC threw our very first queer lunar new year party.
We were forged in fire, giving shape to our chosen family in the making and unmaking of things. This last year, , was the year of the earth dog; when what remained from the devastation was nurtured. It was a year of grounding and healing, where people built anew and rooted in what had survived. For us this year is about warm, generous love.
It is about believing in the strength of our collective dreams, and scheming with our communities to manifest prosperity and joy. It is a year of reaping what you sow. The party is meant to center queer people of color. We are asking everyone to be financially transparent, as no POC folks will be turned away.
We will have clear community guidelines in the space that we ask everyone to follow. For context, the Lunar New Year is the first day of a calendar year that cycles with the moon.
Hindu, Bengali, Buddhist, Islamic and traditional East Asian calendars are based on this system, and many of us in the U. The new year is a time of family reunion and we want to reinterpret this tradition by celebrating with our chosen families and our queer diasporic families. Come and celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Ballroom Throwbacks.
What started as an idea progressed into a Youtube Channel, then a brand and a business. With well over million views and counting BrtbTV is one of the fundamental windows into the underground culture. Reaction to new Impression. The Ashram. The centre of radiating Love. The medium of loving Distribution. The mode of divine Relationship. The key to Understanding. These words are probably not what you might anticipate, but they will open up to you a group and mental approach to realisation, and that is the way for you to proceed.
Your keen analytical mind will know what to do with these matters. I would suggest, for the process to be employed, that you approach each phrase each month with three questions. Let me illustrate for you what I mean by taking two words out of the six:. Humanity What does humanity mean to me in reality? What new development faces the human family? Can I contribute by my thinking to this new unfoldment? Recognition What does recognition mean to me? What new recognitions confront all disciples? How can I develop the power to recognise the new, the divine, and the reality which is already here?
From these suggestions you can adapt three questions to each of the remaining words.
More titles to consider
It will be apparent to you, my beloved brother, that what I am really doing is training you for a special piece of service—the service of thoughtform building in the New Age. This you can do if you will free yourself from prejudices and  from criticism of certain individuals.
This service you can do in the quiet of your home and without undue effort, and you will learn to do this because you love and will love increasingly. I enfold you within my aura and with security, and from that point of safety I ask you to go forth upon the work of the Ashram. I would like to start this instruction with a word of commendation. The entering stream of love is much more potent now than it was. Years ago and even months ago this was not so. Today, the second ray strains if I may call them so in your equipment are far more dominant than heretofore. Had you realised how over-potent was your first ray astral body?
It conditioned you unduly and it hindered you from seeing all around the picture of your relation to humanity. It forced you almost fanatically to adhere to certain ideas and concepts which were emotionally aroused and which were related principally to the people and the relatives with whom you associated. You frequently failed to see life from the angle of the ordinary man and from the effect which karma produced in the life of the average citizen.
You thought in terms of one group. This you are learning to negate and the loneliness of your present life has greatly aided your withdrawal from this astral concentration upon a group thoughtform. I have earlier told you that you are being trained to work with thoughtform creating processes. Hence, another reason for the long hours by yourself which characterise your life at this time and which will be expressive of your days for the remainder of your life.
To this desire of your soul you must happily reconcile yourself. Because of this planned training—planned with the consent of your soul and of me, your Master—you are already peculiarly susceptible to group thoughtforms; you must learn increasingly to work under the influence of the Law of Abstraction. This is a law which is ever present in the world in relation to the processes of death. The aspect of its importance in connection with physical death is deemed of slight importance in comparison to its emphasis in connection with the world of thought. The training given to a disciple when he enters the periphery of an Ashram lays an emphatic emphasis upon the need of abstracting one's consciousness from phase after phase of thought.
The lesson of detachment in relation to one's possible emotional attachments is hard to learn, but a disciple must have mastered much of it, prior to entering the Ashram. When he does this, the inference is that detachment is now one of his established processes.

However, the process of abstracting one's mind from all imposed thoughtforms—imposed by one's background, one's tradition and one's social group—is a very difficult and subtle undertaking. It must definitely be learned, prior to mastering the science of thoughtform building. The disciple has to stand free from mental impression and mental concepts before he can successfully create under direction of the Ashram. When the Law of Abstraction is wielded consciously by you from within the Ashram, you will discover that it has as it might have been expected various meanings and policies which will function on the different planes of consciousness, such as:.
Death or the effect of the Law of Abstraction upon the physical plane. This can refer to the abstraction of the life principle from the physical body in response to soul command; it can refer to the death of an old physical plane relationship; it can also refer to a cycle of physical plane conditioning or circumstance, to the termination of a relation to a physical plane group, or to the abstraction of an interest regarded hitherto as basic. The termination of an outgoing affection towards a person or a group of persons upon the astral plane.
This can precipitate a definite emotional crisis which brings about the withdrawal of devotion to people or causes. This statement covers the intensity of the emotion,  expressed in many and varied directions. Emotional abstraction is the hardest lesson which a disciple has to master. The severing of connection with specific lines of thought.
This may refer to the preconceived need which may dawn increasingly upon the disciple as he draws closer to the Ashram to which he is assigned; it may and will lead him to sever connection with schools of thought and with social, political, religious and circumstantial thoughtforms using the word "circumstantial" to mean the mental conditioning brought about by circumstance , prior to being immersed in any ashramic thoughtform. These specific abstractions are being rapidly learned by you; you should therefore enter your next life infinitely more liberated than you now are, and should function freer for service.
Your present life condition is very favourable to your progress along these lines, and this I think you know, even if it displeases you to recognise the truth. The entire process is one of abstraction, involving pain. There is a close relation between pain and the law with which I am dealing.

