  1. The I of the storm

    Nice text, thanks for sharing. Have you found out who is the observed or who is the observer? Sounds a bit scary
  2. Qigong or taichi?

    Sorry to ask such a question but I can't help it . what do you think is better in the long run for developing health and energy, qigong or taichi? I know it is also a very generic and abstract question, as there are many different types of qigong and even of taichi. But what is your opinion about that?
  3. What happens to suicides?

    Be strong friend. And let me quote a spanish poet: "What is life? A frenzy. What is life? An illusion, a shadow, a fiction; and the greatest good is small; that all life is a dream, and dreams are dreams." Hope it helps
  4. Everyone post some favorite quotes!

    "the world is nothing but change. our life is only perception" (Marcus Aurelius) "When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: The people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous, and surly. They are like this because they can't tell good from evil" (Marcus Aurelius)

  7. Yi Jin Jing

    There are very different versions of yi jin jing, muscle tendon change. In Damo Mitchell latest book is there another version of the set? And how is it? Maybe I should consider buying it
  8. Taoist meditation techniques

    Thanks Walker, fantastic response. I do agree it is important to have refreshing and dreamless sleep. So I really think this technique is not optimal for beginners. Probably an error from the teacher, who i don't deem very serious. She was also very eager on receiving her money after the class. Although this seems to be a generic property of qigong teachers here in Europe. All i know are like that

    I couldn't agree more, especially after having seen the ugly demon

  12. Taoist meditation techniques

    The demon made a noise similar to a snake. But i couldn,t say exactaly what his face looked like. I don't have a picture of the teacher, and it is not on a website as far as i know

    A woman. I don't think you know her
  14. Taoist meditation techniques

    Thanks! I will not do this med again probably. When the demon touched me i started yelling and i woke up scared. I have no idea why the demon was there. It is probably a deep fear, but I don't fully understand it. I love rexaled sleeping but this med caused this
  15. Yesterday I went to a qigong class. The teacher taught a daoist meditation technique very simple and powerful. I think she said it was called "the breath of the wind" but i am not sure. You just had to sit cross legged in the standard position with palms up. Inhaling through the nose and looking 45 degrees up, and exhaling through the mouth and looking 45 degrees down, always with the eyes closed. She said that if we did that we would have more vivid and realistic dreams. And it is true. I have had a very vivid nightmare as I never had before. I saw a demon touching me while i was sleeping. I could see him, feel him and even hear him. Who was this f... demon? I think i will not do this med again as i am prone to have nightmares. But now i am curious about other taoist meds so simple and powerful as this one. Do you know any to share here? And does anybody know this technique?
