    This Step Home - Simple Guide to...

    Walking meditation has been practiced for centuries in many parts of the world. Some practices are strict and ritualized, others more free and easy. 
      
    In “This Step Home”, writing directly from his half-century of meditation practice, Jeff Falconer provides step-by-step  instruction in a simple and accessible style of walking meditation. The everyday act of walking, along with a relaxed awareness of one’s breath, one’s body in motion, and one’s surroundings, can quickly reward the mindful walker with deep calm, clarity and renewed harmony with the natural world. Walking meditation can be enjoyed in a single room, on a mountain trail, or on a busy city street. Cultivating this easy discipline can transform such common tasks as walking the aisles of a store, walking the halls at work, or standing in line at the bank. 
      
    Inspired at every turn of his meditative path to simplify and distill his practice down to the essentials, Falconer has developed a non-denominational approach, wherein no new beliefs need to be added and no existing beliefs shed. While many beneficial forms of meditation are connected to larger systems of religious or philosophical thought, it is Falconer’s experience that meditation can be quite satisfying with no such affiliations. 
      
    Short and sweet, this booklet can be read in a day, or opened at random to a page or paragraph for inspiration. It will fit easily into pocket, purse or backpack, and is an excellent companion for any ambulatory adventure. For both beginning and experienced meditators, or for folks who are merely curious and considering a practice of mindfulness, “This Step Home” will provide valuable insight and encouragement, in a friendly voice free of dogma or hierarchy. 
      
    “This Step Home” is intended to be a breath of fresh air, and it is.

  • Esoteric Martial Arts2: Evolution at Source - Marrow Washing - Esoteric Martial Arts of Zen #2 - cover

    Esoteric Martial Arts2:...

    This chi kung set is a complex one, with both physical and internal movements. It is not physically difficult, but the length of time required to pay attention to the subtle movements of the various energies is a suitable task for advanced students of the arts. 
    This second manual is a capstone to the tripartite training (18 Hands of the Lohan, Muscle-Tendon Changes, and Marrow Washing) as handed down by Bodhidharma at Shaolin Songshan Temple, ca. 530 A.D. See my first manual for a treatment of the first two systems. 
    “Returning to Source” refers to the conscious use of Original Heavenly Tien Chi and Earth Di Chi to renew your own chi and return to a natural, balanced state. From that point of balance you have access to a conscious modification of your DNA. How? By generating and guiding these energy sources of light into your muscles-organs-meridians, then pumping and packing the chi into your bones, into your marrow (includes your brain!), and then washing your genetic helixes with that light. 
    When we practice these integrated and open-ended systems of training, we reside within the realm of non-Aristotelian, non-Cartesian evidence, a locus that connects all possibilities of human existence simultaneously. We as traditional, classical martial artists don’t need no stinking badges from modern science to experience the truth of the matter: 1) We are responsible for our own existence, and 2) We can energetically control both our present and future genetic states. We don’t need to ask permission to grow beyond the boundaries of our previous experiences or beyond our culture. Or even beyond our genomes. 
    Have you considered how your training influences your genetic drift? We don’t need to leave our future to the vagaries of “drift.” Nor remain at the mercy of the pathetically inferior path of modern society, with its dependence on accepting central authorities outside of oneself (central message from Bodhidharma!). Clamoring and clawing through a life of getting and spending, accepting tidbits tossed to you by elitists swayed by destructive myopia, massive ignorance, and out-of control egos, is no life, but a hell. 
    The original impetus for sacred warriorhood—indeed, the worthwhile goal of all complete martial training—was and is to wake up. That is, by means of cathartic mind and body activities, to live with clarity. 
    Switch on your own light.
