Welcome, You are one hard core noodle . Intense breathing patterns can get you that state. You're combining it with standing. I'm reminded of Morihei Ueshiba mystic and founder of Aikido describing the billowing purple clouds he'd see around himself in his visions. I think you'll find people here with first hand experience similar to yours. I'm not one of them but I admire the dedication and perseverance of those who achieve that level.

  8. I like everything you said except for the 'where necessary, armed for self-defense. I'd rather they call the police or journalists and have cameras out to record infractions. The Right wing militias do look stupid and when they use force it usually backfires. Plus you can't control the extremes in your own movement, the violent ones give the other side ammo to dismiss and tar the entire movement..

I did a seminar with Max many years ago. Quite enjoyed it. While I didn't stick with it, I like having some training in a spontaneous chi gung style under my belt. Its still a late night, washroom practice I use. TDB team Read and review Our Rules: Our Insult Policy- Read it, Live it TheDaoBums' Three Foundations: Eclectic, Egalitarian, Civil.
