  1. I'm someone who doesn't focus much on the lyrics and I know this song for longer time now, but today I heard it while cooking, and it touched me so wanted to understand the lyrics and realized that this is one of the saddest songs I ever heard, you probably know it, but still, enjoy
  2. Hello My name is Elias, and I can honestly say that Erik’s coaching was a great boost for my growth. I approached him in December and worked some months with him. My main goals were coming nearer to my vision, more authenticity and overcoming limitations in different areas of life. Working with Erik felt enjoyable and safe. In the coaching sessions I became aware of blockades, limitations, new perspectives, and new possibilities in regard to how to approach things. With Erik’s support, I discovered and actualized a part of my potential that before was more difficult to access or hidden. When I compare myself with Elias from December, I can say I’m more centered, more aware of myself, I’m clearer with what I want out of life, I trust myself more, I’m more disciplined, I’m much more aware that I literally can do what I want because I’m good enough NOW, I’m executing more, my social relationships bettered, and I’m in general more confident that before in social circumstances and life in general. My work in all these areas of course is not finished, but after the coaching I’m nearer and more in alignment to my goals than before the coaching! I also have a wider tool kit of techniques, an updated mindset and ways of approaching things that I still use after the coaching. I’m happy that I took the coaching and would do it again! PS: if you’re interested: my final talk with him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQjD-N8qeoI
  3. Do you know good meditation retreat places in europe? (beside the goenka retreat)
  4. Hello I want to do a vipassana retreat in my vacations but i didnt found a 10 day goenka retreat in europe (for my timeframe) but i found the dhammacari vipassana-meditation centre in germany. this retreat goes 15 days (only for beginners) and is harder than the goeanka. my question. the technique here is not the body scanning, but the Mahasi noting. -> Has someone experience with this and would you recommend it? -also a question is. it is my first time and is 15 days mabey too much for the first time? i meditate daily 30 min
  5. thanks , defenetly gonna check them out! , no, i first want to know more or less what it is, what i want to take out of coaching.
  6. okay, thanks for the inputs
  7. hello do you think it is a good idea to have 2 coaches, and see each one every two weeks? or is it better to have only one? i am thinking about getting 2 for having more than one perspective.
  8. where are the borders in the jungle;) ? a world without borders and diversity in humanity arent nessecary contradictions ( you see, even inside of countrys there is a lot of diversity). but of course, it is nowhere realistic in our lifetime
  9. hello 1 today I was contemplating about my 5g shrroms trip from last year and I had an experience where while I was looking at my room (around the peak) suddenly I was for like 2 seconds the room, only the room. There was only the thing I was looking at, the experience. And it also felt like I was the room forever at that moment. I tought it was mabey a ego death but now im thinking that it could be an experience of oneness. The fear grow in this trip after this experience of being my room. -> How would you lable the experience? 2 also an experience whitch I had and I also can't it really lable : I became really happy and euphoric and couldnt understand how I could have had fear at the beginning of the trip, I knew that there was no reason for fear. I felt extremely thankful for my family and for my life. This joy became more and more intense and it felt like my selfdeceptions where falling quickly one after another and I became more and more joyful and happy and thankful. I felt if I understood everything and it seemed so obvious and I knew it wouldnt last forever but I also felt so silly that I wouldnt be like that forever. The universe seemed like an organic machine and dimensions seemed like they are side by side. It was joy beyond what I had ever felt. (this was like 1-2 hours after I took shrooms and lastet like 1-2 hours) Im not really shure how to lable thiese experiences ( 1 and 2) because im only reading alongside about nonduality, ego-death, etc because my main focus at the moment is finding life purpose and psychology. Im not very familliar with the definition for these two mystical experiences and would appriecheate if someone understand these or who knows what the definiton of these are or could explain them. I want to understand these experience better.
  10. @flowboy sounds like an interesting approach to heal trauma and do shadow work. did you do it yourself with a book? and when yes, whitch one?
  11. okay, thanks for the advices and inputs Btw, I didnt took the 5 g light and knew that if it would get bad, it would get really bad but I wantet to have a reference experience of a big dose of psychedelics no matter what. For the 5g trip I prepared me like in the 2 weeks before and oriented me on mckenna who said you should rather take too much than too little (I know, you should take these advices with a grain of salt). I had much fear before taking the 5g but because I had made up my mind to do it no mather what, I did it. And yes in retrospective it wasnt the wisest decision. (but I also had some really beautiful experiences and great insights). And yes, it will take some time before I will take again such a dose I decided that I gonna trip but also look how I feel on wednesday and make the absolut decision then. Again, thanks for all inputs!
