  1. Damo Mitchell Free MCO Course

    You are right, the arts you mention also affect the body in this way, so yes, no point in looking further.
  2. Damo Mitchell Free MCO Course

    Actually, no, it does. Measurable, on physiological processes. Some are mentioned in the current Nei Dan thread, the one with the extremely long heading.

    @Feng69 It was just that this thread started to become a teacher-bashing thread. If you look through the internet, you will see that other teachers, including Chinese, more or less look their age, so it is unfair to ask of Damo Mitchell to look a certain way unless there is overwhelming evidence that others can live up to it. Isn't one's hair supposed to turn black as well? That one might be extra hard for Damo to live up to 😁
  4. Damo Mitchell Free MCO Course

    Do you have photos available featuring other teachers of neidan, so that we can see these rejuvenateing aspects here?
  5. Damo Mitchell Free MCO Course

    Obviously, I made that post up.
  6. Yes, and it goes by both names in articles, just to confuse things. Yes, I teach this subject at a medical university so I am familiar with the relevant references.
  7. Damo Mitchell Free MCO Course

    Yes....? I'm all ears. Or all awareness, if you like 😁

    I can solve this issue. Yesterday, the Lotus Nei Gong completed a survey including long- and short term students. Among the long term students, 87% have a fully functional LDT, and 13% failed to understand how to fill in the survey. Among the short time students who had started on the dan tian gong, after six months 63% reported signs in line with developing an LDT, 12 % didn't feel a thing, and 25% had Quit practicing for various reasons,(including anxiety and "I realized I am already perfected, so I do not have to practice").

  9. @anshino23Have you looked in to the anti-inflammatory reflex pathway and the glymphatic system? Daoist practices activate these a lot, through multiple physiological mechanisms.

    What objective or testifiable support for this would you accept?
  11. The Good Old Days

    Just check the oldest threads in this section, he will pop up. Quite a lot of caps lock, if I recall right.
  12. If... ... Probably. What if there are differences? Things you do not see in translated books not exactly talking about the details that might matter? Then you will see the similarities (which are there) but not the differences.
  13. [DDJ Meaning] Chapter 50

    @[email protected] and we are interested in the source to this version as well 👋
  14. Hi... What is Dao Bums really..?

    Yes, people have a wide spread of interests, and there are many ways to center oneself and find peace. Or experiences, whatever.... 😁
  15. If you say so. But, actually, taking examples from persons that manage to do a thing is not the same as seeing those that cannot. But that doesn't fit in the philosophy you are posting here.
  16. Hurt people are everywhere. I think that it is distasteful to glorify their pain and imply that they are weak when they cannot become strong and happy as a result of that pain.
  17. Post traumatic stress syndrome? Any number of problems related to autonomic dysregulation? Prediction related issues (for the nerds 😜)? That's your opinion, which is not based on things like medical experience.
  18. So, you basically made that one up.
  19. A person that experience traumatic events that push them beyond their ability to return to a flexible and balanced state will become weaker and less resilient over time, with reduced ability to cherish and love. So you take out the ones that have above average resilience, and create an idealized image from that. In a similar vein, you miss-quote the Stanford prison experiment, and you have actually read the Idiot's guide to..... Wow. You will fit right in here, welcome!
  20. Yes, but I was hoping for a description of the process.
  21. And you have a physiological reference on that snippet of fact? Or, you could just explain the mechanism of that a bit more?
  22. Your opinion about reiki?

    And it is usually linked to esoteric buddhism, although the power symbol absolutely has an equivalent in thunder rites.
