"potala palace" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.

"And if you do varying more complicated practices, you can even straight up shift your state. It's almost kind of gas pedal brakes. And I was like, oh, that's really interesting. And mother nature encoded it. So if we can find ways to tweak it or change it, that's a very strong intervention. It's free. That's free, right? Zero tag. And the same with sexuality, which has all sorts of taboos and strongly held feelings around it. But if you just look again from the evolutionary imperative, if we don't find a way to procreate, none of us would be here. And for the overwhelming majority of human experience, there weren't instruction manuals. No, right? And there certainly aren't for anyone any primate cousins or anywhere else in the animal kingdom. So you're like, okay, so that is purely hormones and incentive structures baked into our mammalian bodies to encourage that behavior will not surprisingly, you know, evolution through the kitchen sink at pair bonding to ensure that we did it. It runs in governs most of our lives on autopilot, often to negative effect, lots of trauma, lots of grief, lots of unhappiness, but if you can untie the puppet strings of evolutionary and printing, what can you do with all of the sexual nervous system. And John Lilly, the famous renegade University of Pennsylvania, neuroscientist back in the day. Mapped in the early 50s that the entire basically pleasure centers and network of a human nervous system map one to one with the sexual arousal system, not because there's anything kind of sordid or salacious about it. That was mother nature's job one. And then all of our other pleasure encoding and sensation seeking is mapped onto that preexisting circuitry. So that's another one. And then you get into the body. And sexuality is to speak to that. It's something we really haven't seen as a vehicle for awakening. And for connection and other than sort of the obvious ways. But this is something that's been in ancient traditions kama sutra from India with this Tibetan vajrayana. Raja Yana practices of tantric yoga and I remember being in Tibetan monastery up in northern India which was the abbot of the bund tradition, which was the pre Buddhist indigenous shamanic tradition of Tibet. And he was very cute. He was probably in his mid 80s and he's a monk. And I'm hanging out with him and lunch. He's so excited to show me this book that he has. And I know this guy sort of sensibly enlightened master. He was really, he was a dialysis meditation teacher. He brought over the Himalayas the text of the bunch edition and single handedly rebuilt the whole religion. And he had this book that he wanted to show me which was of the Dalai Lama's secret temple. And behind the potala palace in Lhasa and sitting in the island in the Lake. Yes, is it Lake? And then there's this island and only the Dalai Lama could go there and essentially it was this tantric sexual sort of murals. It sort of explaining how to wake up through sexuality, which that was kind of funny to be Buddhist monastery, but they're all into that. Oh yeah, absolutely. The 7th Dalai Lama was actually like the lord Byron of the Himalayas. He was a total dissolute dilettante. On that little island. Yeah, incredible. So that's sort of a different framework than most of us think about with sexuality. And I don't want to sort of talk about how do we start to activate that because most of us haven't even really touched the surface of our bodies capacity to feel to sense to experience can through sexuality. So I want to come back to that. But going back to the next one, which is embodiment. Yeah, so I mean, there's all sorts of, I mean, obviously, the more integrated and aligned and balanced we are in a physical bodies, the healthier and happier we tend to be. There's a whole field of embodied cognition kind of supporting that how our bodies and brains are affects our hearts and minds, and that's fairly straightforward. Sort of establish science at this point. There are several, in particular, the sort of have, you know, most folks don't know about them and they have really helpful balancing effect to our whole system. And one is the sort of our fascia, the sort of sliding surfaces of our body that is arguably an interconnected sort of organ toes to tops of our scalp. And if anybody's ever seen chicken, or you've ever had meat from the butcher and you kind of see that white almost fill me layer, right? That's the fascia. And typically for most of us when we get wounded or injured, it freezes and lands to prevent injury, but then when the injury is healed, it kind of stays fused. And keeping those sliding surfaces supple and fluid is really, really helpful for all sorts of health. Yoga. Yeah. Massage. Yeah, I mean, even the big trend these days in theragun and percussive massage in ways to kind of break up those tissues. So that's a beautiful way to take metaphors like I'm centered or I'm