How do you find your transcendence?

I am working on a film about how we all let go of our small selves and "become the Universe" (as Hakuin said) for a moment or an hour. A shower? Seated mediation? Running? Everyone seems to have a different way. What's yours? Also, what or whom would you be interested in watching or hearing about in a film like this? Thanks everyone!

      Mar 5 2013: But even so, there are times when our minds wander (metaphorically speaking) and we lose track of time. Driving on a long, monotonous road or doing something simple and repetitive. I'm interested in those moments. Some people find it quite therapeutic to lose themselves for a time, whatever your belief about consciousness.
