As far as I know, the development of the thought born body is a normal outcome of Ch’an practice as the result of breaking through the form and sensation skandha.

Astral travel and the development of the manomayakaya mainly come from disidentifying from the body as a self. Anapanasati is said to work best for this purpose as it also works on the chi mai (energy channels).

And to think my teacher told me "Zen is not astral travel". Guess you have to hang out with the Theravadans for that.
Thanks for the interesting quote.
