Chinese internal martial arts develop body-mind-spirit integration to access supernormal abilities and superconscious states of awareness. Transformation is achieved through gongfu (diligent practice over time) and understanding the inner energy alchemy that feeds the transformation process. Much of this information is veiled by arcane symbology and poetic descriptions, making it inaccessible to the uninitiated.
In this presentation, I will discuss and demonstrate nervous system correlates (Combs-Wilber Matrix: Upper Right) to the experiential aspect of the practice (Upper Left). This will include mindfulness and distinction of Afferent and Efferent Nervous System activity, Hemispheric Synchronization of the brain, and whole-brain coherence through deliberate consciousness of pre-conscious somatic activity.
The presentation will include a short guided meditation using techniques developed from these ideas.
