I meditated for 35+ hours last week. Here’s what... - Daniel Colossus DiPiazza
Across about 15 meditations, I experienced states of blissfully calm visualization — and other, more out-of-body experiences that were not unlike some of my deepest journeys using psychedelics.

One thing I found most interesting was how physically challenging the entire week was. This “retreat” was not about relaxation. These were 14-16 hour days designed to capitalize on compounded effort over a short period of time to help build the skill of meditation.

In between guided sessions, we dove into concepts that helped create more context around why we were doing what we were doing. Dispenza is a brilliant teacher with seemingly endless knowledge on a wide variety of subjects and has the distinct ability to wade far out into uncharted territory and somehow make it back home in a single lecture.

I felt like I was being hit with a firehose stream of information. It took serious commitment to do that much work in such a short time and I was exhausted by the end of the week. But I could tell new pathways had been created in my brain. I felt my perspective on the world expand tremendously to match the new information presented.

Since the event, my meditation practice has become much more meaningful — and rather than seeing it as something that I should just “get through” for 20-30 minutes per day, I’ve really begun to enjoy the feeling of sinking into a long period of time with the self.

I’ve adopted new strategies for going deeper as well — including some pretty intense breath work exercises that have the power to create vivid visualizations that feel more real than my waking life.

I’ve developed much more sensitivity to what my brain and heart actually feel like when they are operating inside of me. Through the work, I’ve been learning to consciously control autonomic functions and can slow down my brain waves and heart rate at will through thought alone.

I feel like a Jedi discovering the Force for the first time.
