This place is all about sharing knowledge and abilities to help make good men - better.
In many ways, today's environment is even MORE hostile towards men than ever before. Men don't have the emotional support system available that others simply take for granted. Veterans (like myself) are especially in need of help.
It's said that, everyday, twenty two veterans commit suicide. This is beyond unacceptable.
Meditation is a necessary skill that all good men should learn and practice in order to survive the insidious snares and pitfalls of the current cultural environment.
I was first introduced to traditional Zen meditation when I started training in classical martial arts way back in 1976. In 1999 I became a personal student of Koro Kaisan Roshi - the founder of the International Mugendo Zenkai.
In September of 2002 I took my Tokudo vows and became a fully ordained Buddhist priest "known in the Dharma" as Kodo Genki.
I've published a book on Buddhist meditation (called How to Experience God) and you can find a link here at kodoan.com. I was only able to link to the outside Barnes & Noble site for purchase so remember that when purchasing - go to the outside link!
From quality Samue gi meditation clothes to cushions to Mokugyo "fish drums" - you'll find exactly what you need to survive the mental, emotional and spiritual pitfalls that have, unfortunately, become our "new normal". In addition, you might just find something else along the way - enlightenment!
Kick back, relax and stay awhile! Every good man should acquire a basic Zen meditation gear collection as a necessary part of his modern-day survival kit!
