Unwind the circle.

We are not closed cycles. We live brief lives made of wind, not of earth and not of straight lines.

We assume solidity, channel perception, agree to don stone feet. Yet, around us is current (molecule) and vibration (collision) - flow, not stasis. Our lives are lived suspended in such things, flexible, changeable, always in motion.

This river of wind is a million hidden currents, the expanding singularity. Any moment of release is simply immersion in it and surrender to it.

For when we walk with the wind, we are the wind. We are not eroded or shaken by what impacts us, nor are we flooded and swept away. We become permeable beings. We bend, surround, shift, and open. We let what is pass through us and from us, always reshaping to the current.

As we absorb it, process it, and project it, it overarches us. It becomes our ecstasy, our story, our mundanity, our transmutation. The connections that are hidden from us by our agreements, catch our notice. The entirety and fluidity of our spiral becomes clear.

Windwalking.com and WindWalking Arts are proud to present those who WindWalk - who teach, express and live this passion and balance.

"Only there is a doorway in the wall - a black doorway: The eye's pupil. Through that doorway came Crow."
- Ted Hughes

The Wind as Story, translated through overarching mythic constructs is Glyph. This is an exploration of the common resonance in the eternal, the nuturing of the storytelling traditions.
"... wake with those who awoke or go on in the dream, reaching the other shore of the sea which
has no other shore." - Pablo Neruda

The Wind as The Wind, taken in its rawest form without structure, goal, or attachment to purpose, is Anima. This is an exploration of the raw, unconscious dance, the sheer fire of creation.
"At the limit of a man, the earth will disappear"
- Paul Auster

The Wind as Life, channeled into the flesh of the mundane is Banyan. This aspect is an exploration of the entanglements of real-world moments and real-life issues, the grounding of the infinite directly into the applicable.
"We are what we have thought for years"
- Buddha

The Wind as the Way, taken as the sacred in-between, channeled as ineffable and unknowable is Wakan. This is an exploration of the personal and divine connection to the whole and the quest to transcend the difference.

The Garden of the Netherwhen

"And all is quiet. Its the kind of quiet that has always been, the First Quiet... Or so they tell us. For all is noise now, and within such rattling and jabbering, within such frantic rushing towards the next moment, within such drunken flight from each unstable precipice, we have missed the Story. We have missed the pause between heartbeats. We have forgotten the First Quiet. We have lost the in-between."
(excerpt and graphic from William Cooper/Netherwhen)

Walkabout

"Our moments swim in infinite sensation, whole universes contained in a heartbeat. We walk the spiral below them and through them, luminescent watercolour smears against the fluidness of our surroundings, each cycle curving the same arc as when the first step began. I began writing Walkabout in 1997 as a travelogue. Four years, and 100 updates later, it still serves as a catharsis, a release, a reflecting point, and as my constant companion."
(excerpt and graphic from William Cooper/Walkabout)

Patrick's eJournal

"I am a travel writer and what I mean by that is I write when I travel - or is that I travel to write? Of the couple hundred or so journal entries you'll find here just a few were tapped out between journeys. I'm not sure why this happens, why I don't write when stationary. It's not that I don't have the time for it (I do). It's not that I work extra hard while travelling to keep the writing habit up (I don't). Writing things down is important to me, but somehow that mode of expression asserts itself most strongly when the world is streaming by. I don't question it much."

nmazca

"That the human mind can conceive of such emptiness and energy is a wondrous gift. It is an indication of each person's potential for boundless understanding, and I hope that everyone will come to realize (or reacquaint themselves with) this potential at some point in their lives. In order to achieve this understanding...you simply have to stop and see, to acknowledge and testify to, the glory of what lies beyond... and which resides within you, which is and envelops you, at this moment."

Glyph : the symbolic, the overarching archetype, the mythic aspect. Here the wind is told from generation to generation, forever reborn, resonating instinctually as the stuff of Story.
Wakan : the sacred, the heart of the sky, the divine aspect. Here the wind becomes the Mystery, the totality glimpsed in facets, the source of mysticism, the fathomless depth.
Anima : the true soul, the breath of life, the raw aspect. Here the wind becomes the dance and the dream, the pure and unaltered essence, the unconscious whole.
Banyan : a single tree with many trunks and common roots, the collective memory, the tangible aspect. Here the wind becomes the step to step minutia of split-seconds, the foot on the path, the interface.
