What do you mean by technique? I think that might help frame the discussion.
Uh... Have you read my posts in the thread? I even gave dictionary definitions.
Let me say this, everything I did in Hawaii was a technique. No question about it. I guess these were the body conditioning methods of "IP/IT/IS". Really, this topic isn't that complicated. If you are not prepared to recognize technique, I don't know what to say.
On a side note, if everyone who posted actually read every word of every thread that they post in (like I have always done), I think we'd be making more progress.
