Vol1-the revised version

About the author:
I was born and raised in semi-rural Pennsylvania starting in the mid-fifties. After High school I was accepted at Tyler School of Art on a photography portfolio. I switched my major to Painting because I liked the philosophical content associated with Painting and I painted for about 20 years. In 1979 after finishing at Tyler I started my art career by moving to LA. Part of my painting process involved meditation to clear the mind before the physical act of painting. Meditation had been a general interest since being introduced to it in early adolescence by various books in my father's library on Zen, as well as the Whole Earth Catalog stories about meditating Hippies. Subsequent to that early exposure to the concept of meditation I had begun to study Tae Kwon Do in Junior High where some meditation was included to help increase concentration for martial arts performance.
After moving to LA there was little money, but there was more time to be alone so I could "do" meditation as a mental prelude for "creative" activity. Then in the mid-eighties I was introduced to a type of clairvoyant meditation by the Clearsight program. I spent about five years with the clairvoyant meditation school; in the process it introduced me to the concept of "healing" as a form of self-exploration and for helping others.
In my search for a deeper approach to life and energetics I found out about Qi Gong from books that I found at Emperor's College of Traditional Oriental Medicine. After about a year of reading and trying to do various Qi Gong exercises/meditations on my own I began the Master's of TOM at ECTOM in '94. The ECTOM program strongly emphasized the importance of doing spiritual cultivation for the development of our abilities to help people. After I graduated from that program I was doing a Qi Gong class there in 2000 and the teacher suggested that we stay to hear a "meditation master" speak . . . as I tried to leave, the founder of the college came to the door and suggested that I sit down. The rest of that story follows in the book, Surfing the Timeless Wave.
A few years after graduating from ECTOM I returned to participate in the first Doctoral cohort ('04 - '06) to do a clinical doctorate in Oriental Medicine (DAOM), that was a challenging experience due to the newness of the program. Since then to the present day I have been involved in clinical supervision at two Oriental Medicine schools in LA.

Meditation for Now with YH Kim

Authored by Fritz Hudnut
Photographs by Friitz Hudnut, Corinne Nolin

A revised and updated edition of this book was released in 2013 and has been retitled as "Vol1" in the STTW series. This '09 edition, the original book, has been written to introduce the first year and a half of meditation sessions that the writer, Fritz Hudnut, DAOM, L.Ac., attended with mr. YH Kim--self-described simply as a, "helper." It is based on notes taken during or soon after a series of tri-weekly meetings with him that occurred in 2000 and 2001 at Emperor's College in Santa Monica, CA. The core intent of his sharing demonstrated the real "zen" aspiration of living fully in the eternal Now--for meditation in daily life. As such, for this writer it started a process of finding, not seeking, a way in to life and then on to approaching the infinite reality that deeply supports all life. Those first sessions were spoken mostly in Korean with translation made roughly into English. This writer has attempted to reproduce the meaning and intent of those words so that others might learn to share the miracle that is freely available to anyone interested in contacting Life in its ultimate expressions. This first edition book remains available to show the journey . . . which continues on.
