One of the great things about the Art of Ascension is that is does not require any posture or any pre-requisite at all. It can be introduced into any activity that you are doing. We do recommend that you do it 2 or 3 times per day with your eyes closed, but that can be done lying down or a favorite for many, in a recliner.
The myth about your mind being too busy is true on one hand. But the Art of Ascension uses the natural tendency of the mind to its advantage, kind of like ju-jitsu. So, what you may think is a disadvantage, is actually put to use in the Art of Ascension. It uses thoughts to move you to deeper levels within the mind. The Art of Ascension teaches you how to construct a perfect thought, so the mind will move as designed. With the perfect thought, both the left and right hemispheres, the frontal lobe and the rear are all in harmony. Your mind loves it, and therefore your body loves it.
Then there’s the myth that if you meditate you will be too mellow. If one considers that some of the most successful CEO’s, entertainers, and sports people meditate, that debunks that one immediately. After all, Oprah Winfrey, one of Hollywood’s wealthiest women with a net worth of $3 billion, has been talking about the power of meditation since 1990. Ray Dalio, who began with humble beginnings and now has a net worth of $14B began meditating in college. He said that meditation is “the single most important reason for whatever success I've had."
