Happy Diwali! +++ The Butterfly Dragon III: The Two Dragons Act III +++ [Updated 30/9/2022: 6:00 PM EST]

Introduction This story which is the third book (or Act as I'm calling it) is the conclusion of the Butterfly Dragon trilogy. This book will wrap up all the loose ends created during the course of the adventures of Heylyn, Alicia, Monique and Valerie over the three books and several short stories involving the characters. It will also bring back a number of characters from the previous two books to assist in overcoming the forces with which they're about to clash. Hidden forces whose presence I've been building up over the course of the first two Acts of the Dragon Butterfly story. As is the case with my previous Butterfly Dragon books, science will play a big part, especially in this book with the return of some of fan favourite characters, though the challenges they're about to face might be too much even for the legendary Butterfly Dragon herself. I hope that you enjoy what's in store. Bare with me as this story is written (mostly) live, with edits coming after I

A Great Meditation Session...

On Monday night I was fortunate enough to attend an online meditation training session hosted by the Shaolin Quanfa Temple Institute of Toronto in Chan-Dao Meditation, along with a full class of students.

The session was hosted by Master Dao Shi, Chief Instructor at the SQTI and focused on the stress management aspects of Chan Dao Meditation, with guided instruction on technique over three sessions as well as a lecture on stress management. 

The entire class lasted for a little over two hours and yielded great results for the class in attendance and for myself as well.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank SQTI, Shi Fu Dao Shi and everyone who attended. I'm very grateful that I had that opportunity and am very much looking forward to the next class.
