Available to ship within 1-5 days
In today's world, martial arts, health practices and spirituality are considered separate disciplines. This wasn't always the case. When we trace Chinese martial arts back to their origin we discover the character of Bodhidharma who taught a practice to the monks that allowed them to maintain a healthy body for deeper meditation while at the same time increasing their capacity to defend themselves. This practice has remained hidden for millennia and only passed down from teacher to student through direct transmission.
With this book, you will learn to:
*discover natural movement at the heart of stillness,
*connect with and nurture your own natural ability, and
*deepen your current movement and meditation practices.
With the state of the world as it is today, it is time to share this practice with all those who may benefit. This book shares the practice of zhan zhuang in a way that is accessible to all.
About the Author
Mark Stempel began his Aikido training in 1981. Yet, after thirty three years of training,
he still had not found the transformation he was looking for. This led him on a journey
to understand yin and yang within his own body. His quest led him to cross paths with a
Taiji and Yiquan master who had been diagnosed with stage four prostate cancer.
Through his own nei-gong practice, his teacher's cancer went into remission and he was
able to enjoy teaching for another five years, long enough to share the essence of his art. Before his teacher passed away in 2019, Mark promised to share the essence of the art that his teacher so generously shared with him. Learn more at movementinstillness.com.
