The Gospel of Science: Mind-blowing New Science on Ancient Truths to Heal Our Stress, Lives, and Planet

by William Edward Douglas Jr., 2020 

You may have read claims before that a book can change your life and the world. However in the opening pages of The Gospel of Science you will read comments from top experts in the fields of: Mind-Body and Personal Growth, Physics, Sociology, Economics, Government, and Theology, who after enjoying the hundreds of pages of exciting cutting edge research methodically and poetically cited in this unique book, came to the enthusiastic conclusion, that indeed – The Gospel of Science delivers on this promise.

So if you want to change your life and world in extraordinarily exciting and healthful ways, this book is a profound place to begin. The Gospel of Science is an unprecedented book on cutting edge science revealing that each of us, and humanity as a whole, are on the cusp of profound personal and global transformation. Did you know that science has discovered a technique that can increase our IQ, our creativity, or ability to learn and adapt to new information, while healing our DNA, dramatically reducing illness, depression, and anxiety, and even reversing our aging process by years? If you find that exciting, you will find a vast resource of other thrilling new science in The Gospel of Science.

What if, by enjoying all these profound benefits from this personal transformation, we were also laying the ground work for a new world? This book makes a solid data-driven case that a world of plenty, a more calm, peaceful, and exciting world is about to unfold its petals IF, and when, we are ready to allow it into being. Knowing it can happen is the first step, and letting go of our fears of the future is a crucial part of that first step, rather replacing those fears with science-based hope for our personal and collective future. The Gospel of Science will replace your fears with faith and hope–and this is an important thing to allow at this time in human history.

The author of “The Gospel of Science” reveals how “self-fulfilling prophecy” is a powerful thing, so the way we see ourselves and our world now becomes vastly important to the world being created in the ether of our consciousness right now–and new science proves it. The Gospel of Science, citing voluminous emerging scientific data, leaves readers with a certainty in their answer to the most important question human beings can ask ourselves–Is the universe a friendly place? Einstein pointed out that our answer to this question is the most important answer we can give, because every action and the world we create is a result of our answer to this question. The Gospel of Science will leave you knowing that the answer to that question is an irrefutable “YES!”

The Gospel of Science is not pollyannish about this answer, but methodically builds this conclusion over hundreds of pages of cited scientific articles, studies, and data. This unparalleled book shows scientific proof of a technique that makes us far more capable of “actualizing” the kind of life and world we seek.

Do yourself and the world a huge favour, read The Gospel of Science, and then spread that gospel in every way you can.

The Creation of Wing Chun: A Social History of the Southern Chinese Martial Arts

 by by Benjamin N Judkins & Jon Nielson. State University of NY Press, 2015

This book explores the social history of southern Chinese martial arts and their contemporary importance to local identity and narratives of resistance. Hong Kong’s Bruce Lee ushered the Chinese martial arts onto an international stage in the 1970s. Lee’s teacher, Ip Man, master of Wing Chun Kung Fu, has recently emerged as a highly visible symbol of southern Chinese identity and pride. Benjamin N. Judkins and Jon Nielson examine the emergence of Wing Chun to reveal how this body of social practices developed and why individuals continue to turn to the martial arts as they navigate the challenges of a rapidly evolving environment. After surveying the development of hand combat traditions in Guangdong Province from roughly the start of the nineteenth century until 1949, the authors turn to Wing Chun, noting its development, the changing social attitudes towards this practice over time, and its ultimate emergence as a global art form.

About the Authors:

Benjamin N. Judkins holds a doctoral degree in political science from Columbia University.

Jon Nielson is chief instructor at Wing Chun Hall in Salt Lake City, Utah.

A History of Chinese Martial Arts

edited by Fuhua Huang and Fan Hong, 2020 | 

Chinese martial arts have a long, meaningful history and deep cultural roots. They blend the physical components of combat with strategy, philosophy and tradition, distinguishing them from Western sports.
A History of Chinese Martial Arts is the most authoritative study ever written on this topic, featuring contributions from leading Chinese scholars and practitioners. The book provides a comprehensive overview of all types of Chinese martial arts, from the Pre-Qin Period (before 222 BC) right up to the present day in the People’s Republic of China, with each chapter covering a different period in Chinese history. Including numerous illustrations of artefacts, weaponry and historical drawings and documents, this book offers unparalleled insight into the origins, development and contemporary significance of martial arts in China.
This is a fascinating read for researchers and students working in sports history, Chinese sport and Chinese Studies.

From the review by Gabe Logan (Northern Michigan University):

This work examines the entwinement of martial arts and China. It begins with prehistoric Sinanthropus’s fight for survival, details the continual evolution of fighting systems through each of China’s major dynasties, and concludes with its place and purpose in the People’s Republic of China. It explores individual fighting styles, military strategies, martial skills used in theater and opera, mass performances, and current sporting roles…
… China’s Ministry of Sport first published this work in 1994. In the nearly twenty-five years since its current translation, its research remains valid. Martial arts maintained a central role in China’s history. The military depended on fighters, the population used it for health and recreations, and performers entertained the populace with their skilled fighting acrobatics. However, the recent global dissemination of Chinese fighting needs elaboration. Following the collapse of the Nationalists, many skilled practitioners left China. For example, the famous martial artist Ip Mann fled to Hong Kong. One of his top students, Bruce Lee, arguably introduced Chinese martial arts to an international audience via his
acting career and impressive skills. A chapter that accounts for this globalization of Chinese martial arts should be included.
This work will appeal to several academic driplines including military science, history, social anthropology, and sport studies. It demonstrates the evolution of armed and unarmed fighting skills as both a social constant and sport.

The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi

 by Peter M. Wayne, PhD, with Mark L. Fuerst, 2013 | 

A long-time teacher and Harvard researcher presents the latest science on the benefits of T’ai Chi as well as a practical daily program for practitioners of all ages

Conventional medical science on the Chinese art of Tai Chi now shows what Tai Chi masters have known for centuries: regular practice leads to more vigour and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being. Cutting-edge research from Harvard Medical School also supports the long-standing claims that Tai Chi also has a beneficial impact on the health of the heart, bones, nerves and muscles, immune system, and the mind. This research provides fascinating insight into the underlying physiological mechanisms that explain how Tai Chi actually works.
Dr Peter M. Wayne, a long-time Tai Chi teacher and a researcher at Harvard Medical School, developed and tested protocols similar to the simplified program he includes in this book, which is suited to people of all ages, and can be done in just a few minutes a day. This book includes:
• The basic program, illustrated by more than 50 photographs
• Practical tips for integrating Tai Chi into everyday activities
• An introduction to the traditional principles of Tai Chi
• Up-to-date summaries of the research on the health benefits of Tai Chi
• How Tai Chi can enhance work productivity, creativity, and sports performance
• And much more
