ESOTERIC YOGA OF ZEN:
TRAINING METHODS FROM THE PATRIARCH
by Edward Orem, PhD
This book addresses how to explore, generate and control energies not usually available to humans. 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. This training information has been suppressed by almost the entire Zen hierarchy of Japan, USA and Europe. It is only because of the "fringe" members of the spiritual family, i.e. martial artists, that this information has been worked with and preserved. Sold only as an e-book (MSWord or on-line web address). The Word edition has 180 pages, including extensive historical perspectives and cultural commentary. This is for the thinking martial artist! 190 photographs and step-by-step instruction for Shipalohanshou/18 Methods of the Enlightened Ones and Yijinjing/Muscle-Sinew Changing.
