[quote="mdmf007"]I saw some suspension this year. I also noticed the look of well, for lack of a better word to describe it Bliss? I hear its from all of the endorphins. I here its real draining like someone mentioned as well.
How long can a person suspend without dmage? or before the high wears off?[/quote]
This is a tradition that goes way back. Among some cultures that have done suspension, is a tradition by some native american tribes, where the warriors/youth would suspend from a tree for one week, as a right of passage to becoming a man. During their time, they would often hallucinate, and sometimes even "meet god" while suspending. All while learning how to cope with patience and pain, some things that are necessary when being a warrior.
This practice kinda died out for a long time. In the 1970's and 80's, there was one white man who was interested in the Shamanistic ways of Native Americans. He met with and learned many of the forgotten tribal ways, such as suspension. He's also a teacher, and started a school in San Francisco to teach others of the practices of Suspension, Piercing, Modern Primatives, and so on.
His name is the Fakir Musafar.
