    You can cook it like a steak or a stew, both are great. I've tried to steam it, it was delicious too

    joking aside is beef heart a really powerful food and it's nothing so strange. The meat is actually just muscle, very low fat and tastes wonderful; moreover it's quite cheap, so you can afford it to buy it organic

  10. Psychomagic

    exactly, that's the book I read: Psychomagic: The Transformative Power of Shamanic Psychotherapy I'm more into taoism than other arts of healing; still it's an interesting point of view.
  11. Psychomagic

    I've read a book of Jodorowsky about Psychomagic, it's a mixture of Magic and Psychology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychomagic_%28psychotherapy%29 I was really impressed by Pachita, the sudamerican Healer. Does anyone have experience or something to say about Psychomagic ?
  12. Supplements

    You can have all the proteins you need just from food, you need supplement just if you are a bodybuilder. Protein powder still sometimes useful, when you don't have enough time to cook something. I got some hemp powder and i'm quite happy with it, i put it in my vegetable-oat shakes. Go for it if you need it. Anyway don't overdo with proteins, you don't actually need more than 2 grams of protein per Kilo, even if you're bulking.
  13. Heart Rate during Qigong

    ok, the heart rate is a bit lower if I do the movements even slower, let's say minimum 70 and maximum 90, it usually stays around 80. even if I breath slowly I do low mapu stances and that's probably the reason. Does it make sense ?
  14. Heart Rate during Qigong

    ok, I actually do my movements together with my breath, i'll try to do them slower and report the heart rate.
  15. Heart Rate during Qigong

    I breath deep and slowly in the lower dan tien - How should I breath otherwise ? Or did I misunderstood your question ?
