This is a state of bodily function of zero point. In still point your body feels like it is floating and you feel your brain and spine totally relaxing expanding and lengthening. You are totally relaxed yet awake. In cranio sacral therapy still point is achieved by the therapist holding the hole (the occiput) in the nape of your neck at the back of your head. You can achieve the same state by yourself by using a golf ball and place it at the nape of the neck in the occiput and rest of it. You will feel totally relaxed and not drop off to sleep.
