    Yeh, radio 2 and 4 ops:

    Wish I could de-clutter to the camper van at times Or back to a boat on the river. With the family of course.

    WOW! But there's sometihing to be said about that back angle: trying to keep it while sitting on your cushion will keep you really focused on the moment (brief as the moment will be before you hit the floor and get some literal grounding on reality)

    That position is _really_ good for your back, but _really_ bad for your neck, unless it's supported.

    That's why we have kinhin. A 30 minute sit with a break isn't a big deal.

    And what about balance point? There most of the stress is relieved through a centered posture.

    I heard someone once say (or I read) "Zazen is anti- gravitational.

    At the White Wind Zen Community they sit back about a 16th of an inch from balance point. For that you have to be pretty aware of the body and posture.
