    The Land Where Women Rule: Inside China's Last Matriarchy

    "In the Broadly (Vice) documentary China's Last Matriarchy, correspondent Milène Larsson spends a week in Lugu Lake with three generations of Mosuo women to find out more about their unique culture and the realities of matriarchal life."



    About the Filmmaker

    Journalist and news documentary filmmaker, Milène Larsson, has been working for VICE for almost a decade. Initially editor of the Scandinavian edition of VICE Magazine, she moved to London to become European Managing Editor. Now a senior producer at VICE News, she primarily makes news documentaries such as the award winning Israel’s Radical Left, Istanbul Rising, Young and Gay in Putin’s Russia, and the major migration series, Europe or Die. She has appeared on CNN, Sky News, and helped produce VICE on HBO.

    More from the Filmmaker

    China’s one-child policy led to millions of female infanticides—except in a lush valley known as the “Land Where Women Rule.” Located in the foothills of the Himalayas, Lugu Lake is home to China’s Mosuo matriarchy. The region’s 40,000 denizens have come up with a unique family structure that puts women in charge. The Mosuo’s “walking marriages”—in which women can have as many boyfriends as they want throughout their lifetime—replace traditional monogamy, and inheritance passes from mother to daughter. But are the women really in control, and how are men fairing under their rule? Broadly correspondent Milène Larsson spends a week in Lugu Lake with three generations of Mosuo women to find out what life is like in one of the world’s last matriarchies.

    What evoked our interest in China’s Mosuo matriarchy, aside from the obvious rarity of a place where women are in charge, inherit, and are allowed as many lovers as they please, was how their centuries of isolation in the foothills of the Himalayas has allowed them to come up with their very own and unique family structure and relationship model. We wanted to understand how traditional life outside of the monogamous norm works and how it affects women’s, men’s, elderly people’s, and children’s social status.

    About the Collaborator

    Broadly (VICE) is a website and digital video channel devoted to representing the multiplicity of women’s experiences. Through original reporting and documentary film, Broadly, provides a sustained focus on the issues that matter most to women. As one YouTube commenter succinctly put it, “So basicly [sic] vice but excluding anything of relevance that includes men.”

    I watched this video over a year ago now. It has had a profound effect on my view of life and evoked deep phylogentic memories. It was a game changer for me with my Gnostic background. Seeing the Han in that area showed a stark contrast of culture and genetics. I'll let someone tell me which one represents a high culture. Body language is a true language.

    How Elon Musk's SpaceX is changing American space flight

    PBS NewsHour


    It has been nearly a decade since an American space crew last lifted off from U.S. soil in a spacecraft built here. That's expected to change Wednesday afternoon with the relaunch of manned space flight. But the occasion will be very different from past launches, as this time, a private company is leading the way as a NASA partner. Miles O’Brien reports on the potentially “revolutionary” moment.

    Question


    Paul Levy - Coronavirus Crisis: Transformation Through Trauma

    LegaliseFreedom1


    Paul Levy discusses the 2020 Coronavirus Crisis and the deeper psychological and spiritual origins of the virus.

    For almost twenty years, Levy has been writing about an insidious, invisible virus spreading and replicating itself throughout the human species. This deadly disease is a virus of the mind that cultivates and feeds on fear and separation. It is a true game-changer for us to recognize that the Coronavirus is literally a materialization in our world of the previously invisible virus that exists deep within the collective unconscious of humanity. What is playing out in Covid-19 can help us begin to see the deeper underlying pandemic - a collective psychological infection - that has been wreaking havoc on our species behind the scenes and beneath our awareness from time immemorial.

    One of the real dangers of the current pandemic is for us to feel helpless, overwhelmed with despair, impending doom and pessimism, a state which cuts us off from our agency and creative power. Strangely enough, the hardest of the hard sciences - quantum physics - comes to our aid as medicine to protect us from this psychological danger. A little insight into the essence of what quantum physics reveals to us can be the best anti-depressant imaginable. By revealing that we live in a thoroughly quantum universe, quantum physics is literally placing the keys to our future in our own hands. The question is, do we know how to wisely use the gift that is being freely offered to us?

    An added incentive listen for those that listened to the above video ...

    Via Paul Levy



    First published April 11, 2013.

    Paul Levy discusses his book Dispelling Wetiko -- Breaking the Curse of Evil.

    There is a contagious psycho-spiritual disease of the human soul, a parasite of the mind, that is currently manifesting itself in the form of unprecedented conflicts and crises on a global scale. This collective psychosis or mental virus -- which Native Americans have called wetiko - covertly operates through the unconscious blind spots in the human psyche, rendering us oblivious to our own madness and compelling us to act against our own best interests.

    Wetiko distorts our perceptions by stealth and subterfuge, acting through us while simultaneously remaining hidden. Unconstrained by conventional laws of time and space, this 'bug' in the system deceives us by working with the projective tendencies of our mind to appear external to and other than ourselves. Thus, the conflicts and crises which threaten the collapse of political, social and economic systems, and perhaps even of the biosphere itself, are nothing less than a revelation of our own internal darkness, the side of our nature that we all too often deny. Quantum physics is now revealing to us the dreamlike nature of reality and, as with our dreams at night, events in the so-called waking world are symbolically reflecting a condition deep within the psyche of humanity.

    Drawing on insights from Jungian psychology, shamanism, alchemy, spiritual wisdom traditions, and personal experience, Levy shows us that hidden within the venom of wetiko is both a profound truth and an antidote, which once recognized can help us awaken and restore sanity to society. Whether wetiko destroys our species or catalyses a deeper process of global awakening depends upon recognizing what it is revealing to us about ourselves.

    Paul Levy is a pioneer in the field of spiritual emergence and an innovator in the field of dreaming. A Tibetan Buddhist practitioner for over thirty years, he has studied with some of the greatest spiritual masters of Tibet and Burma. He is the author of The Madness of George W Bush: A Reflection of Our Collective Psychosis, as well as Wetiko: The Greatest Epidemic Sickness Known to Humanity.
