  1. Step-by-step solo cultivation...

    Thanks... Thank you for that thread. From what little I was able to distill from that thread, the idea is to embrace the fact that it takes awhile, not flit about like a butterfly looking for the highest practice, whatever that is (something I've been guilty of in the past), embrace where you're at, and most of all, find a teacher. My plan to begin is vigorous exercise, with concentration on toning the abdomen, and testicle breathing... does that sound safe and sane? e.g. stay away from Kunlun for now?
  2. Step-by-step solo cultivation...

    Thank you for your replies... I surfed around AYP for a little while-- that site seems pretty dense, but I will continue looking... I do not get the A/C comment... Regarding my question... is, say, the first Kunlun posture a good place to start?
  3. Hi all-- this is my first post-- although I've been lurking on these forums for quite some time... I have practiced seminal retention for the last few years with mixed results-- I recently came across some data that rang true for me-- how the energy must be recirculated... or it will just find it's way out again (hence failure)... I just purchased Taoist Secrets of Love. Am looking for a daily solo cultivation practice. In the book it mentions several. Looking for a good one to start with... My apologies if this has been posted a million times-- I did some searching and couldn't readily find my particular question... Thanks in advance, boaz

    Thanks for pointing the way... I like my tea with extra chi...
  5. Hello from Venice CA

    Hi all from Venice CA, I am a seeker of things spiritual-- the bulk of my energy work has been with Kundalini Yoga-- and it always "blew me out" so to speak, e.g. the energy was too strong and I couldn't control it. I have since been on the path of sexual retention with mixed results... Read lots of messages here having to do with sexual retention-- just purchased Mantak Chia's book "Taoist Secrets of Love"-- was wondering where I would post a question about what technique(s) to begin with... best, boaz
