Microcosmic Orbit

Meditation for Circulating Energy

One of my favorite meditations, the Microcosmic Orbit, is an ancient Taoist breath and attention practice that moves congested energy.

That could be sexual energy condensed in the pelvis (this is a popular practice for delaying ejaculation or orgasm), but could also be emotional or physical energy, such as anxiety in the belly, a headache, or heartache.

If you're a meditator, and you concentrate attention at one point (say, the low belly or the tip of the nose), this practice can prevent too much energy from condensing in that one place, and instead allow any attention you've built up to nourish your whole system.

Also, this video takes place in a 2000 Honda Civic. Enjoy!

How was this practice for you? Let me know!
