    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.

    Yang 24-Step Tàijíquan is one of the most widely-practiced Tàijíquan forms in the world today, and the form that most people first learn. Gentle enough to be suitable for the elderly, yet challenging enough to stretch even the most experienced practitioner, it is also one of the most accessible and rewarding. 
    
    In his new book, James Drewe provides a comprehensive and detailed explication of the postures and movements of the form. For each, he describes exactly how the weight flows, how to use the hands, how to move the limbs, and how to relax into the movement, clearly explaining each step with the aid of foot patterns and photographs. Sections on the internal aspects of Tàijíquan, descriptions of the subtle variations that may be made when performing certain movements, and even instructions on how to fit the movements to music are also included. 
    
    This comprehensive guide to Yang 24-Step Tàijíquan is an invaluable resource for taiji practitioners at all levels, including beginners, as well as taiji instructors, and students of other martial arts.

    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.

    Modern fitness is not just about how we move our bodies; it’s about how we move our brains as well. Whole Motion offers a complete picture of how to strengthen your resolve, gain laser-sharp focus, boost your ability to remember, calm your anxiety levels, master your emotional responses, and embody your body like never before. Author Derek Beres uncovers the latest research in how the brain is affected by a number of different exercise formats. The book offers sample workouts designed to give your brain the greatest stimulation and regeneration possible.Whole Motion is divided into two main sections. In the Movement section, Beres looks at the movement science and neuroscience behind Feldenkrais, strength training, HIIT, yoga, and meditation. He reveals the latest research behind each movement discipline and incorporates anecdotal examples from clients and students. He also includes information on when and why to perform each exercise.In the Mind section, Beres investigates the other side of fitness: nutrition, regeneration, flow, and disruption, as well as how to choose music for optimal workouts and the neurological cost of distraction. This section is the lifestyle component, focusing on how to create the best environment to achieve a sense of completeness in brain and body.
