Yes, exactly the retentions are to be half the length of the inspiration and expiration. As you say “n” simply signifies a time interval/count. For example if we were using n = 1 count, the formula would be 2 count inhalation, 1 count hold, 2 count exhalation, 1 count hold. This form of breath yoga is a rather simple method to induce that metaphoricalSilence pertinent to our work. I haven’t found much difference between the 2n-n-2n-n and the 2n-4n-2n-n, other than the later version producing that silence/trance state slightly quicker.

No, unfortunately I haven’t come across the remaining two volumes, in fact I haven’t even seen copies available(English or Italian). Do you happen to have a source that sells the volumes in Italian?

Thanks for dropping a note, Cheers!

]]>It’s a misfortune I can’t read the remaining two volumes of Gruppo di Ur. They are only in Italian. Have You been able to read them or know about some (at least partial) translations?

I salute You with this blog, looks interesting…