It is the Law of Abstraction which lifts a disciple out of the three worlds of human endeavour; it is this same law which brings about the upward drive which all units of life express and the search of all of them for identification with the ONE; it is with this law that you—along with all disciples—must learn to work. I would give you the following words for meditative reflection:. Abstraction 5. Detachment 6. Liberation 7. Relinquishment 8. The OM. All these words embody certain major preparatory lessons. You will note how increasingly, as this particular group  develops, I have ceased to give stanzas and symbolic phrases and have endeavoured to centre your attention upon words.
I would have you deal with these words from the purely physical angle, from the quality angle, and from the purpose angle, as well as that of divine identification. Please use the process outlined for disciples in The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Approach them with consideration from the angle of personality detachment, from the angle of soul detachment, particularly when the antahkarana can be consciously used. In this way, great divine potencies can be used, and as one abstraction after another is mastered an increasing liberation will be sensed by you.
Keep full notes and in a year's time if you care to do so bring these monthly notes all together and write a paper upon the Law of Abstraction as it makes its presence felt in the mind of a typical disciple. This will be of service to you and also to your group brothers. Strive to cultivate a happy spirit. Let not life, loneliness or any circumstances unduly depress you. Dwell not too much upon world horror, but aim—in meditation—at conveying strength and wisdom to the world leaders as they seek as they do to bring order out of chaos.
I would like to see you resume your work in the teaching group. You have the time, my brother, and a definite service which you needs must render would be good for you. Your help is needed. You can, if you so desire, move forward into a clearer and closer relation to me and to my Ashram. You must, however, bear in mind that every step forward into the light and into a closer relation to the Hierarchy is made under the influence of the Law of Abstraction. Be strong, therefore, and know that the powerful qualities of your second ray soul relate you to D.
Take them into your daily meditation upon the plane of the soul, and remember that you three form an inner triangle which has certain spiritual activities for an esoteric objective for which this present incarnation is only preparatory. My thought is yours, my brother, and I am not abstracting  or withdrawing my love or my attentive care of your interests.

Nietzsche and Anarchy
The rarest compliment was knowingly made to you by A. A stable vibration is the keynote of the universe; surety is the sign of the Knower. These are two qualities of which you are in possession to the point of expression; I would have you realise it and count upon their registration in the Ashram you so much love. In your hours of loneliness, and when you realise that life for you is mainly a waiting process, you are apt to forget these two facts which I have brought to your attention.

Fight not against disability or against what the world calls "old age. Why not welcome Transition? Learn to glory in experience, which is the gift of wise old age, and look forward to the Great Adventure which confronts you. You know well—in your highest moments—that that Transition means realisation without any physical plane limitations. My brother, the ray of your astral body is the first; the failure, weakness or sin of the astral body is delusion.
In your case, it is the delusion of pride—social pride—and of this you must rid yourself. It is not a mental quality, for if it were, sound thinking would soon show the futility of social pride. In the eyes of the Masters of the Wisdom, there are only human beings at various stages of unfoldment, of developing selfishness or of unfolding service. There are no classes such as the world recognises, neither is there any age, except the age of the soul; that need cause you no concern; your soul  is old in its expression on the physical plane, and you know this to be so.
Pay not undue attention to the physical vehicle. Its preservation is of no moment and can—as in your case—become of too prominent importance. The time of your liberation is set by karmic law; this ever determines the demise of the real man within the body, but if the physical body is unduly nurtured, and if it becomes the recipient of undue care, it can hold that real man in prison in defiance of karmic law. That is a sorry spectacle to watch, for it means that the physical elemental is assuming power.
Be careful in this connection, for the ray of your physical body would easily produce this situation. Not so long ago—two years ago, I believe—I gave you nine words for your mature consideration. Today, I will give you twelve seed thoughts which for the remainder of your life should govern your morning reflection, following a definite process of linking with me and with my Ashram. Here are the seed thoughts:. Looking forward. Life purpose, persistent ever. The triangle: yourself, D. Eternal persistence. Freedom from partisanship. Future Mastership.
These ideas are suggestive and would prove fruitful and lead to much expansive thinking. You are in my Ashram and for ever have naught to fear. The path of the pledged disciple is one of constant rending. The disciple does the rending. You have not yet  achieved the beauty of acceptance—the acceptance that releases.
Project your values to a higher sphere and know that nothing matters connected with the earthly role of life, save learning understanding. To that attain. There are three souls who can in differing ways lead to achievement of your liberation: one, close to you, because she needs a guiding, loving understanding heart; one you will meet and needs must save; the other is Myself.
