Moving Toward Stillness is a collection based upon Dave Lowry's magazine articles over the last ten years or so, particularly from his highly regarded column in Black Belt magazine. Written from a nearly Japanese viewpoint, it offers an entertaining and informative view of the martial arts. Subjects explored include entering the martial Way, making the pursuance of traditional Asian martial arts a part of contemporary Western life, the paradoxes and conflicts such a path eventually generates, how to adjust to the mindset necessary for authentic mastery of a foreign art, and more.
