    Caledonia Heron: do you practice 9sec exercise (everyone?) …how is that going?
    Adelene Dawner: well, here, my first day.
    Threedee Shepherd: explain 9sec exercise, please

    Caledonia Heron: in a nutshell, the experiment is to take 9 sec at 15 min intervals to relax, focus/unfocus, and see what appears or doesn’t
    Caledonia Heron: a way to tap into who you “be” , what is your “being”
    Caledonia Heron: people do what works for them on the suggested intervals or whenever
    Caledonia Heron: one of the points is to make it an inquiry, to find a universal kind of way to relate the human experience


    Stim Morane: Since people often don’t have time to spend an hour or more doing some traditional meditation method, the idea with the 9-second format Cal mentioned is to keep the mind open to facets of presence that might otherwise get crowded out by more pragmatic concerns.
    Stim Morane: If we do it every 15 minutes, it keeps the mind from becoming too closed.


    Stim Morane: This is actually quite like features of traditional practices, in fact.
    Stim Morane: There are many such things built into a monastic regimen, for instance
    Caledonia Heron: vocab question…please define traditional practices]
    Stim Morane: meditation practices in one tradition or another. Zen, Therevada, etc all have characteristic practices.
    Stim Morane: So far, Play as Being has only this rather simple one.
    Caledonia Heron: your statement aligns with many comments from other traditional practitioners that frequent pab :)
    Stim Morane: I suppose it will build and mutate over time.

    Caledonia Heron: I am on the light side of the boat, not a traditional practioner :)
    Kristali Klaar: arent we all
    Caledonia Heron: lol, fair enough
    Kristali Klaar: what is the one true path?
    Stim Morane: That may be ideal. And as Kristali just said, in the most important sense, we are all that way.
