Overview

This book addresses how to explore, generate and control energies not usually available to humans. 190 photographs and step-by-step instruction in two of the most influential and powerful training systems ever handed down: Shipalohanshou/18 Methods of the Enlightened Ones and Yijinjing/Muscle-Sinew Changing. It offers integrated training for those who wish to do the work of improving cerebral functions, coming to full understanding of the human experience, and maintaining multi-level health. It is based on the training methods from ancient India and China, as experienced by the founder of Chan/Zen Buddhism, Bodhidharma (Tamo) as he grew into adulthood and spiritual maturity. The Patriarch of Zen was considered a dangerous rebel by the status quo, and for good reason: his approach to human development rejected authority outside of oneself, including scripture and officials. Officials/Intellectuals within the Buddhist hierarchy have always had a hard time with Tamo's methods of direct pointing.

Meet the Author

About the dodgy author, a man of knavish reputation, apocryphal credentials, inconsequential means, and lowborn acquaintances:I worked indoor jobs (editorial, teaching) until I was 26. Got real bored, and it sure didn´t suit my self-image as a writer, always shut up inside. So I wandered for 10 years (the western States, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala) trying on new experiences for size: ranch hand, farm laborer, gardener, janitor, small-town news reporter, consultant for tribal clinic, martial arts instructor, stuntman in production company, movie extra.I now rent a little house on a cattle ranch in Uvita, tending my organic veggies and pampering my bantam chickens. I'm a fishing guide there and also offer instruction in Chi Kung,Tai-chi Chuan,and Shaolin.Besides ROOT AND BRANCH, I've written, performed in, and produced 35 DVDs in the fields of health, exercise and martial arts. All these I peddle on my website CHUAN-FA.tripod.com and on Smashwords, CreateSpace, and Amazon, as well as two non-fiction works, THE MASTER'S MANUAL: CHUAN FA KENPO CLOSE COMBAT ARTS and ESOTERIC MARTIAL ARTS OF ZEN.
