RIDE BACKWARDS ON DRAGON: a poet’s journey through Liuhebafa
Visit my liuhebafagirl website for details on my book Ride Backwards on Dragon: a poet’s journey through Liuhebafa.
This book is a collection of 66 poems structured around the 66-move sequence of Liuhebafa, a 1,000-year-old martial art from China that I have been studying since 1997. According to legend and Taoist practice, Liuhebafa is considered to be a recipe for internal alchemy and even immortality. In addition to poems, Ride Backwards on Dragon contains 30 pages of endnotes decoding the Taoist metaphysical symbolism of the 66 ancient titles – information never before published in English. The book was a finalist for Canada’s Gerald Lampert Award.Ride Backwards On Dragon: a poet’s journey through Liuhebafa $18.95 ISBN 978-0-9783223-8-0 Re-issued 2011 by Pig Squash Press
