Editor's Note from David Arenson: I had dreamed of China long before I set eyes on its shores. There's something unknown and perhaps unknowable about China – and I resolved to find this hidden essence in Tai Chi, the ancient Chinese internal martial art, as much moving meditation as self-defence.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is the head of the Shambhala Buddhist lineage, a spiritual and family lineage that descends through his family, the Mukpo clan. “Rinpoche” is an honorary title which means “precious one.” The Shambhala teachings, both the secular and the Buddhist variations, emphasize the basic goodness of all beings and teaches the art of courageous warriorship based on wisdom and compassion. As a contemporary teacher, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche uses contemporary music to extend his message.

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Frequent meditation rewires your brain and sharpens the mind. It also counter acts the aging process and, as this Scientific American video showcases, can keep your mind as you age as fit as a 20 something. Scientists are more deeply starting to understand all that this simple technique can do. Do it yourself (!) and make your own discoveries.
It is the same, but with a slight difference. The emphasis is now not on the gap, but on the turning. The outgoing and ingoing breath make a circle. Remember, these are not two parallel lines. We always think of them as two parallel lines -- breath going in and breath going out...
