I'm dizzy and I'm not even spinning.

After reading that they do this as some sort of meditation I was intrigued and decided to give it a try. I put on some calm music and started spinning. I was amazed that I didn't get dizzy at all. I continued for about 5 minutes, but when I stopped...

Pfft, I couldn't keep balance and everything was whirling. For about a minute I was in a state of blissful confusion. It felt funny, but soon after I got a headache and nausea. I was dazed for the rest of the day.

Maybe after some training I'll be able to reach an ecstatic trance like those dervishes while reducing the side effects. Free drugs with no impact on your health xD.
