Join us for an investigation into the relationship between SunDo-Taoist meditation and the tidal pulsations of the cerebral-spinal fluid. Focusing on SunDo's microcosmic orbit (Qi energy circulation) meditation, researchers explain how breath and meditation influence our cerebral-spinal fluid rhythms. When these rhythms are expressed in fullness and balance, health and well-being naturally follow.
