Ascetism

Do you practice any form of it?
Is it any good/does it really work?

stoicism is an ascetic practise

I did for some time.
Actually everyone is an ascetic.
Everyone is losing something, always. Honor, time, food, wealth, strength, health.

The longest classical ascetic practice I did was a five day dry fast. You can't do it around people, they don't often understand. I was living outdoors at the time, travelling all around the UK.

No, it's a school of philosophy.
What exactly is ascetic about them?

I'm developing my first ritual - to invoke the energies of the astral triangle and triune goddess. Please critique. For your pleasure:
>Ritual of the T(h)ree Trunk
1.
>in Hoor Par Kraat, facing east, cry IAO
>Stepping into the 1/3 of each sephira surrounding Ieosd, vibrate godnames from Malkuth to Netzach. While assuming the respective elemental grade signs
2.
>retire to Iesod, surrounded by Malkuth, Hod, Netzach
>in the attitude of Pan , raise arms forming a gamma
>feel the horns of pan, the left THELEMA (Hod), right AGAPE
3.
>call the triune goddess. Maiden Malkuth, Crone Hod, Mother Netzach. Join all three in the center
>worship the triple goddess in paean
>IAO to close

Asceticism is the path to trancedance when the caste systems have broken down. It is the modern man's only option, unless you want to join the revolutionary reactionaries.

>>21110966
What type of asceticism do you recommend?

>>21105851
Intermittent fasting. No sex. Planning on not purchasing anything other than the basics for the next month.

>>21110364