balanced or I'm flexible in my life or in my relationships and actually just make it palpable and physical. And then it's so interesting. Jamie, because I just, as a doctor, I see so many people disembodied. Not living in their body. We are so gifted with this extraordinary organism to feel the sense to do to move to play, to experience, and so many people are so disconnected. And it makes sense given our trauma culture. One in four people are sexually abused. And then there's all the other kinds of traveling experiences children. And so in order to survive, we disconnect from our bodies. This is why somehow someone can get from a normal weight as a kid to 600 pounds. It doesn't happen overnight. And how did that happen? It's because we're so disconnected. And I think these practices, again, are accessible. We don't learn them. We're not taught them. They're not part of our culture, but they are part of other cultures of those Tai Chi or qigong or yoga or there's kinds of martial arts or dance or movement that have always been in human culture, but we sort of go into clubs and party, but that's about it. Yeah, yeah, and then even a couple of sort of big metronomes to our entire physiological systems, as you well know, the endocannabinoid system, which most folks aren't even aware of. In fact, I think there was a study maybe about ten years ago, but it said that 90% of U.S. physicians weren't even kind of conversant in it as a system, or its impact, but I mean, there's been phenomenal studies in Israel on that since the 1960s Rafael matum is the pioneering physician. He actually did it with NIH grants from the U.S. for that whole time. And it's the system into which cannabis interacts. But it's not because of cannabis. That's already had that going for it. Yeah. The body, I mean, sea sponges from 500 million years ago have an endocannabinoid system. So the fact is, is that it governs everything from bone growth to stem cells to brain health.

"In the duo's first attempt to enter Tibet in 1917, they were discovered and expelled. World War I was in full swing, and they didn't want to return to Europe yet. So they abandoned Tibet for the time being and continued on to Japan and Korea. After Korea, Alexandra and F four went to the kumbha monastery in China. For two years, they lived among the monks and translated Tibetan holy books. Still, Alexandra wanted to see the city of Lhasa. While Alexandra was in Japan, she'd met a monk who disguised himself as a Chinese doctor so he could sneak into Lhasa. His story inspired Alexandra to enact a plan. She covered her skin in soot and more yak hair pigtails to disguise herself. In this disguise, she and a four set out for Tibet again. Despite being banished during earlier attempts. They crossed the Gobi desert, braved uncharted jungles and winding mountain paths. Every step of the way they were at risk from wild animals and inclement weather. But soon they closed in on the lush valley that housed Lhasa and the potala palace. In 1924, they entered Lhasa at long last. There, Alexandra saw some incredible feats of human spirituality. She later wrote of telepathic messages sent between masters and pupils. People who ran for days in a state of meditation. And rituals meant to guide the dead down the right spiritual paths. She got the opportunity to tour the palace, and she even snuck some photographs. But after two months, Alexandra and a four were discovered. They escaped the city before they could be arrested and made the arduous journey back to Europe. At one point, they were in such Dire Straits they had to boil the leather from their shoes to have something to eat. In 1925, Alexandra and F four arrived in France. Two years later, Alexandra published her first book about her experience, titled my journey to Lhasa. And Alexandra wasn't finished traveling. In 1937, she went back to China, Japan and India. When her husband Philippe died three years later, she arranged passage home to manage his affairs. When she made it home to France in 1946, she reluctantly settled down for good. Alexandra's travels made her a celebrity. Over the subsequent 40 years, she would write more than 30 books about her excursions. Her home became a waypoint for young pilgrims and travelers. In 1955, Alexander's adopted son a four passed away, plunging Alexandra into a deep depression. She became reclusive and bad tempered. Still, she longed to travel. At the age of a hundred, she started planning yet another trip to Germany, then Russia than New York. But her housekeeper convinced her to abandon the idea. Insisting there was no way she'd be able to endure it. Alexandra passed away on September 8th, 1969. She was nearly a 101 years old. Though Alexandra had been accused many times of faking her many outlandish tales, even while she was alive. Her story and determination to follow her own path have inspired countless others after her. In total, she traveled more than 18,000 miles. All month were highlighting dynamos.
