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.
List of Connection Practices
This is an intercultural list of connection practices. Research is included where available.
Mystics often use language and metaphor in a special way, in an effort to trigger enlightenment in others. Zen, in particular, is built up as a Connection Practice. In my view, this is an attempt to develop a connection practice, but in fact, is based on a faulty or limited understanding/theorization of the phenomenon.
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).
