  1. Hi, all! I registered a while ago, but haven't been active before. Here is my intro. I've been interested in spirituality for a long time, but mostly done Buddhist and Hindu meditation techniques. I've done a bit of qigong now and then, but struggled with keeping up with it; I get distracted so easily. By recommendation by my friend, I saw a video by Damo Michell about the importance of lowering qi to settle the nervous system. I think that is key, and I hope to be able to learn a lot more about Daoist practices once I can keep up the practices. I hope to find some tips on my journey here. Excited to "meet" you all!
  2. Greetings from a seeker

    Hello, everyone! I'm a 35 year old guy from Norway. My flat mate recommended that I join this group to help me out on my path. Long story short; I have done years of fixing the baggage from my past, by means of therapy. Now, I'm gradually turning my attention to spirituality. I have done a bit of tantric training through The New Tantra (Alex Vartman), and done various kinds of meditative practices (mainly transcendental meditation and recently some buddhist ones) and there is something in the direction of spiritual sexuality that seriously appeals to me. But TNT doesn't have a clear daily practice in the way that I long for. Also, these last few years, I have done a practice called circling, which is a mindfulness practice in relation; i.e. speaking what arises in the moment in connection with others. The practice is awesome, though there are aspects that it doesn't cover. I also did three years of training in energy work, learning to use acupuncture meridians, chakras and other energy systems. I find that body work appeals to me, though not in the form that I was taught. I am still seeking to grow spiritually, physically, sexually, and emotionally, and I want to look into Daoist practices for that purpose, to see if I can find what I'm longing for, but have trouble putting into words.
