In this inspiring guide, Peter Ralston presents a program of ''physical education'' for anyone interested in body improvement. Using simple, clear language to demystify the Zen mindset, he draws on more than three decades of experience teaching students and apprentices worldwide who have applied his body-being approach. More of a transformative guide than a specific list of exercises devoted to any particular physical approach, Zen Body-Being explains how to create a state of mental control, enhanced feeling-awareness, correct structural alignment, increased spatial acuity, and even a greater interactive presence. Exercises are simple, often involving feeling-imagery or a kind of meditative awareness that has a profound and sometimes instant effect. Where similar guides teach readers what to do, this challenging book by the man whose insights Dan Millman has said ''speak to us all,'' teaches readers how to be. Peter Ralston has black belts in judo, jujitsu, and karate. The founder of the martial arts tradition Cheng Hsin and the school dedicated to it, he leads workshops on a wide range of disciplines.
