To meditate, you don't need to follow a particular religion, espouse New Age theories and beliefs, bow to a guru, sensei, sifu, or a robed and bearded guide. Nor do you need to burn incense or rub crystals.This book shows you easy ways to meditate whenever and wherever you want—you'll learn how to do it without anyone knowing—and still hang out with your military pals, cop buddies, and fellow martial arts students. You can still own a pit bull, drive a Harley, and share lies with your drinking buddies. The same is true whether you're a firefighter, doorman, bodyguard, medic, or security officer. The simple fact is, meditation as taught within these pages, will make you a better warrior. “I wish I would have had this book before I deployed to Afghanistan. It's exactly what I was looking for.” - Army veteran"No matter who you are, Loren has things to teach you and if a veteran this grizzled presents a book of the precious mental tricks that have helped to keep him alive, well, I don't want to be unkind, but it would be kind of stupid not to read it."Rory Miller, author of "Facing Violence"

The Warrior's Meditation, by award-winning author of The Unbound Soul, Richard L. Haight, teaches the original, instinctive, non-religious form of meditation that has been all but lost to the world. Richard L. Haight, master of four samurai arts, shares the best-kept secret in self-improvement, cognitive development, and stress-relief in the world. You may wonder how the Samurai's experience bears any resemblance to your modern life. After all, no armies or assassins seem to be trying to attack you or your town. In one way, we are not so different from the Samurai. With our busy lives, we don't have time to spend hours a day in meditation. Instead, we need a meditation that allows our actions in a high-pressure, fast-paced world to flow from a depth of awareness. The Warrior's Meditation helps you access and express from that depth naturally.Surprisingly, a significant body scientific research verifies the benefits associated with regular meditation practice. Below are some of the benefits associated with daily meditation: ? Boosts health through improved immune function, decreased cellular inflammation and pain. ? Boosts happiness by increasing positive emotion while decreasing anxiety, depression, and stress. ? Improves your ability to introspect, which provides a more holistic, grounded life perspective. ? Improves your social life as it increases emotional intelligence and compassion while reducing feelings of insecurity. ? Improves your brain by increasing grey matter in areas related to paying attention, positive emotions, emotional regulation, and self-control. ? Reduces emotional reactivity. ? Improves memory, creativity and abstract thinking.The Warrior's Meditation is unlike any other meditation. This method is flexible in application, which allows it to blend with whatever your day has in store. Through short, daily sessions, the many scientifically verified cognitive and physical health benefits of daily meditation will open up to you through your active life. No longer do you need to retreat from life to meditate, for with The Warrior's Meditation, you can bring calm, clear awareness and vibrant life with you wherever you are. Eventually, you will fully embody meditation as a way of being, not just a doing.

Meditation for Warriors showed martial artists, cops, soldiers, and others how the simple act of sitting or standing quietly in meditation for a few minutes—without anyone knowing—can better prepare you for hard training, competition, the harsh reality of real combat, and the recovery. In the same vein, Mental Rehearsal For Warriors shows how meditation combined with mental rehearsal—sometimes called visualization or imagery—isn't supernatural, New Age, magical, or in any way woo-woo. It doesn't require years of study or the guidance of a robe-wearing guru. You already do it everyday to some extent. In this easy-to-follow book you learn to do it better to make you the best warrior you can be.Mental Rehearsal For Warriors introduces 12 new meditation techniques to calm your mind and relax your body so your subconscious is receptive to your mental rehearsal practice. You learn to rehearse such vital skills as calming your mind before and after a stressful event; facing an adversary; learning self-defense; engaging in a gunfight; performing a high-risk vehicle stop; learning new skills; skill maintenance; overcoming anxiety dreams; giving presentations, and more. A bonus chapter shows school teachers how to mentally rehearse surviving a school shooting. In the very near future, mental rehearsal will be a natural part of every warrior's training regimen, as natural as shooting, grappling, jumping out of a plane, and running laps. Why wait for the future? Others aren't.

This unique study of the genesis and development of the earliest form of Buddhist self-defense practiced by Chuan Fa monks and mystics shows both the philosophical and physical basis of the skills developed and passed on to subsequent generations. This book seeks to reunite these concepts. Its teaching draws equally on the practices of North Chinese Chaan Movement Meditation Traditions and on the South Chinese Esoteric (Mi Chiao) School--both secret traditions rarely revealed to the general public. The material is presented so readers can understand that what we think of as a competitive sport is really a meditation mandala in action. Extensive appendices list the main Chinese dynasties, a chronology of Buddhist Sutras, a chronological record of scriptures, teachers, events during 1000 years of Indian and Chinese Buddhism, and translations of Bodhidharma`s texts including The Six Gates, Entering the Buddha`s Path, and the treatise upon the Bloodline Teaching of True Dharma.

The ancient Celts lived in harmony with nature, celebrating the season through raucous festivals, which always included feisty tales with morals and soul-stirring poetry. The Celtic Book of Seasonal Meditations offers an inspirational collection of prose, verse, and meditations drawn from ancient lore and designed to draw modern seekers into the rhythms of nature. Claire Hamilton's overall introduction, simply and briefly, gives readers the tools they need to interpret the recurring symbols and meanings in these excerpts. She gives ideas for meditation using the readings--how to invoke nature, how to go to the Well of Wisdom, how to meet the Goddess in one of her many aspects. The body of the book is organized by season, each beginning with a short introduction of Celtic practices and beliefs particular to the season. What follows are the tales of warriors and lovers, goddesses and gods, and maidens and faeries, the songs of heroes and poetry in celebration of nature. Meet Queen Medbh, an independent ruler who chose her husband by the qualities he must lack--meanness, fear, and jealousy. Spring has its Meditation on Air, and other ways to consider the meaning of things new, not just at the time of year. Ditto all the other seasons. This collection offers a wealth of scholarship and information in an easy-to-understand and use format. Summer' from Amergin's Poem of the SeasonsSummer is the season for long journeys, silent is the wood of the tall trees undisturbed by wind, green is its clothing, a sheltering canopy. The water sucks and swirls in the stream and there is warmth now in the very clods of earth. A celebration of the ancient Celts and their spirituality--use it for individualmeditation or in group rituals and practice. Mythic tales of warriors and faeries, meditations on the meanings of elements, and the symbols of nature. Celtic wisdom and lore made simple and interesting.
