"We have to move. The whole universe is moving. Why would we become static?"
- Sunyata Saraswati
Many are eager to meditate, open the 3rd Eye, or go deep into whatever the spiritual path could be defined as. Along with that mystical reality, one must still be able to navigate the physical reality. In the physical reality, one must be grounded and be able to, as Master Sunyata would say, "function on this planet."
In this manual, the Foundation Warmup is presented: stances and movements that help the practitioner to stabilize and settle into the body, and to acclimate the body to synchronization of breath with movement. This cleansing, grounding, and expanding practice is a tune up for the internal and external body.
