Description - Unleash the Dragon Within: Transform Your Life With the Kung-Fu Animals of Ch'ien-Lung by Steven Macramalla
A respected Kung-Fu instructor shares a lineage using six cat and snake animal archetypes to deepen any martial arts practice and reach beyond the mat to help transform other physical, emotional, and sexual aspects of the reader's life.
Unleash the Dragon Within introduces the six Animals of Chien-Lung, an 18th century Kung-Fu practice based on the animal archetypes of three great cats and three great snakes- Black Panther, White Leopard, Boa, Cobra, Python, and Tiger. Each animal represents a martial style, personality type, brain region, system of the body, and aspect of consciousness. They each also have their favorite foods, music, books, movies, and hobbies. Psychology professor and Kung-Fu teacher Steven Macramella shows how to determine which animal the reader most resonates with. He explains the strengths and traits of each Animal and how understanding and working with them can inform not just Kung-Fu or indeed any martial arts practice but also every aspect of the reader's life. When the reader brings their Animal into perfect balance with its "opposite," the combination of cat and snake is formed, resulting in the "dragon" and supporting readers in bringing balance and effectiveness into their lives. Approximately 60 black and white photographs of the author demonstrating basic exercises and bows with which to work with each animal arcehtype are included. Includes cutting-edge research in neuroscience on the mind-body relationship, with detailed descriptions of each aspect of the Animals as well as Animal exercises to improve physical, emotional, mental and sexual health -- topics sure to captivate and enlighten a wide spectrum of readers.
