Just one more thing about the Yuen Method; I know it's off-topic, but I feel so strongly that someone might benefit greatly--
After having studied this method for awhile, the closest thing I can equate it to, is when an exceptional artist does a sculpture, and is totally in alignment with the creation so that all s/he needs to do is take away what Isn't the sculpture. Lots of Inuit artists have expressed how they make art, this way--saying, "all I do is take away what isn't the X."
I'm not interested in learning any method to 'add' anything to a person--like how to perfect coping, or strategizing in the world.
But what this method does is take away all the accumulated 'stuff' that isn't true to the real and pure Human being. A wise teacher told me "all healing is release form the past". That sums it up.
In that sense, in the sense of real freedom, YM shares the principles that are behind water fasting; we use Water Fasting to let the body 'take away' what it doesn't want or need, and to allow for a 'reset'. The physical body has great wisdom, and is always seeking rejuvenescence (which includes removing waste, and recycling).
