Interesting. I can understand how Tai Chi and Hatha Yoga re-structure the mind (through the body-mind?) away from the 'delusional'(purely head) thinking. Don't know enough about Zen meditation. But I have found Yogic type concentration meditation useful in a few patients with schizophrenia. Anyone else out there with experiences. Another tempting question: If we believe that some psychoses are 'spirital emergencies' in Grof's sense, i.e. sudden influxes from the astral or causal worlds, where does that place Yogic meditation practices? Could meditation be used to re-balance the flow of energies between those worlds (or bodies)?
