Interesting idea. Not sure how this constitutes a "darkside" meditation though.

“Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.” -Zhuangzi

“Though, as the crusade presses on, I find myself altogether incapable of staying here in saftey while others shed their blood for such a noble and just cause. For surely must the Almighty be with us even in the sundering of our nation. Our fight is for freedom, for liberty, and for all the principles upon which that aforementioned nation was built.” - Patrick “Madman of Galway” O'Dell

Very interesting idea, I found it very different to regular meditation.

I felt anxiety, anger, but also very focused. I for one can see the "dark side" aspect to that meditation. Focus through your anger sounds dark to me!

Out of interest, did anyone get a 'Sith' vibe off this? I certainly did

You have to confront and master the darkness within, or it will control you...

Personally I find these soothing...some of us have been down that road and find comfort in their familiarity, these forms of meditation aren't for everyone though...just offered as an alternative...

In point of fact, most Sith I know do not meditate. At least in the sense of putting time aside for it. At one time, several years ago, it was popular.

As for any emotion it would stir, anger, anxiety, or what have you...

I find them soothing too Ryuin , i sometimes wake up with this horrible feeling in my stomach , a very irrational feeling that i cannot put into words , for me really it has nothing to do with the Sith philosophy as with my own inability to pin point where all that "Darkness" if you want to call it that is coming from. Meditating and getting to the core of that fear and really living the fear is in the end more relaxing for me than to walk around not knowing what it is that unsettles me , now this planet is unsettling , thats not what i mean , i am not sticking my head in the sand , its a way to keep sane. I can see though how this might be to much for some.

And Khaos..the Sith that call themselfes that way that i know , do meditate in some form or other , but they might not fall under your definition of Stih , but i am no expert ...
