    Never been hypnotised, but have practiced meditation extensively. I think meditation is a useful mental discipline that many Westerners seem to pooh pooh, but would do well to try
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I went with my wife to hypnobirthing classes 2 years ago. She was able to "get to a more relaxing place" but I just wanted to laugh every time and was trying not to act like Beavis and Butthead. It was just too funny to take seriously. Its results were mixed becuase the labor was so fast there wasn't any time for all the relaxation techniques.

    I learned how to meditate while taking my son to family therapy when going thru a very difficult divorce. It helped a lot, esp. when I feel a panic attack coming on, or can't get to sleep. I don't do it regularly enough, though.
