  1. Hi Mandy
    I would be interested to know if you have tried OM ing yourself?

    I thought I might try it myself and have found it very healing it is certainly not about group mastabas ion.
    My experience has been of a gentle respectful man holding space for ,me to connect deeply within myself for healing and transformation. I have been having regular sessions for a few weeks now and am finding wonderfully restorative for my 50 plus vagina which between you and me was getting a bit dried up. I am now experiencing a new vibrancy and aliveness and there is no longer a new for hormonal treatment.

    Your video is humorous however it is a completely misleading account of a valuable practice which is on the increase around the world and is empowering women. I suggest you give it a whirl sometime.

  2. Welcome , To the average it seems false, to the higher female it’s true

    For many years the general has trained in America , having reached a higher level
    I’m bring this century’s old technic to Australia

    Many disbelieve many ridicule
    This makes the generals work harder, but
    Having done many training sessions with many
    Followers , I’m ready to change your life

    Words like “cosmic” ” hallelujah “and ” I’m in the zone ” will become everyday sounds shouted from the hills of Byron

    Places are limited so please send me a sign ,
    The general and his army of cosmic fingers are waiting , ohm bi mar
