thedeconstructivemind asked: Brother, I have been venturing into qigong at your suggestion. All I can say is wow. It has synergized well with both my yoga practice and meditation practice. Of course, I am still very much a beginner but even basic breathing techniques are amazing. Thank you so much for your advice and guidance. I really want to find a teacher for further training but I am sure when the time is right the...
talkingtrashhh asked: Hello again :) I was reading Eckhart Tolle "Power of Now". I know that you have recommended his readings and i as I was reading Ch 2- The section dissolving the pain body.

expandingyourmind asked: I really don't need an answer for this...but I guess I'm in a doubtful mood and could use a boost of encouragement. but can one get into yoga without instructional classes and dvd's? can't one just look up positions, and do them alone? (i know this is obviously rhetorical. but I have always wanted to do yoga and haven't pushed myself into actually beginning the habit and...
Shutting Down and Rebooting the Chakras

LazyYogi Bedtime Stories: Shiva's Death

Thoughts, feelings, and manifestations traded space in a tantalizing fluctuating dance. Samsara was what we might call the Garden of Eden. Everything was perfect…but illusory.

brokeandfree-deactivated2012031 asked: what's your stance on past life regression?
iambothdarknessandlight asked: Hi. I was wondering what book you are using for your Taoist Mindfulness Meditation? Thank you.
Since I did my usual 45 minutes of meditation this morning, this evening I did 30 minutes of open-eyed sitting meditation. It was like abiding with the Tao. It was really wonderful. I think this is what I will do in the mornings and then move my meditations to the evening. See how that feels. Anything you’d like to share about the stillness?
