Thanks for putting it up there.
There are a few practices here that I like to do on a subweekly basis.
Long life and happiness,
Awareness dances within and without.
The only thing we can expect is NOW. Listen, express, enjoy, learn and serve for that moment.

Better, tho, by far, to spend some time with him if you can. He travels quite a bit, notably to Europe and Canada
Many of you may already know Dirk.
Barry Long died in December 2003. He has left an enormous resource of books and audio and video tapes. His message is uncompromising and often unwelcome, as befits a spiritual master. You may especially dislike his "Making Love" tapes. I don't want to list everything of his which I recommend here. Feel free to ask.
I assume most of you are already familiar with Ron Diana and Michael Winn and their material.
Hope this list is of use to you.

I like the manifestation and realization techniques there.
Pretty cool stuff at www.E-Budo.com
See someone already mentioned www.emptyflower.com - but I second that!
www.russianmartialarts.com is pretty interesting
Enjoyed Dan Millman's new book "the Journey of Socrates" he seems to bring in quite a few Systema references there.
