  1. Now that it's summer here in the states, anybody have any good G&T recipes?
  2. Dan tien/solar plexus/tinnitus

    If I focus on my crown I get those same high pitched sounds, and sometimes it feels like my whole head is getting bathed in energy, similar to the way you describe it. Is it just tapping into the vibrational qualities of that chakra?
  3. Gary Clyman - Black Diamond

    Are you, AllenIverson, in fact Gary Clyman himself?
  4. Stillness-Movement Qigong basics steps

    good question. i recently purchased Lomax' book on Amazon and was interested in SM, too. Any elaboration about SM technique from somebody would be greatly appreciated!
  5. I saw this recent interview where Chunyi Lin mentions healing his injured knee (4:15)
  6. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

    has anybody used either of these hemi-sync guided meditations from Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche? https://hemi-sync.com/product/sacred-space-the-practice-of-inner-stillness-album/ https://hemi-sync.com/product/healing-through-awareness-album/
  7. Qigong ranking

    Yan Xin Qigong had state support back then, it seems very likely to be very high on that list!
  8. i've begun xiang gong myself lately, like it a lot. another suggestion might be the seated version of baduanjin
  9. I find Vrikshasana to be a very stimulating pose. I've often read that this pose helps stimulate the muladhara, but in my experience it seems to really stimulate the crown and third eye centers. I wonder why this is? my only guess is that the hands above the head is some kind of mudra.
  10. 'for the best night's sleep in the whole wide world, "visit" my pillow.com!'
  11. bumping this thread (again). I've been listening to Yan Xin's qi-emitting lectures almost daily for a while now. the qi transmission just listening to the audio is very real.in fact, just yesterday i was reading the yan xin book "secrets and benefits of internal qigong cultivation" and i was able to experience a similar qigong state.
  12. Emergency situation, seeking advice (content may be triggering)

    that's the risk when you follow the white rabbit down the rabbit hole, isn't it?.... that's why i took up qigong to get back into my body. as a result i was able to bring my attention away from the higher centers and into my lower body, which greatly seemed to "regulate" my psychic climate.
  13. Tea Appreciation Study Group

    The health benefits mostly, and I wanted to deepen my meditation practice. I also didn't like the buzz coffee gave me in the mornings. as for Oolongs, I normally just by some of the varieties available from Rishi Tea like jade oolong or iron goddess of mercy but i plan on expanding that very soon

    I gave up coffee two years ago and have been drinking matcha every morning since. I've recently taken a liking toward Oolong teas midday
