- Hi Ramon,
Thanks for your comments. Your suggestion for trying a smiling meditation is
a god reminder for me to try this approach during my meditations.
In an earlier post you mentioned you had attended a Mantak Chia workshop.
Please can you describe the workshop. Have you experienced chi during
meditation? What has been your experience with chi?
Since our mail is not so reliable for things other than letters due to high
levels of pilferage, I will hold for the time being on you donkey gruntler.
I would like to see it though. Is there a way I can get a picture of it?
Thanks again for your very enjoyable style of writing.

Or are you turning it backwards and pressing against the soft
palate? That might get a sore muscle at the base of the tongue.
First rule in yoga and meditation: never do anything that is
uncomfortable - or gets ANYTHING sore! If it doesn't feel
good, do something that does.
I'm still interested in a description of just what exactly it is that you
are doing, Graham. Meanwhile, I'd forget about the tongue
and concentrate on a SMILING meditation. I discover when
I smile when I meditate, the tongue finds it own proper spot.
Bob, you are very generous. The Gruntler is in the mail.
Beams and Good Graciousness,
