Hi my name is PsychicSeraphicLotusMetta. I just joined recently, and for those interested, I would like to share some radical ideas about human beings. I am currently undergoing a shamanic journey, so my research into these topics is nowhere near complete. First I would like to share some life experience to put this into context. I have attended several silent meditations at retreats in California, you can do this through free through an organization founded by S.N. Goenka at dhamma.org, I have spent time dedicating myself completely to tai chi and yoga. With all of this spiritual development I have come to a very basic personal conceptual understanding of "energy".

I would like to introduce a book to you guys, it's called the "Future of the Body" and it's written by the founder of the Esalen institute in California. Micheal Murphy was inspired by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother this is also good reading.

Basically the idea behind the book is that through shamanism, sports, martial arts, yoga, christian traditions, mystical practice, trance, altered state, meditation, tibetan mystical practice, voodoo, etc. etc. etc. we can achieve "meta-normal" capacities of Perception, Somatic Movement, Awareness and self-regulation, Communication Abilities, Vitality, Movement Abilities, Abilities to Alter Environment, Pain and Pleasure, Cognition, Volition and other things.

Due to what I have experienced within my body on a personal level this seems totally natural to me.

I was wondering if within this community there are people who know what I'm talking about or want to discuss these things.

<3 Peace

I also got a very basic personal conceptual understanding of energy, based on physics and chemistry (and martial arts). Feel free to make an introduction post, seems like you have alot to tell about yourself.

I'm interested in stuff like performance optimization, human enhancement, modeling skills, etc, myself, PsychicSeraphicLotusMetta.

Discussion about mystical and "meta-normal" things here probably isn't going to get very far before turning ugly, though. This is not a forum of people who believe in developing superhuman powers.
