Hello RikudouSennin all and All,
Try:http://shangshung.org/store/index.php?m ... rd=6+lokashttp://www.shangshungstore.org/index.ph ... rch_list&s
[match]=all&s[search]=6+loka&s[title]=Y&s[short_desc]=Y&s[full_desc]=Y&s[cid]=0&s[subcats]=Y&s[mid]=0&s[sku]=&s[price_from]=&s[price_to]=&s[weight_from]=&s[weight_to]=http://www.shangshunguk.org/v1/?keyword ... rch=Search
These are the 3 main sources for books for the DC.
It is good to always look in all three places, as many times (as now searching on 6 Lokas) there are different materials available.
The rules are also variable, changing from time to time, and place to place, depending on the functional kindness (which relates to how much practice they have done) of the person in charge at the moment.
In general you can have access to all books if you are a member of the DC.
You can have access to the DVDs and MP3s of the retreats, if you attended that retreat.
If you attest that you listened to the retreat on the webcast, that may be allowed (see above).
In few words, the 6 Loka practice uses creative visualization, and the repetition of mantra, to effect a, non-dual, luminous experience of dissolving the body into light.
I did a 4 month retreat on the 6 Loka practice using the old method, which does not use special body postures for each "loka", and found it completely effective.
I have also tried the new method, which uses special body postures, and found it equally effective.
I think that which method may be more effective, may depend on individual temperament.
There are key points which unlock the practice, like "back very straight" and "completely bright", which you should learn from a Teacher. (Note: I am not a Teacher.)

Hope this helps,
