ToTM #50 Dressed in Drag
The summer intensive of 1986 focussed on whole Body Attention using a variety of techniques. Men attending participated in a morning exercise of cross gender dressing- -dressing and making themselves up as women, and behaving as women do- -for the purpose of experiencing a different set of habits. Mr. Gold speaks of the enormous pressure in primate life towards routinization and the maintenance of equilibrium in order to avoid threat; sexual threat being the greatest of all. He relates this to the chaos in the realm of the Absolute, saying that to really live is to live off-balance.
