A Connection Practice (a.k.a. Connection Technique) is any technique, such as meditation, mantras, relaxation, mindfulness, drumming, fasting, hypoventilation (Dole & Kiven, 1997), etc., that can a) open and enhance your connection to Consciousness/Highest Self and b) enable better control of the Flow that ensues.

Notes

Grof uses the term "Technologies of the Sacred" to refer to Connection Practices (drumming, fasting, sleep deprivation, etc.), Connection Appliances (drums, rattles), and Connection Supplements (Lazslo, Groff, Russell, 1999: 16).

Connection Practices combined with Connection Appliances, like the TOSAS, and the careful and guided use of Connection Supplements can facilitate transformative Connection

The Lightning Path provides several neurolinguistic tools (i.e. meditations, visualization, and mantras) [1] that can be used at various stages in the process to facilitate greater connection.
