Do any of you listen to music, or audiobooks or podcasts while training? Is this even advisable?
my personal theory is that after practice, my brain is automatically synthesizing and integrating the content of the practice.
But on the other hand, panting, profusely sweating, and growling are not things I associate with meditation either.
Perhaps this is one place to apply the concept of investing in loss? I need to accept my loss of interest and focus (i.e., boredom), knowing that it is only temporary, in order to get through it and let something else arise from the emptiness. I think this is one way taiji can parallel meditation.
I know I'm necroing an old thread (usually looked down upon in public forums,but is it here? please let me know!) but seeing this,I'm glad to know I'm on the right path. Because I'm interested in Meditation,and that's also a big part of the reason I became interested in Taijiquan.
reminded me of this video that I saw
