Greetings and Love to 1 and all

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!!!


Longtime lay-omni spiritualist here!

I'm a working percussionist, drum maker, music producer and DJ in NYC.

My family consists of the 3 of us - my common-law wife & an 8 year-old 3rd grader called "Love".

We live comfortably in the Bronx near Yankee Stadium.

All 3 of us do a damn good traditional Okinawa Goju-Ryu class in Harlem 3x/week.

Our teacher turned us on to the standing and sitting 8 pieces of brocade forms.

It's reignited my personal quest for this old school knowledge from Asia I started when I was a kid -

  1st from my father ranting about Taoism & physics then stumbling onto Mantak Chia's books in the early 90s.

We're 2 years into this Goju discipline next week & as I turn 44, my thoughts turn to my end game:

  I want to live long & need ALL my systems functioning strongly into old age to achieve my goals.

IMO the Taoists and Buddhists figured all that out 1000s of years ago & I thought this'd be a great forum to discuss.


Looking forward to listening to/sharing with all of you.


1 perfect love,

Ceiba aka Brotha Sean

Hi Ceiba,


8 Pieces of Brocade is awesome. I’m glad you have found a desire to be healthy and peaceful. The fun part is the journey there. Enjoy the forums brother !

Hi Ceiba.  Welcome.


We have other musicians here.  Maybe you will encounter them.


Yeah, old age is a challenge.  But we can always stay young at heart.
